House Of Cards

It’s been a while since my last impulsive, late night post. So long I had trouble remembering the login password. I’m in now, so before the spontaneity of it all completely diminishes, here it is.

House of Cards - Joseph Byford

The shot is inspired by this guy, Andrew B. Myers , whose work I really do like. Haven’t yet put my finger on why, but I suppose, like all the stuff I’m drawn too, melancholy is the dominant theme.

As a side note, I have recently updated my website. It showcases my professional portfolio as well as some selected personal projects. Check it out.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Yet another experiment making animated gif’s in CS5. Striving to achieve the dreamlike effect I wanted I consulted google and learned how to overlay two separate animations. With this new trick,  as well as a heavy amount of masking, I managed to get the fan to rotate in the opposite direction to its own shadow. Although not immediately obvious, I think it helps achieve that surreal, dreamlike feel. The shoot was fun too, equally as time consuming.
