UWOL 40- Postcard Collection by Mike Sims

No plot. No story. No narration of any kind. Nothing new here. Boring. I first animated a book for the UWOL Longform. It was pretty crude by comparison. This was mostly an exercise in planning and completing a Challenge video- something I hadnít been able to do much lately. It was also good to brush up on the animation. I was unable to get some clips I had intended and ended up using placeholder footage instead. It was all either stuff I had previously showed you or which was shot for earlier Challenges I was unable to complete. Trond can judge admissibility. All of the postcards were real postcards with the exceptions of the ones I made for transitions. Please leave feedback at any level- it all helps. Here is one last postcard for you. What is it? Lost mail? Program guide? Script?

Sorry, I didn't get it. Please send again to the address you sent the upload info. Messages directly through dvinfo never reach me for some reason.

Re: UWOL 40- Postcard Collection by Mike Sims

Loved the animation, I wanted to do something animated for my entry but I'm just not knowledgeable enough.
The theme was there although no story but the images were terrific, North America has such a diverse assortment of wildlife compared to here in Ireland.
Have to say i'm not a big fan of jazz! so that was one part i wasn't keen on, however overall really liked it.

Nice one

Rob

Hi Mike,

You really have brushed up your animating skills, that's for sure! Was cool to see.
I disagree that there is no story in here. The way I see it, every animal had it's own story about what it was doing. It was nice to see such a variety in the wildlife you have there.

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed watching your film.

Re: UWOL 40- Postcard Collection by Mike Sims

Footage shot earlier or not, I sure enjoyed watching each postcard, Mike! The bear, beautiful howling coyote, and mountain lion footage made my jaw drop; how thrilling to see them, let alone capture them on video. Thinking I remember the spider footage--seems like you called it a drop door spider. (?) It was hardly boring, on the contrary, it was great seeing video postcards of your work again.

Mike,

have n't been here for a coons age, something I intend to change.

Thought Id seen the footage before, but that aside you did a brillant job putting this together.

I always liked your work and this is no exception.
what did you use to make the book graphics?

totally enjoyed it all but my favorite footage is the bear!!!!

hope to see more in the future.
