JAZZ


This post really should be about writing, I'm still not online at home so I can't furnish you with pictures or drawings of any sort. As well--I've run out of time. I'm leaving for a vacation on sunday. So what's to become of this blog between now and then? Not much I'm afraid until I can scan some stuff in, and anyway, I'm busy tying up loose ends. Needless to say, this makes it difficult to show any sort of progression as far as my portfolio film goes--

Oh well. A few more before I leave. We'll skip writing for now and say that it was very difficult and time consuming and in many ways the most fun. But of course along with it came the problem of finding suitable music for my short. I surveyed jazz and blues and dixieland music, but had a tough time finding something in the spirit of what I'd envisioned. What was peppy like Toot Whistle Plunk & Boom?

From the pages of my sketchbook, some jazzy research sketches. I think my favourite is Mr. Jimmy Smith, about halfway down. I hope y'all dig.
