What a loser-lips. What kind of fanny pack fan has a collection of only 5 fanny packs? Idiot.

In an attempt to narrow my focus, I have selected 10 narratives that I have created within the last few years. By examining these 10 narratives I hope to find recurring themes, characters, and narrative structures. This process is meant to reveal what I have been drawn to in my storytelling, and provide me with themes that I may wish to explore more deeply in fourth year. I will start by...

Lighting is turds
I’ve began filming my bladder. You’d be surprised at how painless such a process would be! I’m about half way through her dialogue and I’ve ran into relatively few problems. Because I am working in room 288, I’ve had to work under the flickering of fluorescent lights. Ideally I would have the room dark, but Kate kindly unscrewed some of the lights so that any...

Written Descriptions, Summaries & Concept Art
1. Initial observations and in-class writing: I think it was clear that I had fun with the writing portion of this assignment, and I find that this is often the case. Writing is a quick way to produce a great amount of imagery and characterization without feeling anxious about committing yourself to any one idea. I chose my own work because it was arguably the most character driven piece,...

Lonely Little Teacup. from Linnea Sterte on Vimeo.
Due to unforeseen technical errors, I haven’t been able to upload my brigade of Cutie Gremlins. They can be seen floating around in the third Canada Line clip, as well as chillin’ in the coda clip. Terribly sorry for that… There was going to be a Cutie Gremlin Extravaganza featuring sparkling gems, a braces-wearing dinosaur, and a lot of dancing, but alas, finicky computers...
Here is a beautiful shimmering gem. Quality animation right there!
The Group of Group Work
I may sound overly critical about the Canada Line project and the way in which we came at it, but I can easily say that the group of people I got collaborate with were all very strong, and easy to work with. I couldn’t point to a single person in our group that didn’t make an effort to make our piece as strong as it could be. Lou did a fantastic job compositing the parade walk cycles...
I had a lot of frustration in the making of the Canada Line project. Knowing that every week, our ideas would take a massive conceptual hit to accommodate the ideas of the other groups made it very difficult to commit yourself to an idea that your individual group had planned. I still think that it was really unfortunate that Janice and Colleen were so adamant to have each film linked through...
We’s all done bro’s! We’s all done! I’m really happy with the final product, despite my many initial hang ups about the project. I still don’t really know what we were trying to say with this piece; all meaning has been lost due to the way in which we had to collaborate, so I’d say we took a hit in that department. Nonetheless, the piece is really fun to...
Look at that mischievous lil smirk! The Floating Cutie Gremlin is all about playin’ tricks, like throwing your newborn child into a boiling stew at the bottom of a cliff, or giving all his pals scabies. What a joker! He’s always the life of the party, because if he’s not he’ll cover you in the blood of a mad cow when you sleep! AHAHAHA! That goof ball! Floating...
Group of Groups
The production team I am working with has come up with an initial idea that derives inspiration from the iconic parade scenes of Satoshi Kon’s ‘Paprika’. Below is the scene we’ve used as our point of departure. In dealing with the theme ‘Groups’ we gravitated towards the concept of both complete unity and utter chaos existing in the same entity (our...
Conflicted between gender expectations and his own desires, Red Monster is torn asunder.
Red Monster doing some acting. What a talent!
Comments on Red Monster
Now wipe the tears from your weary eyes and refocus your attentions to the meaning behind the emotional zenith of Red Monster’s Beautiful Death (test). With regards to the “Take A Walk” portion of the assignment, you can see I was most intrigued by the thoughts and emotions that were triggered by my sit in the park and much less about my actual physical environment. I very...
Try not to cry. Your mascara will run.
I have not stopped watching Dylan Hayes’ “Playing for Keeeps” since I first saw it on Cartoon Brew this summer. The sound design coupled with the deceptively simple, crude animation techniques give this film such a strong atmospheric presence. Please check out his website as well. His stuff drives me crazy! I love it!
Amalgamated Segments: Take a Walk
I went to the pyramid park on Granville Island for the first time since 1st year. This was one of the first places I visited besides Emily Carr on the island when my design class was sent out to find unique places and report about them. I remember being very self-conscious while sketching the trees and lampposts fearing that when we returned to class to show our drawings that mine would be...
