It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted… even though “blog” is on almost every single to do list I make. In any case, at the request of my babi girl Kaley, I am posting even though I have about six hours of editing I should be starting on instead.
This video is super close to my heart because it was my first successful finished piece in After Effects for my Motion Graphics class. It’s taken from a scene in Gilmore Girls where Luke and Lorelai have a conversation about Star Wars.
WUT? Slating happens IRL?
My never-ending love for behind the scenes photos goes crazy when it’s combined with a film heavy on the effects. The idea of seeing something so magical in the middle of the process is a bit like watching a surgery. But less gross.
My very thoughtful friend Tim Lovegrove passed these photos along to me, and there are so many that I’m going to have to split them up in to multiple posts.
That last one is my favorite. They have such a beautiful love story. I’ve been overdoing it on the rom-coms this summer, but in my opinion this particular romance is right up there with “You’ve Got Mail”.
You know, I feel like I should mention that I’m not like, a crazy Star Wars fanatic. Someone who doesn’t know anything about me but visits my blog often might think that. It’s misleading, because I post so much about it, simply because there is so much Star Wars stuff out there online for me to post about. I have the dvds and I watch them a normal amount, and I really enjoy science fiction and I admit that the Star Wars trilogy is kind of the holy grail. But, honestly, I have always preferred The Lord of the Rings, and sometimes even Harry Potter over both of those.
…And Twilight. Just kidding.
If Luke Skywalker had a facebook…
