They aren't all horror movies...

Sure, it's fun to make demon books and werewolf teeth, but sometimes these film projects need something a little less monstrous.  The film I'm working on this weekend needed three different, non-copyrighted jars of peanut butter, so I played around in Photoshop and ran off some new labels to fit the jars the director bought.

I like quick projects like this because you get to see the results and move on to the next one.

Pumpkin Practice

Since it came up recently on the CalHauntS NorCal email list, here's a short example of my version of a talking pumpkin with a little glimpse of how it's done. It still needs some polishing, particularly towards the end, but I like the way this looks better than some of the other ones I've seen. It's more how I picture a carved pumpkin would move, and I like that the movements are based on something real, rather than some computer program that analyzes the sound wave.
