#371: Color Grading

July 2, 2009

Notes from the Manager

In case you're not up on your new movies (or don't live in the States or something), the movie they're watching is Michael Mann's Public Enemies, which stars Johnny Depp as John Dillinger, opposite Christian Bale as Melvin Purvis, the man in charge of the investigation that kind of just killed him instead of actually bothering to bring him to justice. (Oops.) Here's the trailer:

The use of handheld digital video cameras on Public Enemies has caused something of a movie-geek controversy, in part because some people think it's inappropriate to use digital video on a period film at all (which I think is silly) and in part because some people think the movie looks like shit.

Me, I'll save my comments for Monday, after Lydia and the gang have had a chance to discuss it first, but I will say this: if you don't mind the way it looks, the story is terrific, and the actors are great.

Production on Book Three is winding down

Thursday, January 12, 2017

I thought I’d share this one publicly, rather than just to the Kickstarter and Patreon folks. It’ll be used as the “chapter illustration” for the back matter — which means that it will be directly opposite the last page of the comics in Book Three.

Anyway. I just have a couple of illustrations (the cover and the cover/chapter illustration for Chapter 15) before production is officially wrapped — which means I’ll be moving on to proofreading, pre-press, and  other boring stuff next! BUT there will be movie review comics and things like that going up at Kickstarter and Patreon during that time.
