TIWWI Tonight!

Hello! I am feeling very energetic on this lovely Saturday.  A few reasons for this joy – 1) I had a great headshots session with a friend this morning in Venice, 2) It’s a 3 day weekend, and 3) The TIWWI Show + Tell is TONIGHT!

You may remember me dicussing TIWWI (pronounced “tee-wee”) back when I posted stills from Jen’s movie, “I’ll Call You.”  TIWWI is essentially a co-op of people who like to create things – movies, photo projects, poems, whatever.  We collaborate with one another, work on projects, and then present our creations at a Show + Tell.  The Show + Tell is always so much fun! There is music, an open bar, photo charades, and of course, the screenings. I’m especially excited for tonight’s Show + Tell because we are screening a project I helped work on.  Jessica Kucinskas, Lauren Randolph, and myself collaborated on a photo flip book adventure called “Seafishing.”  It was the first time I ever did stop-motion animation photography, and it was an amazing learning experience.  Here are a couple of stills as a teaser…I’ll post a video of our project after tonight’s screening!

Lauren (www.photolauren.com) photographed the first half of the project and this awesome still:


I photographed the second half, shot from above:
