Hm.. hello.

Hey, everyone.

Yeah, well.. the whole blogging thing when out the window, once again. Faaantastic.

Anyways, I'm sick. Just wanted to let you guys know. It's pretty interesting to be sick again, since it hasn't happened in quite some time now.
When I was younger, like.. back in the 5th, 6th grade, I used to get sick. Like, a lot. But, as years progressed, I started getting less and less sick.

By the way, I apologize if my phrase construction isn't going along that smoothly, I get like that when I'm sick.

Well.. other than that.. the VFX thing is pretty much dead, due to lack of time to practice. Recently, it's been music that's been occupiyng most of my time.

Well.. I'm off. At least you can count on non-regular blog posts. You can count on my irregularity. Faaantastic.

Love you all.

Hey, everyone. I haven't given you anything in a lot of time now..

Well, I'd like to write a small blog post so that you could still get the sense I'm still alive. Well... here I am.

I made a video a while back. It's not online yet. It involves Lightsabers and lasers. I think you'll enjoy it. Also I'll be shooting an alternative ending to it as soon as I get the time. Hopefully, soon.

We have a MacBook Pro here at home now, so, my VFX will be made in Macs.
I have a few more knowledge in sound recording and mixing. I will be recording and uploading some music projects. I have already recorded some things but none of them are online yet, but you can't count on some of these things, hopefully soon.

No updates on getting a video-camera. I'm still using a Sony CyberShot, which shoots at 320x240. It's not very good but it's decent.

My visual effects skills are evolving as I grow and I try more intricate things. Sadly, none of the VFX work I have online is recent, up to date or any good =P
But I'll get to it.

About Twitter - I might use it once in a while, but I haven't used it since I got back from camp in August. We'll see if I'll start using it again regularly.

- I'll use it regularly as I make more videos. I'm considering a VideoBlog thing.

Website - Will have updates as I make new stuff, but this is the "official" Lo-Budg Productions Blog =)

Well, I'll talk to you soon, I hope. It seems that, everytime I start a blog, I quickly let it go.

I'll try to be more regular to you guys.
Take care

Follow me on Twitter

Hey, everyone. Hope you are all doing well...

I'm sorry I haven't continued "April Come she Will"... don't worry, I'll still do the months I am short before August =P

I would like to invite my readers (or people who are just checking this out =P) to start following on Twitter. I update regularly, so you guys can know kinda what I'm doing.

Well... that's it, for now =)

Blues Festival

Hey, guys, here's some news from last night

I went to a Blues Festival. It was fantastic... it featured Little Albert Boogie Band and Diunna Greanleaf and Blue Mercy. They all played marvelously well, but it was Diunna and her band that got us dancing.

I took some pictures with my phone, but I haven't gotten the chance to put them on the computer, but I'll upload them later. The picture above shows Diunna Greenleaf & Blue Mercy playing at the 2008 American Folk Festival in Bangor, Maine.

It was really fantastic, Diunna had a great interaction with the public and awesome interaction on stage with the musicians.

It was really a great experience, and I can't wait to hear them again.

New Site


On Thursday, I made a VFX Test of an Energy Ball. It is the 1st VFX Test to be hosted on my new website, Lo-Budg Productions.

Here's the video, linking to the website.

Oh, by the way... happy Valentine's Day.

Lo-Budg Production Website in the works

Hey, everyone.

It's finally happened... a website. It's made in a free hosting site but I have no ads there, which is awesome...

It will serve as an archive for VFX Tests and, more importantly, High Resolution Video Tutorials about, not only Adobe After Effects, but Adobe Photoshop, Maxon Cinema 4D, and possibly others.

This blog will always be alive and I will keep updating it, I won't abandon it. I will still post details about what I do, in both personal life aspects and movie production aspects.

All you have to do is make sure that, while checking this blog, you check the Website from now on. I'll be making new blog posts as I create more videos and such and, instead of linking them to YouTube, or FileFront, I will upload some files to directly to the website server, such as zip files with High Resolution video tutorials and as for the videos, I will still upload them to YouTube and link them to my website.

The link to the, under-construction, website is this - Lo-Budg Productions
