Just posting on this blog once more to link you to my most recent online endeavor - my YouTube gaming channel -

Basically, I'll focus more on indie games such as Terraria, Starbound, Cube World and such, but I also intend to do "actual games". For instance, Dead Space and such....

Do check it out, share it around and subscribe, if you're so inclined to!

Stop Motion Animation - 1st Online Test

Hi, everyone.

For those who stick around, I have something for you - A Stop Motion Animation test. This is the first test I will be putting online (first of many).

I did it yesterday, using a BMW HotWheels car model. After readjusting the frame and connecting everything nice and tight, I added fake motion blur (AE users - Direction Blur).

I hope you enjoy it

Take care,

Filipe Monteiro

LEAVE THIS BLOG, IT'S NOT THE ONE I USE ANYMORE. NEW ONE. Also, here's my e-mail, for all your comments. Send them to me, instead.

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

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.
