Today I screened my first animation short at a chilean Flash film festival (Flash Attack @ CineHoyts). The animation was created exclusively for the event in just 3 days, so it’s actually no good.
It wasn’t a competition, so there where no prizes. But I got applause, the best prize for me.
Talk about never checking the referrers! Just found out I’m linked on these sites. Just linking back for love: H23 (a very talented friend of mine), Disforia, Ventilate.ca, and SubFlash.
This website has just been mentioned at nomaster.com. (Thanks guys!)
A week turned into a month and now I’ve decided to stay in Chile until the end of the year. The spring is just starting over here, so I moved back to the beach town of Zapallar. I’m starting to catch up with work just now. On the bright side of news I’ve just been commissioned to do the website for the Chilean Museum of Precolombian Art.
My father, Leonardo Prieto Vial, died today. I will be unreachable for the next week.
I’m flying this evening to Santiago to be with my family.
In just 5 days I built SPOON.CL. It took me another week to conceptualize and model it. It is far from finished and I plan to constantly improve and retouch it, but at least it is 100% functional and ready to use. I really need feedback (even at this early stage) so just jump to the bottom and SPEAK UP!
Just lost 2 days of work because of the massive blackout. It caught me in the Subway. 2 hours underground, 1 hour inside the car and another hour escaping through the tracks. An amazing adventure, it’s sad I didn’t have my camera with me. I had to walk, through the tracks, with some other 200 people from 4th Street station to Broadway (F line). Unbelievable. The city that never sleeps had one long nap.
Just posting that I am alive and singing in New York. I’m staying here for as long as possible (my VISA says January 2004).
Having spent the past couple of weeks in London, and enjoyed it thoroughly, my plans have slightly changed, and I’ve rented an apartment in New York, so I’m leaving tomorrow evening to start using it!
On the projects side, two great news: TWIST Films and ELEMENTAL are officially online! Go check them out and give me some feedback.
I’ve been in London for the past couple of days, but as soon as I got here, my PowerBook wouldn’t power up. After a quick visit to an AppleCare the problem was fixed. So I’m back on track now. Planning to stay in London for at least 15 days. After that, off to Paris.
Still giving the final polishing touches to TWIST Films, but I believe it is complete. Also working for Muaythai (my first northamerican client), Mutante Discos, ELEMENTAL, and of course CHC and Being a Being.
My mobile phone number in the UK (and for all of Europe) is: +44-7818246154.
