imgshuffle

I’ve finally arranged my image shuffling script into a form that can be downloaded and used by others. It is dependent on fancybox and jquery in it’s current form, while the fancybox functionality could be easily removed by removing those libraries from the directory. The rest of the code is my own. If you click on the “Graphics” button on this site, or any of the subcategories there, you can see how it works. It takes a list of images and properties and reorders them on every page reload.

You can also view a generic version of the script in action here. I’ve packaged that version, with sample images from Death To Stock in a .zip, and you can have it for free under an MIT licence by downloading from Github.com here.

This whole idea and project is finally, truly complete, and that feels good.

Book Cover Design – The Stanislavski System

The animation below demonstrates an original book cover design I created for “The Stanislavski System,” written by Sonia Moore and published by Penguin Books. Stanislavski’s ideas have become so prevalent in the world of acting and directing, that they’ve been referred to simply as “The System,” or “The Method.” This cover reads as either “The Stanislavski System” or “The System” at first glance. “Stanislavski” is often alternatively spelled “Stanislavsky” in English.

Media 46 TV Production

I just finished Media 46 TV Production at Santa Monica College. Someone snapped this photo of me with a nineties era 35mm camera about four weeks in. We shot a lot of college basketball, a puppet show, and a few talk shows. I was kind of hoping to get a TV job after this, so I need to actually apply for one. If I have, and you’re here for that reason, I can operate a camera, video switcher, mics/audio, lights. I am not intimidated by large quantities of cable, and I have excellent color acuity.

Reset

I had a blog going here.

I decided to change my permalinks to the kind with descriptive urls, instead of query strings. I’m reluctant to dig into the task of redirecting every post or messing with the old database, so I’ll just start again today and progress into the future.

A summary of what was here before:

• I didn’t know where to specifically direct my efforts professionally.

• I talked about this website. It’s a fancybox gallery and a wordpress sharing a theme that I wrote. It’s really a heavily edited version of Kubrick. I got really excited about randomizing the order of divs in my homepage at one point.

• There were photos, that are mostly also on instagram. I’m @ohokphil there.

• The best part was the music. I embedded a lot of tracks from my soundcloud. They are original compositions, self produced, and I’m proud of them. My name there is Regularhands.

What will come of this space, I hope, is something more truthful; at least honest, if inaccurate. The freedom of thought and speech I now enjoy is a well of power.
