I recently watched The Kings of Summer. The film really impressed me with its specificity and ability to really communicate what is like to be on summer vacation as an adolescent male. It made me think and reflect on my own childhood summers.
Summers in Indiana are hot.
My mom would drop me off at my grammies where Id hang out with my cousins.
We had a couple friends in the neighborhood whom we played with everyday.
We Only had a couple bikes but we made due.
I was obsessed with Allen Iverson at the time he was a smaller player and gave me hope of one day making the league.
I look back on those days now and even though all of my friends didn't make it to 2013. I'm happy I was able to spend that time with them.

The school year seems to be barreling to a close Im currently scrambling to finish my final assignments but mainly focusing on bettering the story for my senior film. Over last semseter when I was developing story ideas for my film I created this character Olga " Copper Belly". It was a alternative history coldwar story that didn't quite come together. But I did really enjoy the character so I developed her a bit more and eventually one of my classmates asked to model the design.
Here is the model done by Maria Yi. You can check out more of her work here: http://mariayi.
Olga a.k.a Copper Belly. Is the only female Russian Commander. She was an orphan raised by wolves. Her stern face was carved by the knife like winds of the russian winter. As a child she had one hero, Joseph Stalin. (whom she met later on in life after single-handily protecting a small village from an invading army for 45 days.
Though she only shows her stern demeanor to her subordinates, she has a huge love for gloss red high heel shoes. The vast collection is always hidden away in her private quarters. She is a ruthless leader but respected by all of her men.

One of my goals for this project was to really do something fun. My number one goal was to do something that I would enjoy. I love having time to really create character and think about how they live their lives outside of the story that i tell on screen. One think i love to is sketch out how they would order coffee at Starbucks, and how they react if the barista gets the order wrong.
I had a lot of fun with this character and hope to do a few more stories with him in the future.
