Second Documentary

Helllow universe

I finally finished the second documentary with my good friend and writer Marcela Hervia about the homeless issue in Manchester. (About 3 weeks a go but haven’t got time to blog!) When me and Marcela finished the first video it wasn’t any news about any good shelter for them but now there are news that empty buildings will be open for them so hopefully the promises are genuine and we won’t see anyone sleeping rough in this cold winter.

The main thing for me that kept me thinking A LOT is seeing young people on the streets that is not good for the future of a city because those young people are the future. In any situation they need help and direction and I hope they will be taken seriously to be out of the streets and get their lives back.

I don’t know why being homeless became a badge and the forever dark at the end of the tunnel when as a human we know life has ups and downs and everybody deserve help and chances to live as long as they are breathing.

I will write about it soon but … yeah … it just broke my heart watching people living in the streets in the Manchester and as it gets worst from more than 5 years a go till now.

I also made a short comedy animation from one of my short pieces at Commonword Identity writing workshop.

It will be screened at CAN‘s “Community Spirit” event at Mad lab and in Filmonik at old corner house (MMU) and I will upload in youtube soon.

I just invite everyone to watch my documentary just below and let’s not think about the BUSY schedule before Christmas and … yeah I’m fine and I will write about it soon.

Video Showreel & one in a festival

grand_universe_by_antifan_real

Hello universe 🙂

My short documentary that I made with my friend Marcela Hervia is showing in Kino Festival in Manchester that feels great. (Wed 28th at Three Minutes Theatre 7 p.m)

I would like to raise the awareness by showing to more people and it’s just the start to hopefully end the homelessness in Manchester by looking after them and helping them. I will write about it more after the festival.

And also I made a showreel from my video works from 2011 till now that is available in the link below:

And I just need a bit rest in whole my life and plan to do some thing for my website not just this blog and bunch of update. But at last I am posting in these busy days of my life having adventure as I call them “placeless memories” that is so relatable to my situation. (And I just made up an English word from relate and yes let’s say relatable  🙂  )

I am doing good in my Korean studying and I am proud universe, I am proud that I can speak, read and write in Korean, just got the intermediate level but my research and my passion for Far East of Asia is on. As it is the only thing that left in my life  :l

beside the second year of Japanese and reading and writing …. That’s … let’s change the subject “How are you ddoooin universe?” (with the Joe accent of series of friends)

Happy New Year Universe!

It’s been a great year 2014 beside all the problems that I don’t want to go on my year review AT ALL, I am alive and healthy!

What’s better than that  🙂  is actually my new stop motion animation for second year of DO I.T. course at CAN (Community Art Northwest) in Manchester that i finished last year and it’s online.

And greater news is that it will be shown in Motion North that is a cool event to show case motion design and animation works but in a professional level and mine there is an unexplainable feeling.

I know I am still learning as a trainee in animation and graphic design but it means a lot to me and I will work on better animations in the future soon.

and here you go with its video:

Beside being sick in the holidays and missing Christmas lunch that became an other tragic story on the top of all the tragic stories of my life, I am out of my studying schedule that need a good planning and I am in a “Ookey, let’s begin” mode that you still didn’t fo the first step and a good planning.

because when ehat is left and stays for you to survive protect it and … I have no idea what I just wrote but that means I have to survive some how .. in life … yeah …

Wish everyone an amazing 2015 with lots of good GOOD news

Konnichiwa Universe …!

So Finally the Amaterasu animation project about the lovely deity of the sun finished.

Had the meeting yesterday and it got the road for the future and hopefully movies.

Again thanks to amazing Yuko and my amazing work place CAN 🙂

There is lots to do now to focus every thing, beside one of the animations that i animated a heart and it looks SO natural and I am so happy about.

My study schedule doesn’t look really good and it really needs time and working that I couldn’t do enough these days.

It’s not that bad but from my point of view am I satisfied? … NOPE. and that’s the thing.

I need work as much as I am satisfied and I need more planning.

but in the mean time it’s a pause and breathe that will help whole the thing.

🙂

I have to finish this post soon, need to get home early and I really like productive days.

So yes it’s done by me but the story of JPN mythology just began.

The meeting today with Yuko Howes the amazing Japanese lady from JSNW (Japanese Society of North West) was made me think of I forgot to add the photo of Japan Day!

So The Japan Day in Manchester was on 25th of August 2014 with lots different activities from showing martial arts to the costume contest mostly from animation and manga characters and information about the Japanese art (like craft and paintings and etc.) and culture.

And Yuko invited me being as the guest of fantastic tea ceremony of Japan and I absolutely LOVED it.

The adventure was cool and the venue “Midland Hotel” was great, and I think bigger venue was even better because LOTS of people came and yeah! … it was full with people who were interested in Japan and it made me super happy  🙂

Here are some photos:

And finally me as a Japanese warrior … Kind a … ^_^

Keep up the power

10414587_10205415828581922_7938665150682695448_n

Keep up the power

“Rise up the manner

Hold on the power”

Said sky to the water loudly

“Keep up the power

I am the manner

Mirror of your magneficence

For your beauty,

I am the ladder”

Whispered the water

Hoping the sky will listen

Sky still proud,

Showing off the power

And it’s just the clouds

Keeping the secrets

Of water’s whispers

So This weeks I am on more into getting a production schedule done …

When actually days not helping a lot and Monday and Tuesday nothing didn’t go with plan but I managed what needs to be done!

The thing is that even sometimes your doing good you need to be satisfied yourself that I wasn’t AT ALL … !

The deal is I am not feeling well recently and I have to accept it that I need more rest and take work easier and decrease the amount of stress I am giving my self.

I will definitely try my best this week and I know that I could manage all my schedule and it’s me who need to learn to chillax girl.

I am looking forward for tomorrow’s Do I.T. and getting on with the idea of my website that helps me to focus more and get on better with time management that I need to do.

The “Heart’s core”  and the ideas I am going to work on is the main thing for me now and I am thinking of new skills I got this year like Resolume and keeping up with “Technique at Contact Theatre really helping for my new videos I am going to produce.

The great experience of Co-Design project by Duct Tape university is an on going project too that I will definitely work on more because that’s gonna be a great structure for future projects and that’s what I need specially with our amazing team.

And I have to add these amazing Chinese life proverbs that:

万事开头难 wàn shì kāi tóu nán – All things are difficult before they are easy.

that yeah! … life seems difficult but common! … it’s easy (just repeat as a boost to survive in this life basically)

and last but not least:

花有重开日,人无再少年huā yǒu chóng kāi rì, rén wú zài shào nián, – Flowers may bloom again, but a person never has the chance to be young again. So don’t waste your time.

I may seem working hard but Dah! I am young and I am using these golden times (cool excuses right to be workaholic! .. I am AWESOME I KNOW 🙂  )

Power of music

1901266_10205378144759850_2331114461728353682_n

Power of Music

Like a piece of ice

Melting on a boiling lava

Drop by drop …

I drip to the music notes

I can’t stop listening

And as much as it melts me

I listen … over & over again

Then I become a part of lava

In a place that knows me the most

When I’m a stranger to all

I put my heads down

And I melt again …

I listen again …

And Its the lava that start melting

By the power of music

P.S Amaterasu “Goddess of the sun” animation finished!

I had a dramatic day because of some important things that needed to change at the last moment but I trusted my editing skills and VICTORY!

This is the first step of visualizing my research as part of Japanese mythology that again is the part of my research.

Hopefully by the beginning of 2015 I can came up with more focus research pattern and draft so I can step up for bigger projects.

Specially with starting working on my website it will get all better place.

It’s like giving the works a nice home and it feels good.

But now for the moment lots of projects is going on.

one big digital and graphic video for a massive performance project for the next 5 month

Digging on digital and social media world in DO I.T. this year
