Myriad Studio Blog
Yes, Yellow Eye (i) Design was meant to be the creative team at cornerstone chandler, but everyone already updates their own blogs. I’d like to continue using this blog to post the Cornerstone work and personalities. However, I do have one of my own now that is more straight up and has more of my outside of Cornerstone work as well. Check it out.
Teaser #1 is here. This particular shot needed an arm because it was shot hand held and presented some pretty difficult problems. Otherwise, it will do what it needs to, encourage thoughts and discussion. Thoughts are always welcome. For more information, go to myriadstudio.com/blog
We had 1.5 days to knock out a promo for our “sun stand still” series. I had Chaz, a friend and co-worker, stand in for this shoot. The hardest part was getting a matte painting and a burning sun in the time I had to work on this. So with some heavy color effects to blend in the empty spots, I think it came out pretty good. Chaz did a good job and it was another long day in After Effects. Continue reading

What we are really getting at here is, you can color correct in most of your editing or post applications. What about rich color styles? Vignettes? Two programs side by side; Apple’s Color and Red Giant’s Looks. Continue reading
During one of our ‘creative breaks’ I filmed josh and promise kicking the ball around. We do not have a strange gate, brick building or mountain behind those walls. I added them later. It is really hard to add extensions behind objects and usually you plan green screen spots to make the process easier. This procedure will be heavily used in the Flood Short Film.

Matt looks flustered. The Legacy Set.
Last Saturday Matt and I were out in the heat for the morning working on the legacy video piece. I haven’t written about this part of ‘flood’ because it’s more corporate and not as creative. However, I think it went really well. The idea was to get some testimonies in the huge empty lot across the street from cornerstone. I wanted a black couch with the building soft and in the background. I used a Canon HDV camera to get some candid footage, b-roll, and side profile shots. Anyway, here is a photo of the ‘set’. I will put the final video up after it’s edited. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to log tape! Continue reading
I made some quick drawings of what the story would look like. These are obviously some quick sketches, but it helps tell the story visually to the decision makers, camera crews, 3D artists and actors. I left out a lot of b-roll and extra footage, but I might draw them later just to make sure it’s all there. Love to hear the feedback. If this doesn’t make sense, maybe you should read the screen play i posted last week. Cheers. Continue reading
