My song is You Can’t Quit Me Baby by Queens of the Stone Age.
It’s a love song.

GDSP #5See all of the submissions for this prompt HERE.

The lovely peeps at GDSP are doing a retrospective of some of the work submitted over the last two years, and here’s one of mine.
Bless.
You choose a prompt, you make an image it’s that simple.
I’m posting this again as a reminder to myself to have a go at it again.
The instruction for this particular one was from withoutpretense and went:
for portrait number five, i would like you to choose a song that is important to you. find the emotion it stirs up in you and run with it. show me how you listen to it, show me what it makes you feel, show me what it makes you want to do. (for example, if i were to pick a judas priest song, i would ideally take a picture of myself slaying a dragon…but that’s sadly not possible…so i’d take a picture of myself driving down the highway going 88mph and holding my fist up in the style of Rob Halford, rocking out with all of my might.)
for this prompt, in particular, video would be fantastic, because i’m certain that many of you would be inspired to dance, or move around in some manner; however, it is not necessary.
please make sure that in the description of your portrait, you include the artist & song you have chosen as your inspiration.

Get the idea?

Guest-Directed Self-Portrait #7

Directed by MortalCompass

You will flip a coin.

"Heads" - Inside

"Tails" - Outside

Heads

Inside Prompt:
Take one photo right before going to bed and one right after waking up through one evening of sleep. Post both in a set or place side by side in a single image with Photoshop/Gimp etc and post that.

If you have a tripod, I would prefer that you use it. That way, each shot is from an identical angle and shows the change in your bed area over one evening of rest. If not, then an attempt should be made to have it show your space in more or less the same position as the night before.

I seem to have broken a few rules. But I do not have a tripod, and never just take “one photo”, so there we are.

Wonders of the Universe, Series Trailer - BBC Two (by BBC)

OK, I’ve had a cup of tea and a slice of cake so I’m slightly calmer now, I’ll explain a bit more fully:

I work at BDH making CGI for television, which can involve making all sorts of things, from visualizing thought to animating bouncing sex toys.

Last year we were lucky enough to work on a miraculous programme called “Wonders of the Universe”, hosted by Professor Brian Cox, and produced by the BBC.

For someone who grew up on Carl Sagan, Star Trek and Doctor Who it was a very special experience for me personally. 

I was largely responsible for star surfaces, coronal loops and solar flares.

So now the work we did has been nominated for a Visual Effects award at the Television Craft BAFTAs, alongside Great Expectations, Inside the Human Body, and… DOCTOR fucking WHO.

So today couldn’t really get more awesome.

(There is 15 minute edit of just the work we did here, and a lovely playlist of clips from the actual series here, in case you are unfamiliar with it’s  magic.)

Did I mention I just had cake?
