Last week was a flurry of preparation at Aurelia: Edge of Darkness. Lisa gives the weekly update and shares info on the upcoming beta launch . . . and how you (or a would-be actor you know) can participate in telling the story.
This week we shot our first interview videos for Aurelia: Edge of Darkness. While we have a few kinks to iron out (figuratively and literally!), we learned a lot and captured some great content. Here’s a peek behind the scenes of our fantastic, mid-process mess as character coach Kelly Cook shares tips for a great acting experience. Photo by Peter Henckel.
Julie Roth is one of the artists working on the show. Here’s how Julie describes her work:
“I am an Illustration Major and recent graduate from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, 2013. I possess a wide variety of artistic disciplines that include traditional 2D media, graphic design, model building and digital rendering. My passion lies in landscapes and conceptual worlds, often mixed with architecture and the human form. I am an avid hiker and backpacker. I find much of my inspiration and ideas by exploring the unbeaten paths buried within our beautiful National Parks.
“I like to create my work traditionally, using primarily pen and india ink. Digital rework is used to construct complex compositions and enhance the final product. Clients should buy my services if they are searching for an energetic, playfully dark, and complex visual solution to conceptual subjects. Bold colors and a graphic line quality also describe my aesthetic. Though I prefer traditional media, I am efficient within the Adobe Creative Suite.”
Milwaukee artist Allison Westbrook is hard at work on a beautiful map of Aurelia. But until then, here’s a peek at the sketch I (Lisa) recently did to give Allison a sense of some of the major landmarks he’ll need to cover inside the city. This is how everything creative starts: with a sketch, an idea, a messy collection of “maybes” that turn into something beautiful. Thankfully, we have Allison’s talent on hand, to turn this chicken scratch “maybe” into a “something” work of art.
