Rough Edit

Here is a rough edit we put together of our documentary. It’s nowhere near finished, as we still need to get one or two more interviews for the project. It’s more like a guideline of what we need to fix and add or remove.

Tattoo & Interview

Things are rolling along; yesterday I went to Idle Hand Tattoo with Casey and managed to get a tattoo and interview with my artist Austin. All I can say is I am very happy with how things went. We got some great footage, now time to create a story out of it!

Core Concept

We’ve honed down our core concept to a nice little statement. This will be the backbone of our documentary, helping us decide what makes it in and what we will need to show.

Concept:
Sam Fischer shares the meaning of his tattoos and the stories behind the artists that create them.

 

All Healed!

My rose that I got from Austin back in the beginning of February has been healed for about three weeks; I guess I got a little lazy about posting an after picture, sorry!

Here it is! It is my favorite tattoo at the moment, and I can’t wait to get more from Austin ¬†through the years. Above it is my own design, and to the left is a rendition of California, both done by Bryan Randolph at Spider Murphy’s.healed

So Now What?

Haven’t posted in a little while, so I guess I’ll give an update on the project. After the midterm last week, all work will go towards a 1-2 minute pitch of my project. Here is a rough little storyboard I put together today for lab. I’m sure it will change as it develops, but this is the best I could come up with.

My rose from Austin is all healed up (will post a picture back at home), and I’m definitely looking to get some more art real soon (thanks Valentine’s Day weekend for keeping us restaurant servers busy and well-tipped!). I’m hoping to get in another interview with Austin in before the final, and of course start putting together my pitch as soon as I can.

The hardest part is deciding what to get zapped on my body next!

Bay Area Convention of the Tattoo Arts

While doing some research, I found the Bay Area Tattoo Convention, which up until I started getting ink I would never think about. It looks like a tattoo junkies heaven, and I’m even considering attending the convention this year. It will be held in the SFO Hyatt Regency October 25-27, and is $20 per day.

There will be special guests such as Ed Hardy himself to do a lecture and a seminar by renowned artist Shige from Yellow Blaze Tattoo in Yokohama, Japan.

Here is a short trailer of last year’s convention:
