Well it's been a while I've updated anything personal on this blog, so how much more personal can one get by updating a photo of oneself.

The following photos were taken back in Dec'09 while working on my 11 sec December entry (which is yet to be completed). I was shooting my completed 2d frames at that time when I was suddenly zapped in the head and had this ridiculous idea of a 3rd person view self portrait. I was about to update it in Feb but came across the KL Photo awards which I thought I have a go at...... wished I'd spent the 80 bucks entry fee on buying DVD's instead.

Sita Sings The Blues

Finally got around to watch "Sita Sings the Blues" directed by Nina Paley.

Found it very refreshing, entertaining and really different from any animated film shown in cinema's nowadays. It's an animated musical romance film roughly based off the Ramayana and interlaced is a small fragment life story of the director, Nina Paley. Stylistically its a hod~podge of 3 styles; 2d flash, 2d drawn on cintiq, and cutout animation. In some ways feels a bit like a Ralph Bakshi's film minus the vulgarity.

The 20's, 30's blues music used in this film was sung by the radio star ~ Annette Hanshaw (1901 ~ 1985)
