I’ve been sort of quietly blogging over here now for almost a month, but keep reading how important social media can be to grow a blog community.  While I’m resistant to the self-promotional nature that comes with some of it, I do love other aspects–”branding” a Facebook page, editing my iPhonography, and getting inspired by the curations and creations of others.  So I’ve been trying to spruce up my social media act lately, and here below (and above) are my links, if you’d like to follow along.

FACEBOOK – I recently started and have been tweaking a page for this blog.  Great tips for custom tab pages can be found at Breanna Rose.  Here, I might share a link or two that I love doesn’t warrant a full blog post.

INSTAGRAM – A lot of food + location documentation in my everyday life.

PINTEREST – Just started categorizing and organizing my boards a little better.

BLOGLOVIN – As far as blog readers go, this one is pretty nice.

VIMEO – This channel for my short film Snow Jacket is where you can find the trailer, interviews, and other little promotional things we’ve made.

NUJI – Just joined Nuji at the urging of Kate, and still trying to get in the swing of it.  It’s like a cleaner, product-orientated Pinterest.

TWITTER – I’m torn about Twitter.  I have a personal account that is, and that I’d like to keep, separate from this blog.  I know it’s one of the best platforms to share and interacts, and I could start up a separate account, but I don’t know if I have it in me to manage all that.  I’d love to here any of your thoughts about how important it is (or isn’t) to you.

VINE - Anyone trying this?  Any thoughts?  I’m not sure exactly what it offers yet, so I’m trying to watch out for the creative pioneers to dazzle and convert me.




how to make fake snow and frost

While production designing Snow Jacket, I had the challenge of creating snow and frost for the crucial first few shots of the film–which was set in Brooklyn in the dead of winter, and shot in downtown Los Angeles.  The story is about a long-distance couple who, over the course of the film, start to fall apart under the pressure of their own baggage and external forces, and the weather is a key symbol for those external forces.

Because of our microbudget, profesional film snow wasn’t an option, but I put Google–and a lot of trial and error–to work.  The solutions I found were ultimately SO SIMPLE.







Just a very-Snow Jacket winter mood board for today.

We used this chilly album cover as a jumping point for the color story of Snow Jacket, keeping the reds in our production design sparse and muted.
