VidFest Presentation

  • 78
    This is a loosely chronological survey of my work from my teenage fanzine artwork to screenshots of The Matrix Online, for which I wrote story continuity over the first few years of its existence. SF illustration, movie storyboards, advertising art and plenty of Concrete and other comics work included. It was part of my talk with Mark Verheiden, then a Battlestar Galactica writer/producer, to Vidfest 2007 in Vancouver BC.

Paul,
I'm an islander, builder, father of Aaron's friend, a big believer in Aaron D'Errico (and his brother Adam)! This story brought tears of sweetness, if anyone deserves this it's Aaron. If anyone can attract this situation from the universe it's Aaron. Thank you for this MARVELOUS story. Mark Hetrick

Great story. I've always heard Stan Lee was a good guy, and I guess those stories were true. But you should have taken a picture of Catwoman!

Good seeing you again, Paul. Thanks for the kind words about my work, you're very gracious.

And Aaron's enthusiasm is certainly infectious. I hope the rest of the show was good for you guys.

Here's that blog I was talking about:

My kids are asking "what mom? what mom?!" as I hoot and howl at this story. Good to be a fly on that wall, thanks

I don't know the graphic novel world so much but I do know Aaron. Not only does Aaron give himself completely to everything he does, he gives so much that other people around him benefit from his giving. He's the ultimate artist--a singer, a writer, a graphic artist--all that and he does A GREAT impression of Ali! Yah! Congrats Aaron. Honestly. You should see it sometime. Amazing.

It's a true blessing to know you.

I've been reading your other blog for a while now and thguoh this one updates a bit fast for my liking it's always a pleasure to see what you think on subjects. I'm a long time fan, I loved those single panel cartoons you had in Dragon Magazine, and althguoh I'm not quite as enamored with Nodwick, I really do love Full Frontal. Anyways I've been meaning to comment for a while now, I actually read the hunger games because I saw it mentioned on your other blog, and I figured anything good enough for Aaron Williams and Donald Southerland might be worth checking out (althguoh full disclosure: you might not have had first billing on that list in my head). Anyways I feel your comments are right on the money here. In what other bit of fiction is the hero (male or female) a cold blooded killer? Was the author of the second article hoping for Katniss to stalk and kill the other kids? She kills four people in that first book, and unlike most action heroes in other movies, she is haunted by her actions. Everyone that entered the hunger games is haunted by them. One of the things that made me absolutely love the books was the refreshing narrative. Katniss doesn't need Peeta to win the games, he helps for sure, but really he's a hindrance more then anything. Katniss doesn't need Gale to survive in the woods around district 12. She likes the companionship and the extra set of eyes, but she doesn't need Gale to define her character unlike every other princess like character in other stories. Another interesting twist is that both boys fall in love with her and not the other way around. Katniss doesn't really start having feelings for either until after they reveal their love for her.Anyways, love your blog, Keep up the good work.

, the more any number of pepole do one particular thing numerous times, the more it becomes less unique. That's also how evolution happens, but what I would not like to see is every firm pitching You need a Web application to companies. We already sell customers too much of what they don't need. Let's give them something that will work, and will work because of some simple changes (through this window of design). Through experience, sometimes it's the simplest of things that lead to the best results. Strong and valid points all around. Very good talk.
