It's been a long time since I've posted here (since my last short went online, in fact...) but I thought you all should know I made a new short, Brazey, and you can watch it now:



Additionally, there's a Brazey Facebook, that is updated daily: facebook.com/itsbrazey

I also updated all my links below, if you want to keep up with my work, that's where to go, as I probably won't make new deviations. Thank you!

I got Vimeo Staff Pick today, so now Transmission has a fancy new icon!

Hey all 4 of you still checking this out. I'm back from my stay in Vermont. I had an awesome time with some awesome people and I have no regrets outside of bringing a tent that leaked on me my first night there. Totally re-inspired my view of the art world and the world in general.

I got a ton of work done while I was there so I'm going to have a semi-steady stream of work being posted here, but it'll be more regular posted on my Tumblr (link below).

Other than that, I have a couple projects in the works, none of which to be spoken about yet. And Transmission has been accepted into yet another festival, this time in Brooklyn, which will lead into a hopeful online premiere sometime next month.

Hey everyone, this is my last post before I head up to Vermont for the month for Ghostscout Training Camp. I'm not bringing my computer with me, and for good reason, because I won't have internet or power deep in the woods for those 30 days.

I'm gonna be spending the month drawing, illustrating, building, camping, having fun, and most of all getting a much needed break from the technological world. Though, I did buy a new shortwave radio for some Transmission LARP…

I have a few specific projects in mind that I intend to work on this month, and I'm even bringing a couple books for research with me to help out. It's my hope that I'll be able to use this undistracted time to finally free up my mind and get the ideas I want onto the page.

And with that, I just want to say thanks for checking this blog out if you do. And if you have any questions or want to send me cool links while I'm gone, feel free to message me here or wherever and I'll get back to you when I can.

See you in September! ;; )


PS, you can now LIKE Transmission on Facebook: www.facebook.com/transmissionj…

That'll be the place to look when I eventually put the film publicly online this Fall.

Hey anyone that still looks at this or uses DeviantArt. Just thought I'd put an update here to let you know of a couple things:

1, Transmission has been reasonably successful on the festival circuit this past spring, I even made it to the semi-finals of the Student Academy Awards! But the big news coming up is that the film will be playing at San Diego Comic-Con next week on the 18th and I'll even have a Q&A after the film screens! The event page for that is here: comiccon2013.sched.org/event/4…

The film will also be screening at Dragon*Con this year, though due to prior commitments in August, I won't be around for that. However, Chris Roberts (Orca Life), who did the music for the film, will be in attendance. Which leads me to...

2, not that I post here often anymore, but the reason I wont be around in August is because I got accepted to Ghostcamp for the entire month. I'll be living up in the woods of Vermont with Ghostshrimp ghostshrimp.net/newHOME.html (he storyboarded on Flapjack and did the backgrounds for Adventure Time) and a bunch of other cool artists and we'll be drawing and building and camping and it'll hopefully be a super fun and amazing experience.

So, 30 days without internet, i'm curious how all of my inboxes will look after that.

See ya!

Not sure if anyone still looks at this but here's an update anyways:

Looks like this next month is going to be very busy for Transmission!

This weekend the film will be screening at The Little Rock Film Festival's Little Rock Horror Picture Show.  The film will be screening as part of their International Shorts 1 block, which screens twice: First at 10:15 AM at the Argenta Community Theater and again later that day at 1PM at The Joint.

In addition the film will be screening in Jacksonville, Florida at the Citrus Cel Animation Film Festival and I'll also have a piece there at their Art of Storytelling exhibition, which shows the character design process of the film over the course of two years. That's all from April 4th to the 6th.

Next up, I've been accepted into the Ivy Film Festival, which runs at Brown University from April 8th to the 14th. At this moment I don't know what day the film will be screening so I'll have more on that later (the Transmission film page will always have up to date info).

I'll be screening at the Animation Hall of Fame's Savannah International Film Festival in Savannah, Georgia. The festival is just one day, April 13th, and my film will be screening as the opener of Animation Block #4 at 2PM.

And as of today Transmission will be screening at the A Night of Horror International Film Festival in Sydney, Australia! That runs from April 11 - 21st; making it the only non-USA stop in the month so far, and making April out to be a very busy month. That's a festival a week!

I'm still waiting on confirmations from a bunch of other festivals, so stay tuned for more info. As of right now, I don't know which of these I'll be able to attend, if at all, but if I can I'll surely let you know!

My thesis film, Transmission, is done.

The project that's been keeping me from doing any other work is finally finished, barring some extra promotional stuff I still need to make.

You can read more about it, as well as see a gif from the film on my blog: jdweiss.blogspot.com/2012/04/t… or tumblr: jdweiss.tumblr.com/post/209377… .

In the coming months I should be able to post regularly again.

I'll be at New York ComicCon this Thursday-Sunday (i dont know exactly what days and when, but I got a 4 day pass and i'm most def probably going at least Thursday). I'll be that guy, with the face, walking around being awkward. Find me, we'll chat it up and trade business cards or something...

Also, I highly suggest checking my Tumblr, jdweiss.tumblr.com/ , because I put up a bunch of doodles and crap near daily that I wont post here or my blog.

Also also, really really working hard on thesis while have tons of other crap to do. No fun.

It's my birthday today. I hate kids. And I find myself buying old thing. Am I old?? D:


Started working on my thesis animatic. Otherwise, not much else going on. Didn't get to paint as much this summer as I'd of liked. But I still have soooooo many canvases D:

I'm aware of my uhh.... lack of posts this summer. I have done some things. Some things I don't feel a desire to post, some things I can't post yet, and then somethings just plain haven't been drawn yet.

Before the summer I obtained around 10 canvases with the intention of doing something with them, but I can't say I've used many of them... and then I obtained 10 more... so i've got like 18 or so just waiting to be painted, but quite honestly I hate trying to work in my house, I need my own space damnit. Aside from that I've just been doing thesis work, which I have no intention of putting online until it's done, and even then it will depend on festival rules if I can post the film/etc online.

But as I said, there are things I'd like to get done, especially before summer's end. But August will certainly be taken up by trying to get an animatic of my film done. Fun times...

Glad I can finally post this (not my upload), the music video for Weird Al's "Another Tattoo" which I worked on in the fall while at Augenblick Studios: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xLKGO…

I only did two shots, the zoom in on Ronald Reagan and the zoom in on the laser removal; which, while they go by in split seconds actually took a whole work day because theyre so detailed and I had to work so zoomed in. But, working on this was a weird dream fulfillment for my inner child, as I was a big Weird Al fan in my single digit years. And in a way, I enjoyed working on those two shots more than I did working on Ugly Americans... Hope you enjoy it! ;)

I forgot to post this here, but my third year final film from SVA this year is now online, Vimeo vimeo.com/25050599 or YouTube www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5n_IY… , pick your poison. It's a 1.5 minute short about a neglectful hospital staff. Watch it and show people, I'd love to hear some interpretations.

And for those interested in the process, my animatic for the film is on Vimeo as well: vimeo.com/23473410

I've been meaning to actually post new work, but I've gotten so sidetracked with my job and sleeping in way too late, and spending most of my waking hours either at work, watching movies, or playing Half-Life. But there's stuff I really want to get drawn, both for hear and for my thesis, so hopefully I'll get back in the groove of things once summer hours kick in.
