Happy Holidays!

Okay, so I know these are X-mas videos, and I'm Jewish, and like, whatever, but I'm so incredibly charmed by these adorable, magical shorts, and needed to share.  Also...Christmas is great.  Like, yeah.

The Prospects finally available on DVD!


So, my brother David's first feature film, The Prospects, which cycled through festivals East and West, and premiered on IFC's Sundance Channel, is now finally available to purchase--through my brother!!!



Two friends, Charlie and Ted, plot to rob an old man of his baseball card collection in order to fund their future recording studio. However, Charlie falls for the old man’s Jamaican nurse, throwing a wrench in their plans, and their friendship.
 
Amazing and outrageous performances by the silent stud, Charlie (Hewson), his quirky friend, Ted (Eric Edelstein), the gorgeous Jamaican maid, Cherise (Simone Moore), and many more beautiful and not-so-stunningly beautiful characters! Written and directed by my brilliant, funny-as-hell brother, David Brundige.


Oh, and did I forget to mention the music? Brilliant, quirky-as-shit, indie, sincere songs by The Prospects' own Charlie Hewson.  If you're tired of Jens Lekman and looking for someone new, I wholly recommend Charlie.

This is a fun, and heart-felt romp your whole family can enjoy. Well, maybe not the little kids :) But definitely the dog.

Please, please, please, help my brother out while doing yourself a favor, and buy one of his beautiful, professional DVDs, and enjoy the film, again, and again.

If you're in college and you're like, "Ugh, $20! Too much." Consider splitting the cost with your roommate, and screening the baby whilst enjoy a few + beers together. You are guaranteed to become best bros.

Sincerely,
Emily

Welcome to the Amelie Show

For my Cinematography for Animation class with Bill Perkins, we were supposed to take a scene from a movie, and re-do it in our style.  So I took the beginning to Amelie, and did a little riff on it.  Miniature drawings as usual, these days.

"It's Dark in Here"

My first assignment for Bill Perkins' Cinematography for Animation class.  Love his class!  We were supposed to illustrate a story in just a few shots based on a phrase.  Here's my take on a boy stuck in a well:




 As always, room for improvement :)

Mmm...

Found this drawing crumpled up in my backpack.

Sketches of Friends/Film Studies

In my world, everyone looks very old.

Old Fangs studies.  I love the art direction and shot composition in that short, so did thumbnail studies.

Amelie studies.

Comedy Bang Bang plays "Pubertina"!

Comedy Bang Bang, one of my favorite podcasts, played the Pubertina song!  I was totally tickled to hear Scott Aukerman, Paul Rust, Jimmy Pardo, and Rob Delaney laugh, criticize, and just generally "BRO-OUT" on my song.  They over-think my super anglo last name when trying to pronounce it, which always cracks me up.  Also, they basically give a good review of my song, which is very rare on this podcast.  It's super fun (and fun-ny) to hear what they have to say.  "Pubertina" comes in at 59:19.  Give it a listen.  Please.  Here.



Tune into the podcast every week!  It's where I get my laughs.

Boobz

 

Exercise


My circuit-training instructor, Allie, is peppy and awesome.  She makes me laugh just by having so much energy.  In turn, I think she is amused by my lack of energy.

"Que Sera Sera"



A spontaneous cover of "Que Sera Sera," written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, originally introduced to the world by Doris Day in The Man Who Knew Too Much. My friend Meejin Hong requested that I sing it. What will be, will be.

Inspiration

I've been seeing a lot of inspiring stuff on the internet lately, so I thought I'd share.

Here's a film by one of my favorite independent comic artists, Lilli Carre:



Loved this fun series by Immanuel Wagner:



Have been really digging the films Pat McHale (of Flapjack, Adventure Time) has been posting.  Especially these two:





These shorts by studio Treat, which a friend's brother worked on (London-based):





A charming little film by Pat Harpin (of CalArts) with adorable voice-acting:

New Frames...


I love 'em! This picture doesn't address my new HAIRCUT, but that's besides the point. The point is: these glorious elderly frames, and how much I adore them!

Old Focals, Pasadena--baby!!!

A Parallel

Tyrus Wong
(1910-Present)


Franz Marc
(1880-1916)


Marc's goal was to envision the world through animals' eyes, and Wong created these stark, passionate impressions of nature as design suggestions for Walt Disney's Bambi.
