Inside Voices — A Weekend Musical
Carolyn was in this short movie, conceived and produced in 48 hours, executed in a single unbroken take (with mesmerizing camera motion). If you can spare about 8 minutes, I think you’ll enjoy what you see!

I’d love to do a shift at these gorgeous #neovictorian workstations, created in #Blender3D and rendered in the #Unity3D engine for a personal #steampunk project. #blender3dart #aesthetics

The Struggle to Save Ballet From Itself
A former dancer reckons with the rigors and ordeals of life in ballet. If ballet was all self-effacing torture, there would be no need to wrestle with it. But despite the inhumanity of its current training methods, Robb also makes it clear that it gave her so much. “At ballet, I had learned not only…
There’s Something Off About LED Bulbs
When I’m stressed, or I feel life is spinning out of control, I buy lights. I’m sure there’s something symbolic in that action. Over the years I’ve picked up a half dozen photography lights with umbrella reflectors, and as the cool-white spiral fluorescent bulbs fail — one every two years or so — I’ve been…
Why Tetris is the ‘perfect’ video game
Rather than wanting to make a film about Tetris the video game as such, Baird was fascinated by this human story that pushed the game into existence. “The original title of the film was actually Falling Blocs, just like the Eastern blocs that dissolved when the Soviet Union collapsed. I thought it was a really…
Thank you, frog and friends, for reminding us all what the Internet is supposed to be for.

My Polish grandmother used to bake these cookies, which my wife picked up at a Ukranian festival. They’re apparently called nut horns. Hadn’t tasted them for 30 years.
My grandmother shaped them a little differently, more like segments of a sphere… the name I must have given them in my childhood is just “powdered sugar crescent cookies.” She packed them in a tin with chocolate chip , oatmeal raisin, fork-impressed peanut butter, and maybe sugar cookies? I would have made a beeline for her…
Rhythm of the Dance (Irish dance, song, and music touring show)
My family thoroughly enjoyed this performance at Greensburg’s Palace.

Captain Gearhart found some stairwell problems on his latest #Unity3D tour of his #Blender3D #steampunk cruiser.
Still shot from a flyover video that's been taking about 3 minutes to render each frame. I'm rendering it in chunks over successive nights. #Blender3D #blender3dart #aesthetics #design #steampunk #neovictorian

Short-range #neovictorian excursion craft, now with glowing power orbs! Over the past year I’ve created so many themed assets (wall units, control panels, random #greebles) that fleshing out the interior only took a few spare evenings. #steampunk #blender3d #blender3dart #design #aesthetics
Progress over 11 years of Blender3D practice
Over the past few years I have created lots of assets, including control panels, furniture, and textures, for an ongoing neovictorian/steampunk personal project that began as bedtime stories that I told my kids from about 2008-2013. Around 2012, the story I was telling required a mid-range support craft larger than a shuttle, so I roughed…
