And It Begins – Giant AND Digital
I saw this story on the Big Movie Zone yesterday. It's a major milestone for Outside In's plans for distribution on the giant screen. The costs for distributing Outside In on film will be huge. However, the costs for digital distribution are a tiny fraction of that. But right now, the options for digital distribution of Outside In on the giant screen are just a...
Getting the Word Out
Now that the viral action has died down to a few thousand hits a day (of course, more still in one day than the 10 months previous), I'm working hard on leveraging the exposure for the film. I got some PR/Marketing friends to help with a press release to send out to the giant screen and indie film industry. I want to thank David Horne,...
Astronomy Picture of the Day – the Power of Image
It's been a whirlwind since early yesterday a.m. - being selected, especially as a non-scientist for the NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day" is a huge honor and totally unexpected. It's also a hugely popular site (I had no idea how popular) -- the views of the clip in the last 36 hours are many times the viral hits from last week.And I've had very...
Daily Planet Clip Online!
The viral buzz on the new footage clip caught the interest of The Daily Planet on Discovery Channel Canada. Note 30 second pre-roll and then it runs from 4:30 until 5:10 or so. They also mention it at the top of the show (March 11th, Clip 1).http://watch.discoverychannel.ca/daily-planet/march-2011/daily-planet---march-09-2011/#clip432742...

Funny Story…
So, a funny story happened to me this week. Over the weekend, I realized it had been a year since I had checked up on people using my big bang image without permission. A high resolution version of the image that I used to have on the site got featured as Google's #1 result for "big bang" in the image search and since then it...
Outside In Buzzing the Electrons
It's been a good weekend for the film. First, some new work-in-progress footage was presented at the Tri*Star event on Saturday morning. It followed a great presentation from Mike Malaska, supporter of the film and newly minted Solar System Ambassador. The event was excellent and educational - got some good information for the big bang sequence I'm working on right now. Thanks to Tom English,...

Sears Applied Technologies Center on the campus of Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, NC.But don't just come for...
Digieffects – Supporter of the Day
We've talked about plug-ins and how important they are to creating Outside In. One specific area that is very important is creating the illusion of three dimensions with the still photographs used to create the film. Because I'm not using CGI 3D models of planets, moon, stars, etc. the normal ways of creating 3-D are not available. I have to rely on a whole recipe...
