Noodling dust storms and dust effects:
And what do you see being revealed in the dust devil? I want to add a figure, or a horse, or something emerging out of it, or in front of it. I don't want to ruin some of the delicate effects, so this is a constant hurdle for me. I let these go where they want to go, but when I attempt to add something to it, well, it has a tendency to go south. Is it done, should I go farther? And, regarding the difficulty in letting go in a piece of art or of a book, Brian Allison sent me this quote:
"Our films don't get finished, they just get released."
Turns out, the quote is from the response to a fan letter sent to the director Pete Docter (yes, spelled like Doctor but with an e-r ending). Here is the letter he sent back to the fan:
"That film wasn't released, it escaped!"
