Devoid of Yesterday is an arts based collective specializing in the creation of personal short film projects consisting of friends Rob Chiu, Chris James Hewitt, and Ben Lukas Boysen. Their storytelling is superb and admirable considering they are removed from the world of commercialism of motion design, and focus on the art form of creating dark twisted narratives with flickers of hope that reflect the human nature of the artist.

Well, the film is finished and now i can go back to having a life. If you want to comment on it, click here. This is part of a John Woo mySpace film contest, voting begins on Monday, so I'll post a link later next week to the voting page. It's too bad I had to cut it down to 2:30 but after the film contest I'll post an extended/high-res directors cut...

Thanks for the heads up B-Chan! If you're in Atlanta September 21st - 23rd be sure to attend Anime Weekend - The Emeralds, Peelander-Z, and The Captains will be playing, along with many more great Japanese bands. Plus, I ran into Japan Files, a great site to find new Japanese music.

Well, I just finished polishing up the last scene. We shot on Sunday and it's taken up to right now to finish all the editing, special effects, color correction, and adding all the sound. On Tuesday we're shooting parts 1-3, which is the back story to the end scene gun battle in scene #4. I'll send out a link next Friday when it's all wraped up!!

I apologize for not posting anything recently, but I have a very good excuse. This past Sunday I directed and shot a short action film at The Drunken Unicorn. The production consisted of 12 extras and 2 main characters, plus 20 Shotguns, Pistols, and Uzis.
Now comes adding the special effects, editing, composing the soundtrack, color correction, sfx, etc. The film has to be done in two weeks (a part of a John Woo film contest). I'll post a link when it's complete... otherwise I'll be missing in action and sleepless until it's done.
