Grants Pass - Epilogue: The Journey Begins

clock May 21, 2010 11:48 by author Amber

Sometimes my muse pokes other people in the loop too and, frankly speaking, that tickles me something fierce. I've always felt that photography is a collaborative process between the photographer and the subject. There's even more collaboration that can happen when there are other creative types in involved. You know, like writers and editors. When Jennifer Brozek, an award winning editor, author, all around amazing person, and the creator of Grants Pass, saw my original piece, she loved it. And then she got this look on her face. If you've ever worked with an author, painter, filmmaker, or someone other creative individual, you know what looking I'm talking about. I get that look, who am I kidding? But Jennifer came back to me and said, "What about this idea? Could you produce something like that?"

What idea was that, you ask?

An accident pulls Rose into the path of Bobby Cross, the man who killed her. She's not ready to face him...but with the soul of an innocent man at stake, she may not have a choice.

Grants Pass - Epilogue

clock May 16, 2010 21:56 by author Amber

As a photographer who works with editors and authors, sometimes I find that we don't necessarily share the same vision for an image. That happens and it's not the end of the world when it does. Sometimes, I just nail it and a smile creeps over their face as they nod, taking it all in. Often, I'll shoot many more photos than needed and many of those won't see the light of day ever.

Yesterday, my muse hit me at while I was walking out the door, an idea about telling a portion of the story in a more non-traditional way; the comic book panel. Very specifically, using a number of photos I took for Grants Pass (Morrigan Books, Amazon). Some of these photos saw use in trailer and again here.

Here's the result of my muse grabbing me by the hair and saying, "Listen up!" It was inspired by the epilogue of the book, "Journal Entry" by Kaylee Allard.

There are a couple of other stories from the anthology that I want to give this treatment to include "An Unkindness of Ravens" by Stephanie Gunn and "Remembrance" by James M. Sullivan. Maybe one or two more beyond those.



Blackbird Orchestra and Bakelite 78 at the Jewelbox

Last Friday, Robert Rial's Bakelite 78, the Blackbird Orchestra, and Ockham's Razor played the Jewelbox Theater in Seattle. To my dismay, I had to leave before Ockham's Razor played due to my need to be up at an ungodly hour the next day.

The Sepiacord Benefit Show

Back in April--almost a month ago--I was at the SepiaChord benefit concert down at the CanCan in Seattle. Lighting was working against me, but some of the shots turned out quite nicely.

Photos from the Seattle Steampunk Film Festival

clock May 10, 2010 23:42 by author Amber

Raffle sales were one of many fundraising aspects to the Seattle Steampunk Film Festival.On May 8th, 2010, a large collection of steampunks descended on the Museum Of History And Industry (MOHAI) in Seattle, Washington, with the sole purpose of raising funds to help fix the Carrols Clock. On December 26th, 2009, vandals stole the clock's inner workings and brass pendulum. Initial estimates placed the repair work for the 97 year old clock at $10,000.

Ericka sent an e-mail to the Seattle Steamrats Google Group detailing the results of these efforts:[more]

I'm overwhelmed by the success of this Saturday's fund raisers, Steampunk University and the Seattle Steampunk Film Festival.  It all started on *this* discussion group with the first post about the clockwork theft back in late Dec.  And we all stepped up as a community to make this fund raiser happen.

I am so grateful to our big donors: Steamcon, Studio Foglio, Renovation SciFi Convention, and Steambaby.  But I'm also blown away at the number of smaller donations that poured out from so many!  We never imaged we'd have so many goodies for our silent auction  It really touched my heart to see how people just stepped up to chip in (and dress up for a party!)  And to all of the volunteers.  So many people helping out on so many levels.  And we did it!  We raised enough to restore the clock!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Oh, and the folks at MOHAI love you too!  The exact subject line of the email we got this morning was "THANK YOU!!!!! I heart Steampunk!"

from MOHAI's fund raising coordinator.  I think we've left a mark on the museum in more ways than one.  (They know carry Boneshaker in their gift shop.)

Here are more photos from the photobooth.
