The Moth
2023-05-06

I am working on a big video project using MidJourney imagery, a flicker film about nature and altered states. It is likely going to take a while (dozens of scenes ready to edit) but I wanted to share one work-in-progress because I thought it was a pretty cool example of what you can get out of a single prompt.

AI is simply a tool, and one you can combine with many other tools. This scene was made by masking out the moth in multiple images, sectioning it into wings, body, and background in Photoshop, then brought into After Effects to animate the flicker effect as well as the moth flying. It is not complete yet, but I plan to have multiple scenes to create a narrative (background music is just a temporary place-holder for what is to come, just a quick edit of me on piano and Terrence McKenna speaking).

One Year Later

Corgi Van Gogh

We were out shopping and my girl saw some wall art of a corgi with a Van Gogh look. She wanted it, but I said “Wait, let’s just use MidJourney and Photoshop to make one that looks like Willow instead!” (our little fluffy tri-color corgi pup). I rolled a few simple...

Animation Progress

Hey, been a bit quiet lately. I’m busy working on an animation project using MidJourney and After Effects, a music video for an incredibly talented electronic musician in Colorado, Souliseum... I am currently in the process of moving 1,000 miles away, so it’ll likely...
