Sample text

32 Still from animation created with Line Research software. JK: What kinds of projects are you currently working on? BS: I’ve been doing a lot of computer programming. I have these two iPhone apps that I’ve been bouncing back and forth between, and I have some animation software called Inchworm Animation that I’ve written for the Nintendo DS. I started working on it as a hobby about five years ago. We were off A Scanner Darkly, and I always had an interest in writing a game for a handheld gaming system.

When I was 23, I must have seen Slacker 10 times. JK: What appealed to you about that movie? BS: I think it just presented a picture of life that was so different than the one that I had just spent in college, locked up in a computer lab. I wanted to “live” in that movie and be that kind of person. I think that movie had a big influence on my moving to Austin; I wanted to move to Austin and be a slacker. Waking Life is a similar movie to Slacker in that it’s a big thrill to have been a part of that.

JK: It sounds like you’ve done a fair amount of software engineering. Do you have a background in programming? BS: Yes, I’ve been doing programming since I was a little kid. It’s played a part in all the filmmaking I’ve done as well. With most of the animated films I’ve made, I’ve started out wanting to show off a piece of software. It’s very tied together for me; my programming is always directed towards producing some kind of artwork. JK: How did you come up with the idea to develop your Rotopaint software?
