Norwegian book about comic history out now - with hey Cerebus at the top of the cover:) (Also on the cover some excellent Norwegian and euro comics you might not have heard of.)

What Free Breaking!

Here's the original clip
John Chen who did the amazing lighting of the scene and the rendering and color correction in the original clip assures me the render I did is correct - it's just a matter of color correcting the render. Pretty amazing what color correction can do - and enjoying learning as much as possible about it. Luckily that is like one of the last steps:)

4chan thread discussion about the video

Color Correction by Sean Robinson of Cerebus image - many of these same processes are used in the Cerebus film (and will be used more in it's the final stages).
(Many of the tools in fact have the same name as we use mostly After Effects. Photoshop is for still images and After Effects is for footage. Both products are by the same company "Adobe")

Sean Kleefeld looks at "The Creator's Bill of Rights"
From the article: After a dispute with Diamond Distributors, Dave Sim tried pulling together other comic creators to try establish some rules designed "to protect their rights as creators and publishers and oppose exploitation by corporate work for hire practices and the power of distributors to dictate the means of distribution."

Interview with Brian Hibbs, founder of legendary comicbook store "Comix Experience" - mentions "Cerebus" as a favorite comic
Brian Hibbs: "I've always been most attracted to comics with a clear and distinct authorial voice. It's all about the creators communicating their passion through the rhythms of comics"

Robert Goodin comics artist who also worked on animated shows such as Duckman sites Cerebus influence
"As I entered college as an illustration major at Cal State Long Beach, I was reading very few comics. One of them was Cerebus, a bit of a gateway drug out of the superhero tunnel vision."

Cerebus influence on "Generation X"
"He uses all the little tricks that Dave Sim and Tom Orzechowski taught the world, with words bouncing all over balloons as they'd be spoken"
