at Cinencuentro again!

This time around pointing out some experiences while watching those films, which doesn’t necessarily reflect what I consider the best… keyword, necessary.

Sorry, only in Spanish.

check it out here.

Here’s the main idea post.

And yes, I made it passed the 48 films. I’m nearly on my film #70, I think.

Since it’s nearly December here, and it’s December already in several places. It’s time for a reminder because I haven’t heard from many of you, and I promised to remind everyone.

  • You’ve got all this month to watch films to complete your 48 film-count.
  • Your nomination list should be sent by January 7th 2010.
  • Nominations categories are the same as the Academy Awards, except;
    • no Best Foreign Film category.
    • no shorts (documentaries, animated or live-action)
    • no Documentary Features either.
  • Nominations are announced on January 10th 2010
  • Voting for a winner ends on January 28th 2010
  • Winners are announced January 31st 2010.

So grab and Academy Award nomination list, fill in the blanks except for the categories specified above, and send them my way. ;P

First, let me begin saying that I thought 2006 was a great year to watch films. Also, funny thing to point out — it was really, and I mean… REALLY tough to pick my Best Supporting Actress picks~

Many of my favorite films have a 2006 tag in them, so this list might seem a little bias, even though I really tried hard to not be. You might noticed how hard I tried not to be bias. LOL — check the Best Actress category~

I should be really working on these more often because there are 3 more left before I get to choose the ones from 2009~~~ This time around, I kind of feel like i didn’t get to watch many good films. It was really tough to find 3 animated films to include, and considered to just choose two instead, but I found 3 xD so I hope it’s not mostly filler~

Since I’ve been jealous that my friends Turtle and JK are taking some really good typography classes, I have told them they can review their classes and assignments with me… that way they learn, and I also get to learn. xD

Anyway, JK referred me to FontStruct, which I had visited once after they showed up on a Communication Arts issue. However, I was to shy to try it out — I mean, that introductory quick animation seems a bit pro. But in the end, JK told me I should check it out because it was interesting, and his teacher like it quite a bit.

So I ended up playing with it to create a pixel-based font. I started out with my KATAKANA alphabet, which has some very nice forms and some very hard  to do~~~ This pixel font also works for typing in Spanish, French and Swedish =D

Sorry, no Hiragana at the moment.

Plus, Photoshop doesn’t seem to recognize the Japanese input, and just uses the default font for Japanese characters. What’s up with that? Does anyone know?
