First 2 hours of the drawing DVD.

So I got to see the first cut of the first two hours of the drawing DVD that I'm producing. We shot it in High Def and I'm really happy with the quality of the image on the screen, you can really see every charcoal stroke, its so clear. I thought I would post some shots. The DVD should be available this November.


In the studio, I didn't realize that I had all of my unfinished Self Portraits behind me.

Really wanted to get a model with a lot of experience on his face.



I really wanted to visually show the touch of charcoal on the surface that I use. The clarity of the DVD really helps to illustrate this.

Thanks everyone for the awesome comments. Especially on this project, which still has a long way to go.
Jeremy, Great question. i decided to go with HD so that the clarity would be great even if it is downconverted and when standard DVDs are like Beta/VHS tapes, the quality will be there well into the future. I'm thinking of making it available on Laserdisk. LOL My brother bought one of those back in the day. HAHA
Nuno, I hope that you are taking good care of my easel, I really miss it. :(

Hi David,

Any news on when the dvd will be released?

David Kassan said...

Thanks guys, the trailer should be out in a week or so, and the movie should be available either February or March right now. Trying to get everything right instead of rushing it. Sorry for the delay.
