I came to Austin to get into the indie video and film community. I'd like to learn from others in the field and collaborate on projects.
Skills, knowledge, friendships with folks who share an interest in the visual arts, and partnerships for projects.
Retired Air Force. Degrees in Electrical Engineering, East Asian Studies and Homeland Security and Defense. Have been making short movies since I was 12, from Super 8 film through analog video to DV.
Currently under development: www.b8atechnology.com. I also have a profile on Vimeo (search "Cliff Gyves").
I am an amateur filmmaker. I enjoy all aspects of filmmaking, from scripting, directing, shooting and editing. For compositing, I use After Effects and I'm digging ever more into 3D modeling and rendering for VFX.
Good group of folks. A wide variety of experience on software. It should prove to be a good learning environment.
