Tag You’re It! …ah… Huh?



The picture is from artwork used in my documentary titled Portland Comics. I directed and co-edited it. My show concerns the amazing comic community/scene in Portland Oregon. I interviewed folks from Dark Horse Comics, Top Shelf Productions, and Mercury Studios, along with several individual creators and local characters. With this doc, I was attempting to get at what makes Portland such an epicenter for comic books and comic culture.

It was competed in 2005 and was shown at the Longbaugh Film Fest and the 2005 Stumptown Comics Fest. The few folks who saw it seemed to like it well enough. I never submitted it to any other film festival. Hmmm maybe I should do that.

The two characters represent the diversity of Portland; an urban Asian guy and a cool riot grrl show their disappointment over the quality of mainstream comics. With a name like “Hero Guy” it has to be good. Right?

Also, I’ve been considering starting a blog about the Portland Comics Scene someday… Selba has unknowingly forced all kinds of things for me think about.

Oh and ah...

So what do I do? Respond first and then Wormer has to post his desktop? Because I just did.

Swinebread said...

Nope you post your desktop and tag someone else.
I'm tagging both you; most folks tag 5 to 6 people at once. But I just did you and Dean Wormer ‘cause I know you’ll see the tag I announced.

So just choose bloggers you know will see the message your site.

What a cute desktop screen you got, nevertheles, it actually got meanings in it which makes interesting after reading your explanation about it.

Thanks for doing the tag :)

And oh... yes, it really shows that you are a new blogger! It's fun doing a tag, right? hahaha

I like it better if it's a competition and I won it. In fact everything in life is better if it's a competition that I just won.

Swinebread said...

Hmmmm that sounds like extra fun hmmmm

Dean Wormer said...

Are there tag-backs?

Swinebread said...

No! You gotta tag someone else. You could get me later if someone tags you down the road.

Blame Selba or the person who tagged her, or the person who taggad the person who tagged Selba or... oh forget it!

Having seen the film, I can say it's Super Cool! In fact, it needs to see the light of day more often.

Perhaps an inpromtu film festival in someone hourse/backyard might do the trick. We'll make awards for films with the most family members present!

But seriously, do submit it. Maybe to some Cons that are related...
