This is a casting call for a paid role. Check below the “Read More” line for the actual casting call. Please help us spread the word!

Watching our own pilot, something became apparent. While our show has POC actors, all were of lighter complexion, and we hadn’t created space for actors with darker skin tones. That meant we weren’t creating a show that our whole audience could see themselves in. That didn’t sit right.

Addie is a new role that we’ve added to the show. They’re a genderqueer POC (of darker complexion). At the start of the show, Addie and Su work together. Su moves on, but their lives intersect every once in a while.

Addie has a scene early on where they’re still presenting as a man, but in subsequent scenes are living out as a genderqueer / non-binary femme. Their role in the first season is limited, but their story stretches into future seasons.

Our casting call is below the “Read More” line. Please help us spread the word! This is an important opportunity for QTPOC actors!

You reminded me to check for a new Still Untitled :D

Yay! I helped!

I went to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  It was better than I had thought it would be judging by the trailers.  I was swayed by Adam Savage talking it up on his podcast.

The older woman who sat next to me was the best though.  Before the movie started she offered me apple slices from a zipplock bag.  During the movie her tiny comments were perfect.  At the end she leaned other and asked if I liked it.  I said yes and she said she couldn’t wait for the next one.  She reminded me of some of my tías.

WOW, that is amazing.  not only tetris skills down to a wicked detail, but the beauty of that old technology becoming art.  i imagine it was quite the din and warm room though hah!

I’ve seen this a few times but never noticed that light from the monitors makes a sunset gradient on the opposite wall. I can’t find a picture that shows it though.

I’ve lost my source of income, and I need some help until I can figure out something else. I’m disabled, mentally ill, and basically alone. My needs are few, but without income, I’m afraid I won’t be able to meet them.

Donate to nymphbeast@gmail.com on Paypal if you can afford to. Please make a note that it’s for lichgem, since it’s not my Paypal. 

If you can’t afford to help, please signal boost. Thank you.

The Boxtrolls (2014) | Behind the Scenes

via Animation Magazine:

  • 1 week; the average amount of time for an animator to complete 3.7 seconds of footage
  • 3.5 inches, the cuff-to-cuff measurement of baby Eggs’ sweater (created on an embroidery machine to produce irregular lines, like a hand-knitted garment). His little socks are only ⅝” long
  • 4 scenes per week was the goal for each animator
  • 14 different fabrics were used in Lord Portley-Rind’s white hat
  • 24 kinds of weeds were created for backgrounds by the greens department
  • 55 different sculpts of prop cheeses were made; different scale sizes were needed for wide, medium and close shots

The 7th image… oh man..how do they animate water so that the wave lights animate alongside the character animation?? Is that some 3D printed water right there that they switch out over and over??? A light projection thru glass? Dying to know how it works. Everything about how Laika makes movies is real actual magic

my surgery fundraiser

jobhaver:

hi, im tumblr user jobhaver aka rebeka refuse. im posting a surgery fundraiser on this website today for facial feminization surgeries. i want to be able to afford feminizing surgical procedures for my face because, as a trans woman, i experience extreme dysphoria about my face.

the way my face looks is my number one source of dysphoria and it interferes with my life often. for quite a long period of time i refused to leave the house at all because i didn’t want anyone to see my face. i get extremely upset often, often to the point of tears, when i see my face in mirrors or photographs. i get extremely anxious when people look at me, even sometimes people who are very close to me, because i dont want them seeing my face the way that i see it.

the primary reason i stopped working in the service industry and started doing ‘adult work’ was because i wasn’t making a living wage before and so it would have been impossible for me to afford the surgery i needed to treat my dysphoria and feel comfortable with how i looked and less anxious and self conscious about it.

i have been working in the adult industry for approximately a year now and have escalated my involvement into more and more risky forms of sex work multiple times, each time fueled by an experience of intense dysphoria and despair over being no closer to my goal of being able to afford surgery for myself. despite the fact i am trying to do just about every form of adult work i can think of and am capable of doing, and am now making a living wage, i still am no closer to my goal of saving for this surgery.

i really need help with this, because its theoretically an obtainable thing that can treat my dysphoria, and because it has been out of my reach for so long. the fact that despite so much effort to further my career in the adult industry i am still nowhere closer to getting these procedures has been extremely depressing. im not food unstable or homeless or anything like that anymore, but this is something that i need badly and have needed badly for years and can’t afford.

please donate a little bit if you can afford it and if not please signal boost this for me. thank you so much <3

Rule #1, always post the rules.
 Rule #2, answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, then write 11 new ones. Rule #3, tag 11 people then link them in the post. Rule #4, tell them you tagged them. Rule #5, tell the person that tagged you when you’ve answered the question.

1. What is your relationship with animals? How many pets have you had and what kind? 

I like animals.  I’ve had one dog(Ruffus) and three cats(Mist, Pia, Star) in order over the years.

2. Do you like jewelry or makeup? Do you wear them?

I used to wear earrings a lot but I stopped and one of the holes closed up.  I have some necklaces that I really love but hardly ever wear.  Make-up wise I wear foundation to hide my beard shadow and even out my skin tone.  My cheeks are like spotty red so a touch of foundation helps to even it out evens it out.  That’s mainly for work.  Outside of work I prefer to go barefaced.
3. Do you have any objects (clothes, jewelry, dishes etc) that you received second-hand from another person that you use frequently?

I have a pot from my sister but it’s kind of bigger and doesn’t get use too often.  I had a plate that was from her that I did use a lot but it broke a couple months ago.  Plastic cooking spoons and spatulas also from my sister.  I used to cook a lot when she, her kids and I lived together.
4. How do you think your home environment influenced your views on politics, religion, and/or yourself?

Pass
5. Do you like music? If so, is your favourite part singing it, hearing the instrumentals, playing or writing it yourself, or something else?

I do like music.  I guess I like singing along with fun songs.  I have no musical ability and I’m tone deaf, though.
6. What is the seasonal weather like where you live?

Right now, it’s mosty hot(high 90’s) with occasional rain showers.
7. Favourite beverage (besides water)? Do you have any memories associated with that beverage that make it your favourite?

At home, I almost always have some sweet tea in the fridge to drink.  It was just what my family drank all the time while I was growing up.  I tend to like it sweeter than most people.  At like a restaurant I take a root beer if they have it or Dr. Pepper.  Never Coca Cola or Pepsi.
8. What is your ideal living space? This can include house design and location as well as the emotional environment and who you would live with :)

I would want lots of space but also small rooms to retreat to.  So big living room/lounge area/dinning room/kitchen divided by folding dividers or sliding curtains.  I’m kind imagining like a converted warehouse.  I wouldn’t want to live alone.  I’d like it to be kind of a friends/couples or poly groups communal living group.  
9. What is you self care routine? Can be your normal routine that makes you feel good about yourself.

Normal self care: showering daily, brushing hair, taking hrt, eating on time, reading daily webcomics, watching latest Achievement Hunter videos, trying to write.
10. Is there anything you’re really picky/particular about?

Not that I can think of right now.
11. Do you collect anything, either accidentally or as a hobby?

Ramen noodle seasoning packets.  I usually make two at a time but only use one seasoning packet so I have a mug with extra packets that I sometimes use on like plain rice.
