well back to land of hot summers and indoor funs.I spent a while with family and visited my freinds which was great.I saw a great animation done by an old classmate from film school.Now i have set my work space and i am playing around.Drawing,reading,still struggeling with film ideas and i hope i don't go to that phase of not being able to decide on one.Taking lots of pictures.I am planing to meet the director whose performance i want to adapt in to some animation.I am also going to do some shooting in streets of tehran at night and along with these,tests and tests.
