Gravity Finale - The Movie

So back when Weirdmageddon 3 had just aired and I was still kinda figuring out what to do with myself after the end of Gravity Falls, I decided to put together a little personal project and edit together the last four episodes of the show into one big Gravity Falls movie. Dipper and Mabel vs. The Future, Weirdmageddon Part 1, Escape From Reality, and Take Back the Falls.

I basically spliced together the episodes by cutting out all of the unnecessary fades to back that would otherwise interrupt the flow, and doing some audio crossfade work to make sure the cuts weren’t jarring. What I created is (hopefully) seamless transitions between episodes that just look like normal angle cuts. To do this I had to sacrifice like one or two jokes (ex. “Oh no there’s Bill!! That’s what you guys were thinking right?”) but the payoff is something that’s actually really neat to watch.

To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, click here to see a preview of the concept! This preview consists of the very end of Dipper and Mabel vs the Future transitioning into the very beginning of Weirdmageddon Part 1

I even then went so far as to edit the aspect ratio of the episodes to give it a more cinematic, film-like feeling.

^^^ Like that

The end result is 1 hour and 46 minutes of Gravity Falls goodness that I titled “Gravity Finale”.

And I never ever did anything with it, like, I think I told maybe one or two people about it.

But today I watched it and I was like “wow people would probably be interested in this, right????”

So, here I am. Giving you guys your very own link to watch Gravity Finale! Let me know what you guys think if you check it out, I’d love to hear how I did in editing a movie-like Gravity Falls experience ^^

Its inevitable, high school is gonna end, we are gonna move to different towns. We aren’t going to see these people everyday anymore, we have six months left together. Six more months of lunches 5 days a week at the same table in the same room in the same school. About 150, give or take a few, days until we graduate and leave this school forever. 4 years of our lives is done. And some people might think that this is a dark depressing thought, that in six months we will leave our best friends behind and move on to another part of our life story. But I think there is a difference between me and someone who thinks this is dark and depressing. You, who thinks this is a dark thought who doesn’t want to hear it, you are probably scared, terrified for the inevitable future that awaits you. And thats perfectly fine, be scared to leave your best friends, that fear is going to drive you to make the most out of these last six months together. Its going to make you want to go out and go to games, dress crazily for spirit weeks, not give a crap about what other people in the school think because you are enjoying yourself for the last time with these people. The difference is I am okay with me and my friends splitting up. I have seven best friends and we hang out all the time. I know that these people are going to be the ones I can count on, these people are going to be with me for the rest of my life, most likely the ones I want to have in my wedding. There is going to be distance put in between us and it will be hard to talk. Seven different people, seven different schedules, seven different towns, finding the time for everyone to talk will be so hard but I’m not worried. These are the people that I know I can count on, that will call me out when I’m lying and will help me through a bad day. I know that we might be able to talk everyday, and I think I’m okay with that because I know that these are the types of people that I don’t need to talk to everyday because  I know that they will always be there for me. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to try to talk to them, believe me I am, but it means that I will be okay if there comes a point where everyone is too busy to talk everyday. Now with all this being said, and how I am not scared, that doesn’t mean I won’t take advantage of these six months, I will. I will enjoy every moment that we spend together, every lunch, every dinner at my house, every song played on my guitar in my room, every old movie watched together, every car ride blasting music. I’m going to love every minute of it, but I know that I will be okay when it comes to the point where all of that is just a memory. I will be okay when we all  leave, yes I will be heartbroken but I know that we will always find our ways back to each other.
I think more seniors need to understand this. People think when high school is over they end a book, they think of there life as a book series, but its not, its one long novel. High school is just a chapter in it, and just because the chapter is over doesn’t mean the main characters cease to exist. Yes new characters come into the story, but the main ones will always be there, maybe not like they were before, and maybe not in the next chapter, but they will come back into the story. It might be years down the line, but the people who are supposed to be in your life, have a way of coming back. These are your best friends, the people you meet in high school and if your lucky they will be there for the rest of your life.

Maybe love isn’t supposed to last. Maybe it’s just supposed to exist for brief a moment so that we realize everything in this life is transitory. What you have now, you may not have tomorrow; treasure it, be with it. All too often the present is never as valued as much the past or the future.

Toronto has a lot of problems with the majority of transit projects never getting done. When David Miller was in office, he proposed Transit City which was a future transit system with LRTs running across the city by ~2020, but when Rob Ford took office, he cancelled all except for three projects, which are still not finished 'til this day due to delays and lack of funding.


Life update

Wow Kai it’s been like 2 days, calm down.

So anyway my health is still pretty much shit af and I haven’t really had the chance to destress during my 2 day absence. 

Today I was with the doctor, getting blood tests and shit (hopefully my iron levels will be decent). 

I ended up getting a referral to a professional for my anxiety and depression, while I’m actually very unsure about it - I took a second thought at how this opportunity can also help me with my future endevours (Transitioning + coming out to my family). I’m still pretty anxious, I’ve been bullied so bad in my past that I barely speak or interact with people in reality. Anxiety attacks are becoming frequent and my confidence dropping lower than the lowest. So despite all my resistance and excuses, my family has pushed me to see the professional. 

The doctor has also mentioned that I should give my hand some rest (my drawing hand). Between work and art, I’ve manage to ‘over use’ it. It’s swollen and a bit painful from time to time. I really hope it doesn’t evolve into arthritis.

On a lighter note, I might be adopting another Kitten. My Aunty’s cat had a litter of 5 beautiful smol beans. When they’re ready to get adopted, I’m hoping to snag one and call it Solar or Saturn!

Anyway , that’s pretty much what I wanted to say.
A lot of stuff behind my health but I can’t be bothered to type it out!
So, I’m semi-back! (Did I even really leave? no? Addicted, yes).

How’s it going, did I miss anything dramatic whilst I wasn’t on tumblr as much?
