This was a very ambitious entry with a production story of its own, though it just didn't land the way "Home" or "Wonder Wheel" did. You win some, you lose some! But I had a lot of fun with this one and still think it's pretty neat.
My brother Joe did the 3D renders from my poses as close as possible - I then had to go back and redraw the poses seamlessly over the 3D. It was a strange way to work, and I think the results are uncanny and somewhat in the realm of body horror. Joe also did the LA backdrop.
I love the simplicity of the buildings and the oversized palm trees. It was exactly the kind of abstraction I was hoping for, just a general mental area of what LA looks like.
Anyway, I might've been overplaying my hand with Big Moments towards the end of the series. I just had so many ideas swimming in my head and I'd get a rush every time I saw them to fruition. This was one of many that seemed possible, and it's nice to look back on that.
