Name: David Pinckney
I’m a Software Engineer.
–Says the diploma–
But really, I’m a creator. Storytelling through comic books, video editing, and photography is my passion. Having been self-taught in all of these fields, I had to do a lot of the foot work myself to be proactive in the information I wanted (and still want) to learn.
My first trait I picked up was comic book writing. This is absolutely my favorite form of storytelling. I wanted to break into the industry, I wanted to do something big. In all honesty, I’m still trying to achieve just that, but looking back on where I started to where I am now, there has been a lot of growth. Not just in ability but in overall knowledge of the comic book field. An extreme amount of work went into getting where I am today. I’ve had several failures and a few successes, but it’s the few successes that made the failures worth doing.
Now, I’m the creator and writer of No West to Cross. A western comic about the first ever and only cowgirl to roam the wild west. On top of that I have written other comics like Time Samplers and others.
Comics are great! I love them! Probably a little too much, but I also love video editing. It’s a way of telling a story in a much different way than comic books. The content is already there, but I have the task a weaving the pieces together to make a coherent and flowing story. Again, like comic writing, I learned how to do video editing on my own. I used sources like Lynda.com and Izzy’s Final Cut Pro tutorial to learn what I know. It took an amazing amount of effort, but in the end it was totally worth it.
As for photography. Well. I accidentally liked photography. Not that I didn’t want to like photography, but I but a nice DSLR camera with the intent of doing a web show (one that I am still planning on doing). Before using it for video recording, I played around with just taking picture. After a while (like all of 35 seconds) I realized “This is freakin’ cool”. So I kept up with it. I, again, turned to Lynda.com to learn the basics of a DSLR and learned about composition and post-production.
Creating is something I love to do. It’s something that I will keep on doing. I hope you enjoy what you see on my site and if you’d like to get in contact with me about anything that I do please email me at: David@SequentialGeek.com
