Congratulations On Your Impending Geography

Ten years ago, right after working at Kinko’s, and right before I met my wife, I was fortunate enough to travel to Europe with Mara’akate. I made a movie about it. This is it.

We were a band, so we did all sorts of silly things. On the DVD release of the above film, we included the videos below just because we could.

Before any of the above could happen though, we had to record one last record, and this was made:

Lego X-Wing Time Lapse

My 7-year-old son and I put together the LEGO X-Wing, and made a time-lapse with my GoPro Hero 2. The music is “Right Left Right” from the album “Wildfire” by Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun, a great band from Atlanta. I’ve been fortunate enough to see them a few times, and they were gracious enough to let us use their song. Like them on Facebook at facebook.com/todaythemoon.

This was a really great project. Looking back I wish I would have paid better attention to my camera placement, but that this project was meant to be a learning experience. It was quick and also my first experience using Adobe Premiere in quite a long time.

Thanks again to Today the Moon Tomorrow the Sun for use of the song – it fit exactly and goes along with the video quite nicely.

Bridge – A fun short not from Pixar.

This is seriously great – an awesome short, I am sure that Ting Tey, who specifically had to mention on this video’s vimeo page that he does NOT work for Pixar, will soon find himself an employee there, if he so chooses.

This one has the unique pleasure of being one of the first shorts I enjoyed with the Vimeo app on my AppleTV.

Zero – A Vimeo Short

I watched this recently with my son, and I have to say, it is quite impressive. Zero, while containing a dark palette, is a well produced short.

I have to say it is impressive, I love the look, and I love the piece, but the ending left me feeling a little strange. Of course, that is probably the point.
