Check out my friend’s new band Automatic Me!! Here is their official music video for their latest hit song “The Resistance.” I give these guys tons of credit. They formed just a few months ago and have already moved to Los Angeles, shot a music video, and are now on their way to signing a record deal soon! You can keep up with them on twitter @TheAutomaticMe & on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/automaticme
I have always admired time lapse videos! I think it is one of the coolest effects you can do and I really love watching them. I wanna start doing my own time lapse videos so I looked at random videos on youtube to kinda get an idea of what to do and I came across the video above! That video is incredible. It is very well put together with the editing and music! I plan on doing a lot of my own time lapse videos soon. I’m going to Vegas next month and I will definitely be doing one while I’m there as well as other photos! The way I used to do time lapse videos never looked right. I used to lock down my Panasonic DVX 100B video camera on a tripod, press record and let it run for a while and then take it into Final Cut and speed it up. That way kinda works but it definitely doesn’t work if you’re trying to do a sunrise/sunset or an extended period of time! With a DSLR it’s so much easier and it actually works! I’ll post up my own time lapse videos when they’re created!
I was walking around Fort Lauderdale beach today location scouting for the “Like Me” Music Video. I went into Beach Place to see if there would be any ideal locations to shoot in there and I see a crowd of people and hear loud techno music so of course I get curious and go check out what’s going on. I see this guy spray painting a canvas and lighting it on fire, putting out the fire and re-spraying it. It was pretty amazing to watch so I stood around even though my parking meter was running and I still needed to swing by 2 other locations! This guy put on an amazing show! The best part was that he would spray all of these colors, and then spray black and blue all over it and cover it up so everyone was wondering what was going on. Then he would take a razor knife and a spackel knife and reveal those colors behind it! The end result was a beautiful painting of the World Trade Center! The artists name is Enrique Morales and you can reach him via email at firstname.lastname@example.org … Art is life!
2011 is starting to look pretty good with a few projects lined up and a few underway! I am directing a short film called “There Goes The Neighborhood” written by Jason Gallotti. Rehearsals are this coming Sunday and we will be shooting in about 2 -3 weeks! It’s another short comedy so it should be a lot of fun to shoot! I’m also shooting the “Like Me” Music Video for Stan Da Man in 2 weeks down in Fort Lauderdale, FL! This will be my first shoot using my Canon Rebel T2i to do HD Video and I’m very excited to test it out! After that I got 3 other short films lined up that Jason Gallotti has written! Also, I will be working on the second draft of my latest film that I wrote with my friend Jordan Wapner “:Prefer Not To Say” sometime in the next week! I believe we wrote a really fun screenplay and the second draft will only be that much better! Please “LIKE” our film “:Prefer Not to Say” on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Prefer-Not-To-Say/119827934732531 AND Follow us on twitter at: http://www.twitter.com/PreferNotTooSay … Other then that I’m always looking for new projects so lets get something going!
My latest film “Tech Support” was accepted into the 25th Anniversary Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival for 2010! I was extremely honored to have been accepted into such a huge festival. I was glad to see everyone in the theater laugh as they watched this comedic film that I wrote, directed, produced, and edited! It was one of the greatest feelings I have ever felt. I would really like to thank my entire cast and crew for doing such an amazing job! Stay tuned because more films are coming soon from yours truly!
