1: Be authentic. The most powerful asset you have is your individuality, what makes you unique. It’s time to stop listening to others on what you should do.
2: Work harder than anyone else and you will always benefit from the effort.
3: Get off the computer and connect with real people and culture. Life is visceral.
4: Constantly improve your craft. Make things with your hands. Innovation in thinking is not enough.
5: Travel as much as you can. It is a humbling and inspiring experience to learn just how much you don’t know.
6: Being original is still king, especially in this tech-driven, group-grope world.
7: Try not to work for stupid people or you’ll soon become one of them.
8: Instinct and intuition are all-powerful. Learn to trust them.
9: The Golden Rule actually works. Do good.
10: If all else fails, No. 2 is the greatest competitive advantage of any career.
‘HOLY CATS BATMAN!’
This is the day I’ve been waiting for. It’s hard for me to summarize how excited I am to see this video surface. Because in seeing this video, means that the RED Epic is finally arriving. As a photographer and videographer, this is going to be the camera to have in my opinion. Imagine a D-SLR with the frame rate of a RED ONE and the image quality of a 5DMKll. BOOM! Here it is. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you….RED EPIC.
Buyer beware. This beast ain’t gon’ be cheap. I imagine this thing will be around $10,000. Which is great because it will instantly weed out the ama-fessional photogs. Leave the shooting to the big guns. LOAD UP! WOOHOO!
It’s almost Friday. Which means it’s almost this weekend. I hope this beautiful vector animation can get you there. I found it fitting since it’s so close to Christmas that this strange story involves a deer. I’ve also been diving into animation a whole lot lately, so I have a deep appreciation for this. I get all tingly when I get a logo to spin around and morph. I’d slap myself silly if I decided right now to take on a challenge like making this sort of video. Anyway, I hope you enjoy. Happy post-humpday.
Maybe all those Florida Gator kids that Urban Meyer recruited will be watching. A little pick me up before they freak out and have to find a new coach to play for. Sorry kids. Geaux Tigers! (had to fit that in)
I’ve been a closet obsessive about Dave Hill’s work for years now. My friend John Adams even had the chance to work with Dave, back when he was in Tennessee. His work is outstanding. He does a lot of composite work too, which I have dabbled in lately, as I made the two new Louisiana Tech Basketball posters. Granted, his composites are strictly for the photo, whereas mine are for the photo and design together. Still it’s pretty fun to do. Anyway, Dave also posts really awesome behind the scenes videos to his shoots too. Here is a photo of the rap group Three Six Mafia along with a BTS video of their shoot.
