Count Down to Liquor Day Part II –

Holy Shit…what a day. The Axe did swing but the EQ2 team had the least amount of cuts losing only two people. Apparently we rocked it so hard on the last expansion, we were almost untouchable…but then the powers that be decided to take a couple off our team early this morning as a last little dig […]

Countdown to Liquor Day – lol…

Well its been quite a morning. 45 min. from now I get to find out if I still have a job. I got a facebook message from a friend last night asking if I still had a job…then pointing me to an online news article that SOE had closed 3 of their studios, laid half […]

Robot Army

Looks like I’m building a robot army over here. I received the 5D mk II last night and played with it a little. The controls are all a little different but didn’t take long to get used to it from the 1D. It should make a fine addition to the setup. Now that I have two […]

504HD, Sucker Punch

Shannie and I saw Sucker Punch over the weekend. It was mindless fun. The visuals are awesome, some really cool fight scenes and an awesome style to the whole thing. I read some of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes which pretty much bash the film from one end down the other. The thing I found funny […]

Dolly Vid

I was playing around with getting my Pocket Dolly off the jib arm and having it set up on just the tripod for a smaller based dolly system I can cart around as well as running a test on the new editing system. The machine works great, and the dolly is cool for doing slow push […]

Ghetto Car Mount = Cool

Tim found a video for a cheap do-it-your-self camera car mount system using one of those suction cup dent pullers so Shannie and I rigged one up today. I used my Bogan 3130 head and it works great. The head has a ridgedness to it that works really well here. I am not sure I […]

Synergy & XPS9100 = Awesome!

Well I got the new computer hooked up and configured and its screams! Yess…lol.. I tested the video on it and it all works flawlessly and fast. The MXO2 is running and outputting the HD feeds through it and it seems to be handling it with no problem at all. I installed Maya 2011 on […]


Production Vehicle –

Check out this coolness.. I saw this on Craigslist this morning and currently talking with the guy about making a deal on it which might include all the gear in the van as well.  The Step Van has a generator too for location power. We’ll see. I’m going to look at it this weekend and see where it […]

Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Lens

New lens, Canon 16mm-35mm F2.8 L II USM. I’ve been thinking about getting a really wide angle lens for a while but now that I have the 5D coming with full frame, I figure it was time. After Tim mentioned his I’ve been looking at them again and found this bad boy. Another lens to sit and […]
