Currently Working On…

One other thing I’ve been meaning to mention but have been on this crazy edit schedule (and Matte Painting Challenge). I’m currently working on the second season of Lizard Lick Towing. It’s a reality show about a repo/towing company that gets involved in crazy repos, with crazy people. I’ve gotten to work with some really great editors, and producers on this show and look forward to seeing some of my episodes air. I know reality TV gets trashed a lot by a lot of people, but its pretty remarkable how much time and effort goes into making an episode of not just this show, but any reality show. The show airs on Tru Tv Monday nights at 10:00pm. If you’ve got the time, check it out, or DVR it for later.

First Matte Painting

Recently over at Video Copilot.net, Andrew Kramer put up a still from something he’s working on and proposed a challenge;  create a matte painting for the background. The rules were simple, replace everything above the horizon line with something in the same vein as the movie Prometheus. I have never done a matte painting before and decided to take a crack at it. I forced myself to use Photoshop exclusively to create the matte painting seeing as it was a still frame and i don’t use Photoshop as much as i should. What i learned?  Read the rest of First Matte Painting »

Today was a good day, didn’t even..(you know the rest)

Things have been busy. Been jumping between both Avid and FCP jobs the last two months. Looks like none of my clients have adopted Final Cut Pro X yet.  Guess the verdict is still out on that one .  Been working on props for the upcoming short we’re doing.  Currently we’re building and aging guns and explosive devices.

Matching Sony EX-1 and the Canon T2i

The bored looking fellow in this photo is my Brother Eric. Why is he bored? Well, he spend a good 4 1/2 hours under hot lights on a set we’ve been building while Mike “Simon” Ulatowski, and I began our mission to match our Sony Ex-1 and Letus adapter to a Canon T2i.  There are a lot of great forums online with people talking about matching these two rigs, but really no true definitive way to do it. We would like to shoot our upcoming Read the rest of Matching Sony EX-1 and the Canon T2i »
