MOL Update #5

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Urban Art
This update is a quickie to talk about something that has made the research for this project somewhat difficult: State Secrets. The Manned Orbiting Laboratory never flew and it was cancelled over forty years ago.  Its existence was public knowledge- President Johnson delivered speeches both announcing and cancelling the program.  The Astronauts who trained for this program are all known. There are diagrams, schematics, manuals, first hand accounts, even some images and video from the training and tests. (more…)


Holdin’ Me

Friday, April 20th, 2012

It is with extreme pleasure that I present to you “Holdin’ Me”, a new music video I directed for Darin Bennett and The Requiem‘s just released EP, Midnight Storybook.  There is a lot to say abut what went in to making this video, but first, watch it so you know what I’m talking about. I’d recommend going to Youtube and watching it in its full 1080p glory. (more…)

We also did this video last week, for Zooppa’s “AT&T Simplify Your Life Video Contest”. If you have just a quick moment to click through and “Like” the video, we stand to win $20,000, which we would spend on making more new videos, so please help us out if you can.

Last week we completed and entered this video in the Poptent “New York Life: Guarantees Matter” video contest. If you have a moment, go check it out and give us a “like”, if we win it would be $7500 for the AV Club coffers that we could use to make more videos!

UPDATE: This video won an Editor’s Pick award, thank you Poptent :)


Ask A Ninja Is Back In The Saddle!

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

This is just a quick public service announcement for you web video fanatics: Ask A Ninja is once again making new episodes, and they are as great as they have always been.  The new format is a little more of a late night monologue than their old episodes, and they are hilarious.  If you are a big fan of the guys, check out their Kickstarter campaign to raise some funds to do things the right way.  Go ninja go!

I was lucky enough to be one of the 110,000 people in Las Vegas for the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show this past weekend, and I had a somewhat unexpected reaction to what I saw.  I expected to be surrounded by a dazzling array of innovative (if not bizarre) consumer products, on display for the world to see and fall in love with.  What I encountered was thousands of products that showed little to no original thought, and a collection of giant companies continuing to refuse to work together to improve the lives of their customers.  Here are a few observations: (more…)


Help Make “Lilith & Thatch” A Reality

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009


Ryan Reeb is working on an animated short film called “Lillith & Thatch”, and he needs your help to complete it.  They’ve run up against a wall and they need some funding to push through and find the talented artists required to finish the project.  They made a Kickstarter page for the project so you can find out more about it and donate a little or a lot and make this dream a reality.  Please pass this info along and get the word spread far and wide, we’re trying to get Ryan out of his VFX artist’s chair and into a Director chair where he belongs!
