The Horror! The Horror!

A few weeks ago I participated in the first ever Pittsburgh 48 Hour Horror Film Project, and guess what...?  My team's entry "RUNNER" won best actress, best villain, and runner up for best film in the festival!  If you're not familiar with 48 hour film projects, then let me get you up to speed:  The 48 Hour Film Project is an event that takes place in different cities internationally throughout the year.  Each team entered attends a meeting where they're given a movie genre, a character, a prop, and a line of dialogue.  They then have 48 hours to write, film, edit, and deliver a short film using all of those elements.  Fun, huh?  I'm really proud of how the movie turned out and looking forward to working with Locust Street Entertainment on a lot of projects in the future.  What do you think of the film? Check it out below. 

(Warning: This is a horror film.  It gets a little creepy) 

And while you're at it, check out Locust Street's Podcasts here:  They talk everything from politics to mixed drinks to alien world takeovers.  You're sure to find something you like on their network.  

Have a horrible day!

Oh, did I forget to tell you?

I uploaded a new video just a few short weeks ago, and must have forgotten to mention it to you.  It's a quite simple idea I came up with a while ago, and just got around to filming.  Hope you enjoy.

 Have a simple day.

What bad luck!

     So, it's a rainy day.  You're late for whatever it is you happen to be in a hurry to get to, you're stuck in traffic, and now on top of everything, you've spilled your coffee on yourself.  How unlucky are you?  No, really, how unlucky are you?  Surely you've said it before, but have you ever taken the time to really consider it?  Well, lets see.  You've managed to spill coffee on yourself so, presumably, you had money to buy coffee.  You're stuck in traffic, but to be stuck in traffic implies that you're fortunate enough to have a car to use.  In order to be in a hurry to get somewhere, you must have woken up this morning; in order to wake up this morning you must have been born; in order to be born, you're parent's must have met and conceived you; in order for your parents to have met, they must each have family roots that extend back as far as you can trace; in order to have a family roots, life must have come into existence on the earth; in order for life to start on earth, the solar system must have formed just as it did; in order for the solar system to form just as it did, all the particles of milky way must have come together just as they did to form the galaxy; and in order for the milky way to come together, the universe had to start exactly how, and when it did.  Now, how unlucky were you to be able to spill your coffee?

Have an unlucky day.

Back to Wolf Rocks

     I revisited Wolf Rocks last weekend with Eva in hopes of using my new equipment and my one year sharper eye for videography to remake the wobbly video I made when this blog was just starting out.  Perhaps you remember me ranting about needing a glidecam and complaining about the shakiness of the shots?  This time I was equipped with not only my camping gear, but about fifteen extra pounds of camera gear to get the job done right.  We hiked in on friday expecting to stay for two to three days to film, but were once again prevented from completing the task -- this time weather was the enemy.  The snow on the ground wasn't much of a problem, but after a night of 24 degrees in my 45 degree rated sleeping and no sign of raising temperatures on the following evening, we left without a completed video.  I did, however, manage to snap a few good photos to share.  Another video will be up shortly, and hopefully sometime in the future I'll be able to show you wolf rocks in a movie that's up to my standards.  Until then enjoy these.      

Spring is finally here.  

Have a warm day.

Guests of Guests

My friends, Guests of Guests, played a show at a local bicycle park a few weeks ago and allowed me to make a video for them.  This was fun!  I could tell you about it myself, but it would be better to just watch.

WARNING: This video contains excessive consumption of alcohol.

As you can see, everyone had a great time even though many had regrets about it the following morning.  You can stay up to date with the Guests on their facebook page, and if you like their music as much as I do, then pass them on to your friends.  These guys deserve to get noticed!

Have an excessive day.

Here, have some photos.

     I've been spending more time in cities than in woods lately, so my photos aren't as green as usual, but it's winter, so even if I was in the woods they'd be mostly brown.  Here are a few pretty recent photos from around town.  

Spring's right around the corner.  I have a few videos waiting to be made then.
Have a beautiful day.

Old Video!


     It's tax time so I've received and spent my tax return on camera equipment once again.  The majority of it was spent on a brand new GoPro HD Hero3 Camera and some accessories.  Black edition, of course. Woo!  That should come in handy in the coming months.  I'm still planning to make a new biking video when the weather warms up, but for now, I hope you'll enjoy this this old video of me riding that I found tucked away in a back corner of my computer.

Have an enjoyable day!
