A Brief Look at Texting and the Internet in Film from Tony Zhou on Vimeo.

Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

The Art of Steadicam from Refocused Media on Vimeo.

Invented by Garrett Brown in the early 70’s, the steadicam shot — or ‘steadishot’ — has become one of the most dynamic and exciting forms of cinematography and is one of the most engaging visual techniques in a filmmaker’s storytelling arsenal.

I was inspired to make this homage to the art of steadicam cinematography when browsing the database of “top” clips over at steadishots.org, which are rated by the community. After locating what sources I could from the top 50 or so, I decided to stick with the order presented on the site (accurate as of March 1, 2013).

While I do hope you enjoy my video, there are many other clips that I was not able to source as well as many great clips that have yet to be rated into the “top” ranks, so please head over to steadishots.org and show your appreciation for the great service they provide.

For a complete list of clips by order of appearance, please visit here: refocusedmedia.com/the-art-of-steadicam/

Music:
Alt-J - Tessellate
The Black Keys - Little Black Submarine
Apparat - Ash/Black Veil

Trippin To Texas

I visited Alvarado Texas last week because:
A) Why not?
B) I wanted to.
C) To meet my girlfriends hilariously-fantastic family.
D) To have a Texas-size load of fun, duh.

The consequences of my visit have been:
A) Lots of fun.
B) More fun.
C) My stomach tearing because of over-eating.
D) Sneezing.

I left last Wednesday to venture into the smoldering humidity that is Texas, and returned last night. In the time span of ten days I had a crazy amount of fun and was able to meet many lovely, funny people. I have gone to a ballet recital, watched a double feature movie at a legit Drive-In Theater, eaten a lot of cotton candy, tamed a giant dinosaur, blown many things up with dry ice bombs, played some Jenga, Spyro, and a little Kings Cup with family, had a silly string fight in the living room, lit stuff on fire with gasoline, played many board games, watched a few movies, went trap shooting with shotguns, ate way too much food, set fireworks off into the sky, and shot fireworks at each other.

I brought home a lot pictures, many different characteristics, but mostly a ton of memories. I had the most fantastic time and I definitely hope to see them again soon.

This is an awesome family. Smiles all around.
