Early Video Games And Arcades

Posted on

I have a fascination with the birth of the video game and the arcade. I think because I was around for part of it (even though I was a wee one), mainly the early 80’s arcade boom and the Atari craze, that it has a nostalgia thing for me. Also because video games today are such a huge part of our lives that it’s fascinating to see the dawn of it. Back in the early days of the G4 channel there were a lot of great shows. The channel today is, in my opinion, become a little too Mtv in that it has lost some of its original intent. In the beginning, about ten years ago, it was completely video game based and their shows were pretty great. Albeit very low on production value as it was obvious they didn’t have major backing yet. But what they lacked in pizzazz […]

Ferris’ Honda Day Off

Posted on

Now this is pretty awesome. Honda got Mathew Broderick to do a ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off‘ take off for a commercial for their new CR-V. Lovers of the movie, like myself, I’m sure will dig it.

Movie Of The Day Returns

Posted on

I decided to bring back an old thing I had on my old blog. I called it the “Movie Of The Day”. It’s basically if I watched a movie that was worth mentioning I would post about it. Sometimes just the poster and the trailer. Other times I’ll write something about it. Or I might even write a full review. It will change from time to time but it was always fun to do. So you can expect those on occasion. And if you’re wondering why I posted the above picture from ‘Friday The 13th Part 3‘ the answer is simple. It’s because the “Movie Of The Day” posts will be … eye popping!

Upcoming Video Copilot Tutorial

Posted on

One of my favorite websites is VideoCopilot.net. Andrew Kramer creates some amazing tutorials on doing very cool things in After Effects. A lot of times tutorials are based around doing graphics that are kind of boring. But if you are creating something really cool then even the most difficult and time consuming tutorial is fun because the end result is something you actually want to create. That is where Andrew Kramer, in my opinion, succeeds far and beyond anywhere else. The best part? His tutorials are free! If you do wish to dish out some money you can purchase some of the amazing plug-ins. I have almost all of them and I can say they are literally incredible and helpful in so many projects. I don’t get anything out of this. I know it sounds like I’m selling the site but I am just a fan. And there is an […]

Universal Restoring Films

Posted on

I love seeing films restored. The process I find fascinating. Plus seeing the final restorations is just incredible. Universal is restoring a lot of their films and they released this video of some of the work they’re doing. Cool trailer for their anniversary.
