Link Of The Day - Every Trick in the Book


SNL's new title sequence contains enough trendy techniques to satify camera geeks & hipsters alike while giving trolls & "Cooler than you's" lots of material for criticisim & mockery. 

Everyone else just says ""hey, that's cool" & how'd they do that.

Pretty good article on how they made it and how they came up with the ideas. 
If nothing else it's made me think maybe I can get away with using stuff I always thought was "gimmicky".
I still think a little gimmick can go a long way.

Season Finale

Closing/Fan Appreciation Day.  Racing shots, presentations, prize draws & some general crowd & fan shots.

As the final 'Event Day Video' I wanted to try a few different thing, while keeping the basic fiormat we have been using throughout the year.

There are a few different camera angles, theres some "slo-Mo" (overcranked @ 60fps the time remapped), and I used some off camera sound from

the TV feed to mix with nat sound and then laid a music track under that.  As always fi I had it to do again or if i had another week to rework ti I'd

tweek things and make a few changes but that can go on for ever.

Projects like this are alway a juggle between adding one last thing or making another revision and getting it out to people while the content is still fresh.

1/4 Million Hits

I now have a Quarter of a Million hit on flickr (252 952) and nearly 3000 today.


Sounds cool, & it Is pretty cool that people are viewing my stuff, but I saw someone last week with 2.9 Million hits and some people can get 10 000 in a day. So heading in the ruight direction, but still a ways to go.

Arhh ! Friday is Talk Like a Pirate Day!
