Massive Video Update.

Okay so I know I’ve been MIA and not posting the weekly videos on here, but I have been uploading them unto my YouTube account so you can be sure to catch those there every Monday. I’ll post all the ones I haven’t below.

I also just recently got around to editing the Dumbfoundead show that I covered last year at UCLA. I kind of just did it for fun to play around with the editing and such. I like how it turned out and even threw in some kaleidoscope effects since that’s the trend in independent music film making right now. Check it out below and let me know what you think!

And here’s Week 6-8 from the 52 Project!

Project 52: Week 5.

I would like to present to you guys Week 5 of my 52 Project!

In case you don’t know, the 52 Project is one of my new projects for the year where I’m going to be taking 5 seconds of video from each day of the week and compiling them into weekly videos. Each video will be roughly 37-38 sec long. I’m going to try my best to remember my camera so I can take video on there, but for the days that I forget, the video will probably come from my shitty iPhone video camera (hopefully I’ll be getting a new phone). This project is both for reminiscing purposes and also to just keep myself busy and creative with the shots and footage I take.

This is week 5 of the project and spans from January 28 to February 3! This week was actually pretty boring, but hopefully its still fun to watch. Thanks for watching guys!

Okay but really doe, I promise I’ll release another Pokefilmz soon.. I started on a couple of them so I think I’ll have one ready once a week now.

Damn, this shit tastes like fantastic. -Action Bronson

52 Project: Week 4.

This past week included a holiday 3-day weekend, so the video will be covering 6 days for Week 4 in my 52 Project series.

In case you don’t know, the 52 Project is one of my new projects for the year where I’m going to be taking 5 seconds of video from each day of the week and compiling them into weekly videos. Each video will be roughly 37-38 sec long. I’m going to try my best to remember my camera so I can take video on there, but for the days that I forget, the video will probably come from my shitty iPhone video camera (hopefully I’ll be getting a new phone). This project is both for reminiscing purposes and also to just keep myself busy and creative with the shots and footage I take.

This is week 4 of the project and spans from January 22 to January 27! This week was a little boring, but I think I was still able to put something entertaining together for you guys. Thanks for watching guys!

Okay seriously though, I promise I’ll release another Pokefilmz soon.. I finally have a normal week so I’ll probably put some together tomorrow and release them weekly. Its going to be awesome. I think. Probably not.

Damn, this shit tastes like fantastic. -Action Bronson

52 Project: Week 3.

This past week included a holiday 3-day weekend, so I decided to add another day to week 3 in my 52 Project series.

In case you don’t know, the 52 Project is one of my new projects for the year where I’m going to be taking 5 seconds of video from each day of the week and compiling them into weekly videos. Each video will be roughly 37-38 sec long. I’m going to try my best to remember my camera so I can take video on there, but for the days that I forget, the video will probably come from my shitty iPhone video camera (hopefully I’ll be getting a new phone). This project is both for reminiscing purposes and also to just keep myself busy and creative with the shots and footage I take.

This is week 3 of the project and spans from January 14 to January 21! This week’s starts off a little boring but I think I managed to get some good stuff over the weekend! I went to Mammoth over the weekend and really wish I had a GoPro.. I could’ve caught my hard crash on camera. That would’ve been great. Thanks for watching guys!

I promise I’ll release another Pokefilmz soon.. I just need to find some time to work on that. The last few weeks have been kind of crazy. So stay tuned for hopefully more frequent updates of that too!

52 Project: Week 2.

Its the end of week 2 in 2013 and I bring you week 2 in my 52 Project series. In case you don’t know, the 52 Project is one of my new projects for the year where I’m going to be taking 5 seconds of video from each day of the week and compiling them into weekly videos. Each video, besides this first week, will be roughly 37-38 sec long. I’m going to try my best to remember my camera so I can take video on there, but for the days that I forget, the video will probably come from my shitty iPhone video camera(hopefully I’ll be getting a new phone). This project is both for reminiscing purposes and also to just keep myself busy and creative with the shots and footage I take.

This is week 2 of the project and spans from January 7 to January 13! This will also give you guys a brief glimpse into my life through both the boring and exciting moments, but hopefully more of the exciting. I’ll be posting each of these every Monday morning. Hopefully, you guys enjoy and thanks for watching!

Oh, and I need to make another Pokefilmz.. So stay tuned for hopefully more frequent updates of that too!

Dad, you’ve taught me to laugh and that has been my salvation through all of this. And I want to thank my brothers, Ben and Blaine, I wouldn’t be who I am today without you being mean to me but then really supportive and.. and.. loving. Constantly. -Jennifer Lawrence

52 Project: Week 1.

Another one of the projects that I’m doing this year to keep myself busy and create a habit of staying creative is something I call the 52 Project. I’m going to be taking 5 seconds of video from each day of the week and compiling them into weekly videos. Each video, besides this first week, will be roughly 37-38 sec long. I’m going to try my best to remember my camera so I can take video on there, but for the days that I forget, the video will probably come from my shitty iPhone video camera (like Day 1). This project is both for reminiscing purposes and also to just keep myself busy and creative with the shots and footage I take.

This is week 1 of the project and its only 6 days because the first week of the year is only 6 days! I want to start each week on Monday and end on Sunday. This will  also give you guys a brief glimpse into my life through both the boring and exciting moments, but hopefully more of the exciting. I’ll be posting each of these every Monday. Hopefully, you guys enjoy and thanks for watching!

All I Want For My Birthday.

To start off the new year, I’m showing you guys the first in a series for one of my projects this year. This project was completely stolen inspired by one of my current favorite blogs, Pokexfashion. But I guess mine is a step up from his in the sense that I’m going to be animating, to be specific, cinemagraphs! I’ll be taking scenes/frames from film, television, or music videos and mashing them up with some animated Pokemon. This is just mostly for fun and to practice a bit more in post-production. Just keeping active.

I call this series, Pokefilmz. This first one I call, “Mudkipz Make A Dance (Ft. K-Dot)“. Hopefully this turns out to be pretty successful, and fun! Enjoy!

And We’re Back!

A friend of mine inspired me to re-start my blog after seeing her new year project of a blog post every day for the whole year. I was going to link it here but I’m not sure if she wants me to, so I’ll wait on that. I know its been so long since I’ve blogged, even over at Dashet, but I’ve decided to bring this blog back (and Dashet, eventually..). I’m going to be using this blog to post more personal things, I guess career/hobby-wise. I’ll be posting things like new projects and updates. Also this might be where I complain and beg about my other site so that maybe some of you will feel sorry for me and support. HEHEHEHE. No, but seriously, someone buy a shirt. I need to pay the webshop fees.

So since its the New Year (I wish I decided to do this yesterday but oh well or maybe I should just date it as the first and you guys will never know..), I’ve decided to plan out a few projects just to keep me creative. This year is going to be the big changer. I can feel it. I mean we survived the apocalypse so it has to be a huge year. But seriously, its going to be a great year. I’m going to call it now. Or else its just going to be complete hell. One or the other.

I’m planning a lot of things for this year. Or at least telling myself that I’m going to plan a lot of things. I really need to push myself and grow (and figure out what the hell I’m doing). Things are going to change this year. Its going to be fantastic. Here’s a brief list of things on my to-do list.

5 sec video/day, released at the end of each week
Try to do one complete drawing/day
Plan out blog system at Dashet: Monday Mixes, Warp & Weft Wednesdays, Fatass Fridays, Lazy Sundays, etc.
-Maybe gather a team for Dashet and start re-branding it. Or at least really start marketing it.
MAKE A MUSIC VIDEO
-Design wearesketchy
-Re-start previous projects (Album Designs, One Sheets, Marvel Paint, etc.)
-Re-design this blog
-Carry around notebook purely for jotting down ideas
-Catch up on photos/videos editing
-Start taking photos again

So I’m going to be using this blog to post project updates, not-too-personal journal entries, photos, videos, and probably some alot of food. Oh, and maybe some film reviews. Stay tuned, I think this is going to be fun. :)

Oh and here’s a picture from one of my favorite sites right now. Poke x Fashion. This shit is amazing. Pokemon x High Fashion in 2012, I’m calling it now.

Oh and I think I’m going to end every blog post with a quote, so here’s today’s:
