that’s right, a cat that hiccups and farts at the SAME TIME (while sitting like a human, i might add). watch and glory in what we, as humanity, have created.

renton film frenzy

October 27th, 2010

so, my friend brad and i entered a film competition called the renton film frenzy. we had 50 hours to write, shoot and edit a 4 minute long film. this is our entry. i would also like to note that we finished 3rd in the competition. yay!

What’s the best idea you’ve ever had? Do you have it? Now take the beauty of that idea and times it by a million. Those are the kinds of unique brain explosions that Steven and Bradford have every day. Step into their world and see both the glory and the calamity that comes with a genius that’s touched by madness.

Submitted to the 2010 Renton Film Frenzy. 3 requirements that we had to follow were:
1. A part of the film must contain either a piece of Renton art, history or culture.
2. We had to use the phrase, “DTR” (which presumably stands for downtown Renton, but we could use it however we pleased).
3. We had to shoot a scene at Renton High School.

fall in the pumpkin patch

October 23rd, 2010

so, I was just testing out the “movie trailer” feature in the new iMovie. i tried to make it as cliche as possible. i’m pretty sure i’ve seen the trailer blurb below (or minor variations) in about 100 different movies.

3 crazy children
discover that life is what happens

when you’re busy making other plans

who done it????????

September 29th, 2010
well we have a mystery in our home that has been impossible to solve due to an extremely good liar. on sunday asher asked me to brush his hair before church and while i was doing it, i noticed that there was a patch of hair that had been cut off right on his crown. i asked him who cut his hair and he looked me right in the eyes and said, "lily cut my hair!" i then proceeded into lily's room and asked her and she will swear up and down that she didn't do it. i have tried asking asher in every way possible if it was him and not lily but he is sticking to his guns that she did it. who am i suppose to believe?????

fortunately it is a boys hair and not on the crown of lily's head but i don't want my children cutting their own or even their siblings hair. i can only imagine what will happen to this little baby to be if it is a girl and the kids think it is funny to cut hair.

has anyone had this problem? do i ban them from scissors or just move on and hope that it doesn't happen again??? please help!!!!!

iMovie for iPhone test

June 24th, 2010

So, I just downloaded iMovie for the iPhone and this is a test using that last video that I shot. For the uninitiated, iMovie is the basic Mac movie editing software that, for a basic editor, blows the doors off of Windows Movie Maker (no offense to any WMM lovers out there). Well, they made a scaled-down version for the iPhone 4 that’s actually really cool. It took me 5 times longer to make this movie than it would have on a PC, but then again, this is all being done on a phone. Pretty impressive in my book.

EDIT: I just realized that my song was a little too short for the video. I suppose I should have proofed it first. Oh well.

iPhone 4 test video

June 23rd, 2010

I just wanted to test out the video new iPhone 4 (which just arrived today). I have to say, for a PHONE (that’s right, this thing is a PHONE) this is the best video I’ve ever seen. I’ll still be using the Canon when I’m shooting my masterpieces, but I have no reservations about pulling this thing out when needed.
