if we didn't have enough to worry about...

the horrifying story

Lie To Me

New show on Fox - caught the first two episodes on Hulu. I know everyone's got too much tv already, but this is really shaping up to be a great show. Oh yeah, and Kelli Williams is pretty attractive too.

here's the pilot:

Fan-made Thundercats Trailer

This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. This guy took existing movie clips, colorized them to make the characters look like the Thundercats and sliced them together - this is really pretty incredible.

By the way, the real Thundercats live action movie will be coming out in Summer of 2011

Happy Birthday dear Ma-ac.......

as someone else said when they saw this commercial today, looks like they invented the Mac before they invented the sportsbra.

ProPresenter is the presentation software we use on Sundays at R2. Essentially everything that's shown on the screens on stage (and in the cafeteria) and all music you hear (that doesnt come from the band) comes through ProPresenter. ProPresenter is honestly the sole reason I switched to a Mac. I've always liked it, but since a crash we had on Sunday and the resulting tech support experience, I have to admit that now I totally love it. Great service, prompt response, and the right answer the first time - for FREE.

Kudos guys.

Audi Q5 - "Unboxed"

Ken Wilson's blog turned me onto Motionographer, which also turned me onto this incredible ad for Audi's Q5 SUV. Really creative and wonderfully produced.

Happy EVOLUTION!!!!!

Been a while since my last blog (I mean, c'mon, it was last year!) but here's why... all my free time as been dumped into this project, a video promoting the goals of our Evolution series - a series that will outline all of 2009 at R2.

This vid took me about 40 hours to produce. This is also the first videos that R2 has produced that's made entirely of R2 generated materials. Everything from the car trip background (notice that it's the drive from I-40 at Windover in GSO all the way to the front doors of SW Guilford) to the text, to even the background music was created by us for this video. I think it's by far our most sophisticated production yet. Hope you enjoy, and more importantly, hope you enjoy 2009 - the year of Evolution!
