Office Pranks

Office pranks are very funny. To me. Because I work in an office. But I also leave the office quite a bit to shoot (with a camera). When I leave, I sometimes find that an office prank has been played on me. Today's prank involved a photo that was taken this weekend. The back story here is that I tried to teach my dog to swim. She hated it and feared for her life. My girlfriend snapped an hilarious picture of the event. I posted it to the backdrop of my computer and returned from a shoot today to find this.

Awesome Graphics for Learning Purposes

Magnetic Movie from Semiconductor on Vimeo.

This is totally awesome! Once again...I heard about this through Motionographer. They did not point out a specific video to watch. Semiconductor, the group that created this piece was being highlighted. They have some pretty interesting stuff. I believe this video won some awards. Don't take my word for it, go check it out. It's so awesome when awesome graphics can be used for something besides selling cars, shoes, etc...I'd like to say awesome a couple of more times...but I don't know if I should. Does anyone have an opinion about my use of the word "awesome"?

Awesome Comcast Commercial

As a general rule I try not to post anything that I have seen on Motionographer. This commercial was too awesome not to post. This is the kind of stuff that I want to do. Check it out! The only thing that could have made it better...two words...Nic Cage!

Interesting Radiohead Cover

Big Ideas (don't get any) from James Houston on Vimeo.

James Houston's version of Radiohead's Nude performed by old technology. I actually had to skip a little of the first part of this video because the tone was driving me crazy, but it then gets pretty cool as the song begins.
