I f’n knew it! Cats are really just french existentialist who live a Nouvelle Vague kinda life. And thats why their my fav animals.
Days of reflection. Sometimes you feel ambition is not so great, and did we just waste our time…
Just a test having fun with making Logos. However, I definitly need to redo this logo, since the font looks like it reads: “Her Ghost F*ckers.”
Trust me it’s meant to read: “Her Ghost FLICKERS” Doh!

“Read so hard, I memorize, The Illiad… I know lines. Watch me spit, classic lit, epic poems that don’t rhyme. War and Peace, piece of cake, read Tolstoy in 3 days. Straight through, no delays. Didn’t miss a word. Not one phrase.”
A refreshing and light take on N*ggas in Paris. May not bump as hard, but more than witty and clever enough.
3 Films about passionate people. It’s through these individuals that we get a glimmer of passion. It’s infectious. It’s inspiring. We can be a better us, through what we love, we can break free from the limitations we’re told are present. And if we try hard enough we can enjoy the process, all the while. Yes we love our families, friends, pets, but we still need more, we all need to love what we do.

Passion for what we do, builds us up, expands us, and transcends us. No matter where we come from, what were told we cannot achieve, and no matter what prejudices come our way, our mental space is safe as long as we have, yes our families friends, and others, but also as long as we have passion for creation, what ever it is we create. Because when we create, we change the landscape.
“Your did not have to be constrained by your up-bringing your looks, or by the social context that oppressed you. You can call upon your own power of imagination and you can create a transformative self” -Bruce Springsteen
BATTLE ROYLE: IT’S A SHOOTOUT, DUCK FOR COVER!
The Camera that filmed our Dreams! CANON C300
Hide your kids, Hide your wife and hide your husband, cause these bad ass cameras are out roaming the streets! The video above is shot on the C300. This camera is off the charts. Scenes of this test footage were done with purely the moon, lighting the scene. You really got to give it to canon for this beautiful camera, ( We all know there are other cameras, such as the Scarlet-X or the Nikon D800, that are fierce competition, or may even be more practical, but this is the cam that has the “Look” that makes my knees buckle.) Compare this no light test footage, done without a production, to the big production Nikon D800 footage below & you can judge for yourself. Now granted there is a lot of differences between the cameras, and major price difference, but you know what they say; The heart wants what the heart wants …and so it must have. This is the camera we’ve been waiting for all our lives. The look of this cam, is right up our alley.
Video Stats: Canon C300; ISO 10,000 1/24 sec (24p), 50MM L 1.2 @ 1.4 or 1.2 for moonlit scenes. walking/tracking shot after the credits shot @ 20,000, 35mm f1.4. Go to vimeo website for further stats
Ok kids, time to act like grown ups! Here’s the bad news …the price …the price …well it’s ahem 16G’s. OH quit your whimpering! No one likes a baby! Bite your lip and walk it off. We can always rent, right?!
…P.S. the soundtrack on this vid is heart-achingly lame, so mute it and put on your on music.
Now time for some:
Fierce Competition! NIKON D800
And when we say fierce we mean fuc’in FIERCE! The Nikon D800 is a mean mean camera and should be treated with respect. With a 36.3MP FX-format CMOS Sensor it is packing some major pixels. An ISO equivalent of 100-25,600 is no joke either. Unfortunately it still stuck with 1280x720 for 60fps. But get this; we get all this for just 3,000 buck daddy! Now this is were the camera really sticks out above the rest, at least for right now. However what are us Canon users to do, when we’ve already collected a range of L Series lenses. Decisions, Decisions. As for this video, I find it a little much and a bit cheesy, but god damn those early motorcycle scenes are the cat’s pyjamas! And it seems that some of these scenes are low light, such as overhead shots of the motorcycle diving on the street with the only lighting being the street lamps. Impressive.

Here’s a behind the scenes look of the shooting of this mama-jammer:
… Is it just me, or is it a bit pretentious when a director goes just by one name?
Bad Ass Shoegazer.
The song is just plain awesome music, it’s understood. Let’s talk shop: A fitting video for a bad ass song.
The video takes place in mostly Extreme Close-Ups & Close-Ups, peppered with Medium Shots, but hardly any Wides if any (think there my be counted 1, but even that’s a judgement call.) You gotta love the Slo-Mo, it seems as if they used Twixtor on this, but that’s just a guess.
Anyhow the sped-up repetitions is where its truly at in this video. The images just jump back and forth going along nicely to the wall of guitar rhythm. As for the look, there’s a beautiful sharpness to the video, and the lighting is clean, diffused and complementary, with the background dark and moody.
The mixture of these techniques is hypnotic and wonderful. A brilliant video.
Shout Out to LUX TRONIK for bringing this one to my attention.
