Professional Motion Graphics Artist

Video Screen Shot

Add to my slowly growing list of technical capabilities (in addition to Puzzle Quest Maester and lawn mowist) Motion Graphics Artist.The last couple of days of work have been spent making a video presentation for a major northeastern Illinois power company. I'll let you guess to which company I am referring. Video is pretty fun to work with but it is somehow physically exhausting.

Copyright and YouTube

I just noticed today that a video I had posted in YouTube was just blocked in the U.S. because of some music I used in the background. Specifically, they blocked my PC Transporter video that I used to demo some hardware I was selling on eBay. The video is pretty mundane, but I used a Señor Coconut track in the background along with various beeps and noises from the Apple ][gs. Come on, who is going to download the song with all sorts of disk drive noises on top of it?

More Videos from my VHS Archives

I'm beginning to slowly make my way through my old VHS tapes in search of interesting video to post and have found a couple. First we have a short clip from Ben Stiller's old MTV show. The MTV show was pretty funny, much better than the Fox incarnation that came along later. He really has the mannerism of Shatner down, but Stiller can't do the voice at all. That's basically the problem with most of Stiller's sketch comedy.

Sniggle's House

Ahhh... I finally realized that I can digitize VHS tape into my PC using my video camera as a bridge. This has allowed me to give bring back Sniggles to the world. I have many more goofy videos on file. Expect more soon! Fear comes from Satan!
