YouTube in HD

November 21, 2008

YouTube is going HD. And guess what? Its better than Vimeo’s HD (apparently) embed. You can read an article on how to embed and play YouTube HD here. Additionally you can read an article here on how you play back videos on YouTube’s site in HD.

This seems like its going to take off for two reasons. First, YouTube is the largest and most popular video sharing site out there (and being owned by Google its probably going to stay that way for a long, long while). Secondly, its free! (for now at least). I could hardly imagine YouTube beginning to charge for this service, but they are struggling to turn a profit on it. Vimeo is currently charging per view of embedded HD video.

Hope you enjoy.

Cool Screenwriting App

November 17, 2008

Hey all,

We just got the new version of Celtx-a popular (and free) screenwriting application that seems to be taking over the indie film world. We use it all the time. They just released a new version (1.00) and it has a lot of improvements.
If you’re into this kind of stuff we recommend this app for all your projects.
Hope you enjoy.

One of the companies that our sister company, Koerce Media, works with a lot is a social networking webpage caled MojoPages.com. Mojo often hosts social events at various locations and asked one of Koerce’s artist, Rogan, to come down and help out on a live mural painting. We followed to shoot a time-lapse. Hope you enjoy.

This is a music video done by my friend Tomás Whitmore. Tomás and I went to film school together and collaborated on lots of projects. This video is really well done and creatively put together. We should have posted it a while ago.

Hope you enjoy.

Butch Walker Music Video

November 1, 2008

We helped out our friends at DPO Productions shoot a music video for Butch Walker earlier this week out in Joshua Tree. The shoot was great and it turned out really well. Butch is a Grammy winner for song writing and produces for acts like Avril Levine and P!nk. We are editing the video now and will post it when we’re done.
