The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics

This animation got brought up by Adam Hastings in a meeting yesterday. It was odd because I remember this animation from back when I would watch Looney Tunes, and now it's found its way back into my life. Anyways, thought I'd share it. Plus this rock and roll squiggle is everything I wanna be.

Celebrate Cinema

Dave Padgett was just telling me about the Alamo Draft House, a theatre with a strict no talking, no texting policy that allows movie goers to enjoy a truly unique theatre going experience. Sounds blissful.

I'll fully admit that I have become jaded at the concept of going onto a theatre. While my intentions are good heading to the theatre, the realities of public showings are exactly what the Alamo protects against. They are usually attended by loud talkers, presented by workers who think focus is not of importance, and lets be completely honest... gross food.

I thought this captured the majesty and awe of a good theatre experience that transforms you to another place and allows you to lose yourself in a good story.

Why Tipping Should Be Banned

A film on tipping, and although it's an informational piece it never feels stuffy. College Humor seems to have upped their production quality as well.

Color Correction

This could be a great example to share with clients both internal and external when talking about the importance of color correction and how it impacts the tone and feel of a piece.

Here is an interview with the guy who did the Color for the piece above.  It's not the best interview of all time from a content perspective, but he does share his typical workflow and talks about coloring day for night which we were talking about recently
