My company, Technotic Media, is working on a new website for Patriot Glass. As such, I have been working on an intro for their website, as requested by PGM. Check out this YouTube video of the animation, which is 99% completed (Just had to add a couple things at the request of PGM). Thanks and enjoy!
Once their new site is done, this will be up there as the intro!
Last week, my intern, Jordan, and I went to Boston for Photoshop World 2009. Having never been to one of these conventions I was a little uncertain about what to expect. With that said, I had a great time at the show! I learned a great deal and was able to polish up some of my skills.
On the first day we took a class on wedding photography with David Ziser, which turned out to be more of a class on lighting. Since we are looking to do some of our own wedding photography, we enjoyed the class very much and learned some good things on lighting in churches, etc.
The following days we took various classes on design, motion graphics, and photography. I really enjoyed the classes on motion graphics with Richard Harrington. I haven't used the puppet tool before, and now I want to play with it haha!
For what it's worth, it was a pretty expensive trip to Boston, but hopefully we can get some good use out of the knowledge gained.
Check out this promo video I made for Redline Motorsports. It is going to be the intro for their new website.

Well, I haven't updated much on here because I've been busy working, and taking care of personal things. With my wife being pregnant, we've had to do so much around here to get ready for it, which takes up a lot of my personal time.
I've had a lot of work come in lately for Allstar Graphics which is great, but much of it is very time consuming. We have some high volume orders coming in soon that we have to prepare for also. It is fun though. I really do enjoy running Allstar Graphics (West).
I also have been working on a bunch of websites lately for Technotic Media. Some redesigns for previous customers as well as new sites, and a redesign of the Allstar Graphics site.
I've finally made some good progress on my truck, a 2003 Ford F350 PowerStroke. The truck has undergone an extreme transformation, and has been in progress since the end of January. Hopefully within the next few weeks, it will be done, and can go to East Coast Audio for some audio work.
This Wednesday, I'll be going to the drag strip (NYIRP) and running the bike there. It will be the first time this year, also since the gearing change, air filter, exhaust, and tune. I'm hoping to break into the 10's but I suck at launching!
Be back soon with more updates!
Well, I just recently returned from California, after visiting with the Rice Boy Media guys. Ricky Chu, John Naderi, and Mike Robleto, formerly of Super Street Magazine, have started up RiceBoyTV.com, an online TV and media site.
Considering these guys are some of the top-notch media professionals in the industry, I was not surprised to see their following and how well the site is doing, having only been launched for a short time now. I had an incredible time at their office, and felt very welcome.
Their site is all about the import and motorsports culture, ranging from feature car reviews to model interviews, and even racing coverage. They do a great job of adding humor with factual coverage and they have a wealth of knowledge to share with the world. I can recommend, first-hand, that their knowledge is deep and the site definitely shows this!
On to the good news! I, as Technotic Media, will be providing graphic design services for RiceBoyTV.com, as well as some vinyl graphics jobs, and possibly some video work into the future. I'm hoping to be able to help them out on the east coast, as well as take some of the work load off of them. They welcomed me as part of their team, and I think this is a great start to, hopefully, a great strategic partnership between Rice Boy Media and Technotic Media. Additionally, I will be taking over administration of their forums, hoping to clean it up and focus it on content to complement the main site.
Visit their site at www.riceboytv.com and be sure to check out their forums as well!
