Emmure Video Premier

Last Friday I met up with my friend Dan, who I have known since elementary school.  He used to be the bassist for the band Emmure.  The band came out with a video that was featured on MTV's Head Banger's Ball.  The party was hosted at The Hawaiian Tropic Zone in NYC.  I don't follow the band and I am not a fan on death metal but I am always up for a party.  The video also featured some Playboy Playmates.  So we get there and a few people show up.  A couple of over the top hot ladies show up which I assumed were the Playboy Playmates.  I figured that we would have no chance to talk to these girls.  But as the night went on I started chatting it up with Bobbi who was one of the girls in the video.  I was fun to flirt a bit.  I found out a bunch of random info about Bobbi.  She seemed pretty cool and she was also really HOT.  They played the video on the big screens at the restaurant at around 11pm.  Then it was time for me to head out.  I had a wedding to go to the next day.  Plus I wanted to see my girl and give her some squeeze'ns.  It was an interesting night.

72 Hour Film Shoot

This past weekend I participated in a 72 hr film shoot.  I was the Technical Director/ Character Rigger.  I was pretty sick on Thursday and Friday so I didn't get to be part of the story development of the short.  We knew we wanted to mix live action with animation.  Friday night the team found out what the theme was; "The First Goodbye" and from that point on we has 72 hrs to shoot, edit, rig, animate, sound design, and mail it in.  I should also mention that this was an Asian American film festival so one of the requirements was to have an Asian person play a major role in the film and also play a major role in the production of the film.  Here is a link to the last year's films.  72 Hour Film Shoot I had a blast working on this project and I hope to be able to link the film to this blog post in the near future.  Right now it needs to stay under wraps.

My first blog entry ever. And I mean EVER!

This is my entry for this year's "3 Feet High" skate deck art show.  I haven't given it a title yet.  The show will open at Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ on Monday June 23rd 2008.  It looks like it will start at 7pm till 10ish.  It's always a fun time and the food is pretty good.  I have been a part of Andrea's shows for the past couple of years.  It is a great opportunity to do something that isn't animation.  I think I am going to add this to my Cafepress designs soon.  For now please checkout:
