Art Supplies

Making some ART ! I got a new “Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K”, name is too long, wow. I decided to test it out while doing a new art project and see what it could do, and how easy it is in practical use. Also to test out the Raw capability of the new BRAW codec / file format etc. I have to say I’m really happy with the options and capabilities of this camera, while it might not be a RED or an ARRI camera it is exceedingly capable. It does put those kinds of pro features in the hands of many more filmmakers. It is a super affordable camera that hits well above its price point.

Making some Art ! Testing out my new "BlackMagic cinema camera 4K", aka BMCC4K, either one is a mouthful. Fantastic new camera from Blackmagic Design.

James Avery Mothers Day Charm Event ..... 2019

Last year we had the opportunity to create four :15 second spots for Texas based James Avery Artisan Jewelry, celebrating mothers day. We produced the spots using stop motion animation which featured their Necklaces, Bracelets and most importantly their Charms. This year they came back to us at ATKPLN to do four more mother’s day spots! So I am are excited to share this news now. Here are a couple of the spots along with a Behind the scenes look at how we did them. These are so much fun to put together and do, stop motion is a favorite medium I like to work in. It works really well for these spots, as it is hand crafted and singular, it speaks to the artisanal quality of their jewelry, which is hand crafted by their artists.

Enjoy !
