recently ive gotten the chance the meet the guys over at surface, definate thumbs up on them all. while i was cranking away for the finals week at school i got a phone call about a potential couple of shots needed for them, i was all over it! i got hooked up with kevin malon to go shred some shit up at brighton and then maybe get a few other shots through the weekend. this is what i got over the weekend all while still getting my study on. its been a bit delayed since ive been shooting a bunch more here in vermont..peep the jay video below for a hint of that. yesterday lil john and i hit some pretty sweet urban in town and we, along with the kitty cat are hitting up stowe tomorow, maybe bolton at night...open bar then in burlington at a sweater party aaaand then doing the old smuggs joint on sat. good stuff being home! a little birdy says there might even be a trip to mt snow in the works???

in the earlier post i mentioned i was stoked on the rubberband man song, what better way to show my stokedness on it by making an edit? here you go with a little mini trip jay, jon and myself took to jay peak up in the great northeast kingdom of vermont!

shit was cold as fuck by the way, by the time we got to the car at 3pm the temperature was around 3...hence the reason why i only took 2 runs...enjoy!

im sure that most of you know about my fascination about this whole subject...raves are rediculous, end of story. the amount of energy that is created by these events is pretty awesome for sure. ...anyway, why not show my appreciation of these badass events by doing a video about it???
a few weeks ago, i was thrilled at the chance to go to a girltalk show the night before halloween. witt, becky, and myself all went to the girl talk show here in slc together (again, huge fan of girltalk, go check him out whenever you get the chance!) anyway, afterwards as i was sitting on the couch eating my post show molca salsa i get a call from valerie asking if id be down with shooting get freaky'08...backstage pass and access anywhere i want to..all for the purpose of trying to make as cool of a video of the event as possible. needless to say, i nearly lost it on the couch...i was signed up! below you can see the video that i ended up with...crazy, crazy event, but sooo much fun!

last night i got a chance to go shoot another rave. i called up aj dakoulas to come and help me out. over the next few days ill be editing a lil promo video for that now as well. check back in a week or so for dreamland '08!

here you go with get freakyl organized by v2 entertainment.

happy turkey day for all you sillys out there! turns out that im way too antsy to go through 4 days of only posting up one daily video from the whole west coast session trip...so here you go...all the rest of the daily updates conveniently packaged into one post for you to look at! 




WCS Day 3 - First Base! from Hennie vJ on Vimeo.


note that there isnt a day 4 video on here...we can all thank the ever trustworth gl2 for that. austin from saga hooked it up for a few of us (barnes, brady, witt, steve, myself and a photoG/friend of austin's that name i forgot...starts with a j though) and gave us all a ride to the top of ski bowl while it was closed during a snowstorm...keep in mind this was in may. anyway, with all of us up there i can confidently say i was getting some of the best shots of my season; steve got some dope right spins, witt and barnes busted some big oll backies and brady did a few cool taps and bonks...we even hit up a pretty gnar bar tree tap/handdrag type thing...i was so stoked on it all and then got back only to find out my tape was fucked and unrecoverable...this also happened on the 6th and final day of the trip...when i got back, these two setbacks definately had a impact on my overall mood for quite some time to follow. oh well, i can look back at it now in a slightly better mindset....

jumping from spring to fall...today on turkey day i headed up gaurdsmans pass to go hit the "super secret rail stash spot" aka the bone zone aka jp's rails way up in the woods. the spot is actually really really legit, if anyone who built those rails ever reads this random post, way to go and thanks a ton! while we were up there i pulled out the camera and got some shots of the homies shredding. bottom line..look for a quick video recap of that coming up in a few days! see you all sometime soon and goodluck digesting all that food.

wcs updates

so i get home the other day and what do you know, dylan is blogging!...guess i have to keep up to date with it all....this past spring i got the opportunity to head up to mt hood oregon and go shoot some of the 4bi9 kids (kutcher, brady, witt, and steve) shred it up at a photoshoot-ish kinda event called the west coast sessions. thanks to both aj and ethan hunt for hooking it up on that one! anyway, this event stems from the popular ski site, newschoolers.com as well as amplid skis.the organizers went ahead and invited a bunch of kids to come up and ski for a few days whilst a healthy army of photographers, videographers and journalists follow them around. like i said, i went up there with some of the 4bi9 kids and part of my obligations were to deliver sort of day to day updates, then finally top it off with a nice overall sort of video that wraps the week off. so here we go, day one! travel time!

so im just throwing out old videos i have kicking around on my harddrive...this is for the doc. production class i took about a year ago or so...shit was pretty sweet. this is just a piece about the focus of our local news....side a(student body) argues that we need to broaden the scope of what we see on the basic 6pm news broadcast...while side b (the actual news, in this case represented by mr psarras) argues that they are the local news for a reason, they cover the local ish...you cant have everything on a silver platter, go out and search up on some of the stuff if you want more. ...yup...

its awesome when you can actually do homework at home! for the animation class that im in we get to make mini videos almost every week, im a big fan of them! the one in the previous post was from our second week of class. for that assignment we were to make a minute long piece in final cut using just solid color mattes and filters...thats what i came up with. i just finished week 12s assignment in our backyard with thanks to the new roommate kevin and my buddy collin (who i just got to sign up for one of these things as well! .. ). for this assignment we were to do pixelation animation, pretty much stop motion animation using just final cut again.

speaking of roommates and all, dylan natale is another one in the house that just started up his own as well. dylan is a skier and travels quite a bit with his truck and snowmobile in hopes of putting out banger ski segments in several movies (has been doing a pretty good job at that)...dylan is also a very conscientious person about his personal carbon footprint...(hippy stuff). over at his blog you can read about his efforts and thoughts to solve that little predicament of his...

***BONUS*** all 3 roommates in one post! dylan and kyler like to play ping pong...this is a quick throwback to that chapelle skit where he explains how everything is better in slow motion...

its escalating!

so this morning i awoke to jeffrey having put on a new video on his competing blog. the goals behind his videos are completely void of any purpose besides just simply being put up. although i have to give it to him....seeing a clip of james brown defending himself against a domestic abuse charge right before headed down to south america on a tour is kind of amusing laying in bed still. so jeff, when you put up a video, ill put up a video...here we go with a mini animation (if you even want to call it that) that i made the other week for a class...more to come eh

might as well...

howdy there! 1st attempt at peeping this blogspot thing... maybe ill be keeping this as the new video update throughout the season???

so from the top...recently i picked up my fun new camera with a nice lil wireless setup on the audio side (its a/v for a reason!)...so over 2 days i played with it for a bit in the snow getting used to having something of the like in my hands. jeff, dylan, paul, murph, and kaia joined me on the first day and then witt and i did a pretty uneventful hike up the cat track near the entrance to grizz on the second.

hoorah!
oh yeah, during the whole editing process i diverted away from the pure video side and made a pretty picture of jeffrey... word on the street has it he has opened up his own blogspot thing now as well > polarfriendly.blogspot.com <
