007 Tools

How many times have you said to yourself "man , i wish i had a camera with me to take a pic\shoot a vid of this moment" ?

I say it multiple times a day but because cameras are usually bulky i dont have one with me most of the time.

enter Exilim...

Casio Exilim is a credit card sized camera that shoots a 5mp image and 640x480 mpeg movies with amazing quality. Next time that perfect reference moment arrives you will be ready!

Check out the site here.


I have recently started reading Hellboy comics and became a huge fan of Mike Mignola. The man is simply one of the most talented comic artists alive , his stories rock too. B.P.R.D continues the story of the bureau after hellboy leaves and it is one friggin awesome story. Next time you are near a comic store pick up a issue you wont be disappointed.

%35 off till noon!

Its that time of the year again when you HAVE to go out and shop because everything is on SALE! its %50 off , dont wait here go!

I like to wait this kinda thing off because the shopping crowds get emotional when there is only one M size sweater left and 10 people want it.

I wonder what the casualty rate will be at the end of the day , take a look at this video from orlando wallmart where they sell laptops with a $300 discount: (click on watch shoppers scuffle in florida)

CNN Link

If you want a laptop so damn badly go use a coupon at the dell online store and get it with much better deal , and you dont even have to wait for thanksgiving to get it.

The stores are responsible for this though. Bestbuy , target , etc all have "Huge Saving" events going on from opening in 5am to 12 noon only. They might as well build a arena and have people fight to death for the coveted plasma tv. Hmm i think i'll sell this idea to FOX..

More info here.


If you are into finding really obscure music from labels you have never heard of , take a look at Bleep. You can purchase mp3's of individual songs or full albums. Also you can listen to the full song of every album unlike the 20 sec clip crap other music stores have.

Renderman for the technically challenged.

Pixar just released renderman for maya. I bought it a week ago and been playing with it for a bit , its very very very fast when it comes to getting nice motionblurs and DOF effects. And the nice thing about it is its very simple to use. If you are a animator like me who doesnt know crap about rendering but still want to get fast and nice looking renders give it a look.

Shot by Shot

I have been reading this book recently to learn more about storyboarding in preperation to the short I am working on. It is very nicely written and informative and teaches you not only storyboarding but all about how the movie production works. Highly recommended if you ever plan on doing a short film.

Inspiration Overdose

The company who put together those directors seried dvd's came out with four more including the music video and commercial works of the most talented directors working today. Its worth the purchase just for Jonathan Glazer alone (radiohead - street spirit , levis - odyssey , etc). You can actually buy the dvd's individually or as a boxed set and save more.
