Something new

So i've been doing a lot of traveling for work and I've been realizing
how much lost productivity time I've lost inregarss to design and
editing and motion graphics. I realized that one main thing I've been
wanting was the ability to edit with a mobile workstation. So I
decided to start looking for something cheap to help me do some basic
design work while not at home. I looked around to the usual craigalist
and ebay, and found a couple nice comps, but nothing quite that worth
the money. Then I happened a across a local computer shop that had
refurbished comps. So I decided to stop by and see what they had.
Turns out they didnt have any refurbished left, but they did have a
discontinued model that was marked down. The original price was about
850. I had a look at the features and the only thing it was missing
was extra memory and no FireWire port. After asking what the marked
down price was I decided there was no way I could pass it up. So after
grabbing 2 gigs of memory the total cost of the machine came to about
350. Not bad for a brand new computer with vista and a better
processor than my home desktop. :-) I found out also that I can buy an
adapter for a FireWire port and still be able to edit video on the
machine. Its
Safe to say I have been geeking out over it for the past 48 hours. :-)

New Site Design

Coming up with a new site design. Basically I'm getting rid of the design, because for one thing I have recieved much positive feedback. Little too busy I think was what came up usually. Plus I actually already have my LLC in the name of Rough Edit Productions, so I needed to do this anyway. So here is a new design. I am thinking of using this same treatment in my new demo reel as well. I have alot of new content planned to create for reel as well. Need some more commercial stuff to living it up. What do you guys think?

Kung Fu

I got a soft spot for anything Japanese and especially when it has great style to it (ex. Kill Bill). This new animated movie is called KungFu Panda and has Jack Black as the lead voice. This looks awesome and I can't wait to see it. :)
