I recently relabeled all of the drives on my computer, as well as the computers themselves to names of celestial objects. So far I have
EARTH : iMac
MARS : MacBook Pro
JUPITER: 3 TB external "work drive"
SATURN: 3 TB external "semi-archive"
MERCURY: 250GB external "temporary storage" drive

Not sure why this is a fun as it is, but I shall continue doing it.

LoneStar Performance Explosion

Tonight I will happily be filming this. Expect nice visuals to come from this experience.

Tarl Anderson Properties Newsletter

Another month, another monthly newsletter from Tarl Anderson Properties. We have been working on these for a while now, giving each newsletter it's own feel. Ultimately, I think the handheld approach we used on this one gives these newsletters a more interesting and dynamic feel.

Real Estate Video Tour: Crosby Texas

There is something I really love about Real Estate Photography/Videography. Part of it is how "clean" the environment and objectives of the shoot are. Sure, shooting an empty home is not going to be as flashy or "sexy" as other subjects might be. It's hard to make an empty bedroom encapsulate the struggles of the human experience, but that's not the point of this style of photography.

The objective is very simple: how do I make this property look as big, as welcoming, and as warm as possible. Essentially, how will these photos/video inspire the potential buyer to imagine themselves and their family in the space? How do I maximize the seller's investment to give them the greatest return?

The above video is a tour we did for Tarl Anderson Properties, for a home they improved in Crosby, Texas. (hint: they know their stuff!)

REELAbilities Film Festival

When I first got started with Lukrative Visual last year, one of the first opportunities that presented itself was the REELAbilities Disability Film Festival. I was amazed by many of the films I saw, and was inspired by the stories they told of the human experience through the lens of a person with a disability.

This year, I was once again approached to be a part of the festival. I put together this dance video to promote the festival. By far one of the funnest videos I have done. Check out more info on the festival here.

Lukrative Vines: January

This isn't a complete list, but these are some of my favorite vines I did this year.

I really enjoyed these random lights on a display at Disneyworld.

The Swiss Family Robinson had it all figured out, including fake wood.

At Discovery Green, as a crew dumped water from the marathon earlier that day.  Little did they know there were creating this terrible lazy river of dirt.

That little white shimmery thing is the reflection of the moon.

Texture Detail

Saw this basketball in a yard of forgotten things and had to get a shot of it.
