[VimeeeeeO] <— 1,500,000 Wow - This is hypnotizing. Having recently visited the Chamonix valley in Europe and getting to whitness Mont Blanc up close and personal… and now with this single genius camera shot, Speed Riding Mont Blanc doesn't seem that far fetched :)
[Vimeeeeeo] <— 11,400 Hmmmmm... Justin Majeczky has figured out some good timelapse and tracking techniques to make candy for your eyes. Because of this - and a couple *other* things ... I think I will be visiting Lake Tahoe this weekend :) Awesomeness work Majeczky.
Shot with Canon 7d, 5d mkii and 5d mkiii,. Moving shots were accomplished by using the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly with the Merlin Acuter telescope head.
[YouTubeUlar] <— 6,332 On March 5th, 2013 the Yard House decided to drop a new series of videos to support their "We Are Yard House" campaign they started a year ago. I'm not going to lie, this is rejuvenating to me because I feel as if Yard House was a dying brand in my book following their $585 million dollar sellout last year to Darden Restaurants (Red Lobster, Olive Garden, LongHorn, Bahama Breeze, Seasons 52, The Capital Grille, Eddie V’s).
At the turn of the century the Yard House was iconic into where I conducted a lot of business due to it’s atmosphere, music, beer and former leader Steele Platt. Steele created a very unique environment based on good music and beer. His automation ability to control all the music at all times in all of his restaurants using an iMac and MegaSeg was revolutionary and ahead of it’s time – kind of like his first restaurant project, the Boiler Room at the Tivoli in Downtown Denver.
Kids, you have to remember this was before your iPhones, iPods and iTunes and way before Apple owned the world. Free wireless internet was all the rage and to see someone who believed in technology (and beer) the way we do was refreshing. I remember emailing Steele from his Colorado Mills Yard House (opened in 2003) thanking him for the awesomeness he was creating, and I’m pretty we sent him an original iPod as a friendly gesture on behalf of Apple Rockies.
We eventually quit populating our bodies into the Yard House as time wore on… they initiated a 45 minute time limit on their free internet, removed the option to drink out of a full yard glass, and honestly – I think it just became a little too popular and busy for us. In no way is that a bad thing in business, but it certainly is difficult to maintain the same “cool” experience to your initial users as you move forward with sizing.
I have nothing against the Yard House, I just feel as if they haven’t reached out to me lately and their new “We Are Yard House” campaign finally fills that void. These stories are long enough to demand respect, which good work is granted, but short enough to keep my attention clicking through them.

They are very similar to the Apple videos I've done in the past... only with cooler toys, cameras and shot options now :) [Steele Platt – Yard House bio]

[YouTubeUlar] <— 470,410 I want this drifting action to happen on Berthoud Pass - in snow. End of Hydle Story. Red Bull Story:
“The Crown Range, New Zealand. 47 corners, 1076 metres elevation, 10.4km long. The country’s highest paved roadway. For a moment in time it belongs to one man, Mike Whiddett. The moment will become, the drive of a lifetime.
The drive for Mike Whiddett will be challenging and faster than most. For the first time in NZ motorsport history, the road has been closed across three sections for a unique filming opportunity. The New Zealand-based international drift driver has a chance to push his bespoke quad-rotor rotary engine car to new limits on a completely clear road. The road closure signs are rolled out; it is time for Mad Mike to Conquer the Crown.”

“Audi’s future e-tron models will cover long distances powered by practically silent electric motors. To ensure that pedestrians in urban settings will hear them, the brand has developed a synthetic solution: Audi e-sound.”
Silent electric with artificial sweetening. What would your Audi e-tron R8 sound like?

[YouTube] <— 4,429,478 [Behind the Scenes] <— 44,751 Congratulations to Chipotle for airing their first national television commercial. Back to the Start was a YouTube web release back in August and carries you through the story of Chipotle, told through the practices of a farmer.
“The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system.”
1000% Genius – should have been a Super Bowl ad.
