Some Sort of Pun with the Word ‘Steady’

I made a steady cam rig thing! And it seems to work well! I was finding a lot of my footage from the shooting of the behind the scenes stuff of other people’s projects has been really wobbly and shaky. So I decided to try and make a steady cam rig like the one I had read about online a while back. The insurrections I used are by Johnny Lee. He says it costs $14, and mine cost around $12, so it really is rather cheap to make.

I had my brother drill the holes since he was around, and is a bit more handy than me. I used Plastic pipe where I could, but had to use a steel tee connector in the middle. Using plastic caps made it easier to drill into, and lighter. Along with being light, it is also cleaner. Steel pipes have oil all over them to help keep them from rusting.

I plan on using this all weekend as we finish up the filming of everyones movies.

Today MATC had an event where the different progams show what they are about to students from highschool who are learning about their options for college. I helped out at the ViComm booth, and sat and drew in Illustrator with a monitor mirroring what I was doing faceing the people coming around to check out the booths. I drew these live in front of people:

I got quite a few watchers at times. It was cool.

Mole Money, Mole Problems.

This video here was an idea I had while listening to this song from the Best of Bootie 2006 mix cd on the way home from school. It is a collection of some of the best mash-ups of that year. The song in question is: ‘The Money Song (Hard-Fi vs. Red Hot Chili Peppers vs. Flying Lizards vs. Abba vs. Jay-Z)’ by team9.

At one point, mis-heard lyrics jumped into my head, and I could not get them out. And then the idea of illustrating these lyrics to make an amusing video followed. So, after about 8 hours of work, some of it late in the night. I present Mole Money, Mole problems.

Special thanks goes to Tony for help with the whore. She would look more like a ‘dirty old grandma’ without him.
