This past week, I recorded the music and filmed the scenes for Extraneous Lyrics 2013. Every year things get a little more ambitious…this time we used a green screen so I can insert myself into the most popular videos of the year. Still a ton of work to do, but I’m hoping for an early December release.
This weekend my friend Shaun helped me film Extraneous Lyrics 2012 (yes, I decided to get out of the house and not film in front of a tablecloth again this year). We shot at 4 different locations around Redwood Shores, and the raw footage is looking ridiculously great. Now I’ve got a ton of clips to sort through - hoping to have it out in a month or so!
Yeah….it’s been a while. Lots of updates!
- I’m now working at Adobe in the San Jose headquarters. I feel really fortunate to be designing the next generation of tools to help the world be creative. It’s also great working alongside smart people whom I’ve admired for a while like John Nack. Without Adobe’s products, my portfolio, videos, and illustrations would have never seen the light of day, so I owe them a lot!
- After 6 years, I finally updated my portfolio; there’s a lot of new post-school work up there now. The original Okaydave is still around though.
- Cameron is almost 18 months old now, if you can believe it (I can’t). He’s taking swim, gym, and dance classes. He still loves Elmo, but is probably more into Finding Nemo and Toy Story now.
- Holy crap, Borderlands 2 is amazing. I’m currently playing with Don and Andrew (spanning 3 time zones) as Zer0.
- Extraneous Lyrics 2012 is currently looking like it’ll be mashup of Gotye, fun., Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, One Direction, and Psy.
