Motion designer/director Danny Yount spoke recently at the Semi-Permanent event in Hong Kong about producing motion design for Hollywood, and what it takes to break into the close-knit world of Hollywood as a motion designer. Danny is someone we really look up to and I know we are not alone in our respect for him when it comes to what he has achieved in recent years as a motionographer.

JAPAN IN PERIL

Comments Off on JAPAN IN PERILoff record

One of the largest earthquakes ever recorded rocked Japan today causing a massive tsunami that swept away homes, farms, cars, roads and possibly thousands or more victims across a 1300 mile swath of coastland. The 8.9 quake stretched hundreds of miles from it’s epicenter shaking cities as far away inland as Tokyo. Ripples from this quake will no doubt be felt around the world including possible smaller Tsunamis striking the Hawaiian islands and the west coast of the United States. Our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters in Japan.

KIDS WITH GUNS

Comments Off on KIDS WITH GUNSoff record

The answer to campus shooters? More shooters, of course. Leading the charge to remove institutions of higher learning from the list of gun-free zones is…wait for it… Texas! In the words of one university president, “Mixing youth, handguns and partying is, in my view, a mix for serious concerns about safety on campus.”
