Saw a bunch of birds on the way home yesterday under I-35. Pulled over to try and do a time lapse, but as soon as I got set up, they flew away. Managed to snap off one good one though.

I have a Dream Pie Social

Shot some footage for a pie social last weekend, raising money for a church in Clarksville. Awesome pies. The raspberry was my favorite, as well as these two gentlemen.

James McMurtry in 2010

Shot a few BTS shots of James McMurtry and his band performing for an augmented reality showcase. They used stage 3 at Austin Studios as their backdrop in order to comp them into some kind of virtual stage. Live music, welcome to 2010.

321 Lego

I was a PA for a lego competition last month. Here's a still of the Camera Operator, Blake Buesnel, shooting the table. It was a pretty rough day on our feet. I was wrangling his cables for 12 hours.
