Hey guys, it's been a while and PBP has been pretty inactive since our last big push with our August reel. Full disclosure, the work we've been doing has been sustaining our bank accounts and paying off loans, but hasn't been interesting enough to put it in your face.
Recently though, Nate knocked it out of the park with this great music video for local jazz musician Lee Hogans, and it deserves the attention of your face.
We've also been continuing our work with Red Frog Events and the Warrior Dash mud run, and you can see the latest video we did for them here: https://vimeo.com/38447954
We're packing up for a trip to North Texas later this month for the next round of Warrior Dash's promotional videos and then we'll be getting our shots lined up for our newest reel. There are some other things on the horizon that we're pretty excited but for now that's all I got to share.
Hey! Remember that time I complained about how people didn't ever update these things with anything substantial? Well CHECK THIS OUT!
In the past two days we've released THREE new projects. First, here's the highlight reel and the documentary edit for The Abbotts - our FIRST wedding project. We're very happy with it for our first wedding video, and we hope you like it too!
Even bigger news is we've released our new REEL for August 2011. It was supposed to be July, but we had to wait for approval from certain clients that took longer than anticipated. Everything's been authorized, however, and so the reel is ready for human consumption!
Don't you hate when people post things like that? When they're constantly updating you with a lack of updates, only to tell you that in the future, they might have things you'll be interested in? It doesn't take me long to lose hope that this person really has anything that will ever interest me. All it serves to really do is remind me how long it's been since this person has really done anything. I think, "wow, this is the fifth or so update from them in two weeks, and still no product. What exactly have they been doing for the past two weeks to have nothing to show for it?" Sometimes I think, maybe it's better to just keep your mouth shut until you actually have something substantial.
It's currently 5:30 in the morning here in Astoria, NY. A strict regiment of caffeine and cold water has kept me up editing the amazing footage captured during our time covering Warrior Dash for the last two weekends. First we drove down to Georgia and got what's sure to be some of the best slip and slide footage ever captured in HD. Then we went to Maryland, whose beautiful blue sky and rugged earth gave us a picturesque landscape that perfectly captured the feeling of the race.
As an editor, it's moments like this, captivated into the early hours of the morning by downright inspirational footage that makes me so incredibly grateful to be on a team of such talented filmmakers. Red Frog Events has know idea how good this thing is gonna be. Seriously.
Now that I've built it up beyond attainability, sit there and wait until July when it finally comes out. In this moment, I'm pretty damn confident in the successful future of Pale Blue Pictures.
Oh and check it: we're actually legally allowed to operate in NYC now! That's a good thing! Hooray!
We suck at blogging, and I apologize for that. Hopefully in the coming months we'll be a lot more frequent with our updates. But probably not.
