Experimenting in After Effects

Last week I traveled to Las Vegas to attend NAB. Besides getting to walk the show floor and get my hands on every piece of camera equipment known to man; I was able to attend several sessions with After Effects professionals. It was a great opportunity to learn from industry experts and really inspired me to experiment more in After Effects. 

This animation is my first since NAB and one of the most complex I’ve made to date. More to come soon. ​

A Love Letter to Baltimore: A Foreword

Woody Allen’s Manhattan opens with a stunning tribute to New York City; a simple, clean, black and white look at the city accompanied by the alluring music of George Gershwin. A definitive classic. The sequence is the Allen’s love letter to the city that raised and inspired him. As Scorsese was showing audiences the Mean Streets of the New York, Allen brought us a much more auspicious, idealistic view of the city. The softer side of the “Big Apple.”

Last semester I took an American Art History course that focused on the development and architectural language of four major cities: Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Baltimore. The last of which I am currently taking refuge in. While the course did more harm than good to my GPA, I would be remiss if failed to acknowledge - despite my best efforts - that the course increased my appreciation and affection for “Charm City.”     

Ever since I returned to Baltimore for a sixth semester at school I’ve wanted to create a piece that shows off the true gems of the city. The softer side of The Wire.

With my first episode of Tour Baltimore I hope to capture Baltimore with the elegance with which Allen captured New York. A simple black and white look at the city that has been so generous to me in the past three years. 




An upgrade, years in the making…

When we imagined Tumblr more than seven years ago, we dreamed of offering creators a new canvas. Every post would be a raw look through the author’s eyes and mind. We imagined the interface disappearing as these subjects came to life.

For years, this vision was challenged by limits in browser technology and an increasingly daunting set of Tumblr features to support. But today, we take a huge step.

After months of careful crafting, we’ve reduced creation on Tumblr to its essence, while carrying over every single feature and making room for some BIG new ones (like completely customizable drag-and-drop photoset creation, faster uploads, and inline reblogging!). We can’t wait for you to try it.

The upgrades have started rolling out and will be available for everyone by the end of the weekend. Most of the bugs and omissions you’ve reported have already been fixed, but please let us know if you run in to any other issues!

So good. People are complaining because people hate change. But sometimes people are dumb.
