The Shapes Will Work It All Out
I noticed an “in-between” moment while I was designing some stuff for a website. The red objects are just guides (I’m trying to get all the angles to hit certain values), but the strips reminded me of design school for just a moment, like strips of rubylith laying around (Remember rubylith? Then you are old.)
Here’s a video I shot and edited of my kids’ CCS Spring Soccer Tournament.
Shot with a Canon T3i at 60p (for slow-mo goodness!) and edited in FCPX.
For this promo, I’m most pleased with the intro work I did. The color grade, spare typography and haunting, echoing audio set the stage for a chilling backstory - they help girls who work the sex trade in a cemetery. If that’s not the backbone of a movie, I don’t know what is.
As with other work, the story doesn’t end there - there’s hope for these people. Go to CompassionFirst.org today to find out how you can help.
Purple Belt Test: Pass!
Thanks to Bsbn Master John Wright for the incredible training, all my rock-hard training partners, my family for the support, and founder Dan Sikkens for inviting me to AHMA.
This has been an amazing year and I’ve never been this fit! Appreciate you all.

Has an adult ever shamed you in front of others?
“You said I would never amount to anything. You called me a loser. I hope this letter finds you.”
Coaches, teachers, mentors, adults — you have power. To build or destroy. It’s hard work. If you care about kids, then it hurts when they disappoint you. You might be tempted to make them regret it.
If an adult shamed you as a kid, did it make you want to try harder? How did it make you feel?
