Austin… what can I say? It was really weird. The story for Austin is full of silliness and definitely worth checking out. Watch episode 1 to get a taste of the absurdity:
For the last few months Justine and I have been running around together shooting videos for At&t. The videos for our Anchorage trip are finally up.
I always have a ton of fun working with Justine and this project was especially interesting. The Studio 8 guys wrote, shot and edited. I absolutely love those guys. They make a lot of videos and the videos are uncomfortably hilarious. Professional, organized, and adorable.<3
I’m currently in Chicago filming our last installment of the At&t series. I absolutely love Chicago and I’m really glad to be back here. One of the first things we did was to take an architecture boat tour. It was fantastic. Check out this video I made while we were on the boat:
The curve of this building mimicks the curve of the river. It is divided in two and the other side is angular, to mimick the city blocks. That style is called contextualism. Yes I learned this on the tour.
More photos of the tour and our trip here. One of the buildings has a freeway going right through it, and the building was built before the road. Crazy.
Justine and I are currently in Austin, TX shooting for the next installment of our At&t lost in america series. Videos from Anchorage are going to come out any day now.
One of the highlights of our day was visiting the Cathedral of Junk. This place is absolutely amazing. I could spend all day here looking at all the things that make up this building. Wheels, toys, vacuums, you name it; it’s there. I even saw an old-school Nintendo control. The cathedral is multi-level and there are many little nooks to sit and admire all the junk. He is currently building a wheelchair accessible ramp and a new balcony. Check out this video for a little tour.
In the evening we were part of an Improv show called Stool Pidgeon at Coldtown Theater. I was pretty nervous about being onstage. Fortunately, you can’t see the audience from the stage so it wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be.
Rachel and her roomie Arianna drove for 3+ hours to go to the show. They’re awesome.
The day started really early and ended very late. I was exhausted and had a great time.
