Collage Barrage

OH SHIT is a collage I recently created on a 16x20 canvas as a belated Christmas and birthday gift for a good friend of mine. As much as I love creating art for others, sometimes it's so hard to let go of it in the end! I also posted a few other collage gifts I've made for friends, so feel free to check'em out as well...

W in Progress

Since March of 2009, I have been photographing the construction of the W Hotel, the new Austin City Limits Studio, and the residential condos currently under construction on 2nd Street in downtown Austin. Much like several of the other time lapse videos I have worked on in the past, I created this video by taking photographs from several vantage points and edited it all together into a time lapse video documenting the construction over time.

When it is finished in December of this year, the W Hotel and residential condos above it will come in at 36 stories high, making it one of Austin's tallest buildings. In 2011, the Austin City Limits Studio will move to it's new location, greatly increasing the seating capacity from 300 to 2,000 for live Austin City Limits music tapings and concerts.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy watching the video, and if you dig the music, check out Morris Orchids... they are great friends of mine from San Antonio and a band that you definitely must listen to!

Wedding, Wedding, Wedding!

The last couple of months of 2009 were wedding-bell busy for Magic Spoon Productions. I have spent the last few weeks playing catch up with a lot of the workload, so I've finally uploaded photos and video for your viewing pleasure. In no particular order, here's work from the weddings of Crystal & Bryon, Lisa & Mario, and last but not least, a dance-tastic video sample from Sean & Amber's wedding. Congratulations again to all the happy couples and thanks for going with MSP for your wedding day coverage!

Janet and Steve's Wedding

Back in October of last year, I shot a wedding for Janet Kim and Steve Yi in Las Colinas, Texas at the Omni Mandalay Hotel. Unfortunately, the rain rolled in just before the ceremony, but that didn't stop them and their guests from having a great wedding! Check out their 10 minute wedding video short below. What a great couple, congratulations to them again!

As for my recent update-absence (if anyone even really noticed), the last two months of 2009 were also wedding-bell busy, so stay tuned for several more updates from several weddings I shot photos and video for in November and December. 2010 should be a very productive year for Magic Spoon Productions, with several new time lapse construction videos coming, some music videos currently under production, and some new artisitc endeavors that are slowly begining to take shape!
