2015 has come to an end and so it is time to continue my tradition of listing all the new movies I saw in the past year. As a refresher these are not limited to movies that were released in 2015, but also movies that I had never seen before. So here it is, my list of movies for 2015:
Although I haven’t made it public on this blog yet (which is surprising for me) I am a huge Star Wars fanboy. I hope that one day I’ll able to work on or be in a Star Wars movie and since Disney is continuing the franchise my dream lives on. But in honor of Force Friday, I thought I’d share the closest that I’ve come to working on Star Wars which was the short film “Succumb” I edited back in 2009. It’s a steampunk/sci-fi movie and includes a lightsaber fight which was a ton of fun to animate. It was my first time working with the lightsaber effect but won’t be the last. This is just a preview of the scene but if you want to watch the whole movie you can at this link: https://vimeo.com/17269285
This past weekend Treyarch released the multiplayer beta for the latest entry in the Call of Duty series, Black Ops III. The beta was originally going to be released only to those who had pre-ordered the game but after the first two days the beta was unlocked to all Playstation 4 owners. I quickly downloaded it and got to playing!
I was going through some of my older projects recently and uncovered this ad campaign concept I made back in 2009 for not driving without car insurance. I watched it again and it’s still one of my favorite videos I’ve ever made purely because of the randomness of the concept. Why car insurance? Why does the businessman live in a RV? (Spoiler alert: It’s because I lived in that RV for a time) Why is the ninja hunting him? Who knows but it’s about as dumb as driving without car insurance.
Sorry to trick you, but this isn’t about an obscure Friends episode. It’s about blowing up stuff…virtually.
I am a fairly skilled gamer, and while my kill to death ratio in most games is not in the positive, I still manage to pull off a couple of (what I think) are some cool moves. Thanks to the wonderful recording function on the PS4 I now have the ability to share these rare moments of awesome when they happen. In this case, my opponents meet their end by ignoring the dangers of grenades. Enjoy!
1. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
2. Watch Dogs
Heads up, a little bit of NSFW language in this one.
My wife Samantha and I (Sam & Jerrett = JAM) recently celebrated our first anniversary! During our first year of marriage, I had off and on been working on our wedding and honeymoon footage. For our honeymoon we traveled to New York City and being huge 30 Rock fans, I thought it fitting that I recreate the 30 Rock intro using our photos and video from the trip to personalize it. Enjoy!
As is tradition, here is the list of new movies that I watched in 2014. For those who haven’t read my lists for 2012 and 2013, the movies in this list are those that I watched for the first time. Without further ado, here is 2014 in movies: Continue reading “My Year in Movies: 2014”
This last week I was able to take part in the beta for Bungie’s upcoming game Destiny. After playing, my excitement for this game skyrocketed as I played through the first few missions. Unfortunately I was only able to play for 3 days of the 10 day windows, but I was able to level up my Hunter class Guardian to the level 8 cap and get a good sense of how the game was going to operate.

What a way to start a new blog huh? Write three posts and then don’t post anything for over a week. Great way to keep the readers interested. To fill you in and make up for the gap, here’s a recap of the media I’ve ingested lately:
