*crickets are heard* I know. We’ve been rather silent lately. Things have happened, people have traveled, some have been too busy. The good news is that in a few weeks we’ll be all yours. We’ll be more active here that’s for sure. I promise to post more random youtube videos once I go back to Canada (I am currently in Malaysia for another 3 weeks and the internet is f’in slow it’s terrible). We’ll also add more work to our already well-seasoned portfolio. Promise.

I’ve already started the awakening by updating my own portfolio: http://www.makeshift.ca

Will we update our site design here as well? Hmm probably not. To be honest, we like it a lot. it just works. Maybe some small tinkering.. and maybe fix the dropdown menu that is suppose to appear on the portfolio section.. it borked and our programmer ditched us for white water rafting. Hmpf.

Christmas movies lineup

December 26, 2008 by

Hope you all had a good xmas time :) Here’s a short review of each movie we saw in the last 24 hrs:

Gran Torino: Movie of the year for me. Top notch from start to finish. Clint is still the man. 10 eggrolls out of 10.

The Spirit: What the hell? What a piece of crap that was. Incoherent blabber crap with cool visuals that sadly does nothing to save the movie. The only thing that *might* have salvaged this wreck would have been to show Scarlet Johansson naked. At least give us something, assholes. 2 quick DVD releases out of 10.

Zach and Miri Make A Porn: Kevin Smith makes another gem. The storyline was predictable but the script is very solid and hilarious. 8 dildos out of 10.

The Wackness: Very well filmed, surprising acting from Josh Peck and a storyline that draws you in. Charming movie. 7 weed smoking psychologists out of 10.

Choke: Solid start to the movie based on an original and refreshing concept, but kinda tails off a bit in the end. Nonetheless, worth a view. 6 holy foreskins out of 10.

The Wrestler: Darren Aronofsky is my favorite director and he shows why again. Mickey Rourke delivers, you’ll see him on the Oscar ballot for sure. A very compelling and touching story. 10 ram jams out of 10.

Next up are Frost/Nixon, Lakeview Terrace, Benjamin Button and Valkyrie (maybe, my fiance can’t stand Tom Cruise). A full week of movies!

Watch the video and be amazed. Considering it’s in alpha and still blew my mind, it’s very very promising.

August 18, 2008 by

I’m deeply ashamed about my lack of posts. Good, we got this out of the way now. I have been really busy at work and will be for the coming time too because after the Olympics, we’ll get the US elections which also seems to be a big deal in Holland. So I’ll be designing the (info)graphics for that broadcast (I work for the dutch national TV as a designer, in case you wondered). I’m also busy with CD sleeves, I just finished some work for Artas and Brother von Doom (Justin did their logo) and you can see those covers at the end of this post. I’ll also abuse this post to spam my new website, which I recently redesigned: http://www.damnengine.net. The content is still lacking in some areas, but I hope to get that fixed soon. But yeah at least you now know what I’ve been doing. In the meantime I’m also trying to learn new 3d tools and I just started working on a new short animation. I’ve also been playing with the thought whether we should make official wallpapers for bands, since I’ve seen so many bad scans of Job for a Cowboy and Chimaira covers used as a wallpaper, that I think it’d be our duty to provide better ones. We’ll see.
