I call 'em Photoshop T'nT.  See what I did there?  So clever.

Get 'em while their hot. So far I've done four in four days.  Will the trend continue?  Time will tell.  For now, enjoy the videos and if you have a question - send it on over.

Just before we go to lunch on Mondays,  some friends (Steve Macleod, Ian Abando and whoever else decides to jump in) and I get together and study out a movie.  We scrub through the timeline until we find a particularly dynamic shot then we pause and draw.  But only for a couple of minutes.  These are no masterpieces.  We are just studying the amazing work and trying to absorb some of it's coolness. It has turned into quite an obsession.  Only a few minutes of study, but a ton learned.  I love it.
