This is going to be an EPIC weekend.

Yes, this weekend is going to be an action packed and full of epicness! What I mean is, I'm going to be entering Sprint's EPIC CONTEST, judged by MICHAEL FREAKING BAY!

This friday, I'm going to be gathering up a group of people to film 5 EPIC Mini-Movies! I'll be submitting them to the Sprint Epic Contest, and the top 10 finalists are going to be judged by Michael Bay (Director of Transformers, Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor, The Rock, etc).

Can't wait to go film this thing!

I'll also be shooting 2 music videos during this long 5 day weekend for rappers called Flyboy and Duet Preme in MN. So stay the f*** tuned!

Another music video!

Last weekend I directed another music video for a local artist named Checho called "Rocking Ego" featuring Allan K. Phreshly (I did his last music video) and this guy named Dio.

I used my Canon T2i again with my new (old) Chinon 55mm 1.7 lens and the T2i's handy ol' kit lens. Here's the video! It'll be up on my YouTube Channel soon soon with all the tech details.

Chinon 55mm Multi-Coated f/1.7...

I recently just got a new lens for my Canon T2i. It's a cheap but really good lens. It's the Chinon 55mm MC (Multi-coated) f/1.7. It's an old M42 lens for film cameras from the early 70s and earlier. The image quality is just as good, maybe even better than a lot of today's lenses, and it was relatively cheap. I got it for $70.
The only thing that I don't like about is that there is no autofocus and that it needs a special adapter ring to work with canon EOS cameras. I may upload a test video to youtube soon.

Music video for Young Rocky - "Touch The Sky"

I also made a music video for another local rapper, Young Rocky. This dude is pretty famous, and his stuff is really good too. Check out the music video I made for him. All shot with the Canon T2i, 18-55mm kit lens, ND8 filter, & the MiniDV Stabilizer.
