While it may seem the blog itself has been neglected – it’s for good reason. I haven’t taken any photos in a while (that didn’t pertain to actual work/clients), but… I have been updating the VLOG on Youtube at least twice a week so if you’re interested in keeping up – Follow the Youtube.
Also Big news! The Mystery Meat 5 date has been announced; OCTOBER 22nd 2017. (Facebook Event Page)
All done in one night; Shot in Downtown Orlando and edited in Final Cut Pro X. I wish I could have used a better song or something along those lines but I am still super skeptical about using “copyright-free” music floating around the web. Anyways this is also my (one of many to come) attempt at getting better at these types of videos and progressing my cinematography. Hope you like it!
In the midst of updating the mainpage; www.v2lab.com – we had to delete some of the databases that were causing the server to not accept the wordpress install…. with that being said – we lost some of our archives (which were the v2lab.com/two director) which was an older version of the site – i believe ~2013-2014 years of coverage; while I am sad that we lost that – I am just going to cut the loses and not try to go back and fix any of that but move forward and take this portion of the site more seriously (and be more active). I also plan to – in the near future – redo the v2lab tumblr – which has a mess of posts and such that I think could be re-done and/or done better. Anyhow please check out the front page if you get a chance – it’s in the works and getting nicer: www.v2lab.com
SEMA happened a couple of months ago (November to be exact) and I rushed to put out a 3 part video series covering the 4 days that we were in Las Vegas coupled with some of our outside-the-show experiences. While I got all of that done in a timely manner the photo sets took a back seat to having schedule 10 photoshoots back to back to back when I got back from Vegas (to Florida). I took care of all of that, got my clothing brand (SORCERY) up and running and now I am playing catch up.
New Vlogs will be also coming soon (as if you’re reading this right now) I am just waiting for my eye to heal up. Everything coming soon. Keep checking back or I’ll mention it in the vlog when it’s all done. Also before I forget there will be a new ‘front end’ to V2Lab very shortly outlining some of our actual services as a creative company. I’ll link that too when it is all ready to go.
Every Thursday Night around 10PM, there is a meet at Buffalo Wild Wings in Cassleberry, Florida. The meet is usually pretty relaxed, of course with the occasional nonsense… but it makes for a good time none-the-less. I have included a couple photos from last weeks meet and a vlog from the week before.
A newly acquired 240sx on Work VS-KF’s
The Serrot Built Suzuki Samurai powered with a 13b rotary.
Jesse’s Blob-Eye STI.
Team Sunworks Z33 equipped with rear chassis mounted battle-aero.
Last week’s vlog mixed in with the Thursday Night Car Meet from that week (First Week of 2017).
I made it! haha I wasn’t sure how I was going to keep putting out content for the vlog; After my foot broke the daily vlogs stopped… after I got back on my feet – I tried to get things back on track but as it seems things took their own course and I really started growing and learning more about actually filming better. Hopefully if you follow along with the vlogs you can see the growth and everything. Check out the r-cap and if you haven’t yet check out some of the vlogs on the youtube channel: http://youtube.com/v2lab
Here is the photo coverage of the Winterfest event via Devin Dees for our Sorcery Brand. I have recently uploaded all the images to the facebook page as well as our flickr page (Click here for FLICKR) which I think will provide the best quality for resharing purposes.
WinterFest Prep. The days leading up to the show I vlogged this gist of all the things we ran around doing. Pretty much just getting stuff together before the show including the SORCERY flags and brakes on the Evo.
WinterFest Show Coverage. Hopefully you enjoy the coverage – I tried to do all of it using the Ronin M so I didn’t do as much talking as I would have liked but I shot a lot and learned more about using the Ronin in terms of filming. Everytime I go out I try to learn a little more and more about developing the videos and building up the cinematic-ness of it all. Hopefully the next vlog will be even better as it is #100!
