I watched Sons of Perdition today. A documentary about a bunch of teens who decided to get the hell out of their polygamous town and how they adjust. Fascinating that this is actually happening in America. 4/5 stars.
This looks freaking awesome. I’m so excited for this. Indie Game: The Movie is a feature documentary about video games, their creators and the craft. The film follows the dramatic journeys of video game developers as they create and release their games to the world. The film tells the emotional story of friends Edmund McMillen [...]
I was lucky enough to be part of the opening night festivities for the new Capitol Theatre in Cleveland. The newly renovated theater was a hotspot in Cleveland in the 20’s but it’s been empty for nearly 3 decades and it has finally been brought back to life.

I can’t seem to get this video compressed the way I want it. I was able to render out the uncompressed version last night and I took it into work yesterday and successfully compressed it down to under 100 MB. But halfway through, some strange thing happens where the video size shrinks and you see [...]
