Hola amigos!

Yes it’s been quite a awhile since we got a Planet Kapow clip out! There’s been weddings, lots of travel and some terrible wifi connections to boot.

Here is ep 13, the video about the city that I have loved the most so far in Mexico.

Guanajuato!

Head over to Planet Kapow & read Lachie’s write up on Guanajuato & check out the video to see what we got up to:

Video: Planet Kapow 08 : Huajumar to Yepachi

Here it is folks, the video about how Lachie & I got led down the forest path in Yepachi, Chihuahua, Mexico.

I really enjoyed reading Lachie’s write up of the 40km hike we ended up injuring, and I am sure you will too!:

We’d really like to know what people are thinking of the videos so if you get a moment please drop us a comment over at Planet Kapow.

Video: Planet Kapow 07 : Tepic to Huajumar

Hola Amigos!

This is it, this is happening.

In this ep we take our mosquito-chomped bodies to the town of Tepic in Nayarit province, Mexico.
The cool air got us back on our feet and so decided to be adventurous and head south to Jala, to check out Volcan Ceboruco (I still struggle to spell and pronounce this place).

Then we treated ourselves to a 15 hour bus adventure north to Ciudad Obregon, killed a few days waiting for a bus, then almost made it to Yepachi (in an attempt to work on a farm).

Check out ep 7 (and Lachie’s intriguing piece [of writing]) over in Planet Kapow land – (warning, this episode is awesome) :

work done. resuscitation begins.

What’s the best thing you can do after doing mental hours in the vfx world and not seeing your friends and family for weeks on end?

There are probably many options out there. One of them is to let your friends do all the hard work and book a nice little house up in the Blue Mountains in a little town called Mt Victoria and cook tasty food and let you eat it and then drag you along on bush walks.

Fresh air, sunlight & good friends are truly amazing things.

So I finally got to test out my new camera, the Canon 550D (a.k.a the Rebel T2i) or as it is affectionately known in Japan, the “Kiss X4”.

I am sticking with 550D.
(I just need some black electrical tape to cover the red “Kiss” logo on the front of the camera.)

This camera is impressing me so far, and I think a fair amount of that impressiveness is coming from the “Tamron SP AF17-50mm f2.8 XR DiII VC” lens I was recommended.

Anyway enough gas bagging, here are some pics I punched through Lightroom 3 and put up on Flickr. Yes I know the grading is over the top and has killed all the nice dynamic range in the original image, lots to learn!
