While this 3D-animated short film by Jacob Frey isn't a Christmas movie per se, it does offer a touching storyline that centers around the act of gift giving and how such gestures of love and caring can change someone's life for the better.
Last week we provided an update to what we've been doing during the spring and summer months while our blog and social media accounts sat silent and somewhat neglected. Most of that post gave hints at some of the cool items we've had in the work pipeline, and as promised, we're back with more details.
Tomorrow's October 31, and that means many of you are gearing up for trick or treating with the kids, going to haunted houses, eating lots of candy and watching today's Fab Friday Film Feature — Pest Control.
In case you missed it, August 27 is designated as National Burger Day here in the U.S., and is it any wonder? The hamburger is one of the things we love about 'Murica. As a child, I loved hamburgers so much that I swore I'd only eat hamburgers when I grew up and got old enough to make mealtime decisions all on my own — much to my mother's chagrin.
Another holiday weekend is upon us. Many will be kicking off the summer season by spending some time with family and friends, maybe having a barbecue or going to the beach or just relaxing and enjoying a well-deserved break from work.
I've got plans this weekend too, similar to those I mentioned above, but before I cut out for the long weekend I wanted to be sure to post this week's Fabulous Friday 3-D Animated Film Feature, Yankee Gal.
I'm not sure what it is. Maybe it's just the right season of the year, or perhaps we just know a lot of people entering transitional seasons of life, but several of our friends and family members are selling old homes and buying new ones right now. Realtors will tell you now is the perfect time if you're looking to sell. It's just before summer, and kids are finishing up the school year, so parents that are in the market for a new home are motivated to make a deal.
Plus, if you're at all interested in the financial markets, you likely know the Federal Reserve is poised to raise those rock bottom interest rates soon. Most financial pundits are saying that will happen in September, which means mortgage rates will start to rise. So, there's another reason the housing market is hot right now with buyers looking to lock in a low rate.
But with the buying and selling of homes, comes a loathsome chore…packing up your earthly belongings and putting your prized possessions in a truck to move to your new digs. I hate moving with a passion. Actually, that's not entirely true. I love the change moving brings. New city, new surroundings, etc. There's a sense of renewal for me when we move. It's the act of moving that I can't stand. All the clutter of boxes and the back breaking lifting is a horror in my book.
I despise it.
It's been a few weeks since we posted the first Friday 3D-animation short film, and so it's high time for another one.
This week, we wanted to share a weird little film about three hitmen who ultimately square off in an alley of what appears to be a near-future European city. They're all interested in a mysterious briefcase carried by a black-suit-wearing-long-haired-but-balding (think Hulk Hogan without the fu manchu) spy who has the ability to mesmerize opponents with his pale blue eyes.
The weekend's almost here, and we know how those last few hours of the work week can drag on, and on, and on, and…you get the idea.
So, to make the day go at least a little faster before you cut out for the weekend, here's something to bring a smile to your face as you watch the clock tick.

I’m always on the lookout for cool stuff to share on the blog, and over the Christmas holiday weekend I saw this great 3D animated trailer for The Block 5 Gaming Class over at the DAVE School here in Orlando. William Vaughan, the school’s academic director, shared the URL on Linkedin, and it’s really fantastic work and one of the better projects I’ve seen come out of the school.
