My friend, Mike Salva and I created a video for the “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” – They Might Be Giants – music video contest. Here is the video; enjoy! Wish us luck, there are a lot of entries!
My buddy, Mike Salva is a funny guy. By funny, I mean “Ha ha” funny. Mike makes cartoons are regularly featured in screenings around the country at events like Comic-Con and Dragon*con, but his toons have also been featured in film festivals.
Recently, Mike’s cartoon “Death Row Diet” (featuring Jonathan Katz) recently picked up Best Animation at the 2010 Urban Suburban Film Festival. Mike asked if I could take his portrait with the classy new award to send to the folks over at the film festival at their request. I love this shot as it captures Mike’s personality.
Congrats, Mike, on an award well deserved. Here’s wishing you many more!
Check out “Death Row Diet” below. Enjoy.
Jeremy Cowart is not simply a photographer but, rather, a man of incredible vision who uses a tool called a camera to capture that vision. I appreciate that more now than I did before the workshop. Seeing how he thinks, works, shoots, and then seeing the images from that shoot was amazing. The workshop helped me change the way I think about the work I do and to learn to “see” things differently. Jeremy was transparent, honest, and challenged each of us to think about what we needed to do to take it to the next level. Very inspiring weekend and I can’t wait to start shooting with a different perspective to see what I can create out of what I learned this weekend. It was amazing to be around 23 other photographers (Jeremy, Michael, and Ben + the 20 attendees) in the industry and to work in a creative workshop environment. I was like a human sponge trying to take in every moment. I was sad that it was over, because I loved every minute of it. Thanks, Jeremy, for inspiring us to grow.
If you are reading this and even thinking about signing up for one of his workshops… stop thinking and do it. You will not be disappointed.
