Just like a million other little boys, i wanted a lightsaber when i was little. Of course a real one, and i was very upset when the lightsaber my mom was going to get me was not the real one that could cut through anything! LOL And, of course, i have always been a StarWars fan, so now that i know how to do vide an special effects, i felt it was time to make one for myself. When i started with the idea and telling people that i was going to make this video I had no idea of how i was going to do it, but knew i could figure it out. I think it came out better than what I had even thought! Check it out for your self! Thanks

This video came about purely from networking. Even as this video is now complete, I still haven't met the rapper, but i did like his music which made making the video a lot easier. Its good to network with people who actually get things done, and this guy is that kind of guy an so am I! In trying to get the artist in "The Game" his producer, a long term friend of mine, came to me with the project, which i took head on. My tools were 190 professional pics of the rapper and about 6 of his song, some older some newer, and one in particular which had to be used for the release of this mixtape. My mission with the tools were to make a video. So I listened to the songs for a while, made the "mix"for the video, found a great template to use, an modified it thoroughly to fit the "feel" of the songs. I think we came up with a good final product for people to watch on YouTube or where ever.
It also now came to my attention that, i could possibly do more videos for almost anyone with very little to start,... sounds like a new industry i will have to stay apart of,... could be lucrative.
Well please watch the video an enjoy!

I really wanted to start this season a little earlier but life can throw some mean curve balls sometime!..lol SO we got off to a late start. And instead of letting things fall by the waist side Da Beat BUlly FORTE an I said lets make a simple introduction to kick off the new season an get our juices flowing again, I thought it was a great idea.
Plus I had to remember how to work all my programs and editing, but here we go, and i cant wait to see how close to my dreams I can make the rest of the season happen!
I do know this,.. If i do take another seasonal break, it wont be for as long!

This is a short promotion video i did using Advance lightning effect... and since I've become pretty good with it, i just made a claim to become "The most Electrifying Man on FaceBook & youTube",.. Yea to grab attention, and to help get the rest of the show "out there",.. seems to be working so far.
Most of the people i see using this effect just use it to show others what they can do, but i'll use it in actual content instead, just like how im about to do all my videos.

What a coincidence! My friend S. Lantz sent me a link to a song he had made and wanted me to hear the quality of the music. It was right on point, but I noticed the the voice was remarkable as well. I asked if it was a sample voice or did someone sing it?.. He said ot was Jamie Rose, a girl who may have worked with me, but she didnt we just missed each other. But later, while getting a ride home from Lauren, a girl rode with us, they played music, i had never heard before, knew i loved music and started to sing, the girl riding with us was really belting it out, I noticed it right away. Come to find out it was Jamie Rose, my mind switched on, and knew soon id get her to sing in the basement on my little show. And sure enough, it happened. Side note, the first guy who I wanted to work with me on the music and had pulled out, I wanted him to do the music for her show, but because I couldn't arrange a meeting he pulled out. but this show was meant to happen!
For a very long time I have been around music, especially rap, and my "Brothers" can rap like none other! I know, everyone says they're guys can rap good, but I really critique them compared to Rappers who are "in the game" like my favorites MethodMan and Redman. My bro Keleze, called me and asked if i could do a small video for him, especially after seeing what I was doing on my own, and of course I jumped on the idea,... It did take while for me to actually do it, but when i git in the driver seat, it became a Lamborghini! I had problem making the intro at first as it is a template, but the "rotation" scenes would cross over in my computer, i spent most of the night figuring out the problem, after getting another program to fix it it worked! Then I edited the 12 or so pics he gave me an made them work, also it was my first time using Final Cut Pro X, so it was also a learning experience for me too. I think it cam out well! The intro may be a little over the top but I had to show my brother what i could do.
YouTube was or is going through another big change, especially with copy written material. Although I have always wanted to use my favorite song they ways I wanted to, in order to possibly become a YouTube partner I have to abide by their rules. So for music I went on a small search for someone who could make music for me. The first guy, although a good guy, pulled out of the project. But that opened the door for Da Beat Bully FORTE, which I probably should have went to first anyway, but that the way life goes sometimes, im just glad it worked out. FORTE, called me the next day after having a long meeting an came up with a idea to make a featurette with him in it to introduce my "audience" to him.... I liked the idea an he came over the same day... We filmed this! And it is good!
