Lyrics of the week – Foo Fighters-All My Life

5748BC41614D6B9A67C04095DAF41EFD

All my life I’ve been searching for somethin’
Somethin’ never comes, never leads to nothin’
Nothin’ satisfies, but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

All night long I dream of the day,
When it comes around, and it’s taken away
Leaves me with the feelin’ that I feel the most
I feel it come to life when I see your ghost

Come down don’t you resist
You have such a delicate wrist
And if I give it a twist
Something to hold when I lose my grip
Will I find something in that
So give me just what I need
Another reason to bleed
One by one hidden up my sleeve, one by one hidden up my sleeve

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

Will I find the believer?
Another one who believes
Another one to deceive
Over and over down on my knees

If I get any closer
And if you open up wide
And if you let me inside
On and on I got nothing to hide, on and on I got nothing to hide

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

All my life I’ve been searching for somethin’
Somethin’ never comes, never leads to nothin’
Nothin’ satisfies, but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around and it’s taken away
Leaves me with the feelin’ that I feel the most
Feel it come to life when I see your ghost

And I’m done, done onto the next one
Done, done and I’m onto the next one
Done, done and I’m onto the next one
Done, done and I’m onto the next one
Done, done and I’m onto the next one
Done, done and I’m onto the next one
Done, done and I’m onto the next one
Done, I’m done and I’m onto the next

Sing it Dave!

Done, done onto the next one!
Done, I’m done and I’m on to the next one!
Done, done onto the next one!
Done, I’m done and I’m on to the next one!

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

Hey, don’t let it go to waste
I love it but I hate that taste
Weight keeping me down

Done, done onto the next one!
Done, I’m done and I’m on to the next one!

Videos for Real Estate

20121317_1259952540797882_7557224238060855584_oThings have been pretty busy over at Mojocat Creative Services. As a strategy I have been trying to focus where my passion is. I have always enjoyed the video work I have done in my corporate career. I believe my experience as an Instructional Designer gives me a big advantage in creating interesting, engaging and successful videos. My ID career has given me some great experience working with video. Working in the studio at Apple and editing video was a privilege and a real learning experience. I also enjoyed when I was at T-Mobile helping them create a rapid video program. I learned a lot and we had a blast.Tom as Android Like that time I created the Android custom and had a co-worker go around the office while my friend John and I filmed it.

One important thing I have learned about video is that if you have fun so will your audience.

A few years back I had the privilege of doing a series of safety videos for Washington Wineries and the Department of Labor and Industries. This was a very fun project as well as a great learning experience. I was able to film all over the state of Washington in some of the most amazing wineries. I shot the grape crush as well as the entire process of winemaking.  Here is the test video I did. It’s music video so its a bit more fun than the safety videos to watch.

Winery Safety Project Sample

Most recently We’ve have teamed up with our friends at Rain City NW and Keller Williams to help them create videos to not only promote their listings but to help them build there brand so they stand out from their competition. We have three videos in the can as they say.  Our first two listing video where just launched and are creating quite a buzz. We are just starting and I am looking forward to all the great things we will do together. Here is one of our first listing videos. Stay tuned for much more from them.

We would be happy to assist your business with video, motion or interactive content. Feel free to reach out to share ideas on how we can help. Jeff@mojocat.com

How Can You Use Interactive Videos For Microlearning-Based Training

This is something I have been preaching for some time now and have found to be very true. We started using video as a micro learning when I was at T-Mobile about 6 years ago. It proved to be not only rapid and very cost effective but hugely effective. We need to reconsider much of what we make into elearning and use smaller bits of video or interactive content. And go mobile or social forget the LMS.

‘Latest drones on exhibition in Japan’ —

My son Evan and I have been researching & testing drones to be used for video. We have tested a few the most recently was the Phantom III for a project we are working on for realtors Jeff Coats and Allie Bailey of RainCityNW. Videos to come. So far the footage is very cool and adds a lot to the over all story and aesthetics of the videos we are doing. I believe drones offer a lot when it comes to video. Looking forward to exploring this space.

Myth busted – The Golden Ratio

5d1c4952-47e9-49f5-b0b0-429f5f5c50c7-largeI am sharing an good article that looks at the design rule called The Golden Ratio. I have always felt that where there is a rule there is an exception. When it comes to design I think it’s always good to know the rules, accept them as starting points or guidelines then follow your gut. Lets face it what people find aesthetically appealing is subjective anyways.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? enjoy,
