Flashback: SpaceTrippin SF

Let’s take it back a year or so ago to this video that Hoang Tran made. Good vibes.

This little trip I took with my friends Tom and Dylan was nothing more than an excuse to get out of town for a couple of days. We barely did any planning for this trip beside figuring out some key destinations. We decided to take a roadtrip up to San Francisco and do some camping along the way. There are two main interstates you can take to get to San Fransisco from San Diego. The fastest route, that’s up the 5 which takes about 7 hours with no stops, or you can take the 1 (Coast Hwy) which takes 10+ hours but filled with incredible views. For us, it was going to be about making good time, but for us now this is measured with the emphasis on “Good” rather than “time” and when you make the shift in emphasis the whole approach changes. So we went up the 1…

The rest of the trip was based around this motto and many good times were had. This video showcases some of the experiences on the way up and our short stay in San Francisco. Thanks to Tom for doing all the animation and helping with the filming; Erin Barker for her photography and letting us crash at her freshman college dormitory that housed a group named the sexy six…,Dylan for partying the sexy six to levels of panty incineration.

Printstagram

poster, instagram, printstagram

Printstagram (AKA Print Studio) is a service that allows you to do all kinds of awesome shit with your Instagram photos very easily. How do I know? Because I myself used them to make a poster like the one above (that’s not me though) and it was a fun, easy and enjoyable experience. I strongly suggest checking them out if you wish to do more with the potentially awesome pics on your Instagram account.

Hit up Printstagram and see what they have to offer. Tell ‘em Noons sent ya. J/K, don’t tell ‘em that.

First and Final Frames

This video cleverly pairs up the first and final frames of numerous films side by side. I haven’t seen the overwhelming majority of the movies featured in this, but it was still an interesting thing to watch through.

From Jacob Swinney:
What can we learn by examining only the first and final shot of a film? This video plays the opening and closing shots of 55 films side-by-side. Some of the opening shots are strikingly similar to the final shots, while others are vastly different–both serving a purpose in communicating various themes. Some show progress, some show decline, and some are simply impactful images used to begin and end a film.
