As digital film
creators we are constantly searching for inspiration; viewing life through a unique lens that allows us to share our experiences and stories with others. When we fail we get thrown to the side and called amateurs, but when it works we are honored with accolades and awards. From branded content and short films to commercials and music videos, these are three videos I found this week that inspire me to be a better filmmaker.

Awkward. Funny. Relatable. Well casted. Basically all of the makings of a great film.
Investigating a mysterious explosion in the Florida Everglades, a crop-duster named Bill discovers a lone crate that survived the wreckage. Curiosity gets the better of him and he pulls the crate unto his airboat. That's just the first in a series of decisions he learns to regret.

Such an awesome short. Super cool animation. Weird story. A little twisted.
A short we did to celebrate the outdoors.

I don't think I've ever featured a commercial on here before, but this one was just too much fun to pass on. I love how it's build around the sound design. Beautiful footage- and lots of it.
