Being an editor I was aware of the controversy with the new software and the features that are lacking with this “update.” But i had no idea that the devil was in the mix. With the release of the new Final Cut Pro X i took a trip over to Apple’s App store. According to the app store Final Cut pro X has the mark of the beast. If you look closely in the photo below, the 1 star rating has 666 comments… coincidence? You decide. Maybe AVID is looking good again.
Back in July of ’09 Fabulous Frames & Art hosted an art show that was comprised of a “trove” of original Charley Harper gouache paintings on board. The paintings were part of the Ford Motor Company’s Corporate Art Collection.
Part of a trove of original paintings in the Corporate Art Collection of the Ford Motor Company “lost” to collectors and the studio itself for 35 years
No one knew they existed until the Ford historian let Charley Harper’s son know they had been relocated along with the Norman Rockwells.
These gems, all gouache paintings on board, were offered for sale to the Harper family subject to approval by Edsel Ford II.
Every painting had appeared at some time or another in the Ford Times or Lincoln Mercury Times Magazines.
My wife and daughter, who at the time wasn’t 2 weeks old, went to the show open. As always Fabulous frames & Art was the place to be. I don’t think I’ve been around so many Charley Harper fanatics as I had that day. The show had visitors from states all around Ohio. I have below a bunch of the photos I took during the show… they aren’t the best due to the reflections on the frame’s glass. Oh, and I could only snap photos of the ones that were shoulder high and below. I wish I could’ve taken photos of all the paintings for those of you who couldn’t make it to the show. Sorry it took me so long to post.
Just the other week a friend of mine send me a link to a video contest for Wright-Patt Credit Union. Myself, Matt Mulchahey & Alex Mangen made an entry. Turn around was really fast and the film isn’t as polished as I’d like it to be but at least we made it in on time. The video stars the great Charlie Clark.
We shot the video in the North River Coffee House in Dayton and all the green screen of Charlie in my condo. We used some Kino lights and a small Arri kit to light everything. We used an HDV workflow that I converted to Apple Pro Res 422 HQ on ingestion and it seemed to work just fine between Final Cut Pro and After Effects.
Watch the video then follow this link and vote for the video “Web Banners.” Vote everyday until Feb. 15th!!

I know there are a few DeLorean cars in the Dayton area but this one was probably the best looking one I’ve seen. I saw this one in Centerville outside a store filled with imported goods from China, some of you know what I’m talking about.
I would’ve waited for the owner to come out and shoot some more photos of the interior and him/her with the car but my little newborn daughter was crying in the back and I had to get home to feed her.
Back on July 11th Fabulous Frames & Art hosted a show exhibiting a “…trove of original paintings in the Corporate Art Collection of the Ford Motor Company lost to collectors and the studio itself for 35 years.” I was able to go to the show opening with my wife and our, at the time, 11 day old daughter. All of the paintings in the show at one time or another appeared in either the Ford Times or Lincoln Mercury Times Magazines.
I took as many photos as I could of the gouache paintings on board. de-OH’s official post is coming soon but below are two photos to get you all excited!
For a stretch of a few years after high school I moved to South America and lived in the northern region of Argentina. Salta, Tucuman and Jujuy were my stomping grounds and empanadas, alfajores and mirinda manzana were staples in my diet. While in Argentina I was obsessed with their art, specifically Florencio Molina Campos. I won’t go too much into Molina Campos now but here are just a few things to consider… he did paintings for the Alpargatas calenders in Argentina and then in the United States for Minneapolis Moline Power Implement Co. He also spent some time working for Disney. I have a few of the calenders from the 40′s and some from the Min-Moline days that I’ll post sooner or later.
The Fausto book that I have below is a pretty rare second edition. Check it out and let me know what you think.
