1) Watching the sunset after a long-day on set. 2) Maeby going crazy over pork-chop leftovers. 3) At Tecnicolor for sound mixing on BLANK. 4) Our friend, Will, helped during production on Cranes, and during the entire 2-3 weeks of shooting he was secretly finding all my abandoned coke cans and collection them behind the kitchen set :) I admit, I have a bad habit of misplacing my half-empty pop cans. 5) Movers have arrived. 6) Out to dinner with Forest, Gino, Tigerlily and baby Dandelion. 7) 90% of the way moved into our new place… some much needed relaxing. http://mikambs.com/7x7
1) Taking a midnight tour of our new apartment… not long before we moved everything in. 2) Going over boards. 3) Setting up the lighting profile for the last shot in Cranes. 4) Painting props with Gino. 5) Singing Happy Birthday to Margie, Brian and Matt. 6) A much needed night out with Erica. 7) This was recorded around 2 or 3 in the morning… clearly, we were going a bit crazy during production. http://mikeambs.com/7x7
1) Giving Justin and Rodrigo a post-breakfast tour of the stage. 2) All packed up at the old house, ready to move. 3) Sneaking Erica into the Voice stage. 4) Working early on sanding down some of the props for Cranes. 5) Erica never lost her patience with all of our late nights at the office… she would often sleep on the couch till 2 or 3 in the morning, when we’d finally be ready to call it a night * 6) Signing the papers for our new place. 7) Running test moves on set. http://mikeambs.com/7x7
The temptation is to make it easy. It’s never going to be easy.
1) Racing Lego cars in Downtown Disney. 2) Gino was standing a little too close to the action. 3) We ran into Manning at lunch! 4) Bullet Bill chasing after Mario. 5) Printing off parts for Cranes. 6) Gino and Whit cracking eachother up. 7) Erica playing hide-and-seek with Tigerlily. http://mikeambs.com/7x7
Nature may reach the same result in many ways. Like a wave in the physical world, in the infinite ocean of the medium which pervades all, so in the world of organisms, in life, an impulse started proceeds onward, at times, may be, with the speed of light, at times, again, so slowly that for ages and ages it seems to stay, passing through processes of a complexity inconceivable to men, but in all its forms, in all its stages, its energy ever and ever integrally present. A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in by-gone times may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes in Nature. In no way can we get such an overwhelming idea of the grandeur of Nature than when we consider, that in accordance with the law of the conservation of energy, throughout the Infinite, the forces are in a perfect balance, and hence the energy of a single thought may determine the motion of a Universe.
20,000 Days on Earth | Clip: “Mostly I Write” | New Directors 2014 - New Directors/New Films (March 19 - 30): A playful deconstruction of stardom and identity, this unclassifiable portrait of polymath musician Nick Cave combines footage of Cave and the Bad Seeds recording their latest album with telling and teasing scenes that fall somewhere between fact and fiction.
Looking forward to seeing this.
