Sponsr.com is the new way for sponsors, promoters, and venues to combine forces and put on great events. We created this video to shed some light on the problems facing the sponsorship industry and to tell the world about this cool new platform.
Adding Some Fuel To The Engine
Here is a behind the scenes look at the design process of our latest film for EngineYard.com. This was our first go at working with an illustrator and facing the challenges of animating a cartoon like film.
After the pre-visualization was a lock we handed off our rough sketches to Mr. Andrew Power. An amazing young illustrator that we found on Dribbble.com. He took our write board doodles and turned them into tiny pieces art.
Now it was up to us to bring these little guys to life so we pushed around some keyframes, added a music bed and threw in some sound effects. Now the finished product is out there for the whole world to see.
So I recently shot some footage at the http://Grooveshark.com headquarters in Gainesville, FL and I needed to create a logo reveal for the beginning of the final film. Since this is “Shark Week” I thought that it was fitting to show you how I did it. Enjoy.
FYI: Grooveshark.com is an online music search engine, music streaming service and music recommendation web app. You should check it out.
We heard that Hiten Shah’s (the founder of KissMetrics) birthday was coming up so we thought that it would be nice to wish him a happy birthday Less Films style.

You can hear more DROPkill at Soundcloud.com/dropkill Some of my favorites are “The Grand Entrance” and “Fracktured”
I stopped by Dropkill’s home studio to put the finishing touches on a top secret “Happy Birthday” project slated to drop sometime this weekend. Drop’s face has been blurred out to protect his privacy. If word got out that he was helping me with this project I don’t know what would happen to him.
While LessFilms was on location at the @frontendconf in St. Petersburg, FL we documented some of the indigenous species that call St. Pete home.

We’re headed to Gainesville, FL to film some tomfoolery with the @grooveshark team. Going totally guerrilla on this one with a stripped down 7D rig and a boom mic. Lighting? Who needs lighting?
