Nissan 240sx & some new work

Rear wheel drive is sweet. Last week, I picked up a 1995 Nissan 240sx from a friend of Ricky Chu's (Technical Editor, riceboytv). It is almost completely stock. It does have Tanabe coil-overs and a APEXi cat back exhaust- but other than those two modifications is very very stock. This is a rarity in Southern California considering the number of 240's that have been snatched up by racers and converted into drift cars and burn out monsters. I'm still formulating my plan for the car, but it will eventually run an S14 or 15 SR20DET motor, new wheel package, intake, front mounted intercooler, upgraded exhaust header, plus a few aesthetic upgrades: new paint, hood, trunk, and minimal body kit.

Here is a recent advertisement I edited for the Spocom Auto Show:

VOW- "Flashing Lights- Take Two"

Kanye West presents the second version of his single "Flashing Lights". Instead of being beaten to death with a shovel, version number two follows the subject of the song through a series of stills. The flashbacks to the night before and the NYC backdrop make the video more fitting to the lyrics.

VOW- TOTO "Africa"

I can barely contain myself- this video made my day. Having never seen it before I was in for a shock, but loved every globe spinning generalized minute of it...

Formula D Atlanta Coverage

This past weekend I visited Road Atlanta for the second stop on the Formula D 2008 series. It was my responsibility to cover the event with a video edit. Dig it below. The event was great, the cars were bonkers, and the track ate more than a few bumpers with its fast middle "S" curve.

Rice Boy TV- 5zigen Euro Accord Type R

Team 5zigen's Euro Accord Type-R from RiceBoyTV on Vimeo.

This video is my second finished video for Rice Boy TV.

Props to CJ, RikDaddy, and JuneBug for their hard work on the piece. It feels sweet to finish a project that covers a feature car from importation to the United States, engine install, track testing, and seeing it race competitively. Team 5zigen is great and the Euro Accord Type R/Acura TSX makes me drool. decked out in a wide body kit, with custom 5zigen racing parts (intake manifold, engine mounts, exhaust system) and naturally aspirated this car is incredible.

Check out the edit and as always tune into for daily content. Happy Cinco de Drinko.

Camera(s) Sony Ex-1 (1080p, square pixels, 23.98)
Cut on Final Cut Pro 6 (XD native)
Color Corrected in FCP (3 Way like Skyline Chili)
Custom Color grading with Magic Bullet Looks 3 (my own workings- no presets)

VOW- "Stress"

Been anxiously awaiting this video by one of my favorite bands JUSTICE. Here is the video for a great single off the album "Cross". The video is difficult to watch because of the violence, but the end shot is incredible- and it reminds me of Paris, France. On the steps of Sacre Coeur, where I got hustled by some dudes trying to sell me custom rings. Shot incredibly well, captivating, and as other reviewers have said- "difficult to watch more then once".

Rice Boy TV- Elizabeth Ashley

Next week's Rice Gurl is the rockin hot Elizabeth Ashley. She is on a personal quest to find a midget-chinese-jesus and I wish her all the luck. Check out next Friday for the video. Also Monday's video, releasing @ 9am will have my signature look all over it.

Animated GIFs

The animated GIFs above were made for my myspace page. They are simple to make in an After Effects timeline and are impressive compared to a still image.

If you are a band, aspiring model, actor, or just want some stellar photos- hit me up. I really enjoy photography and feel like that enjoyment comes through in the final images.

VOW- "Mind over Matter"

Mind Over Matter from Will Roegge on Vimeo.
From the archives comes this classic- circa 2002. A young looking Brandon Wise and a super young looking Will Roegge take on the best ledges, drops, gaps, and ramps the west-side of Cleveland had to offer. I post this because now that I started riding the mini ramp at work- I haven't been this banged up- since I was rolling back in the day. Who ever could have guessed my current interest in skateboarding? I used to hate wood-pushers.
