On a garage sailing expedition, quite similar (and possibly the same as) the one where I obtained my sweet, sweet, Bill Cosby record (see the Nerds’ Blog back log…Back Log? The Blog b-log? Blog blog…weird…anyway, see the previous blog entitled “Records” if the phrase “Bill” and “Cosby” in succession tickles your fancy), I obtained ANOTHER [...]
So I’m leaving town for a couple weeks, and I wanted to shoot some video on the road. But, while I’m gone the other Nerds have a few projects they’re going to be working on, which means the equipment pretty much has to stay here. So, I decided to take our plans for the Dolly [...]
So we are making a video for Ben Bedford; Springfield, Illinois native. Here are a couple behind the scenes pictures from the shoot. The album is up on Facebook. If you are really bored, head over to flickr to see the entire album. Also, check out his album “land of the shadows”.
Move over Smokey. I told everyone in a meeting that the shot sheet being created was “not a bible”. Dave gave that phrase a spokesman.

Dave’s friend at Iowa State, Andy Montag, is part of the robotics club at Iowa State and does some really impressive stuff. We’ve been noticing that when we put the camera in difficult places to reach like on a crane, it can be nearly impossible to focus the camera. We commissioned Andy to build us [...]

They’re a glossy black on the front with the “Nerds in Disguise” typeface logo in white and a white matte on the back with a centered copy of our trademark glasses in gray. The white matted [...]
Next Filligar video has been released. Here’s the Youtube and Vimeo version, along with some more behind the scenes production notes.
We had a little meeting over the past week, when our spring breaks matched up. Ben’s break was the week before, so he Skyped in.
We’re going to be releasing a new Filligar video soon, but in the meantime, here’s a quick look at some of the post-production work we’ve been doing.
In addition to just editing and cutting up the clips, a significant amount of effecting and retouching goes into these videos. We’ll go through and color grade to change [...]
