Cried Laughing... or Cried as I Laughed

I could spend the rest of the day writing about the following audio clip. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to and I'm sure you guys don't have the time to read it. For now... Interpret my silence. :)

What Are They Teaching the Kids in France These Days?

It looks like my daughter has a French (at least I think it's French) Twin that I didn't know about...

This proves once again that sinners are born... and not raised. :)


Homegrown Political Videos

I must confess... Every time I see a political add I always think how it could be better or more effective. Then I wonder if I could come up with something better. I've never actually gone beyond the idea phase and thought to do one myself. Well this guy did. And it came out pretty good too. You have to watch the ending!

I think if he didn't look like he was reading and maybe a bit shorter it would be better. I would have had him memorize it in chunks and spliced it together with some pictures. See. There I go again. Maybe I WILL do one myself. Anyone have some free time?

Hippie Tree Huggers Beware!

I've noticed how throughout the years people PUT UP with the whole save the earth initiatives of the hippie tree huggers. Everyone thinks it's a noble cause as long as it didn't affect their pocket books. I think years of bad policies because of extremist groups have finally caught up to us. I'm going to go rent a hummer and go club a baby seal while dressed in a fur coat. Anyone wanna join me. :)

If not here's what you can do to get the gas prices to go down...


Youth Group Announcements with Hallway & Advil

They didn't do anything like this when I was in Youth Group. :)

Uth Nation Hallway and Advil Episode 2 from Uth Nation on Vimeo.

Great Job again by Lissette editing the video. The voiceover was done by Jenny Perez who also has mad camera skills. And of course awesome job by the stars of the show Tatty and Jasmine. Can I also mention that I used to take care of Tatty when she was a toddler in Calvary Chapel of Miami in Kids Ministry... Now she takes care of my kids. Time flies. :)

2008 CCK Father's Day Video

OK... I know it's a little late but better late than never. :)

2008 CCK Father's Day Video from Rudy Garrido on Vimeo.

By the way that's my son doing the intro. He's a natural. NBC called to see if he can do Meet the Press but he's holding out for a better deal. Also of note, this video was done by our very own 17 year old new part time staff, Lissette Alonso with very little help from me. I wish my first video's looked this good. Look out Hollywood! There will be more from her coming soon so watch for that.


Not Your Average TYPE

Let me introduce you to Motion Typography.

Motion typography (or kinetic typography) refers to the art and technique of expression with animated text. This is something I hope to incorporate into some of our future videos. Check out some work others have done below.

Here's a cool video explaining typography

Here's one that Bluefishtv.com made for last easter...

Here's a video using the Who's on First clip...

Here's one from one of my favorite Jack Black Movies, School of Rock...

Here's one someone did for a summer camp intro... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7_uB970A2o


California Politicians are "Special"

As a hard-line Right Wing Christian Conservative born in a Communist country, I have very strong opinions I can share on the following video. However, there are times when it is completely unnecessary... :)

By the way Rush Limbaugh had a field day with this. Check it out here.
