Studio THRILLS McKinney

Basically the McKinney studio is awesome. For our Halloween costume contest this year, we did a group costume of zombies with a surprise guest, Micheal Jackson (Cha) and preformed the thriller dance. I'm sure there are other, better videos that were taken, but here's what it looked like from the back. It was filmed with a zumi digital which is meant to mimic a super 8. Which means really grainy in low light and no sound. For that super old school feel. I synced music to it as best i could, but the actual audio, complete with cheering co-workers, made it all the more amazing. Thanks to Rachel for filming this for me! And thanks to Julia, Cha, Emily, Karla, & Lizzie for thrilling it up real nice. And a big bummer to Gail who rolled her ankle days before and couldn't par take. We'll do it again for the Christmas party Gail!

Is Internet Image Montage Fake?

Watch the following video which claims to "present a system that composes a realistic picture from a simple
freehand sketch annotated with text labels," and tell me if you think it's real or not.

Incredible Interactive Keyboard Staircase

I'm not sure how people would have known this installation was from Volkswagen, but the idea is wonderful. I would love to have a staircase like this. Maybe here at McKinney?

Book Dissections

It's Friday, which means you have all weekend to do something creative on your own schedule. If you're lost for ideas, maybe these book dissections will inspire you to get away from the computer.
