TEDxDelMar video powered by PD, C8 and another PD

We had the great fortune and pleasure (AND adrenaline rush!) recently of working with a TEDx event, namely the TEDxDelMar from -  this event was on diabetes research and other ailments and progress in stem cell research, but the video you see there at the site is the continuin live feed from other TEDx events. Be sure to learn more about TED and TEDx if you've never heard of it. It's inspiring and amazing.

The music track is from DJ d'Artagnan's "Dawn of a Greater Day" - we think this was a perfect match for the topic of the day.... You can see and hear the lead intro video that I created right here:

It was created with two PD's:  the first PD is for Project Dogwaffle, the second is for Power Director, from Cyberlink, a great video editing tool.

It also shows an ocean of molecules dancing to the beat of the music, that was done in 3D, with Carrara, which is from DAZ3D. You can see other Carrara samples at  too

Stay tuned there for more about the making of such animated oceans.

The Artist Within - 1rst Prize at Pumpkin Carving Contest

I'd like to proudly end this post by sharing with you a picture that my daughter did, who's attending college, albeit not with an art major. Still, she's got the artist inside, and to prove it here's a picture that shows her pumpkin carving that took 1st price at the college's carving contest.
