Hillman Curtis: remembered

It has been fifteen years since I first read his book, and a year after his passing, but I still find inspiration in the work of Hillman Curtis.

Hillman's pioneering work in Flash, was always a touchstone for me in my early career, and I still reference his books today, even though I rarely work in the medium. His books and his legacy will always be remembered.

Hillman was a strong advocate of re-inventing ones self, and in his own career(s), he moved from playing music to graphic design to web design to flash and motion design and finally to filmmaking.

I hope you find inspiration in his work as I do:

Moving Atoms: Making The World's Smallest Movie

A cool film from IBM on making the World's Smallest Movie:  A Boy And His Atom

Filmmaking at the atomic level is an novel idea, and I think the story behind the film is more interesting than the film itself.  Enjoy:

Audi taks a page from the show Top Gear in their latest viral video of two duelling RS 4 Avants shooting each other with paintballs.

Who doesn't want an Audi with a 50 cal paintball gun mounted on the front?
