Today I took photos on Lake Austin of Aric Denton and friends teaching children the art of wakeboarding at a summer camp they do every week. There were a lot of skiers out there too, so can’t leave them out. I wanted to share some of the shots I captured. I go back tomorrow to photograph the kids I wasn’t able to see ski earlier this afternoon.

Tucked in a neighborhood just off Lamar sits a vacant lot that has been captured by some of the area’s finest graffiti artists. These colorful writers have turned this jungle of cement and grass into a landmark that is worth exploring. My brother and I got some footage and I wanted to share some of the photos with you. The images tell their own story.
The most diabolical duo yet to grace Earth with its presence. It was inevitable that someone would capture their lightning-esque power on camera, and it just so happened to be Something Clever.
Brüt Force earned its birthright in Denton, Texas as Ben Fisseler and Salem Abukhalil joined forces eventually relocating in Austin. They now have an EP out for the public ear on vinyl.
This particular song is called “Arab Standards” and took place at Frank in downtown Austin at 4th and Colorado. Expect more videos from Brüt Force.
Something Clever Productions recently finished Volente Beach’s two annual TV Spots for the summer season. They are each 15 seconds and will bookend nighttime commercial runs – one for their water park and one displaying their bar/restaurant. Volente Beach is located on the North side of Lake Travis and was built for all ages – especially children. As for the commercials, we provided and cut the footage, Time Warner collaborated with a couple companies to record voice overs and graphics.
My brother and I found an abandoned factory just south of downtown in the King William District. In fact, it sits southbound along the river walk as you’re passing the popular Blue Star Brewery. Of course we couldn’t help but question what the view was like from the top of this thing.
We got a great deal of footage to be archived and we now know of an incredible location for future film projects. As I explored the grimy ruins of the ghost factory, I imagined a group of misfit children using this as their “base”, alerting the others as “intruders” draw near. It’s their fortress, they are the kings of this industrial castle.
Expect an urban exploration video at the end of summer. Below is a bird thing we ran into along the river walk. It alerted us as we passed asking for help. “What is it” you ask? I asked him and even he wasn’t entirely sure.
