Recently I was on this kids-science show called Newton, on the national Norwegian television channel NRK.
If you are wondering why the heck I was on a science show for kids, then I’ll have to tell you that I in addition to be a 3D and motion graphics guy I’m also a up and coming skateboarder. Therefor I got a phone call from NRK, and they asked if I’d like to talk a little about bearings and why that are so important for us skateboarders. This was my first TV experience so I couldn’t say no to that.
Me on the TV screen.
Me and Selda behind the scenes.
Here’s the link to the episode: http://tv.nrk.no/serie/newton/dmpv74000413/03-02-2013
Another fun fact is that Selda Ekiz, the show host, was recently voted for ”Norways second sexiest” by the readers of the magazine ”Mann”, thats rad!
This wasn’t the most relevant blog-post according to what I usually post, but hey! Since it’s my first time on television i tough I’d share it.
I only wanna share with You that I just purchased the Elemets 3D plugin for After Effects by VideoCopilot, and I can’t wait to dig into it.
Elements 3D is a very powerful plugin that allows you to import 3D objects directly into After Effects for instant use, no rendertime, just Rock’n Roll! I first of all purchased it because of a project I’m working on that I hope to finish over christmas, but I’m sure I will be using this a lot in My future projects too.
If You aren’t familiar with VideoCopilot I would absolutely recommend checking that out. They are having ”Cyberweek” now, that means you got 25% off all their products, that can be a lot of money saved if You’re thinking of buying some of their products.
Thats it for this time.
This weeks focus at school is ”self-promotation”, we are supposed to make websites for promoting ourselves. Since I already have a website(the one you’re on right now), I’m done with this weeks tasks, but I have done some adjustments and changes to the site. As you can see over to the right here I’we placed some social widgets, don’t forget to click in and ”Like”, ”Follow” and ”Subscribe”.
I’we also posted a ”new” video under portefolio. The video isn’t quite new, it was made last fall but I haven’t uploaded it until now. So have a look, and tell me what you think! www.joakimulseth.com/kinetictypo
I will also make some other minor changes during the week, before the presentation of the website in class on friday, so stay updated!
