Creative local companies doing cool work and making great videos along the way. Damn, we love it. Below are a couple of such videos made by a pair of local companies.
First up: C&I Studios. The whole video has interesting information about the company and the people behind it, but our favorite portion is the first 2:10 or so. It includes some breathtaking shots of Fort Lauderdale, and generally makes this blogger feel good inside. Check it:
Also, C&I Studios is throwing a grand opening party for their new location this Saturday during the FAT Village Artwalk. C&I is in the same space that formerly housed the Collide Factory (541 N.W. 1st Ave.). The bands Kids and Civilian (some familiar Collide Factory faces) are scheduled to perform, along with free beer, swimwear fashion show, live art, photography, free admission. Sounds amazing.
Check out C&I’s webpage for additional cool stuff.
We like the preceding video for two reasons: First, the challenge is a great idea. Obviously many of us Ft. Lauderdale residents are busy, but this calls for us to take just two hours: one hour to do something for yourself that you would not normally do, and one hour to do something for somebody else. Very cool. Even this blogger can find two hours. We will let you know how it turns out. The second reason we like this video is because it looks so cool. Gage Couch, co-founder of Cadence, described that he did the illustration in one shot, and then obviously sped it up.
Keep an eye on these two local companies. It seems like they both have very creative people doing innovative things, and that is good for all of us.
