Definitely Do Not Push This Button

A close group of friends made this video a while back, Star Wipe Films This was a T-mobile ad contest for the new (at the time) G1 phone. The winning entry was to be used in a national ad campaign from what I understand. Though they didn’t win, I still love the product. I personally was, unfortunately, not part of this particular video.

Every video put out by this group is always so entertaining and so well made. Granted, I am a member but that does not affect my judgement. I have been part of numerous other groups and projects over the years, and can always take a step back and admit when they’re crappy (as they usually are). But Star Wipers just seem to have the magical combination of creativity, know-how, and attitude (plus a bit of Cyborg actors).

Start with a great story, add in knowledge of your gear and the filming process, a generous portion of great direction, and then top it off with a dollop bringing-it-all-together. Consistently great work!

A linux web hosting administrator, a professional production sound man, and a renegade cop without nothing left to lose.... Ok, that last part is made up. In all seriousness, my passion in life is to help people; whether that be with help running their sites or with their productions. The name 'Boom Shadow' was given to me by a great group of filmmakers called Star Wipe Films. back in 2005 and has been with me since. I hope my site is helpful to you, and if there's something you need, drop me a line!
