With so many theories and spoilers floating around regarding Game of Thrones, I decided to make this little script, which generates (made up) GoT spoilers. You can call them theories, if you prefer. The script was inspired by this tweet. :)

Not too long ago, in this very galaxy, I wrote a song about that pivotal moment in gaming where it all comes down to the final toss of the dice. In old skool Dungeons & Dragons, Save or Die was a term used for extreme situations where a character’s life depended on a single roll. Those moments can be extremely intense, and the song is a tribute to that intensity.
The video was shot on an iPhone using a mix of normal video and timelapse. Shooting it was unplanned – I was feeling distracted after a night of very little sleep, and thought I’d play around with shooting timelapse stop motion, pushing a few dice around. After watching the first clip I got the idea of turning it into something else… I toned and processed it to match the mood of the tune and added floaty lyrics for cheese (and for bonus cheese, I used avQest aka “the Diablo font”).
The images presented with this post are from a recent photo shoot, featuring local improv comedy group – NERDprov. As you might guess, these guys focus their material around topics like Harry Potter, Superheroes and video games. They needed shots for their new site and promo material, and I was honored to come take them.
The photos were shot on location at The Market Theater, home of Unexpected Productions, right behind the gum wall by Seattle’s Pike Place Market. We used the main stage for group shots, and a smaller stage out front for solo portraits. I had a ton of fun. A bunch of comedians is not what you’d call a boring client, plus it’s not every day I get to take pictures of people in costume.
If you get the chance, you should go see NERDprov do their thing (check their site for upcoming shows). Also, if you’re the organizer of a con or other such nerdy event, NERDprov may be just the entertainment you’re looking for. Find more NERDprov on Facebook and Twitter.
More and more, I find myself photographing performers and artists. I have three more shoots lined up this week, and I couldn’t be happier for it. Not only is it fun, it’s also immensely inspiring to be around and watch other artists do their thing. The only downside, if you can call it that, is that they always leave me wanting to try what they’re doing at least once. Though I don’t know if I have the balls to do improv!
