I've been talking about it for a while and now the time is almost here. The ALL NEW FIRECHILD VIDEO is upon us! We will be taking the site offline in a few days to set up the changes. It shouldn't take too long and when we are back it will be better than ever. We have a lot in store! Let's take a look at some of the changes you will be seeing upon our return! After the jump of course! Read on!

Words simply can't express the sorrow I feel for the family members of those 12 souls. I have worked for and with the media for a number of years and, thanks to all the graphic images one see's in a newsroom, felt I had become jaded to such events. This, however, literally brought me to tears. It's honestly very difficult to sit behind my laptop and type these words. This sort of thing simply shouldn't happen.
I've always considered the movie theater to be my church. It's my cathedral and my place of peace, as I am sure it is for many others. For someone to defile that sanctuary.... I just don't have the words.
Of course, this tragedy has spawned a whole army of people jumping to point the finger of blame. These people have blamed everything from violence in hollywood, to weak gun control in the United States, to attacks on judeo-christian beliefs (no, I'm not kidding, google it). What people need to understand is that finger of blame points in one direction. It points to 24-year-old James Holmes and no one else. Period.
This is about the victims. This is about the needless loss of life. This ISN'T about a trying to make the tragedy fit into evidence for pushing your personal agenda. Let's remember what really happened that night. We movie goers are a fraternity. What happens to one of us, effects us all. We need to come together in support. There will be plenty of time to talk about all that gun control stuff later.
In short. I love you guys. We don't say that enough, ya know?

Anyway, in a previous post a few months ago I mentioned that this site was going to go through something of a change. I didn't mention what that change was going to be, and I'm not going to do that here, but I am coming to you with a question.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE?
That's right. Favorite film. Let me know. If that isn't a teaser of some of the new content coming to Firechild Video then I don't know what is.
Several months of production and we are finally ready to start rolling out the new Firechild Video. Trust me. You're going to love it.
Now get to typing them comments! Go! Do it! Oh, and while you are at it be sure to subscribe to the Firechild youtube channel so you get this new content as soon as it is released!. And now, my vote for greatest film of all time:

A very good friend of mine, Gabriel Valentin Ochoa, approached me back in November with an idea. He had been hired to shoot photographs of an alumni football game in a small South Texas town. If you know anything about Texas, you'll know that high school football is HUGE here. Anyway, after his photography duties were complete he realized that there was something much bigger and much more special going on. He decided to produce a documentary about the rivalry between these two towns and the very "David vs Goliath" atmosphere. No spoilers here! I'll just say I was VERY inspired and immediately agreed to sign on as Director.
There will be MUCH more to come soon. Just wanted to give you a little teaser.

That really hit home for me. He admitted that he has gotten bids from more talented designers, as well as much faster designers, but what made him choose me was the balance of speed and talent. I am fast enough to get their projects finished ahead of schedule, but talented enough to make those products with professional quality.

If you haven't played around with the addon yet, I highly recommend you do! You may need a basic understanding of it as we move forward through time. Just saying!

Hello friends. I'm currently traveling for work and writing this from the blogger phone app, so I will keep this short and sweet. I'm almost finished with part two of our newtons cradle physics tutorial and will have it posted as soon as I get back into town. Its taken a little longer than expected for various reasons, but mainly because I wanted to make the finished product better. I've been toying around with the physics engine a bit lately and getting some pretty exciting results. Hope to share all this with you very soon. Till then, have fun and happy blending!

What started off being a quick, simple look at the blender physics engine has now become a two part tutorial! In this first part we are going to take a look at the modeling and physics of a Newtons cradle.
SEE THE TUTORIAL AFTER THE JUMP!
