The Federal Reserve Board announced today that a redesigned $100 bill will enter circulation on October 8th, 2013. The new note was unveiled in 2010 and includes a number of new security features, including a blue 3D security ribbon and a disappearing Liberty Bell inside an orange inkwell that the Federal Reserve says is more difficult for counterfeiters to replicate. The Fed says that introduction of the new note was postponed from its original February 2011 circulation target due to an “unexpected production delay.”

When I design custom websites that require a lot more functionality than the typical brochure-type website… I put a team in place to work with me to make sure every part of the process runs smoothly. I just watched this amazing nasa video reenactment in stunning 3D and I resonated with the guy that silently prayed that his teams contribution to the project [the parachute] would open.

I captured and edited this mini commercial video for Ratna Ling Retreat Centers. The true story as it happened, was that I stayed here for a personal retreat that I found on living social. What I experienced was completely mismatched from what they advertised on their website. The experience was surprisingly MUCH MORE AMAZING! The accommodations alone being so lush and extravagant was something I wished their website had for me to experience prior to visiting. Naturally I approached Ratna Ling with the idea of shooting a mini-commercial that would give future visitors a sense of what Ratna Ling looks and feels like. It also helps them market to larger retreat groups and businesses. I got to incorporate my passion of photography into the video as well as some beautiful light paintings I did on the property with long exposure photography and flashlights. Enjoy!
