FRIDAY VIDEO THREESOME: AUGUST 2014

Friday's can sometimes be the doldrums at work. If you work in an office, you're probably sneaking in some Reddit or Youtube time (or your personal favorite time waster) in between spreadsheets and .psd's. Heck, maybe you work retail and have to do all of that on your mobile device. Maybe you're actually getting work done (bless you, hard worker). We're gonna focus on the lazy ones, though. Here are three local videos for your watching pleasure. One is about local handmade furniture makers, Pastrana Studio, another is about the UNT Short Film Club, and the final one is a video from local band Criminal Birds. Let's get to it. 


Local Makers is a new project from the creative crew of Ryan Polly, Daniel Routh and Grant Wakefield. They have another cool video up at their site featuring an interview of Clint Wilkinson of Bell and Oak. In this video, however, you can an inside view into the creative process of Julian and Katie Pastrana and their little world filled with some pretty sweet goods. They mention eventually opening up a store in the video and we hope they do. Follow their Instagram to see more shots of Pastrana Studios.

We often highlight videos from UNT short film club and there's a good reason why. We really respect all of the work they do (one of us even helped judge in their last short documentary contest last spring). This short video shows what work is like in the short film club. If you're a UNT RTVF student (or even if you're not, but have an interest in video production), give it a watch and consider joining. 

Lastly, one of our favorite bands, Criminal Birds, has a Kickstarter up to raise money for the release of a new EP and to raise some funds to tour. They're about halfway there and you can score some pretty good digs by donating. We wrote a little about them in our 3 Songs column back in January. You can read that post here. Consider donating to their Kickstarter here
