  1. What's wrong with Flipswitch Inc.? Just do that.
  2. hyp3, the MographWiki has never had a 'cream of the crop' section. It's meant to be an all inclusive directory of all things/people mograph related. Great work so far, Aromakat+company.
  3. State based salaries in the new survey are already giving more accurate sounding results. 70-75K median in NY. (only 500 responses so far)
  4. Me and silatix have meetups monthly which are announced via facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=96841632074
  5. The loins from which mograph.net sprung!
  6. If you want tor rehash old arguments Monkey, I better see your ass at the meetup tomorrow. And bring your drinking face.
  7. Also, you may not like the survey results, but a little info is better than none at all. It's just the first step, and should be read with appropriate cynicism. Who knows, in a few years we could get results in the tens of thousands.
  8. If a client used this survey to try and pay me less than what I personally consider fair I would not want to work with that client. There will always be cheapskates in this industry, just stick to your guns. I think it's a valiant effort, and the new survey is a step in the right direction. I'm making sure everyone I work with fills it out. Go Bran!
  9. Oh and I wasn't kidding about the lens flares: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfiCqYuC4W8
  10. Monkey, we've got a guy at Hornet trying to work on some kinnect hacks. Hopefully we'll have something before Motionographer becomes inundated with point cloud virtual music video antics.
  11. Resurgence of clean abstract vectors. But with a touch of three dimensionality. Oh, and even more lens flares.
  12. MTV used to farm out a LOT of its on air branding stuff to shops around the world. These shops would take on the jobs at a loss for the chance to work on such a well known and creative brand. Thus seeing MTVs logo on everyone's reels.
  13. Very interesting thread, and like many of you I have had this exact thought/conversation before (Monkey, you'll remember). For many, including myself, mograph has become a job. (albeit a great one, as monovich said) You can't keep obsessively collecting reels forever. Every now and then there's something new that shines bright, but that flame is quickly extinguished by endless copycats. I do think mograph has a lot of potential as an art form, people with great design sensibilities getting into an art world that is bereft of design sensibility would be AWESOME. I think I'd be much more interested in a forum that focused on that. New software and c4d techniqes doesn't really draw me. I don't remember if the old mograph was less technical than it is now, but it felt that way. After a while people got tired of saying 'go to creative cow.' I do miss the dozen page argument threads, ironically. Pink dogs, global warming, and rip-offs made mograph what it is. I don't think that part of it will ever come back (even with clintvideo still lurking).
  14. There are quite a few threads about monitors, I think one of them mentions a line of Dell LED's that use the same specs as the apple monitors. I'd look for those as they'll be cheaper AND have a matte finish.
