A couple of days ago, I presented with my friend Andy at SWATCA (Teachers’ convention here in Lethbridge). We put together a short how to video for teachers wanting to share with their class how to do stop motion on an iPad.
Here are the how to videos:
Perhaps the most impressive papercraft I’ve ever seen, engineer Aliaksei Zholner created a working v8 model almost completely out of paper with just a few pieces of scotch tape added to reduce friction. The engine is so tiny it fits inside the plastic container found inside a Kinder Surprise egg. In this demonstration video, Zholner shows that tiny size doesn’t interfere with the engine’s moving components and when hooked up to a steady stream of air from a balloon, the whirling motor purrs in a rhythm not unlike a real engine.
2015 has been a great year. Most excitingly, Andrea and I got engaged and will be married this year!
Some other highlights of the year include:
- travelled to Kawaii, Hawaii
- working on the reserve in Brocket, AB
- spending the best summer of my life in Waskasui, Saskatchewan
- camping at the Ness Creek Music Festival
- seeing my first NHL hockey game
- attending a Broadway play (in Edmonton)
- started training for a new job with Vivant
- Christmas vacation with my family in Medicine Hat and Andrea’s in Saskatoon
Here’s one second from every day last year (made using the One Second Everyday app).
Here’s to a very merry Christmas or whatever holiday celebration you happen to subscribe to this time of year.

Once again I have completed a year of “One Second Everyday” videos. I travelled quite a bit in 2014 and despite the occasional rocky week or four, it’s been a fantastic year.
Some highlights include:
Every day for a year I have been trying to remember to record and editing one second clips of video so that at the end of the year I could show the world what I’ve been up to for the last 365 days or so. As it turns out, I missed a couple of days close to the end and one in February but so long as that doesn’t bother you, here they are, almost every day of the year 2013 in one second increments:
One Second Everyday – from November 2013.
I’m disappointed in myself because my October One Second Everyday video is missing a day. On October 21st the city of Lethbridge had their by-election and I wanted to get some footage at the poll so I didn’t take any other earlier and then I was so wrapped up in who I would vote for that I ended up forgetting to take any video. Oh well, you’ll just have to imagine one second at the polls on the 21st.
