Last Saturday was RAD’s Christmas party.  This year it was at The Crow Bar & Kitchen in Corona Del Mar.   The never ending food and drinks went on all night.  Everyone had a great time.  Here’s some info on the game we’ve been working on if you’re interested.  http://www.gameinformer.com/p/theorder.aspx

Rachel + Richard’s HL Video

November 19, 2013 in Featured, Misc, videography, Weddings by Kristoffer

I loved Rachel and Richard’s wedding. The whole event felt really close to the heart. From the homemade wedding cake to the do it yourself decorations, everything came together so well. It was a pleasure to capture the day for them.

Reino de Espana

July 5, 2013 in Featured, Travel, videography by Kristoffer

For Trang’s 30th birthday I took her to Spain. From the long days to the late nights, we had plenty of things to do. We split our trip between Madrid, Barcelona, and quick day trip to El Escorial. My only gripe is that i wish places were more camera friendly, I had to check in my gear more times then I had expected. Nevertheless i got to sneak a few shots :) Within our trip we were able to visit all the main spots as well as some well known restaurants.

It was a great trip that far exceeded my expectations :)

DW’s Annual Camping Trip 2012

December 17, 2012 in Featured, Misc, videography by Kristoffer

Every year my friends and I set out for our annual group camping trip. This year we stayed near Huntingon Lake in the Sierra National Forest. I’m not sure if this was the trips 10 year anniversary but it’s close.

This video was almost completely filmed with my old GoPro Hero 2 camera. Except for the timelapses and campfire shots, pretty much everything else was from that awesome camera.

Jenny & Mike’s – Wedding Highlights

September 7, 2012 in Featured, videography, Weddings by Kristoffer


 

My good friend’s Mike and Jenny got married on July 14th 2012. The wedding took place in Healdsburg California, at Soda Rock Winery. Everything came together beautifully, and I was honored to not only be in the wedding party, but also be videographer to capture the day for them. Thank you to my amazingly talented girlfriend Trang and my brother Patrick for helping my shoot the parts of the wedding I could not.

Jenny & Mike’s – Proposal Story

July 17, 2012 in Featured, videography, Weddings by Kristoffer

My good friends Mike & Jenny got married on July 14th 2012. It was a beautiful wedding, and one that I was so happy to be a part of. As a gift I created a Proposal/Love Story video for them to show at their wedding reception. Before the reception no one had seen the video (not even the bride and groom) so I was really nervous to be there while everyone watched it. Thankfully the videos response was overwhelmingly positive! I wanted to put it online for their friends and family to be able to watch again.

For the creation of this video Trang and I flew down to San Francisco to interview our friends about their relationship and have them tell the story about how he proposed. After that we reenacted the entire proposal and stopped at other various places around to S.F. to shoot filler. From that trip I was able to create this video and I’m very happy with how it came out.

Thanks for checking it out. Congratulations once again to the happy couple. They really are meant for each other :)

Japan

July 3, 2012 in Featured, Misc, Travel by Kristoffer

Japan was above and beyond anything I could have expected. I loved everything about the country. Japan’s way of life and the respect for others is remarkable. I’ve never felt safer while on travels.

This trip had us crisscrossing all over the country. Using the JR rail pass we had major stops in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nagano. Yudanaka and Kamakura. Along the way we got to meet up with friends new and old that showed us parts of Japan that we surely would have missed.

This video doesn’t show all the places we were able to go but it is a good representation of just how busy we were.

Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, was announced at E3

June 9, 2012 in 3d Animation, Misc by Kristoffer

While I was freelancing last year I was able to work on quite a few different projects.  Now that it’s been announced I can finally give a name to the title I had been working on.  It’s called…

Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse 

Although my role was minimal I was contracted by Pencil Test Studios to create in game animations for a handful of enemy AI. I very much enjoyed the animations I was able to create for this game and hope the game does well when it’s eventually released on September 25, 2012 on both the XBox 360 & PS3.

Solar Eclipse

May 20, 2012 in Featured, timelapse by Kristoffer

Caught the last half of the May 20th solar eclipse. Lost track of time and didn’t realize it had already started, but thankfully I was still able to set up two timelapses. One close up, and the other wide. Used a 4second interval & my trusted ND filter.
