“Memphis Jookin” street dancer, Ron Myles, talks about where he came from, how dance makes him feel, and that everything is creating. His smooth dance moves and sharp popping defy logic – the mind’s eye seeing either slow motion or fast forward, but is in fact, shot in real time.
“The funny part about this music video is that more or less, it was done on a whim. Our Producer, Wayne Han, came to us, mentioning a contest on a website called Genero (www.genero.tv) with the chance to make the official video for a band called M83. A group of us decided it was a good idea and got to work. Bear in mind, we were two weeks away from the deadline when we decided to produce this. Between myself, Wayne Han (Producer), Wyeth Taylor (Lead/Producer), Amanda Scruggs (Production Designer) and Derek Johnson (Director of Photography) we used all of our spare time and resources to put this thing together on a shoestring budget with very little time to make it happen. This was a few years ago, back in 2012. The video was received positively, making it as Finalist in the contest, but didn’t end up taking the prize. Fast forward four years, the music video has just been sitting on the website gaining a view here and there when one day I receive a message. It was from a musical artist named Thomas Pettersen, who uses the stage name Arcane Station, out of Norway. He reached out to me through Genero, exclaiming how much he enjoyed the video and offered to purchase the footage through Genero as a third party. I agreed and spent the next couple weeks re-editing the footage, creating the music video you see above. It’s kind of amazing, how what seemed like a failed project, turned out to have a second life.”

Veydra Mini Prime Lens Set – Micro 4/3rds Mount – Now available for rent at Revolution Cinema Rentals!
The MFT Veydra Mini Prime lens sets are made specifically for today’s digital cameras with smaller sensors; IE mirrorless cameras. Since these are cinema quality lenses, this means that they are of the highest quality and produce an image that you will be proud to call your own.
Veydra Mini Primes are all cine-vised. They are de-clicked; have FF and Iris gears and 80mm fronts. They smoothly integrate with all follow focus systems, either on camera or remote. They are easy to work with and change in and out quickly because each lens has the same physical dimensions, as the focus and iris gears are identically placed across the barrel.
These lenses were custom designed and built from the ground up. They are not re-housed still lenses that have been modified for cinema work. The images that are produced are of top quality. The background fall off is rich and the bokeh is round and smooth. Each lens features a 10-bladed iris that, wide open, produces nice round out-of-focus highlights, with the shapes becoming more oblong at the edges and corners of the frame, depending on your T stop.
