Trace – Action Sports Video for POP Display

Trace is an action sports motion tracking device.  It collects data about the user and then displays that data in an iPhone app and overlays stats on their video.  Mixtus has been working with Trace over the past few months on many different projects.   One of these projects was a motion graphics video that is being displayed in surf/skate store across the US.

Behold the Beholder

Here at mixtus we just  got in this new piece of gear called the beholder MS1.  It is a small handheld gimbal similar to gimbals that you would find on a drone.  We are currently testing it out with the SONY RX100iv and we are really impressed.  This is a great tool for producing really smooth and professional looking video.

Here is a quick test of the Beholder while in Arizona.  It is pretty easy to control.

We picked this up from a really cool company in LA called owldolly.

Bouchercon 2014 Awards 3D Printed

A 3D Printed model produced by mixtus was used to construct the Bouchercon 2014 awards.  These awards will make into the hands of amazing authors like Stephen King.  It was great to work with my friend Sayer Danforth to help produce it.  I can only take a little bit of credit for the digital side of this project.  It was great to see how nice the final awards came out.  Congrats Sayer.
