Last December... (and no i don't mean December 2006) I mean the LAST LAST one... like 2005. We did our shoot for History of America here in Kansas City, Missouri. Now, you might be asking why i'm telling you a story from that long ago? Because I CAN! No really, because we did a 10 day shoot, and now are in the process of finishing our short(long) film. Either way, here is some screen grabs of what our 'take' sign would often say. It changed a few times a day and it started out actually being correct in the beginning of the shoot, but by the end... as you can tell... it was all over the place hehe.. here is like..5 or 6 from like 1000 hehe.

"Animation and Visual Effects and Motion Graphic Design
Ben Radatz & Tim Fisher
Meyer Hall - 6pm (Special Time!)
Ben Radatz, Jed Carter, Tim Fisher, Shaun Hamontree and Matt Fraction founded artist collective and design lab MK12 in their hometown of Kansas City, MO in YEAR. Art school fugitives, the five have carved a unique niche for MK12 in the design world, where art, commerce, film and music happily coexist.
Among its numerous in-house experimental projects, MK12 has completed broadcast and commercial design work for clients including Diesel, The Sci-Fi Channel, MTV, Cartoon Network, TNT, AXN and Coke, as well as music videos for Hot Hot Heat, Common, Funkstorung, and The Faint, the experimental films “Untitled 02: Infinity,” “4-D Softcore Sweaterporn,” “Ultra Love Ninja,” and trailers for the RESFEST film festival. In 2002, MK12 joined the directorial roster at Playa Del Rey, CA production company, The Ebeling Group. Ben and Tim will also talk about their motion graphics in the film “Stranger than Fiction”.
Characterized by a constant re-examination and development of motion, depth and juxtaposition, MK12’s unique style best lends itself to explanation visually and viscerally, with a visit to their Web site “www.mk12.com“.
ALL MGD/AVE students are invited to attend!!!!"If you are in the bay area you should try to sneak in ;)

but I think somewhere along my years of having a website (the first friedpixels went up back in 2002, archive) I have became self conscience of if i actually have an audience of 1, or that of many. I was digging through my webstats and was brought to a sad realization that I've lost many visitors.. but in light of that... have now been getting a more consistent audience.
Is this true? I know i don't ever ask this, but if you could.. tell me your experience with my site/blog in the comments.. i want to hear your story :)
here is images of stats... if they are nothing but boring.. sorry ;) they are only from 2004 to now, but you get the point.
