New Raygun Website

After several weeks (or was it months?) of working on a new website, I finally launched it at 12:01am.

There's some new work, there's some old work, and I'm still tracking down many recent projects. (we all know how that goes…)

I decided to use Vimeo to host the work and Squarespace 7 to build the site. Now… organizing, uploading, and relinking 150+ projects was quite a daunting task, but well worth it. I love how easy Vimeo and SS work together.

Big shout out to everyone who helped me and gave me advice along the way, especially Matt Odom.

Now, I'll start working on the next site… :-)

Enjoy!

- Eric

    An Afternoon with MōVI

    We had the opportunity to play around with the MōVI camera stabilizer for a couple of days.
    The images in this video were filmed at Old Fourth Ward Park in Atlanta, GA over the course of an hour.

    We will be posting more camera tests in the next couple of days.

    Tiny Collective Interview with Eric De Fino

    I'm humbled and honored to be interviewed by Tiny Collective about my photography, specifically my mobile photography. Thanks to all the members, especially to Wes Quarels (@WesQ) for conducting the interview.
    Here's a description of TC is all about:
    Tiny Collective is a mobilephotography group with contributing members from Atlanta, New York City, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Portland and somewhere in Australia
    Through a common interest in the innovation of mobilephotography and a desire to build a combined portfolio independent from social media sharing sites, the collective is continually developing new work through its mission to propel and explore the new mobile era of the digital arts.

    Raygun's Soon-To-Be-Awesome Facebook Page!

    Hi Everyone!

    In honor of April 4 (otherwise known as the 95th day of this year), we created a shiny new page on The Facebook. We would greatly appreciate if you took five seconds from your crazy busy day and hit the little "Like" button!

    You can click --> here <-- to go directly to the page.

    Other great things that happened on this day include Francis Drake being knighted for completing a circumnavigation of the world (1581), Los Angeles finally incorporated as a City (1850), and our personal favorite, the Communist Party of Panama was founded (1930).

    See? We're teaching you history and stuff.

    Thank you in advance! XO

    Updates from RED on the EPIC

    It's about to get interesting. From Jim and Jarred at RED Digital:
    "Jarred and I will be at IBC to show the latest EPIC-X prototype. While the proto we show is not a fully functioning unit (still need ASIC to come off the presses and work), we will be showing other stuff that does work. I think that anyone that finds us in Amsterdam will be blown away with "the stuff in the case" we have with us. The proto is the final one. It is representative of what we will be shipping. We are very proud of where we are and what the future looks like. There is not anything ever produced that will do what this camera will do, let alone in the package we will show. The modularity of our program is just one of the things that we think will change the industry. You won't have to buy a new camera every time we improve one aspect of the system. RED was started to revolutionize how this industry works. EPIC-X is the penultimate example of what we started out to accomplish."
