reel looks great. 10 of 10 would smash.
chill bro its just a website
hey can we please never say "would smash" again
sure thing fam
Has got Apple's "Don't blink" video feels to it.
I think we were both stealing from the same people ;)
Don't forget to look at the one minute mark. Fast, frenzied, and a little unsettling.
Brett you're an animal. I love it.
(For real tho that video is tight)
Video is superb. Both This Also dudes created great sites last couple weeks.
Love the portfolio video! Its loadin pretty slow for me right now.
wow! this is something!
Everyone is loving the big typography, plain design trend at the moment aren't they?
Looks good though bro, huge fan of This Also.
Big, good looking type never gets old. The title sequence from Dr. Strangelove has always been a favorite of mine. Huge, handwritten, and sets a perfect tone for the movie.
Some funky behaviors on Safari:
- When I launch the video, no way to close it back out and return to the site.
- When I view the studio and then hit the back button to return to your site, it's completely frozen and no longer scrollable.
Nice schtuff though mang...
As far as I can tell all you need to do is scroll back up? Playing the video just switches the text and background color. Works in Safari for me.
Yeah, the problem has been resolved since my comment.
You should do an AMA here.
That'd be really cool, I'd definitely love to do it!
The idea to create a video and show other videos and use esposé is....genius...
very cool - I like that there is just the intro of your "head-shot" and then another click for portfolio and thank you for not making it auto-play or I'd have had to flee~
Really nice video that support well the portfolio : perfect duration, superb rhythm !
What's the song in the video? Haven't been able to get it out of my head.
UPDATE: Found it! "Unknown Tongues" by JLin: https://open.spotify.com/track/3aCxuBdka8IuuHJMGK5BCa
I also thought about using a song named "Jimi" by Lil Silva, but had already used it in a different project. Awesome track, but I wanted to go with something that felt even more fresh and energetic—maybe even a little overwhelming.
That video looks so good!
Kinda lost at first... Hmm, everything that blinks in the video is really cool. Then I visited your Studio website to see what you guys are working one.
this is great. hope to make mine as effective to help on my terrifying job search.
Very cool demo. I like short timing trick, eyes can't catch everything and it's magnetise.
I guess I'm in the minority as I found the video and soundtrack to be somewhat annoying, causing me to bail from the site.
Looks great Brett!
Question: Did This Also recently go by another name? I swear I've come across your site before and was inspired by it, but am scratching my head as to whether or not this was the name -- in any case, thanks for the reminder and keep up the great work.
Yes—my creative partner, Brian Baker, used the name and domain as his personal inspiration blog for a long time. When we started the studio, we rebranded it as our design studio.
Not sure if your portfolio video is inspired by the recent Apple "Don't blink" video, but regardless, good work! One thing I think would have made it better - if you somehow adjusted the music in the slow part. Right now it's the same music with the same tempo.
Damn… that was great!
