So... This website has been a long time coming. Even with all the amazing web building tools at our disposal today - building a decent looking site is tedious work. Especially when we've been completely slammed with work, which is both so great, and so stressful. But mostly just great.
The big, dumb thing that was holding me up from launching this site forever ago was the lack of good pictures of me and some of my main dudes. I'm always the person manning the camera so all I ever get of myself are phone selfies... Which embarrass me. Cause, even though we all are guilty of "the selfie" (otherwise how would people online even know how we look from a high flattering angle?) it's still not something I'm proud of, every time I post one on Instagram I shake my head at myself - and then shamelessly check it 10 minutes later to see how many likes it got. Usually around 15. Cause almost nobody wants to like a selfie (unless they feel bad for you). So no selfies on the Slant site... or maybe just one.
So FINALLY we hired Ashley Thalman Photography to take some photos of us in her studio in Provo. She was super great. She got us talking, doing jokes, and generally got us to be goof-guys. And the pictures turned out pretty damn nice. Spencer was super natural on-camera, like a more handsome Pringles can man, which was no s'prise. Jordan took some loosening up. It's hard to not turn steely faced when someone puts a camera in your personal bubble. It was kinda hard for me too though... It's weird. I direct people all the time to just be natural on camera but I was reminded it can be kinda tough.
So everyone. I'm super excited to expand who we work with and who we work for. There are so many amazingly talented freelancers here in Utah and beyond; I want to connect with you and make you part of what we're doing at Slant. So if you animate, act, do graphic design, film, edit, color grade, or do sound. Call or email me and lets see if we can work together.
I love you all. And as my good friend Brooks Forrester would say.
You're the best (besides Jesus).
