Sometimes I get so caught up in what I assume my life should be like, such as working toward building a successful business/career, that I forget to enjoy life and the people around me. I forego hanging out with family and friends because I feel I should be working harder. 

Originally I was going to skip out on this Disney trip with my friends to work some more and catch up on much needed rest. But then I reminded myself that at this very moment in time, I'm the youngest that I'll ever be. I may be tired, but I'll just be more tired as time progresses. Why wait to enjoy life when I can enjoy the present?

I was tired the next day, but it was worth every minute.Here's to hanging out with my friends more and not worrying too much over what will happen tomorrow.

Parallax Effect by john cheng

Curious on how to create motion in still photographs? London-based artist, Joe Fellows does a quick walk through of the basic principles of creating a parallax effect using still photographs. All you need is working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.


Learn how to create motion in still photographs, a technique made popular in the film The Kid Stays In The Picture. In the tutorial above, Joe Fellows shows us how he's able to bring photos to life using the parallax effect with Photoshop and After Effects.


Here is the final animation as well as a video Fellows brought to life for the World Wildlife Fund.

This Parallax animation was created for a tutorial and interview for The Creators Project.

By manipulating still photos from the WWF archive we created these stunning slow motion shots. We have created a stand alone film by combining the 'parallax' shots from 2 existing films produced by AD Hoc Films for WWF.
