Loved how this turned out! Thanks to everyone for one awesome shoot.

We recently teamed up with LatinWorks, Visit Austin, Texas & Atomic Picnic to create a Mobley music video that highlights Austin's tourism industry. "We used a combination of projected images and motion graphics to get our messages across," says director Justin Wilson, who also served as cinematographer and editor. Visual FX artist Dave Laird created the projected animations and 3D text animations and was assisted by motion graphics artist Jonathan Poritsky. Big thanks to St. Elmo Soundstage for being the perfect place for us to work in for a few days!

It is not everyday that a person wakes dominated with the fond memory of the spring of 1985. For those of you that were present, I will let you take a moment to shudder and compose yourselves. For those that were not, please allow me the opportunity to pay tribute to an amazing artist that has forever changed this world.

It was in that spring that Prince Rogers Nelson introduced a generation of children to their first experience with multimedia. Most likely… without their parents’ permission.

Children of the 1980s were already quite well-versed with changes in technology. FM radio stations began broadcasting at higher power and in stereo versus mono. (A subtly that could only be understood while listening to Top 40 in the car and hearing your left door and right door in competition.) We were deeply in touch with music videos since 1981 and can testify to the wearing spot on the carpet in front of the wooden-framed television that brought MTV to both our eyes and ears simultaneously.

But what might become lost in translation is that our generation’s connection to the artist, Prince, came not solely from radio play and the weeks of success of the album “Purple Rain” but also from the motion picture of the same title. A film that we were never supposed to see.

Purple Rain was released in the summer of 1984 with an R rating. It was not until later in that year that the MPAA created the designation of PG-13. Our parents, feeling more comfortable taking us to the theater and dropping us off to see “Return of the Jedi”, were secretly heading off the the local mall to acquire the latest copies of motion pictures that were released to the home video market. Laserdisc, Beta or VHS, they had their pick. “Purple Rain” was dominating the home theater box office and copies were selling for $29.95. Close to $500.00 in today’s dollar.

And so it goes that during this particular spring, after waiting for our parents to leave the house, the MTV generation snuck a peek at this seductive and rebellious purple piece of history.

This juxtaposition of mediums as a cultural experience was uncharted. From the first moments, the soundtrack for “Purple Rain” dominated FM radio. Months later, the vision of the motorcycle-riding Kid donning attire no one was secure with wearing in public would land this film on the top of the video charts. We could not un-see this film.

Prince helped to expose boundaries that our generation was not yet willing to cross. Race, ethnicity, wealth, sexual orientation and status were all on the table, but not without repercussions. Were we comfortable releasing this untapped creativity knowing that we would be subject to ridicule? No. Prince gave us the freedom to do it anyways. His impact on music and culture gave courage to millions. His mainstream successes granted greater access to the talents of other artists including Culture Club, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and The Cure. No musical genre was left untouched. Punk, New Wave, Pop and Rap. He was infectious.

I can remember that awkward feeling of returning to my Junior High during the after-school hours, dressed in clothing I had no faith in, timidly walking the hallway of the gymnasium towards the poorly dressed basketball court. Washed in gelled par cans and dotted by the spinning reflections of a mirror ball, I had arrived at my first dance.

I know many of you will identify with this moment. Some of you on Facebook were even there with me on that day. We were all scared. But when the song “Let’s Go Crazy” came on the PA system, we ALL danced. The benches on the side walls and bleachers alike emptied. We danced without regard. We danced together without a thought of what divided us. We grew a little that day.

Prince gave that to us.

So today, I would like to extend not my condolences, but my thanks to Prince Rogers Nelson. From you I learned to expose my creativity with abandon. I have achieved successes in industries that were first described to me as inaccessible. I create each and every day now for a living at a company that I built with the lessons I learned from this most impressive spring.

I have never learned to dance any better since that moment. (My wife can attest to this.) But I am forever changed and for the better.

With gratitude,

Daniel Kuehm
