The Camera

This film is quiescent, peaceful, uncluttered, beautifully shot, and gorgeously edited.  Plus, it’s a great story. Entirely shot within a budget 50 dollars (including props).

The Camera (short film / original score) from Peter Lewis on Vimeo.

“… this is my first film. I made it because I love all the different aspects of moviemaking, because I was tired of my fear of failure, and because I wanted to see what would happen if I just finished one.” – Peter Lewis

He speaks of overcoming his fear of failure in this interview. His wisdom and words are inspiring.


TV Shame. Where’s Your Telly?

I’ve never fathomed the need to hide a television — but I also know that there are tons of people who will go to great lengths to hide, disguise and camouflage their boobtubes. Hiding the television can be more social, and according to some better interior design.

Apartment Therepy has an innovative list of products to help you – ut.hum. shhhh…hide. your. telly.

If you want to reserve your box-eye in safe harbor until your favorite show, we can help install, hang and order these products (including the TV’s).  

If you have television shame, call redbpower . We can put your set in it’s place.  Your audio, receivers, and screens will be in the shadows.

Best of all, we work with complete confidentiality. In fact, we won’t whisper to a soul about the skeleton in the cupboard.

 Here is Apartment Therepy’s list of some new products to hide televisions.  

1 Art Lift from Media Decor uses your own original art to hide your TV and then expose it with the aid of a remote control. Three levels of precision and silence available — at three different price points.
2 Flash Light TV by Denis Santachiara — a 23″ TV and DVD player hidden in a lamp. Available from Roche Bobois.
3 Trendir | Integrated Cabinet Door TV by Luxurite — depending on the cabinet door finish the TV can be completely invisible when off.
4 IKEA BESTA TV storage combo with sliding doors — tons of storage and finish options for hiding your television.
5 Aqua Decor Series by Media Decor — a mirror with less reflectivity but the TV is invisible when turned off.

Do you hide your TV, yes or no?

Old Barn Door

Don’t you just love this old barn  door? Lyndsay, the owner, scoured ebay for weeks for a barn door to lead into the bathroom, and ended up finding one in the sheep run of Fitzhugh’s family’s farm in NH. After giving it some major TLC it found a new purpose. More, it looks completely at home. 

I hope this gives you some Green Inspiration. Even though we can’t officially help with the door , we can help with the electrical behind it like the lighting, the sound, and the audio.

Do you have creative designs?  Feel free to share. I would love to see!

Create a Chic Bud Vase Out of an Old Light Bulb

We love ideas on how to reuse old tech especially old light bulbs. It’s the marriage of our values, our creativity, and our business. Upcycling old electrical products. Perfect.

This project from ReadyMade is an uncommon, fantastic use for the old light bulb, a bud vase.  This project is inexpensive and trendy.  Using an old incandescent light bulb and 2 feet of 3/32-inch aluminum welding rod, Tim Park, has created a modern looking bud vase.

The project requires a few simple tools, small needle-nose pliers, 1/4-inch Allen wrench, a small hammer, leather work gloves, and safety glasses. The  cost of the materials for this project: $5.

We love this project. And, we would love to see your completed projects – anything that reuses old light bulbs. Send us your pictures and links!
