Hurlbut Visuals Mission Statement
Hurlbut Visuals was created by Lydia and Shane Hurlbut, ASC to educate and inspire one filmmaker at a time. It began as a way for Shane to share his many years of experience as a filmmaker, his pioneering spirit with new cutting-edge technologies and practical product knowledge on both commercial and feature films. Through the creation of original content, Shane and the Elite Team test new products and experiment with innovative techniques, which they share with the Hurlbut Visuals readership in blog entries in a way that is both engaging and informative. The goal is to ignite the passion, creative ideas and dreams of the bloggers with more efficient, environmentally and economically responsible technology.
From the first blog entry in 2009, Shane, Lydia and the Elite Team began a dialogue with their audience that continues to this day. Initially through emails and then through blog comments, the conversation has expanded to include people from as far away as Iceland and spanning to Europe, Central America and South Africa. The Hurlbut Visuals audience is made up of a myriad of people from around the globe who have a thirst for knowledge and information related to filmmaking. For those where film school is not available, Hurlbut Visuals has become the go to resource with the latest technology and proven techniques flowing freely to all who seek it.

Welcome to the HurlBlog 2011! We have given our blog a redesign to make navigation faster and easier. The Blog will be continually evolving over the course of the year to not only bring the education posts that you have come to expect from Shane Hurlbut, ASC and our guest blog experts, but new additions such as interviews, contests featuring your work with the winner having the opportunity to spend time with Shane and the Elite Team on the set, and an expanded internship program just to name a few. We look forward to hearing about about what topics you would like covered.
The new changes and additions have been made possible by sponsor money from companies that have championed our cause of inspiring and educating one filmmaker at a time. We are only accepting sponsorships from companies that we have a relationship with and whose products Shane and the Elite Team have used extensively on set. All of the sponsor money goes right back into the services that we offer you. As always, all of the content on the Hurlbut Visuals website is the opinion of the authors and is meant for the sole purpose of educating filmmakers.
We hope that you use and enjoy the expanded services that we are offering. This is going to be a very exciting year and want your input to continue to fuel this revolution.
Happy New Year!
