The real mark of spring is here: the opening day for the Detroit Tigers. It happens today, in breezy 45 degree weather, with a chance of snow showers. We commence baseball season in true Detroit fashion; it’s not for the meek. And while those Tigers will take the field at 1 EST against the Kansas City Royals, Chrome Bumper Films got to hang with a different kind of animal, a different kind of celebrity. Check out our behind the scenes footage with Schicka, the one, the only, the true star of The Hangover. Mike Tyson, Bradley Cooper – we have respect. But let’s be honest, if we were all in a room with Schicka, as we were, she’s the only one who’s allowed to move (and the right arm of her trainer). Here’s why.. Continue reading article

Obviously we’re all kind of intrigued by Google Glass. The hype and inaccessibility alone are reasons to want the new(ish) technology.

While we all love, in life, realizing that the problem we just discovered we have: there’s an app for that. Selfies are perfected with photo-editing tools like Camera+ and Instagram filters, but the real problem with the pics is the actual quality. Samsung would like to present the hardware to fix your selfie-problems: the NX Mini. What’s the big deal? Well it’s tiny (so remember to superglue the thing to your hand whilst out hitting the bottle), but it’s best feature, is that it’s a mirrorless camera. While you can see what you’re taking a picture of (yourself via the rotating screen), your photo is being taken by a spectacular little high quality lens. It’s on sale now, and starts at about $450.
