We'll use the exact same language from this week's new Weekly Showcase (formerly PTOTW). For both video & audio, try to follow this idea - it can be any subject:
Share some of your progress since you've started uploading to iStock. Where did you start, where have you improved, where are you right now? Let's see one file from each period of your time here - beginning, middle, and current. Feel free to take the time to write and share where you'd like to be. (please don't bring examples from other members in).
Still make individual posts like we have in the past. And feel free to post more than three files. For both parties, tell us what period you were in from above - beginning, middle, or current.

Personal progress note (following the OP): when I started shooting labs, I was very influenced by the style of CSI. "Science in the dark" we used to call it. It's very dramatic. I don't think moving pictures are always about documenting reality. It's about creating something dramatic that the viewer can relate to on an emotional basis. I'd shot in this lab before in a more naturalistic way so going back and re-lighting was a lot of fun.

Evolution of Photography
Personal progress note: I've recently become a member of a studio cooperative which gives me a certain amount of shooting time every month. They have a huge white cyc wall but I've found clips with white backgrounds don't sell that well—buyers seem to prefer location shots—so I try to use the space for creating new ideas and composites like this one. Some compositing is just easier with the white.

Future Writer Guy (writer in the past imagining the future as his future self types on a computer)
Personal progress note: Another white studio shot, taken in a different studio than the Evolution of Photography clip above. Again, this was fun to shoot and composite but the series never did as well as I'd hoped. I still think it's important to stretch our work in different directions otherwise the collection will look like endless copies. Progress-wise, I feel I need to keep working to get more of the whimsical humor that's in the shoot into the clips. Nowadays, I'm trying to concentrate more on the actors and less on the camera.

Here shows my first upload, my first download, and a timelapse video which I am recently working on.
sometimes I think slow and thoughtful sound goes well with frenetic images, with this track it almost feels as if the sun might rise
