Adobe is raffling off Creative Cloud licenses and we will have other surprise raffles, as well. First 120 guests to arrive get an Adobe goodie bag, as well.

Tristan Stoch of Cineastas created this beautifully shot profile of athlete-turned-creator Mike Friton:
Mike Friton is a freelance shoemaker, weaver, paper sculptor and innovator with over 30 years of experience at Nike. His innovations are responsible for many elements of athletic footwear that people wear today. Each of his crafts informs one another and he is constantly exploring the fringes of his field. Mike’s work is a great example of how non-traditional methods of exploring one’s craft can lead to unique end results.

- The Annoying Orange crew ditched Avid & chose an all-Adobe workflow, as you can hear them describe in the clip below. (Photoshop integration & no transcoding of RED footage were key.) “I’m happier than a talking piece of fruit with a weird mouth,” says Premiere PM Al Mooney. “And that is HAPPY, obviously.” Check it out:
