Ray Meets Moto in Z2 Force Edition Commercial



Life is full of unexpected twists and turns and sometimes it takes you to places you would never expect to be. That is exactly what happened to me this past week. Motorola unexpectedly invited me to their press event in New York City to film an official commercial for their brand new Moto Z2 Force Edition flagship smartphone! This ad was all about highlighting key features of the new phone and Moto Mods at the Hello Moto World press event.  The shatterproof screen of the Z2 Force, new Gamepad and 360 Camera mod were all prominently showcased in uniquely designed event spaces which we walked through during the spot.  You can check out the video we created above or you may just end up catch it running on your favorite social media channel!

Until next time,

YouTube NextUp Class of 2017 is OFFICIAL!



I've kept this surprise for way longer then anything else! Today, I am incredibly excited to finally announce that I will be a part of the YouTube NextUp Class of 2017! If you don't know what NextUp is basically this is where very few select creators (who YouTube believes are NextUp) get hand picked to be a part of a prestigious week-long program!  I am one of only 20 who were selected for this so I am beyond excited, humbled and hyped!  You guys made all of this possible and now it's time to take things to the next level!

Nintendo #SwitchinItUp Collab!



Ever want to be a part of a video? Well, here is YOUR chance!


 Now that the Nintendo Switch has launched and a lot of people have their hands on it, I figured this would be the perfect time for a collaboration project!

Whether you have a Switch or not, I want to know where YOU are currently, or planning to, Switch It Up!  An example of a line you could say is "Hi, my name is Jim and I am Switching It Up in Albuquerque, New Mexico".  Obviously you would change it up to your name and location.  My only recommendation for this would be to turn your phone sideways so you record in widescreen.  Other than that, it is fair game!  It is super easy and takes less than 10 seconds.  I hope you are able to join in this exciting project that I am planning to launch in early to mid-April!

 Please send your videos to @raystrazdas on any social media site or via email to raymond.strazdas@stingrayfilms.com!

Until next time,

Nintendo Switch Hands On Preview Event



We are only a little over two weeks into the new year and 2017 shows no signs of slowing down!  Hot off of the heels of an incredible trip to Las Vegas for CES, Nintendo has invited me to get a glimpse of their latest console the Switch! Being a huge Nintendo fan, this was such an honor. The company is known to always try new things to push forward so new Nintendo consoles always exciting.


During my time at the event, I had the unique opportunity to go hands on with some of the most anticipated titles including Sonic Mania, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Surprisingly, during gameplay the Switch felt extremely solid and very well built despite it's thin and light profile. The new Joy Con controllers were very comfortable to use. If you are looking to see the Nintendo Switch in action...look no further then videos on my channel! I did my absolute best to capture anything and everything that I could. Enjoy photos and videos from the event right here in this post!

Until next time,
