Raymond Strazdas Launches New Brand


I am beyond excited to officially launch my new branding! After months of planning a grand redesign for my social media channels, the launch day is finally here!

Check out my new assets and new look in action! 

Profile Pictures.


 The star of the show.

Profile pictures are usually the first impression you leave on someone. With a deep love for video games (especially Nintendo) and all things tech, I decided to reflect that passion on all of my profiles with this new photo. Not to mention, it’s red...and I love the color red!

Header Imaging.


Having a unique look doesn’t just stop at your profile picture. Cover photos are just as important. My new cover photo introduces a fun color scheme that just “pops”!



Video thumbnails will also be getting a fresh new look. These thumbnails now incorporate a unique vibe that will automatically make new and current viewers understand what makes Raymond standout, at a glance.

New Branding in Action.


 And voilå! The new branding is live! Let me know what you think of it!


Nintendo #SwitchinItUp Collab Announcement

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! 

Lenny & Larry's Christmas Adventure!

It has become somewhat of a yearly tradition. The Christmas video. Every year I tend to produce a short film that revolves around celebrating Christmas and being festive. This year is no different. Get ready for Lenny and Larry's Christmas Adventure! This film, produced at YouTube Space New York, follows the story of the grandchildren of Ebenezer Scrooge who need a miracle to save their theatre from bankruptcy. After many failed attempts, they are visited by the same three beings their grandfather was enlightened by. The two brothers attempt to find the perfect person to complete their play and create the musical play of a lifetime. Can they do it in time for Christmas?

Well, I am happy to announce you can find out right now! Despite some technical difficulties during post production, the film is now complete! You can watch it now on my YouTube channel or embedded above. This film was shot in collaboration with Universal for their awesome new movie SING! What a fun shoot this was! I hope everyone has a phenomenal holiday season and a VERY Merry Christmas! We are ending 2016 on a high note and I have a feeling 2017 is going to be full of epic new adventures!

Until next time!
