Square!

Square!

Loved working with Square for three days, many gags including light bulbs, snow, pizza, baby items and stop motion! 

It really did take a village to make all of the gags work so kudos to the entire art department for all of their hard work and dedication to their craft. 

 

Visa Developer Spots

Visa Developer Spots

Always so nice to work with Visa on projects! We did a series on shots at their offices over the course of a few days. 

These 30 second vignettes were to highlight Visa's developers workshops and all that Visa offers their client partners. It was such a great opportunity to see the inside of........VISA! 

Sprint Virtual World

Sprint Virtual World

Some people may find doing a green screen shoot boring but we find it fun, fun because walking around a virtual set is kind of cool! Each shot needs care because you are placing people into an environment that is not there. The talent needs to understand where they are gesturing, how close they are virtually to an object and takes time and detail to plan each shot. 

So happy to have had another fun project, with Sprint and all of the awesome work which followed in post by Ntropic! 

Wells Fargo Puzzle Pieces

Wells Fargo Puzzle Pieces

Most of us have played with puzzles and just like the Visa Mousetrap project we did, it was a ton of puzzle pieces, over 5000 pieces actually! 

This project for Wells Fargo was to aid with picking up pieces and making it fit, from education to finances or most things in life, it is a puzzle and it always feels great to solve the puzzle thanks to Wells Fargo. 

The puzzles were custom made and we had eight sets ranging from very small pieces to large ones on the end tag of the video. 

HTC M10 In LA and Joshua Tree

HTC M10 In LA and Joshua Tree

Thank you once again to HTC for having us as the creative partner to the launch of their new M10 mobile phone. 

This adventure took us first to Los Angeles where we began with a nice lifestyle editorial to showcase the M10 at the Disney Music Hall the first day and ended our second day at a beautiful home in Joshua Tree. 

As always, the crew, talent and locations were so enjoyable and really says a lot about "life on set".

Undisclosed Location and Client

Undisclosed Location and Client

This has been one of the most rewarding projects from this team that will never be shown so here is a picture of a beautiful sunrise from Southern California with the crew in the morning. 

The page is dedicated to the men and women who make these productions a success and for being the wonderful crew we call a family. 

Most people not in this industry do not actually know what it takes to make some of these projects come to life, it requires a great team that functions well together, in any situation and most of the time, at a location that is foreign to everyone because we are rarely on the same set or with the same set ups so it is always new and exciting but can also be demanding. It takes weeks or sometimes months to plan for only a day or a few days on set so to see it all come together is always a treat. 

 

Harley Davidson 360

Harley Davidson 360

Harley Davidson is a name I have admired as a motorcyclist of many years but to get the opportunity to work with them on a VR360 rigging their motorcycles. 

We had two professional stunt riders as we rode up Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway including some great canyon carving. 

This project will be displayed in a 360 dome and touring around so hope you get a chance to have a virtual ride. 

Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune

What can I say, meeting Pat Sajak on the Sony Lot in the studio was a blast. Such a wonderful time with the crew, agency and all of the talent involved to make this happen. 

I was definitely impressed with Pat Sajak, he is a gentleman and a professional. Everyone from Sony were wonderful as well, such a great set and most of us all spun the wheel. I landed on BANKRUPT!! 

Reddi Wip

Reddi Wip

We had such a fun time over at Smashbox Studios in Culver City and twenty cans of Reddi Wip! Projects are always fun when you want them to be fun, so we had FUN! Turned out to be a great television spot Reddi for the holidays. (pun intended)

The Future with Intel

The Future with Intel

This project for Intel was a lot of fun as always but so many moving parts spanning three days with at least two to three locations per day, from the airport at SFO to the Ritz Carlton downtown. 

Intel was great and gave us products to look forward to using in the future! 

HTC M9 Mobile Phone

HTC M9 Mobile Phone

It was a great privilege to work with HTC on the keynote for their newest mobile phone, the M9. The obstacles were many because of the locations moves including set up time for the crew. This project was one of the most challenging to date but in the end, everything was executed well and the cast, crew and everyone had a blast!  

Visa Mousetrap

Visa Mousetrap

We all love high speed projects, especially at over 2000 frames a second! There are few companies in the world that have such high speed camera, Vision Research is one such company with their Phantom Flex 4k so we used two of them for this project! 

Did I mention we rigged 385 live mousetraps? Yes, with cheese and 16 actuators to trigger all of the traps! Two generators and 80,000 watts of lighting as well? 

FUN!
