And . . . ACTION!

We just wrapped a fantastic shoot for a series of tv commercials which I directed. Thank you to an AMAZING client, crew and production team for making this possible. This was my first time working with a pair of the infamous RED ONE video cameras at the same time. I wish I had deep deep pockets to pick up a couple of these amazing cameras. Stay tuned for the final TV spots. But in the meantime, check out some behind the scenes from yesterdays filming.

Thanks again for tuning in!

Thanks to everyone that tuned in on Saturday for another live blogcast from the studio! We had a smokin' good time (ha!) shooting this concept which included an all black set and a new favorite chair (refinished, repainted and re-upholstered by yours truly). A HUGE thank you Courtney Rust for rockin' the styling and Mark Doddato for the apocalyptic fog!

My dad

I recently photographed my dad and his horses for my portfolio and for a promo series that we're designing. While we were setting up the lighting gear and he positioned the horse, I snapped a handful of quick snapshots. I've learned a ton of things from my dad, like my obsession for carpentry and building my own sets. I'm very proud that I had a small town upbringing because it has made me who I am today by giving me a more realistic outlook on what's important in life.

Thanks to everyone for tuning in for yesterday's live webcam blogcast from the studio! It was a quick editorial and our talent was HILARIOUS! The studio was pumpin' out some colorful Yo Gabba Gabba tunes while Monsters Inc was keeping the talent entertained between shots. We were all thoroughly hydrated with a plethora of juice boxes to keep me and our fantastic talent going for a couple hours!
A big thank you to Amy Lauhoff O'brien for being a fantastic co-stylist on the set. Amy and I have known each other for almost 10 years and this is the was the first time we've been able to work together (mostly because she is ALWAYS booked for styling gigs). The set was made entirely out of paper (which is headed to the recycling today). We are working on several more shoots in the studio and on location so keep an eye out for another live blogcast! Thanks again!
