Stepping slightly outside of our wheelhouse to create this high energy performance music video for Pacific Skyline.
Los Angeles based lamp maker, Ryan Rogers, creates beautiful brass lighting fixtures. The aim of this short piece is to show a bit of the process, tools and techniques that he uses when crafting a lamp, to get a glimpse of his studio in DTLA and his dog, Wylie, and to highlight the fact that all of the lamps are hand built by Ryan, himself-- and to do it in a fun, stylized manner.
A quick look back at some of the many, many fascinating people we've interviewed over the years in so many places.
Our goal with this brand identity piece for Jones County Road, a grooming products company in Southern California, was to create an atmospheric piece that would evoke the smells of the various soaps, oils and lotions they offer. With names like "Woodsman", "Alpine", "Campfire", "Pacific" and "Wild" we decided a 24 hour road trip from the desert to the mountains to the beach would provide us with the visuals we needed to tell this story and conjure the mood and tone associated with the brand. Here's the 2 minute version:

You always hear stories about surfer/snowboarders who hit the mountains in the morning and the ocean in the evening, or vice versa. And having access to such diverse topography in a relatively small area is a major bonus to living or working in Southern California. This week I finally got to check that off my list, but for good measure we also through in a desert shoot in Palm Springs. In less than 24 hours we shot in hyper-urban downtown Los Angeles, arid Palm Springs desert, snowy alpine forest in Lake Arrowhead and warm, sunny Venice Beach. Amazing. Helluva whirlwind, but well worth it. Especially with a sweet Australian Cattle Dog (aka Blue Heeler) along for the ride. We'll be rolling out the awesome footage we captured in three forthcoming projects for Jones County Road

Had an incredible 4 day shoot in Key West going snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, dancing, dining, historical touring, sight-seeing and capturing beautiful images. The 10 or so hours of great video we shot will be edited down to 4 x 1min episodes for the Florida Keys Tourism Board and OUT Magazine. They will go live in January and will be linked to from this blog.
We're now shooting primarily on the Canon C100 Mark II. This cinema camera travels well, performs great in low light, captures beautiful full-frame slow motion and will give our clients the rich, professional image quality they expect. New lenses, mini-gimbal and Ronin (not pictured) to round out the gear upgrade.
Had a blast down in Costa Rica for a friend's birthday 4-wheelin, waterfallin', swimmin' and paddleboardin'! Shot entirely on the GoPro Hero4 Silver.
We're not a company that shies away from sometimes controversial issues. Whole home, short-term rental regulation is a big deal in New Orleans right now. Here's one side of the story.
