Margaret Lampert asked us to produce a TARGET shoot for her in the suburbs of NJ.
Lots of fun with the kids in a school for two days.
As usual, Margaret was great to work with and the the kids just loved her.
This was our first time working with Rob Howard, turns out he is a fellow Canadian and super nice guy.
Best part of this production was not really the shoot, but being able to hang with the Creative Director Melissa Evans at the opening night game with the SF Giants. It was an amazing night and there’s nothing like sitting 2 rows behind the home team dugout. Cold beers, hotdogs and a great game.
This was my first time working with Travis the AB at mcgarrybowen, really great guy.
The shoot of course was fun thanks to all the great personalities on set.
Melissa, you ROCK girl!
The location we used for this shoot was perfect, the owners of the house were incredible. Sometimes you meet people on location that you feel like you’ve known before.
Then there was the complete professionalism of the animal handlers from Studio Animal Services and the “Star” (Chopper) who hit his mark every time.
The photo crew arrived and went to work to get the shot done on time and on budget.
The crew from Fallon feel like old friends and John Offenbach did it again (that’s why Fallon keeps coming back).
How can a producer ask for more?
We traveled to Pittsburgh with mcgarrybowen and the always amazing Jamie Applebaum to spend 4 days shooting in various communities. This was our first project with the very talented Richard Schultz and we became fast friends. Nothing like working with true professionals. Of course it did not hurt to have an incredible creative Director, Melissa Evans, with us.
Doug Menuez and Publicis traveled to Canada to shoot alongside a TV Production on a soundstage in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Patti Zarkin from Publicis who we have worked with forever and admire tremendously, asked us to produce this print campaign for Homewood Suites. Of course Vancouver is my hometown, and it was nice to see family after the shoot.
We once again hit the road with Droga5 for Miami. This time shooting images for a new PUMA Evo Speed campaign with Scott Pommier. This was the first part of the project that would see us also traveling to Europe for the final TV and Print shoot later in the month. We mostly covered plates and backgrounds for all the various assets that Droga5 needed.
Droga5 and Cliff Lewis continue to rely on us for expert production services and we love working with this HOT HOT HOT agency.
We enjoyed pulling together a quick 2 day shoot with Jurgen Berderow before the holidays arrived. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our back office crew handling the permitting and road closures. Our crew jumped in and put holds on the dates for the shoot even before the job was awarded because we new that there would be a limited number of available dates downtown during the holidays. Jurgen’s pictures turned out great.
