Just finished a month long project for German Pharmaceutical, Boeringer Ingelheim, budget of close to $1,000,000. Ladies Viagra – Who woulda thunk?

3 Ad Agencies, 10 Agency Personnel, almost 50 Talent and Extras, 22 Crew, 10 Locations, 3 Cube Trucks, 2 Motorhomes – the first adventure of the year.

Everything worked out great, and our online casting system with video made the selection of the talent seamless between the different Ad Agencies.

There was one hiccup though, one of the talent was hit by a car while bicycling the day before his shoot day (I’m told he is doing well now) we were able to bring up the casting while on location and booked his replacement from the Moho.

Lexus in Oregon

Back in September we spent a week with Jurgen Berderow shooting locations that would have been difficult and/or expensive to actually get vehicles on – for another project with Team One and Lexus. Thus is the beauty of CGI.

After working on and producing car shoots since the summer of 1982, the thing that excites me most about CGI technology is that we now have many more options for locations that in the past were just not possible.

Jurgen is a great guy and we had lots of fun with Kevin Mitchell driving all across the state. One night, after shooting on a remote section of the Oregon Coast, we stopped in a restaurant (actually a bar) ┬áthat was the only option for dinner on the way back to the hotel and had a great conversation with a local drunk. ┬áHe was surely plastered (and the uncle of the bar owner), but an interesting guy who was the first person to plot GPS coordinates across the south pole. It’s great that we don’t work in an office 9 t0 5 everyday and can meet fun and interesting people on our adventures.
