Save Gettysburg Project.

In July the Director Jeff Griffith, a good friend of Planet PrePro needed production support on a project he was working on to save Gettysburg from a developer putting a casino 1/4 mile from the battlefield.

Jeff spent the day in our NYC studio with DP James Curry and his team shooting celebs Ken Burns, Stephen Lang and Matthew Broderick. I brought my son in to see the process and meet the celebs as well as listen to the speeches given. Great day all around.

Frank Deluca from the Civil War Preservation Trust was on had all day and it was great to see and hear all the great stories associated with this amazing time in US history.

Following up the Travelers job, we stayed over and started a project for Wells Fargo with Jim Krantz in the Bay Area.

What a great time we had working with the team from Wells Fargo and our first project with Jim Krantz was a bonding experience.

Great locations (thank you Birdman, Stagling Family Vineyards and Dowling Studios), great food and great wine.

Below are 2 emails we received about the shoot.

From the homeowner:

“Hi Jane,

Barbara and I are writing to tell you of an exceptionally nice experience Barbara and I recently had on a day-long photo shoot at our home in Woodside.  The shoot was sponsored by Wells Fargo for its upcoming advertising program directed to high net worth individuals.

A few weeks back, Birdman, Inc., the site selection company called to ask if we would have our home available for one-day photo shoot sometime in the next week or two. Since our home has been photographed and featured in magazines for various events, I asked about the terms and found that it was for an upscale advertisement of Wells Fargo Bank. Since Barbara banks at Wells, and we know you, we were happy to agree.

We were warned in advance that a full crew was going to be present, but when two large moving vans, a full size mobile home and a large crew with multiple tents showed up,  we feared a media invasion  and the filming of an EPIC was certainly underway.  However, the entire day could not have been organized more professionally. We were delighted to be introduced and chatted briefly with each and every crew member, the producer , the talented photographer, the models, the child’s representative and the child’s parents, the dog groomer, even the dog–and several very nice people from Wells Fargo. They all worked non-stop, took care of our home as well as they would have their own, and left it spotless.

To send our experience over the top, at the very end of the day, Jim Krantz, the really talented photographer, was kind enough to take several photos of our pool area, of me and my first bronze, a few of which are attached.

So, hooray for Wells Fargo and their excellent choice of  talented  suppliers, vendors, consultants, creative support teams and all round good people!   All we can say, is “impressive.” Brava! Bravo! ”

And from the Client:

“Dear Richard,

Thank you so much for copying all of us on your nice note to Jane! We can’t thank you and Barbara enough for allowing us to shoot in your beautiful home. The coordination of the day and how we wrapped up at your home is truly a testament to the professionalism of our producer, Scott Davis, and his fantastic crew. On behalf of Wells Fargo, thank you very much.”

A quick trip to Northern California for Travelers Insurance in July included shooting in San Francisco and Hayard.

The main reason for going to Northern California to shoot was the cost and ease of pulling permits in the Financial District on weekends, though we heard that the City Council was considering changes to this process.  They were considering new revenue sources and a hike in charging for parking spaces on a road closure was one of the new ideas.  It would have added significant costs to the permit and would have made it less attractive to go to San Francisco in the future for this type of shoot.

The permit restrictions and cost were the reasons we decided not to shoot in Los Angeles and these new policies in San Francisco would have made it better to shoot in LA.  Fortunately the San Francisco City Council decided not to go down this road and we will be bringing more productions to the city by the bay.

The City of Hayward was great with jumping in to help with our project and arranged for the police and city crews to set up our lane closure for the scissor lift to be in the center lane on the main road.

It’s a refreshing change to be in an area that is appreciative of the benifits that an they receive from filming crews that behave themselves.

In June the New York office and the Los Angeles office came together to produce a secret project for a German Automobile Company of a car that was still under wraps.  We spent 10 days traveling around NY shooting the enviromental plates from dollies, sliders and camera cars.

Once the background plates were finished we went to Malaga, Spain to shoot the actual vehicle on a studio pad in a secure location.  The photography crew also included 2 security officers that were responsible for keeping the car from being discovered by industrial spies.

Spain was great and the food was even better.

After weeks and weeks trying to get a reply from different zoos across the west coast, we finally came to an agreement with the Los Angeles Zoo about the approach to shooting the Bears using the actual bear exhibit. (which by coinsidence actually matched the layout very closely)

The concerns the zoos had with our project were the obvious ones, upsetting the animals and introducing something foreign into the exhibit that would harm the animals.

Given the ease of post work these days, we could accomplish our project and not have to put anything in the exhibit.

Most zoos are non-profit and could use the location fee to help with their operating budget (the location fee we were offering wasn’t small), so I was surprised at the negitive response we received from many zoos that weren’t even open to discussing our project even though they say they encourage filming at their facilities.

Our other location challenge on this project was to find an actual bank that would allow us to go in on the weekend when they were closed and have the run of the facility.

Our location scout (Greg Robinson) came up with a couple of options that were actual working banks as well as some closed banks that allowed filming.  In the end the client and the photographer choose a bank in Long Beach that was best for the layouts.

And the shot with the “Piggy Bank” worked out great with new software we installed to create the HDRI 360 file for the CGI pig.

After a referral from Michael Jackson of Coast to Coast Productions, we produced this quick project for Jeff Salzer and Loctite.  We had to find an airplane with just the right kind of engine – the Rolls Royce LB211.  We came up with the  Stargazer L1011 Airborne Satellite Launch Aircraft which worked perfectly.  It was a quick in and out shoot with no problems.

Olympus PEN Shoot in Mexico City.

Mullen needed someone they could trust that could bridge the gap between still and TV, Planet PrePro was the answer. With experience in Film, TV and Print, Planet PrePro’s experience was able to help the two sides communicate and share cost on the project. Of course any chance we get to work with Dana Neibert we jump at it. This guy should be shooting film, he is cool under pressure and is always a step ahead thinking about how to make the image better.

Giles Revell needed to get specialized equipment from NY to FL for this Puma campaign with Usain Bolt. (the Beijing Olympic 100 meter champ)  Giles wanted to achieve an effect similar to the photo finish images from the Kentucky Derby –  So we assembled a crew in Miami, shipped a lot of camera equipment, set up 45 ft. of dolly track and went to town.

Shooting this project with Droga5 for PUMA was a Blast, thanks Cliff, lets do it again in Jamaica soon.
