Over the last year I have had the opportunity to shoot some amazing tours, music videos, and now commercials. I shot 6 commercials for the Napa Valley Tourism board a week before they were hit with a huge earthquake. That was through Misfit Productions in SF, a company my friend Doug started and through an Ad agency, DOJO. DOJO has been responsible for some of my favorite commercials from Halo 2 miniatures to the original Xbox 360 commercials I loved soo much I downloaded to my Xbox just to re-watch.
Sadly those commercials still aren't our yet but some of the print work I did has been in a few magazines the last couple of months. I will be posting all the finals of those soon. Now I had the pleasure of shooting some very quick promo commercials for the Foster Farms Bowling in SF. This was a one day shoot with a very fast turn around. We shot is last week and it's already cut together. The fun thing about this project for me was working with my longtime friend Mike Wood who I've been wanting to work with for some time. We also got to shoot green screen which I haven't really done since I was in high school when I first taught myself how to.
I'm very happy with the results and it was a great shoot day!
