I had the pleasure of being invited along on an exclusive stylized winter wedding shoot to work with top wedding vendors in Telluride, Colorado. The shoot was organized by Utterly Engaged magazine and creative director Lucia Dinh Pador, and I spent the day working with the incredible photographer Candace Cross. Our lovely model Clara from Model Team Aspen brought effortless elegance and grace to the shoot which resulted in a magnificent final product for the magazine.
Open Sky Wilderness Therapy made a big investment in updating their branding and marketing tool kit, along with a new website and brand new videos. Each of the talented therapists who work with the organization received a video profile. Most of the video was shot by my friend and colleague Scott D.W. Smith of ImageSmith Photo, while my company was responsible for assembling and color-correcting the footage in its final form, along with the creation of a custom graphics package that was both compliant and complimentary of the Open Sky branding guide.
This spot is last in a series of eight television commercials which were contracted by Durango Motor Company. It was a pleasure to work with a marketing team that was co-invested in the creative process, resulting in a fantastic winter adventure in Cascade Canyon. Thanks to our ice-climbers Matt David Cranston and Sarah Freudenberger.
Filmed on a beautiful ranch property south of Cortez, Colorado this commercial will undoubtedly tug on the heart strings. Keesee Motor Company asked me to write a script and produce a spot featuring a father and son on a fishing trip. Contrary to the modern style of packing as many shots into thirty seconds as possible, I decided to slow down the pace of the script, and instead, focus on the emotional connection between father and son and the scenic beauty of the location. We also decided to go with no music to provide a sense of peace and calm. While shooting, I captured natural sound of the environment to form the soundtrack for the spot. As in this case, sometimes less is more, and the lack of a music track, draws audience attention almost more effective than any loud music track.
