Client Comfort… Its How I Roll!

On a recent location trip to Texas, the subject of my success came up in conversation. I was traveling with Nikki, my right hand woman, Jack Vos, the creative director on the project, and Amy Jolliff, more commonly known as the suit. After some discussion, we all decided a video would help explain the phenomenon of my unparalleled success. Enjoy!

My First Ever Video!

October 9th, 2008

I just finished a campaign for People’s Gas and I wanted to have some fun with how the images have been used to date. The video contains a series of interviews conducted at the bus terminal on Navy Pier in Chicago. I asked my friend and art director, Cristen, to appear in the video, but after she saw the rough cuts, she threatened to sue me if I so much as mentioned her name. Oh well, without further ado, click the link!

On a recent location shoot in New York, we decided to go to dinner at a BBQ joint that show cased local musicians. A blues band was featured that night, and while watching the lead guitar player, I discovered that something was missing in my life. I can’t show my passion in the same way that the guitar player can, and that  kind of makes me sad. He looked so into what he was doing, at times I don’t think he even realized anyone was watching him. He would hit a high note, and his face scrunched up so much his wrinkles got wrinkles. He was feeling it in his toes, and you could see it in every move on his face.

Yesterday I shot an ad for a pharmacuetical company. The talent on set was supposed to be barking instructions to people off set. I was yelling and screaming instructions to the talent so loudly I startled the crew. The AD liked the shots, and the intensity of emotion the talent conveyed, but he was kind of mystified by my methods, so he asked me why I yelled so loud. I told him I was just playing guitar.
