    Client: Snickers

    Location: Root Studios, New York

    Length of Shoot: Two days pre-light, storyboarding. One day flying over my snowy home state of Colorado. One day in studio. One day flying back over my snowy home state of Colorado.

    Each year, Snickers buys the back cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue. For this year’s ad we fitted a Snickers bar with a bikini. We also created a :15 spot featuring candy bars walking a miniature catwalk. An enjoyable collaboration with a great creative team from BBDO NY and talented stylist Marie-Yan Morvan. Sometimes my job is really fun.

    Length of Shoot: 1.5 Caffeine fueled days

    We photographed a Drunk History Season 6 diorama for OOH placement in LA and NY. Always fun working for a great client. Also, kudos to the talented art department on this one. We just took the picture. Adam retouched it. Stacking back to back LA shoots made The Nomad Hotel feel a bit like home. Thanks Nomad for the endless supply of Bacci and espresso.

    Length of Shoot: Pre-Light, Two days

    Hornitos Tequila has a new bottle. We worked with the team at Turner Duckworth to help launch it. Over a few days in studio we created a number of still assets for print ads along with motion assets for TV spots. I enjoyed working with the robot whisperers at Motorized Precision. Special kudos to Arianne for staying on top of the complicated matrix and Alex at blinklab for finishing the post production in less than six weeks. Nice to see the tear sheet show up in the mail on the back of Rolling Stone and the spots in heavy rotation on the NBA playoffs as the Warriors roll through the playoffs.

    We had so much fun shooting with WIRED Magazine that we completely forgot to take any BTS pics. Here’s a look at some proofs on the production table. Our stylist Arianne knocked it out of the park on this one.

    Length of Shoot: Three days

    I worked together with Dustin Smith of Smith & Co to direct a 90 second stop motion spot for Future Advisor. Everything in this project was shot practically. I'm really proud of the look and feel of the end product. I'm less proud of our behind the scenes photography.

    We created launch imagery for Vejo; Stills and stop motion GIFs. It was great being part of the creative development. Apparently we were working so hard we literally have no behind the scenes imagery.

    Two years in deep space will subject the body to unprecedented stresses. Scientists are probing the secrets to survival. We spent a couple of days on Mars thinking about the challenges that we'd face if something went wrong and we were faced with a medical emergency.

    Length of Shoot: A number of days

    I worked with Dustin Smith of Smith & Co to direct five social media spots for SoFi. In each of the spots our career coach helps us to avoid some common social media pitfalls. Career advice from a financial services firm. It took us a while to find the perfect chairs but we got there. At the end of the day, Dustin and I are not as mean as we look. This one was a blast.

    I split a family vacation to Colorado in half to visit Los Angeles to collaborate with a talented production company and crew on still and motion assets for Walmart. We timed the production to coincide with record breaking heat. It was 113 degrees when I landed in LA. Wow. After we decided which light meter to use, things went pretty smoothly.

    Location: San Francisco, Gilroy, San Francisco, CA

    Length of Shoot: 2 (LONG) Days

    We shot Uber's Summer 2018 "Move Forward" OOH campaign over 48 hours or so in Northern California. Let's just say that temperatures varied greatly from location to location. It took one of the all time best crews from Client to Producer to Props to Wardrobe to Makeup to Talent to Assistants to Drivers to Amusement Park Management to SFPD to make it happen. The successful production wrapped day two, on time, at 4AM. Only casualty: one dead grip truck battery.

    We spent two enjoyable days with a great client creating assets for the launch of June's new oven. Despite being so sick I could only whisper, thanks to a fantastic crew, everything went swimmingly. I will never drink peppermint tea again.

    Earlier this spring we enjoyed helping create Peet's Coffee Summer Campaign 2018. The resulting still and motion assets are being utilized for OOH, Retail and web. It makes for some fun electronic billboard spotting while being stuck in Bay Area traffic. The motion assets are also being utilized for projected "billboards" on the sides of buildings in San Francisco. Below is the only known video of said projected "billboard".

    Color Genomics has developed an at home test that tests for cancer. Their innovative test also identifies serious hereditary conditions such as high cholesterol giving patients a better idea of their chances of falling ill in the future. We made it pretty for Color and Brian came back for his plant.

    Recently we created a set of still and motion assets to illustrate another story by Baxter Holmes for ESPN The Magazine. Fresh off a James Beard award for last year's PBJ story, Baxter turns his attention to wine. The NBA's Secret Wine Society exposes the new love affair between NBA stars and the gilded grape. Our production had a great crew, a magic table, solid dolly work, one failed concept, shockingly few behind the scenes photos, and some really great wine.
