Was happy to help the 10:10 Creative, and director Steve Condon, again on filming the Davisson Brothers Band “Jesse James” music video. I was only part of the West Virginia shoot on this one, but the guys were up and down the east coast getting footage for this fun and crazy music video.
Had a great time being on this web series, Eureka Place, for the production company, Strike Anywhere. Left a sunny Philadelphia, on an 80 degree day in March, and quickly was reminded that it was still March and I should have brought a warmer jacket with me numerous times.
We bounced up and down the east coast that month working on this web series. When we were in Richmond filming, I remembered that I had worked in Richmond before. When we were in State College, I was reminded that college was more fun when you didn’t have responsibilities. And when we were standing on top a mountain looking down over a snow dusted Albany I was reminded that it still was March and freaking cold and I should have brought a warmer jacket.
But overall, I remember working with a small group of very professional guys, from all over the country, that month and I think we got some great footage.
Got to experience the Appalachian hilltop that inspired the Truth & Salvage Co. song “Appalachian Hilltop” on this music video shoot. Director, Steve Condon, and I got to spend the weekend with the band, and family, in the home town and at the family farm of band member Bill Smith that set the scene for the shoot.
The video almost didn’t come together because of a lot of rain but we set up one shot and things just kind of fell into place after that. Had a great time with some great people on this shoot. Very glad things worked out because this band and song are great. Looking forward to hearing more from Truth & Salvage Co.
Here’s the first installment of this Eureka Place web series that I was happy to be a part of by the production company, Strike Anywhere. This installment, of a couple webisodes being created for GE, was filmed in and around the Richmond, VA area.
Very cool to see the piece put together and to see how it turned out. At the time I knew we were working with some great equipment and had a cool team of people in place working together to get the shots we got.
Had a blast getting to travel to California to work on “Santa’s Gone Hollywood” with Phil Vassar again on another “the 10:10 Creative” music video for director Steve Condon and producer Steve Molineux. Think this is one of the funniest Christmas videos out there to go with a really good song.
But it was really cool getting to work in San Diego, Los Angeles and back in Philadelphia while getting to work with Phil, Debbie Dunning (Home Improvement), Pilar Lastra (Playboy Playmate) and local Philadelphia favorite of mine K.J. Linhein.
Director Steve and I got to film on the beach in San Diego, “driving” up and down Sunset Strip in Debbie’s classic convertible, in the famous Rainbow Room, and high a top Beverly Hills on a roof top pool and hot tub. With those type of locations, and with the cast we had, all we had to do was make sure we turned on the camera and we got some great shots. Of course, as usual, we did way more than that busting our butts but I think we knocked this video out of the park.
I even got to get in front of the camera myself, playing a Paparazzo, trying to get some shots of Santa and Phil palling around Hollywood.
Working on “Deer Crossing” for director Christian Grillo and producer John Michael Kent was a fun experience. Gotta give it to them for rallying the team and knocking this project out in a couple weekends.
For a shoe-string budget we had quite a large crew, a lot of locations and John Michael Kent was able to procure the services of horror film legend Doug Bradley, a.k.a Pinhead, and, of all people, famed actor Ernie Hudson on this project. A lot of hard work and long days running all over Bucks, Philadelphia and Delaware Counties in and around Philadelphia, PA, but we got the project done.
Also, had a blast getting to work with Christopher Mann and K.J. Linhein for a couple weeks. Am very glad to have worked with these guys in the past and hopefully again in the future. Both of these guys delivered and then some in their roles in this movie and in everything they do. Hopefully continued success for these guys in the future and more.
A labor of love on this one. The Last One..? movie finally has a trailer up on their youtube page. Did it all on this project. Wrote, produced, directed, acted, edited and about everything else on this project. Had a lot of great people help get this one off the ground. Still not finished getting this movie out there for everybody to enjoy it, but at least for now people can check out the trailer.
