If I had to imagine my first job with tinygiant, I would have never imagined they involved China and David Beckham in the same sentence but lo and behold, after a few weeks being signed, Veronica, Luca, and the new team headed straight to Shanghai and Shenzhen, China for our first job together! After two wonderful weeks in China, we finished an entire series featuring David Beckham for Haig Club. We created four themed videos with agency AKQA and a teaser on several different topics such as fashion, style, taste and more in the words of the popular footballer. Stay tuned for more David Beckham, but in the meantime, I leave you with our teaser for the series.
We have just returned from Vienna, Austria where Peter Eszenyi from Territory Studio and I traveled to an architecture school called Studio Lynn to teach students how to create 'Machine Vision.' After completing our work in MILES, Studio Lynn contacted us and informed us that they actually had a class that was exploring the world through the lens of a machine. How do machines perceive the world around us? Of course, this related directly to what we created for the vision of M.A.X. in MILES, so it was a match made in heaven.
Our workshop was two days long and included a start to finish demonstration on how we created scenes in MILES. This included a complete introduction to the world of 3D sensors and full demo of the Depth Kit. After we had captured our own 3D assets, we then dived into the world of post production, showing the students what they could do with these 3D assets. This included tutorials on Cinema 4D, After Effects, and more.
We were extremely honored to be apart of this workshop and look forward to seeing the students' final projects!
My first spot for the eBay/Paypal Stories of Impact series is complete! In this first spot, I profiled the amazing story of one man who sold everything he owned on eBay in order to pursue his dream of traveling the country in his van and cycling. This man is Nick Martin, and he is now the founder of one of eBay's largest online cycling stores, The Pro's Closet. Enjoy!
I returned to my home away from home to shoot one night of the prestigious concert series at the beautiful Sunset Marquis. LIVE is a summer concert series held by the pool every other friday night at the hotel. It's goal is to give back to the industry by profiling new artists through a hip, fun, and exciting night of acoustic jams. Last year, PSE completed a full montage of LIVE 2013 that profiled over 20 different artists at the event. Enjoy the video we put together for our one night out featuring Clare Reynolds, Emmanuel Jal, X Factor's Alex and Sierra, andDowntown Judy Brown!
I the road again to Boulder, Colorado and West Plains, Missouri for two films that captured the essence and importance of e-commerce giants Ebay & PayPal and how they are the de rigueur for businesses. Highlighting two such businesses THE PRO'S CLOSET in Boulder (a cyclist's go to mecca for used parts and accessories) and COUNTRYSIDE PET SUPPLY in West Plains (one of the country's leading distributors of pet medicines and supply items), award-winning cinematographer Mego Lin and I captured some incredible footage. The two films will be available online soon.
