Without diving too deep into the individual projects, we wanted to toss out an update, a quick hitting insight into our late spring and summer, as we head toward fall.
MICROSOFT ONE DRIVE | VOX MEDIA
Shaun shot 2nd camera for Vox Media on their Microsoft One Drive campaign, featuring Todd Jones from Teton Gravity Research.
ALUMNI PROFILE | FIRST DESCENTS
As previously seen on the blog, we worked with First Descents, a local Denver non-profit working with young adults who are fighting or have dealt with cancer. This was a quick short about what helped Beast during chemo. We are heading into the rivers of Montana with them next week to capture a few more stories that should be coming out in the fall.
SILVERTON SCHOOL | COLORADO EDUCATION INITIATIVE
Spent practically the entire month filming, which made us really really happy. Here’s a quick screen grab from a shoot with Colorado Education Initiative. This shot was created at 6:15am in Silverton, Colorado. The weather was 19 degrees and our Los Angeles based Michael Grace absolutely loved/crushed only having a light fleece and lukewarm coffee.
SPROUT AMP | PS AUDIO
We also managed to wrap a kickstarter video for PS Audio’s new Sprout Amp project. We normally don’t do kickstarter videos, but kickstarters normally don’t yield 414k off a 36k goal either. We are incredibly psyched to be on board their incredibly successful kickstarter/launch campaign. Here’s the video we created with Scott and the PS Audio team:
BLOG CABIN 2014 | DIY NETWORK
Wrapped up fifteen Blog Cabin 2014 online videos for DIY Network. Got to fly the MoVi M5 for the first time and had a great time with the crew. Also, loved working with local designers Jonathan and EB Combs from The Whistler and the Well to help create a fun title and lower 3rd look/feel. Here’s a quick peek at one of the videos and a couple fun BTS shots.
Kelsey finished the second issue of Fellow Magazine as Editor and Chief, which turned out to be a stunningly beautiful 144 pages, with over 30 contributors. Shaun and Adam both photographed stories, and one of our beekeeper story images landed on the cover. (magazine cover photo: Shaun Boyte / photo of woman holding magazine: David Fiser)
MLB ALLSTAR GAME PROMO | FOX
We were asked by Fox to film Troy Tulowitzki for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game intro, our first national tv appearance. Don’t have the piece anywhere online, but here is an iphone shot we got while watching.
URBAN MATTRESS | GOOD APPLES
We’ve been talking with the fine gentlemen over at Good Apples for a few years, looking for a project to collaborate with them on, and finally we found one. We shot the first location of a series of stills to be used for Urban Mattress for their campaign theme, “wake up well.” The photos will be finding their way into the world soon, but here are a couple iphone behind the scenes captures to give a very small glimpse into this project.
FD1 CAMP | FIRST DESCENTS
We were lucky enough to get to spend a week near the Clark Fork of the Columbia River in Tarkio, Montana with our friends, First Descents, filming an FD1 camp and helping to capture their brand story. Even though we were there capturing video assets, I could resist grabbing a few stills as well. Here are two of camp mom Goose and founder Brad Ludden.
FIREBALL WHISKEY | ZEHNDER
Got called upon by Zehnder of New Orleans to help direct and shoot a :30 second online commercial for Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey. We had an absolute blast, and while the production is still in post, here are a couple early, ungraded frame grabs. Shot on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
BALL INTERNAL “WHO WE ARE” VIDEO | CARBON8
We were incredibly psyched when we got the call from Carbon8 to film around Ball Corp for the day and capture a few interviews plus broll for a Who We Are internal video. Here are a couple fun BTS stills of Mike in his full PPE (personal protection equipment) gear and an incredibly talented driver, showing off a little for the camera, in the plant.
WHY COMMUNITY MATTERS | KARSH/HAGAN
We love working with Karsh and to combine that with capturing stories about why the community matters, we couldn’t have asked for a better day. We filmed two new stories in Estes Park and Loveland for the Community Matters Series. Here’s a quick BTS shot from the foundry, showing all the jackets that have been charred while on the job over the years
We are also currently wrapping up a few projects. On the next press run (on final approvals now): three 30 second broadcast spots and a two minute web video for Visit South Walton, another project we are working on with Zehnder (frame grab 1 below) and a 3 minute overview/brand piece covering our time in Nicaragua with Brown Water Coffee (a still from the project, 2, which was also featured in Fellow Magazine issue two).
Thanks for taking time to check out what we’ve been up to recently. Looking forward to an incredible fall of working hard, doing great work and taking care of our clients/friends!
