Being Young & Free

Being Young & Free

In the city of Nashville, in the middle of October, all the Spokesters of Young & Free program (with Currency Marketing) came together for a video collaboration. Seven smart, fun and outgoing young women representing the seven different regions of Young & Free, came to share what it meant to be Young & Free. 

We spent a long day of shooting together, starting off with some really miserable weather in downtown Nashville. Plenty of walking, checking out different alley ways, old streets with brick laden buildings and hearing, "OK, one more time…", "OK, just one more time…" as I asked them to share their "Being Young & Free" lines again and again, anxiously waiting for me to say "Great, we got it!"

The Spokesters were incredible and patient, letting me follow, and lead them around Nashville, all the while getting them to walk one way, sit together another, talk that way and be this way. Each of them brought great presence and delivery on camera. 

The script for this video was created by Tim McAlpine, but with a lot of collaboration from the Spokesters. Well before our shoot, we sent out a note to the Spokesters asking them what they thought it meant to be Young & Free. Many of their responses made it straight into the final video.

I present to you, Being Young & Free.

Fusing Filming & Fishing

I love to get behind my camera and film.
I love to grab my fishing rod and go fishing.
I've been lucky enough, with an incredible opportunity with the Fishing Reviews TV team, to start doing both.
  

Here's my first fishing review video on the Cheeky Ambush 375 Fly Reel: 

I'm really enjoying the ability to pack along my fishing gear with my film gear. I've also recently picked up the GoPro Hero 3 and I'm looking forward to putting it to the test more and more.
Cheers.

Patrick Kane might be able to beat up cab drivers and go wild in limos, but he can also stick handle and his teammates are awesome!

My i3 Road Trip - Long Version

A while back you may have noticed that I posted a copy of a video I had the pleasure of working on in Washington DC and part of Virginia. 

It was a very cool road trip conference (something I never heard of before) and with a very rad organization that works with credit unions across North America. 

I had worked with them to document their trip and film the events that took place on the trip. It's one of the longest pieces I've done, but enjoyable and something I'll never forget being a part of. 

Cheers.

The Deal: Number Two Trailer

A few years ago, before the third Hawkins was a thought, I filmed a fun little action movie with my two oldest boys, in the backyard. 

It was a lot of fun filming and we have talked about doing a sequel for some time. Finally, that time has come! Here's the official trailer: (Movie due out in a couple of days!)
