Its been a little while since we had the chance to update the website. Things haven’t really slowed down for us this summer, and as the weather gets colder and the NYC film industry slows somewhat, we’ll be able to post more frequently on upcoming projects and some of the cool things on the horizon.
First up, some of you might have seen our MoVi M15 Unboxing Video on Vimeo. We thought it might be a nice way of introducing our new and improved rig while running through some of the new features of the M15. We’ve also heard from other M10 owners who were happy to see the rig in action and get a chance to decide whether or not the upgrade is worth it. We now own both the M15 and the M10, giving us greater flexibility on small jobs where the budget may not allow us to run with the new bleeding edge tech. As soon as we get the chance to rig up our friend’s F55, I’ll be sure to post pictures of the previously impossible setup.

Also this month, we had the opportunity to produce and direct our first commercial as a company. The spot, for coffee manufacturer Brooklyn Bean, is a humorous play on the new Keurig 2.0 machines that require a scanned barcode before pumping your coffee. It’s Keurig’s way of trying to make money off of smaller third party coffee makers, and the initiative seems to greatly restrict user choice. “Gotta Scan Bro” is currently in post production, and we hope to have it finished by late November. We can’t show you any footage yet, but check out a few stills from the project below.
Last but not least, we’ve rolled out new page updates across the site, including to our “Work” page where we’ve started posting completed projects as they’ve premiered online. You can check out our work on a music video for Pigeon John, an ad campaign for Depict, and our very first video for The Barbarian Group among others.
Hopefully by November we will have the necessary clearances to premiere our Summer 2014 Reel. It’s all edited and ready to go, we just can’t jump the gun for many of our corporate clients. Feel free to contact us via our Contact page if you’d like us to send along the private link.
Until next time!
