Monster Truck

Sugar Free All Stars

The Sugar Free All Stars came to Nathan Poppe and I looking for a sweet Monster Truck video for a single they had coming out.

We mulled it around and decided we had to have a power wheels truck (it's really a Jeep). 

Nathan cooked up a great script and we got together one weekend and made the most absurd video I've made in a long time.

Monster Truck, legos, 40 school buses, green screen. And lots of pancakes.

Check it out and do stay until the end. The scene variety in this is pretty special.

Read Poppe's behind the scenes blog too!

Behind the Scenes with Kevin Durant

Got a cool opportunity to capture some more behind the scenes video and stills of another Kevin Durant commercial. Thanks again to Amanda Hyden!

This time it was for a Panini trading card commercial. The production was super cool - lots of fog and big light balloons. I was impressed with idea and execution.

Matt Stansberry and the Romance in the Studio

If forced to choose a favorite band out of all the killer talent in Oklahoma, I would have to go with Matt Stansberry and the Romance. Their sound is so unique and different than anything I've heard today.

I was fortunate to spend some time with Matt and the gang in studio as they recorded a couple new songs.

I'm mainly working on a behind the scenes video (coming soon), but I did snap a few photos as well. 

The Plaza District 2015

The Plaza District is home to some of my favorite restaurants, shops, sights and people on earth.

I was lucky to get to make them a video this year. I wanted to make a unique video that shows off the color and quirk of the shops and small business owners. I mixed in a lot of video, stills and aerials.

Here it is:

 

And some of the photos of those awesome, colorful people:

Behind the Scenes - Kevin Durant - Sonic Drive-In Commercials

You may have seen a couple of funny Sonic Drive-In commercials with Kevin Durant taking on the two goofy Sonic guys, TJ and Pete. These were filmed in Oklahoma City in March 2015 with local and outside crew. And I got to capture the behind the scenes video!

We filmed at a local Sonic and a nearby basketball gym. It was pretty crazy to see just how much goes into these commercials - tons of crew, lights, cameras, and assistants. Lots of people came together to make it happen.

KD was a total treat to work with. Honest and gracious in every step. He was really excited to meet TJ and Pete. I think the spots turned out pretty great. And a big thanks to Amanda Hyden for giving me the opportunity to help out.
