Engauge Hot n’ Cold

I did this video for our agency Holiday Party [2008]. The goal was to one-up the video from the year before. I got a lot of positive response from the 2007 video so I thought I would keep it going. I tried to pick a more current song [at the time] and thought Hot n’ Cold was the perfect song to reflect how we [sometimes] feel about accounts. We actually liked working with all the clients shown in this video but it was funny [inside joke] how each one of them had their moments for us that fit with the song.

Couple of Technical Points:

  • There were a few throw-backs to the 2007 video. The gun, the clothes I’m wearing, etc.
  • This video was a little more difficult because no one knew what song it was. The people helping shoot and in the video didn’t know what song I was using or really what I was doing. I wanted the video to be as much of a surprise as possible.
  • The ending is an homage to the ending of Tropic Thunder [for those that don’t know].

Cookie Day: a Documentary – OFFICIAL TRAILER

I put together this video for Ted’s Montana Grill’s “Cookie Day” (if it isn’t obvious). We had a concept for this then the promotion changed from when we originally decided to do a video, so we went in another direction. At the last minute (the day before) I came up with the documentary idea. The goal was to make a 2 – 3 minute video but when we mapped out scenes for the documentary it seemed like the video would be 20 – 30 minutes long… I was about to throw in the towel when Beckley (Misty) said “why don’t we just make it a trailer of the documentary”.

Warming up a gong

This is the BrightWave gong. Contrary to popular belief, you are supposed to warm up a gong before… um… gonging it. Steve Roe shows us how:

Video with Nalts

This is “my” most seen video on YouTube… and by “my” I mean “Kevin Nalty’s video that I happen to be in.. sort of”. I’m the person conducting the interview (and hiding the camera). That’s my knee, elbow, etc. Kevin Nalty (“Nalts”) a viral video guru came and spoke at one of our Lunch n’ Learns then came back to the office to prank some of our employees. Nalts was (maybe still is?) one of the top ten comedians on YouTube at the time.

Spunlogic Kryptonite Rap Video (Big Boi)

I put together this video for our agency Holiday Party [2007]. My main goal was really just to get more views of this video on YouTube than a video that was used the previous year. The reason? Well, I didn’t have any creative control of the video the year before and wasn’t told it would be put on YouTube [Thanks Jeff]. I wanted to put something up that would be a replacement.

Star Wars meets The Princess Bride

I didn’t have anything to do with this video but felt like it should be on the site somewhere just for good measure.
