We repurposed the spot as an interactive shopping experience, letting customers augment the items in various scenes, shopping straight from the ad.

Soccer brought this unlikely group of Congolese refugees together. They found a second home in Houston and the power of sport built a bond that even Hurricane Harvey couldn’t wash away. #SportsMatter

For the Samsung GS7 we went on an real 24 hour journey through NYC. Using only still images from the camera itself (over 100,000 photographs) we created a 7 min short film, gifs, and stills.
We took the phone up in a helicopter, to a concert, underwater at a pool party...pretty much the most epic NYC experience one can have. It was so much fun to shoot.

Also, I helped Reese's go global by being the production lead on an international team that introduced China to this “peanut paste” that’s "surprisingly delicious".

Verizon (Go90) first foray in original content was a Real Time Reality Series, created by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
The moody teaser was directed by Andreas Roth at RSA
The stunt heavy one was directed by Smuggler's Tom Hooper
Ben and Matt did the VO. Matt was cooler.
Ted Guard at RPS cut both.
In a world of clutter there's something refreshing about simplicity. And man do I love claymation.

This wasn't the typical hire a director / production company and go...it had many moving parts. I worked with Lucas Films to gather assets from the FORCE AWAKENS film, negotiated the rights to use the Star Wars music, was the production lead on the Google Cardboard animation, produced various social videos and gifs which raised awareness about the app / cardboard giveaway, and I produced the live event / live event film.
When SONOS announced they were going public they did it by redesigning the NASDAQ Opening Bell. Here’s that process.
Had 2 weeks to pull it off with shoots in both LA and NY. Small small crew and very little money.
Intimate scenes set in and around New York City using cell animation to convey the feeling that Healthcare can be simple and personal. The Emblem Health logo we created was central to each story we crafted.

76ers big man Joel Embiid is known in the league as "The Process" due to his potential but he keeps getting hurt. He was expected to win Rookie Of The Year (his 3rd season - first one actually playing) when this commercial was to launch...2 days before launch he got hurt again, knocking him out for the rest of his rookie season.
We scrambled and changed the script to include his latest troubles. To his credit, he thought it was funny. This airing along side his latest injury earned 316MM media impressions and secured a total of 153 placements. It's by far the best results seen from any campaign launch at HSY – including a celebrity and/or athlete.
Joel is back on track and gonna be a huge star. Follow his Instagram, he's hilarious.

TV, digital, social, Print
Pretty tabletop and print. The pop group Fifth Harmony provided the soundtrack for the TV, which in turn gave Hershey’s huge reach and extended their fan base across all mediums. A Facebook promotion also ran that asked people how they feed their fancy and the winners received fancy prizes from the brand.

We had the B2B social work. The trucks are seriously awesome but our budgets were not. I was given $50K to get a library of rolling truck shots. We couldn't afford a Russian arm so I partnered with Futuristic films and found the old camera truck that filmed all the car shows in the 70s and 80s (Dukes of Hazard, Knight Rider, etc.). We got a rolling permit in Texas for 2 days and strapped in for the ride.
Our audience were truck drivers so amongst the gear talk we mixed in some fun videos where I partnered with smaller production companies. The Torque work was thru ModOp Films and Uptime Service - partnered with Rare Icons.
