Oscars Special

This year, we take a look at the 9 Best Pictures nominees for the 84th Academy Awards.

“The Artist” {The Weinstein Company}

Not often that I get to promote a silent film with Oscar buzz. Actually – I’ve never promoted ANY silent film. What a unique opportunity to work on such a great cast piece for such an interesting movie. Definitely looking forward to seeing “The Artist”. We featured pretty much everyone but the Jack Russell terrier. Enjoy!

• Jean Dujardin
• Bérénice Bejo
• Missi Pyle
• John Goodman
• Penelope Ann Miller

 

 

Pacquiao – Matrinez III

“I wanna thank the Lord… for givin’ me the strength….. to whoop this man’s ass.” Okay – so that was David Alen Grier on SNL many years ago and not Manny Pacquiao on his recent controversial bout with Juan Manuel Márquez. This 3rd matchup was supposed to bring some closure to the much anticipated fight. If cups and cans being thrown rink-side were any indication, the crowd at the MGM Grand in Vegas were none too happy with the decision to Pacquiao.

Regardless, there’s already talk of another rematch. That’s fine by me as we’ll hopefully get to work with Dish Network and Top Rank again on another boxing special. Our latest special is unique in that we take you inside Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Boxing Club. You get to see Manny training and Scott Patrick sat down with both Freddie and Manny to talk about the fight. Top Rank was kind enough to provide additional material for this special.

Photography included Sony’s PMW-EX3 and a Canon 7D. Cut in Final Cut with color grading in Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Looks. As always, a great pleasure working with Dish and Top Rank.

Dish / Blockbuster Movie Pass

As Netflix continues losing subscribers and market value, other options have become available recently. I’d like to think we’re part of the growing trend towards more options for consumers out there. But wait. We were just hired to make the video announcement for the Dish / Blockbuster Movie Pass. When Dish CEO Joe Clayton recently announced the service at a tech conference, our video was rolled out.

Clips include current movies available and games for download. Title Pages were created in After Effects. Sequence was mastered in Final Cut and mastered using DaVinci Resolve.
