Got down to the brand new National Comedy Center in Jamestown, NY recently for their grand opening and an interesting 1st Amendment panel discussion with Lewis Black, Paul Cambria, & Kitty Bruce, daughter of Lenny Bruce. The best part was the talk with Dan Aykroyd, Laraine Newman and writer Alan Zweibel from the original SNL cast.
I had the privilege of working with a crew from ATTN: on a fair housing piece in Buffalo for Zillow.
Spent some time in Olean, NY to shoot a commercial for Olean Area Federal Credit Union and discovered possibly the best Indian food on the entire planet at Tandoor.
Here’s a nice little 15 second version of the :30 spot I shot with director Eric Frick for Quinlan & Co:
I got out to Quinlan & Co’s new location recently and was able to visit the two Addy Awards they received for the Life Storage spots I produced and shot, woof! My friend Eric Frick directed these and post-production was handled at Quinlan & Co.
Got to meet Ray Mancini last week, former WBA lightweight title holder from 1982 to 1984 for an evening of boxing talk, autographs, and photos. With Entertainment brought Mancini into town for the packed event and I even got a little one on one film finance discussion with Ray who’s most recently a film producer.
