New Era Cap “22 Steps”

I love machines and mechanized processes. Every time I get a chance to work in New Era Cap’s Derby, NY plant, I marvel at the engineering behind baseball cap manufacture. As a former motorcycle mechanic and present day fabricator, it’s all so completely fascinating to me.

I think we made 3 or 4 visits to the Derby, NY plant over a year or so to record the footage that went into this piece showing the 22 steps of baseball cap manufacture. Even though we’ve shot many of these same machines running through their paces many times, this piece I think is the pinnacle of our exploration of cap manufacture, thanks in large part to John Long’s motion graphics and vision not to mention the dedication of New Era Brand Historian, Jim Wannemacher.

Go Hockey!

Got over to the sprawling hockey complex in downtown Buffalo, twice in a week for unrelated projects involving what else but hockey. Yesterday, I rolled on interviews, ice action, and we shot some drone action with top Sabres scorer, Jack Eichel for Key Bank promos. Last week I interviewed René Fasel, president of the International Ice Hockey Federation for the International Olympic Committee.

That time we made a viral video…

It starts with an idea, then a little running around, then a half day of shooting, then finishes with a day or so of post production. Two days and 428,000 views later, with 60 bucks spent on paid reach, not bad. Connecting with & motivating people en masse is fun! On to the next one…

Turner Classic Movies in Buffalo

Spent a day at the historic North Park Theatre a few weeks back to film the TCM Backlot event and interviews for their ‘The Natural” screening event with director Barry Levinson. We got a nice little tour of the whole setup with Theatre Program Director Ray Barker and even got to see the projection booth which is a bona fide time capsule in itself.

Sutter Homes Wines

This is a fun project I worked on as B-camera operator a few months back up in Watertown, NY. We had two C300MKII rolling right into the evening. Good times 🙂

End of summer, beginning of hot dogs.

After a bit of a delay, we just squeaked by with great weather for two shoot days with Quinlan & Company. Eric Frick was on hand to direct our three spots for Sahlen’s Hot Dogs and this project marked the return of renowned food stylist Karen Marzak who managed to work our stills sets as well as our film sets simultaneously.

A sound decision (by me, hehe) in prep to utilize two-camera setups saved us the one thing besides budget that we didn’t have a lot of – time, and we managed to achieve our shoot days with little to no overtime.

Amazing makeup artist, Josselyn Scott, with our AMS talent.

Here I am checking the detailed schedule while creative director Frank Conjerti confidently looks on.

The sun setting as I confer with director Eric Frick. Everyone’s happy 🙂

Dishing it out in our makeshift garage studio.

Hot dogs are ready!
