Last year we created a post about working with Producer Lisa Tesone and Director David Mackie on a futuristic Cable Labs Video.

We were thrilled that David and Lisa returned with another Near Future project this year.

This time they wanted to create a new vision of how future technology will be able to help the elderly stay in their homes longer.  We were able to provide them with 4 full locations for this campaign.

Not only is this team fantastic to work with, but their final results are truly beautiful.

We invite you to watch their final cut below:



This past summer, we were contracted by Lindsay Heimer of NorthSix to scout and complete a full day light study of Sterling Vineyards for their new ad campaign which was to be shot by Norman Jean Roy.

Their concept was a chic, modern spin on the glamorous fashion of the 60’s, set to the backdrop of the architecturally stunning winery terrace and bell tower.

I absolutely loved this concept and think that they did a great job fulfilling their inspiration.

Oh, and by the way, if you haven’t been to Sterling, I would highly recommend the experience!

Here are a few of our scouting photos and final ads from this project…

We were asked to help secure a high end residential property with a pool and a bedroom for a new app that allows employers connect with potential hires. Max at Maximize Video was fantastic to work with and we think the video turned out great.

We recently worked with Patrick Demarchelier on a project that required locations with a closed set.  Although we knew that he was photographing olympic swimmers, Nathan Adrian and Matt Grevers and NBA All-Star, Stephen Curry, we had to keep a tight lid on this one.  They asked us to find them a swimming pool and gymnasium for an upcoming spread in Vogue magazine.  We just picked up the most recent issue to find the images inside!   It’s always great to see the results of our work.



We recently worked with Producer Lisa Tesone and Director David Mackie, helping them secure several locations for a futuristic Cable Labs Video.

The video highlights how a home of the future will be using high-speed networks.

They asked us to find them an office environment, a grandma’s house and a large home that would be transformed into a video game.

What an amazing final product!
