Korte Does It All – Generator

, , ,

http://vimeo.com/75240890 A 30 second image commercial for Korte Does It All in Fort Wayne, Indiana. This commercial was one of five commercials produced in one day that mixed an matched elements to promote both seasonal and year-round services. The Generator Spot is my favorite of the "That's A Call to Korte" series.  I enjoyed the challenge of creating the computer generated thunderstorm and lighting to composite over the actual house that was used for the shoot.  We also had to rig lights throughout the house that could turn off with one switch and coordinate the exterior lights with people on the switches.   It took three of us on walkie-talkies to throw all the switches at once and make the house go dark. Produced for Patterson Riegel Advertising. This commercial was produced in September 2013

Poorman’s Heating and Air – Story Time

, ,

http://vimeo.com/72986484 A 30 second commercial promoting Poorman's Heating and Air quality heating services. This spot was inspired by the book Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton.  My Grandmother used to read this book to me when I was a child. This commercial was a lot of fun to shoot.  The child's bedroom was created from scratch to give the commercial a consistent look. Since this commercial was produced in August, the opening shot with the snow had to be created in After Effects.  The "Train" in the basement took a great deal of Photoshop and After Effects work to get just right. Produced for Patterson Riegel Advertising. This spot was created in August 2013.
