OK Go – I Won’t Let You Down – Official Video
From the album Hungry Ghosts, out now in North America on iTunes
This is a great video for production and quality – The video control of the drone is super amazing. This video in a short time has over 8 million hits.
Remembering my childhood – I grew up in Sheboygan, Wisconsin during the time Rock and Roll radio was tops and personalities on radio were SUPREME. We would listen to WOKY in Milwaukee. – The Mighty 92 with Bob Barry. Or WLS and WCFL in Chicago – those two stations were always in rating battles – But it was not just the music you listened for it was the personality and the contests they had. I actually started my career in radio broadcasting. It was fun but the media was changing, therefore I went into producing and directing for television and film.
This is dedicated to Larry Lujack who was a Top 40 Music radio disc jockey who was well known for his world-weary sarcastic style. “Klunk Letter of the Day”, the darkly humorous “Animal Stories” with sidekick “Little Tommy,” and the “Cheap Trashy Show Biz Report” were some of his more popular bits. He was also referred to as Superjock, Lawrence of Chicago, Uncle Lar, and King of the Corn Belt. At the time of this letter he was at Super CFL – The Voice Of Labor.
I hope you enjoy as much as I did growing up listening to him.
This is our latest commercial filmed in May, and just now released to TV stations for broadcasting. This commercial has an original song, written by Nate Drew and sung by Hannah Bennett. Produced by Eric Bennett and directed by Gilbert Howe. Cinematographer was Howard Little and associate Joey and Dana. Make up by Sophia. Great shoot with a great crew and a large talent pool that made this come together perfectly.
We have in the last 5 years of working with Randall Malin , a talented and really fun guy, who always goes to the max for our commercials has helped us create these award winning TV commercials. He looks a little like Dr. House, which helped him land the character role with us. We have now done 25 commercials with him in this “role of professor.” We want to share this great campaign with out audience, clients and friends who have been a fantastic part in these commercials coming to fruition. We hope you enjoy a quick look at 5 years of “The Professor”.

And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more. — Erica Jong.
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle. –Paulo Cohelo
Stress VS. Peace
Twenty years ago I seldom even heard the word “stress.” Now, it seems I hear it everyday from young and old alike. Are we a stressed-out generation? Is the pace of our lives destroying the peace of our lives? This story is intended to be a gentle reminder to us all.
One night, at the Savior’s command, the apostles took their ship and with Him set across the Sea of Galilee. Being weary, Jesus went to the stern of the boat and was soon asleep on a pillow.
An unusually violent storm arose, blowing down from the surrounding mountains. Huge waves broke over the boat filling it with water until it was on the verge of sinking.
The disciples were terrified. Coming to the Master, they awoke Him saying, “Master, carest thou not that we perish?”
The Savior arose immediately and rebuked the wind saying unto the sea, “Peace, be still!” Instantly, the wind abated and there followed a great calm. The disciples were astonished at Him. They knew He had power, but because their fear had over-ruled their faith, they failed to comprehend how far-reaching His power actually was.
Now, with us, if He can calm as angry sea,surely He can calm a troubled heart. He is the one and only source of lasting peace. So much so is He the giver of this great gift that Isaiah calls Him the “Prince of Peace” — a prince to whom I would hope we would be subjects at any sacrifice. Thanks to Glen Rawson for sharing this story.
Just wanted to do something creative for Halloween and share it with our clients and viewers. We hope you have a fun, but scary celebration with family and friends. But be careful of where you are and who you are with — they could turn on you in their darkest moments.
