The massive airline campaign project is now completed, delivered, invoiced... done 'cept for the final bit of post-production. An email from one of the assigning agency's creative directors yesterday curled my lips into a smile when she reported that one of the delivered scenarios that I lobbied heavily for "cracked [her] up".
Things I learned during this project:
1) Facebook can be a viable casting resource. Thanks to all the helpful, talented folks that rose up to aid, assist, & act in the two week plus production.
2) I CAN (almost) still keep up with a crew of hyperactive 13 year olds.
3) If you lurk around a cemetery long enough, you're likely to turn up a live one now & then.
4) There is NEVER enough time.
It's no secret that I'm a music freak. The last three months have allowed me to indulge & engage my eyes & ears with some of the cream of Hawaii music talent. We've completed projects recently for HAPA, Willie K & his Band, editorial pieces on Mick Fleetwood, video production stills for The Throwdowns & more. There's a project for progressive/performance artists MOTH in the works and yesterday was spent shooting new promotional images & CD packaging art for The Throwdowns (see photo above). A massive mansion was conscripted for this effort and a full day of production ended with the band submerged in a swimming pool. And there's more to come with images for Barry Flanagan's (HAPA founder) solo projects.
Today, there's a benefit golf tournament and coverage of an evening Japan Relief Benefit requiring coverage. A project for the Pacific Cancer Institute is on slate for next week and a three day shoot on the Big Island for Prince Resorts is scheduled for early May.
One of the best things I've stumbled across this week was a three part interview with uber-inspirator Dan Winters, published at Rob Haggart's A Photo Editor blog. Insightful, inspiring and well worth a read.
Now, it time to throw myself under a shower and head off to the links... FORE!
