Glass & Marker Year 1

In January, Glass & Marker celebrated our one year anniversary, and we put together a little video that recaps all of the fun and excited projects we worked on in 2012.

Going through all of this footage really made me feel blessed to have been a part of so many inspiring projects.  I'm reminded of all the work that it's taken to get to where we are, and I couldn't be more proud of our team.

How Viral Video is Made - Virool

If you like EPIC productions, then you're going to like Glass & Marker's new video.  We had the opportunity to make a short film for a company called Virool, who specializes in making videos go viral.  The numbers are still coming in, but so far we've hit 3 MILLION views!  Enjoy one of the craziest and wackiest videos you might ever see.

Produced By: Glass & Marker
Creative Direction: Tarnoff, Markham
Producers: Hersler, Hayden
Cinematography: Tarnoff
Visual Effects: Bunch, Markham, Apolinar
Production Design: Ball
AD/AC: Hayden
Sound: Schwartz

It was an ambitious project from the onset: creating a fictional world built around the idea that anyone could become famous with a little dose of Virool.  Our primary obstacle was to make this feel like more than an isolated case, but an actual worldwide movement.  With over 80 cast members, 15 locations, and two weeks of principal shooting, we had to be on our game every step of the way.

Google Ingress

Finally making it's appearance on my personal blog is part of the 6+ month project we worked on for Google: Ingress.  Glass & Marker was brought in to make a wide range of video content for the game's underground marketing campaign called "The Niantic Project."  The content range included professional 15 and 30 second commercials as well as "amateur" looking story content for the ARG.  The campaign culminated in the huge launch of Google's first mobile game, and Nick and I are proud to have made the epic launch video.

Google Field Trip

Glass & Marker's newest video is live.  It's a project I directed with Nick Markham for Google.  Fieldtrip is an Android app that connects people to the world around them, by providing them interesting information and recommendations based on the users location.  The app can notify you about cool historical information, interesting landmarks, unique restaurants and tons of other great places around you.

The Calm Life, Part 1 - BCalm

After working a series of 100 hour weeks at my new company, Glass & Marker, I needed a break... big time.  But when our client BCalm heard about my trip to Tahoe, they wanted to get on board.  And of course, I can't help but film when I have the opportunity to capture cinematic stuff.  It's how I relax, honestly.  So I got to make a very low pressure video about relaxation, friendship, and our awful Jenga skills.

Props to Christie Goshe for helping out with the editing on this project.  Oh and if you haven't tried BCalm Wellness Drink, check it out.  Seriously.  It's now a Glass & Marker shared addiction.  And it actually works, imo.

Sandbox Love goes to Hawaii!

Vitalie and I got to head to Hawaii for almost a week to be a part of Amy and Rob's wedding experience.  I knew while we were there that this was going to be a masterpiece.  And sure enough, it's a Sandbox Love classic :).

Here is a link to the Official Sandbox Love blog post for Amy and Rob's Wedding.
