A Prelude to the Madness

Last night was wild! I was shooting a promotional video for Shmaltz Brewing Company, the makers of the famous Jewish style beer lineup, He'Brew. They also have a line of beers called the Coney Island Craft Lagers AKA "The Freak Beers." Each beer is named after a performer in the Coney Island Circus Sideshow. So to promote the beer, Schmaltz wanted to go around to different bars in SF with two of the performers and put on a short show for the crowds. Heather Holliday rocked the sword swallowing and Donny Vomit busted out the Human Blockhead. Here are a few snaps I took from the night.

Many thanks to Rob Bagot for coming out and shooting with me on short notice. I'm excited to cut together a teaser for the video. Like I said, last night was wild!

  1. You rock mad socks bro. I had a feeling you would TKO this shoot and by the looks of it, you absolutely did. Thanks again for tackling it with such short notice. Hopefully the beer was excellent.

  2. Hey Jesse. This is Zak #1 from Shmaltz. Thanks again and again and again for joining the party on Tuesday night. I'm glad you guys had a good time and the shots look great so far. Can't wait to see the rest. Hope to see you soon.
