"Projectile Point" - Texas Story project

Promotional Documentary

THE HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF A 14,000 YEAR OLD PROJECTILE POINT RECENTLY DISCOVERED IN FLORENCE, TEXAS.

 

 

ABOUT
The Texas State Preservation Board, in collaboration with The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, asked us to create a short documentary showcasing a large-scale conservation effort that took place in Florence, Texas over the course of two decades. With the leadership of  Dr. Michael Collins, and the help of thousands of volunteers and researchers from across the world, the excavation team was able to unearth more ancient artifacts on this single plot of land than any other archeological site in North America.  The most significant artifact discovered was a 14,000 year old projectile point that was most likely used for small game hunting. Prior to the discovery of this projectile point, it was believed that humans were not present in this part of the world until approximately 9,000 years ago. This single projectile point, discovered just 45 miles north of Austin, shattered prior understandings of human history in this part of the world.  Using archive photos, interviews and on-location footage we produced over 32 video deliverables, culminating into 1 short documentary, that communicate how this artifact changed our understanding of Texas history. 

These videos were made for external use, and distributed via television broadcast, web and social media channels. Vertical versions and mobile optimized cuts were delivered specifically for Instagram Stories and Facebook.

ABOUT
We approached Big Crown Records with a music video treatment for
Texas and took it on as a passion project. This project was a fast one, with only 29 days for pre production and 3 days of filming in the Austin area.  Aside from just being fun (i.e. shooting 45 caliber revolvers and driving a custom Ford F100), passion projects like this provide value to our team because they allow us to work with new folks, experiment with different approaches and stay loose. Most notably, this project gave us means to work with cinematographer and UT Alumni, Zach Morrison. Zach is an Austin-based cinematographer making a name for himself in the film community on a national level. His recent work has earned him a nomination to be accepted into the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) - the most prestigious and exclusive cinematography network in the industry. 

The Texas music video was made possible by Big Crown Records, Bring Light & Sound, 25 cast and crew members, and hundreds of breakfast tacos.

"SXSW Takeover" - Fox Sports

Event Coverage

AN INTERNAL-USE VIDEO TO SHOWCASE THE SCALE, CELEBRITY, AND kPi's SURROUNDING FOX SPORTS' 2018 SXSW PARTY.

 

 

ABOUT
Fox Sports' 2018 South By Southwest party was a home run, and they needed a video to distribute within their organization that communicated just how much of a success it really was. The event took place in downtown Austin over the course of 3 days in what is normally the Hangar Lounge, although the bar was hardly recognizable due to the massive building wrap which featured iconic FIFA players. For all 3 days we hung out with the folks at Fox Sports and shot this video with an ultra-light production crew. The vision of the video was to showcase the various attractions at the event (airbrush tattoos, the 180-degree photo booth, themed tacos, FIFA foosball, DJ's and celebrity appearances), then overlay stats of how the attractions performed. We created VFX of the building transforming into a FIFA-themed attraction, captured street side testimonials from actual attendees, and added a soccer-themed sound mix and soundtrack to bring it all together. 

The event was produced by Austin-based PR Firm, Giant Noise

"Artist Showcase" - Vinyl Me Please

Event Coverage

A MOBILE-FOCUSED CONCERT RECAP AND FULL LENGTH ARTIST INTERVIEWS FOR THE VINYL ME PLEASE ARTIST SHOWCASE.

 

 

ABOUT
Vinyl Me Please (VMP) started as a curated vinyl record subscription box and has since grown into a successful magazine and blog with a very dedicated fan base. Beyond just curating limited edition records and sourcing some of the finest new musical acts in the business, they also provide a platform for lesser known bands and musicians to showcase their work.  This platform is known as the VMP Rising Artist Showcase and it recently made a stop in downtown Austin for a 7-act lineup at Empire Control Room. VMP needed a video that captured the hype of the event to promote future VMP Rising Artist Showcase stops, as well as full length artist interviews to distribute on their blog and social channels.

In a single 14 hour day we captured 4 artist interviews and the entire 7-act show. The shoot yielded 6 final video deliverables both for online and vertical distribution. For more information about VMP check out their website here.

"Mission Gate" - Texas Story Project

Promotional Documentary

THE meticulous RESTORATION AND CONSERVATION OF A HISTORICAL MISSION GATE ON DISPLAY AT THE BOB BULLOCK MUSEUM.

ABOUT
Many years ago a Central Texas Family contacted the Texas State Preservation board about a wooden mesquite gate that was deteriorating on their ranch. After analyzing the gate experts realized it was a very rare original gate that was undoubtedly located at one of the missions in San Antonio, Texas - possibly the Alamo. The gate is made of two halves, each acting as a swinging door, and one half was significantly more damaged than the other. The half that was in better shape has been on display at The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum for some time while the deteriorated half has been undergoing significant restoration work. We were commissioned to produce a few dozen videos, culminating in a short documentary, that showcased just how much work and attention to detail was required to fully restore the gate. A small team of art conservators, led by Catherine Williams, worked tirelessly for more than 400 hours to bring the gate back to life so that it could be reunited with its other half on display at the Bob Bullock Museum. 

These videos were made for external use, and distributed via television broadcast, web and social media channels. Vertical versions and mobile optimized cuts were delivered specifically for Instagram Stories and Facebook.

 

 

 
 
 

"Julie" - Engender Health

Promotional Documentary

THE STORY OF A teen mother who was sexually abused, and share the impact engenderhealth's re:mix program has made on her life. 

ABOUT
EngenderHealth's Re:MIX program is a medically accurate, comprehensive sexual health curriculum that covers a broad range of topics including human development, relationships, decision making, abstinence, contraception, and disease prevention. The program is taught to high school students in Austin by health educators and peer educators - many of whom are young parents themselves. Bring Light & Sound was commissioned to produce a short documentary that tells the personal story of Julie,  a peer educator with Re:MIX, and her experience as an abuse victim and teen mother.  The story follows Julie and her daughter as they go about a normal day. Early morning routines. Daycare. Afternoon visits to the playground. But more importantly the story allows Julie to open up about the day to day struggles of being a teen parent, and how Re:MIX has changed her life path. 

This piece was part of a larger, multifaceted video project for Re:MIX that aimed to inform stakeholders and humanize the curriculum for donors. Informational videos, and interactive video FAQ and program overview video were also produced.
