Next, more coffee. Woot! Then on to R2C: Great to connect with Sara, Kristen, and Alison in a chill setting. They are on fire. Tons of productions, multiple buildings...taking over the world.
Saving the best for last: CMD agency! Cindy Marks, you are our hero! Thanks for taking the meeting, even on crutches. Double order of TGP hot sauce for you.
Heads up Christiaan!
Great trip to LA to visit Midnight Oil, TBWA\Chiat\Day and Ignited.
Midnight Oil: 40 ft tall superhero wraps, sick theater displays, posters, 3d builds. Amazing. Creative and manufacturing all in one bldg. A frickin huge building.
Ignited: A creative community built by the power of curiosity. Hanging with Sam and showing our skills on the ping-pong table.
I like the way you roll TBWA\Chiat\Day: be more human (and if in doubt) be more dog ~ Plus a full size Bball court. Respect to Womack, Michael and Max for hookin it up. Enjoyed spreading the MARDI GRAS love: Hurricane style.
One of JB’s images will appear onstage in 'The Gospel of Loving Kindness” opening Dec 9th in Washington, D.C.
The play is a edgy, hymn-and-hip-hop-musical. It’s about a 17 year old boy who sings for President Obama at the White House, and is shot to death 3 weeks later.
Produced by the Mosaic Theater Company (http://www.mosaictheater.org/), written by Marcus Gardley and directed by Jennifer L. Nelson. Shout out to NJ Mitchell (Mosaic Board Member) for inviting us to participate.
In late September this year, Tallgrass went dog-gone mad! We had the pleasure of working with Vitro in creating a :15 sec TV spot for their client Unleashed! by Petco. The production was a blast and at the center of it all? Three very talented, adorable canines.
The hilarious spot followed a chubby dog as he runs in for dinner...and sadly squeeze in through the doggie door. After weeks of searching for the perfect talent, we were very lucky to have Lola, Penny Lane and Spike join us on set.
Tallgrass was joined by some talented folks in production, props, g&e, animal training and location management who really helped the day run smoothly and efficiently. We even had custom doors built thanks to our accomplished set constructors.
At the end of the day, we had the chance to run through the spot with all 3 dogs to make sure our client’s creative got the best treatment.
Want to find out who made it into the final spot? Check it out below:
And here's another version with JB's favorite pup - Spike:
We’re so glad we got to collaborate with the great minds at Vitro and Unleashed! by Petco. Looking forward to our next one...fingers crossed for more new, furry friends!
