EPIC Series

Tallgrass Pictures got a crash course in what it means to be EPIC this past weekend, at the EPIC Series Fitness Challenge Course. Athletes of all levels gathered Saturday & Sunday at the Del Mar Fairgrounds to compete in a workout like no other. No mud, no long runs - just intense plyometric, strongman inspired, challenge course fun! 

Our goal: To capture the EPIC adventure for all future participants. Alex, Rachel, Gavin and Nico were appropriately decked-out with our RedEpic cameras to capture every moment that unfolded throughout the day. While Tsukuru and our pilot Russell, strapped a Go-Pro to our Heli to seize a truly EPIC view. 

We didn’t even compete yet the course left us exhausted and exhilarated by the end of the day.

Check out the tractor pulling, tire flipping, even wall climbing insanity!

Pyro, steam machines and ingredients falling from the sky = huge success with our second shoot with BJ's restaurants!

Our second TV commercial shoot with BJ’s restaurants was a huge success, we’ve exceeded everyone’s expectations. Our challenge was to get 10 shots in one shoot day, with every shot having several moving parts: pyro, steam mechanics, ingredients falling from the sky! It took the complete effort of 14 team members, but we did it! The spot will air in selected markets in the US on March 17th… keep your eyes peeled!

Prepped and ready for Napa Valley!

The Napa Valley: Final Prep Day We stopped by a few of our locations today to button down some final details before our shoot, and meanwhile, learned the science of making wine! After a tour through Trefethen winery, we were fascinated to see the process from the lab, to the tasting room, and into the bottles. After that, we headed for the rolling hills and mapped out a good location to film an evening dinner in the vines, where Gavin & Aly acted as stand-in models for the scene-to-be. After rallying up with the rest of the team and greeting our talent, we ended the day filming poolside at The Carneros Inn. The light, talent, and atmosphere were everything we could ever ask for to start off a great week of filming in Napa. Shout out to Diane from The Carneros Inn - you are an exquisite host, thank you for the goody bag!
