Graduating Tallgrass Style!

No more classes! No more books! No more teachers’ dirty looks! That’s right - we’re talking Grad Night at San Diego State University! And the Tallgrass Team was there to join in on the celebrations. We wanted to send the graduating class of 2014 off the funnest way we knew how, but also with something that really hit home and summarized their year.

At the studio we compiled the graduates’ pictures, memories and current events that defined this year, everything from the viral hit “What Does the Fox Say” to the election of Pope Francis. But we didn’t stop there. On campus we set up our Slow-Mo booth and armed graduates with silly-string, confetti and a bumpin’ beat to get down and party to! It was a joy to watch friends and classmates uniting, laughing, and celebrating over their grand accomplishment. 

Everybody was super stoked…“Thank you so much JB. I knew you guys would pull it off but this truly exceeded my expectations. You guys are amazing” said Melissa Henss, the Assistant Director of Presidential Events at San Diego Staten University.

Congratulations Class of 2014, and good luck from all of us here at Tallgrass!

Friendsgiving 2013

To celebrate the season of thanks, we invited our friends from Digitaria over for Friendsgiving 2013. We’ve really enjoyed getting to know the folks from this great company throughout the year and couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our new friendship than with pink champagne & homemade crumble!

Each attendee arrived with their own home-cooked dish to impress. We had traditional Thanksgiving cuisine such as stuffing and green bean casserole, along with more unique dishes like Tsukuru’s nico jaga and Beau’s jambalaya. But the cherry on top, so to speak, had to be Sarah’s homemade apple pie.

After a fantastic meal and pink champagne, we headed to the main event...a slow motion booth! Earlier that day we’d built a set complete with a green screen and props, which included everything from confetti to silly string. We spent the next hour throwing glitter, blowing bubbles and dancing up a storm. 

The great thing about being a one-stop production company is that our team is able to build a set in-house incredibly quickly, and then edit the work right after. Our editing team took clips from the afternoon madness and used them to make one hilarious video. For your viewing pleasure, Tallgrass Pictures & Digitaria give you... Friendsgiving 2013: slow mo style!
