General Motors Photoshoot



Tallgrass welcomes Campbell-Ewald and General Motors to San Diego for a “Traveling With Kids” social media shoot for the On Star product line.  


Art Directors Phil Foster and John Kalmar from CE were amazing collaborators, true pros”, said photographer Jeffrey Lamont Brown. “Brown said, “it was uncanny, on some shots it was like we had a Vulcan mind meld and they really know how to nuance the images to tell the brand story.”  2 days, tons of great images and GIF’s and beach bonfire wrap party. Woot!

Game of Thrones: Concept Shoot

Who was elated for the Season Premiere of Game of Thrones?

Spoiler Alert: the Tallgrass Pictures Team! And who could cast blame upon us?! In honor of the upcoming premiere, we held this TV show inspired shoot. With the help of some local talent and a fantastic makeup artist - we were ready to get our Game of Thrones on! 

Our quest: To create portraits that mimicked the creative lighting effects found in the third season’s promo-posters. It was an entirely experimental shoot. A chance for us to have fun, get creative and practice with some new technology and different effects.

  Our holy grail? These final images!

Tallgrass Pictures is moving into pre-production on a new short film!

Nuclear attack.  There is not a soul left on this earth besides me.  Where am I?  Trapped in this abandoned fallout shelter.  If only I could get more than static on the f***ing radio.  Wait.  What is that?  It sounds like...breathing.  Who is in here with me? 

Stay tuned as we move into pre-production on our new short, FALLOUT.

 

Drumroll, Please! A new Tallgrass Pictures Short Film



Tallgrass Pictures could not be more excited to announce the release of AMERICAN SOCK, a short film of a woman looking to find love online only to fall in love with a sock puppet.

From the witty mind of writer Jason K. Allen and brought to life by the zany crew at Tallgrass Pictures, we are proud to present Angela Gulner and Sto Strouss in AMERICAN SOCK!

Enjoy!

"I love it!  Seriously, you all did fantastic work - it turned out better than I could have imagined.  Very clever with the graphics, title page, closing credits, music, etc.  The whole piece just has a lot of energy to it - fun and lighthearted, just what I was hoping for.  Good acting, too.  Yep, I'm certain I made the right decision giving the script over to you guys.  Thanks for everything - it was great working with you.  Who knows, maybe we'll work together again someday.  In the meantime, I'll continue to be a big Tallgrass Pictures fan and I look forward to seeing what you do next."

From SDSU students to Aztec Alum...Congrats Jeni and Allison!

Two Tallgrass team members just went from being San Diego State students to Aztec alumni. After four years of hard work and late nights in the on-campus library, we are very proud of our college graduates.    Jeni, our television show buff, graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Television & Film studies and, for fun, a minor in Political Science. Allison, our avid alliteration admirer, graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in English and minor in Marketing.   We know that they will carry their knowledge & success from university to even higher achievements at Tallgrass, where the learning never stops! 

We love pizza...

We’ve got a penchant for pizza and definitely has the hook-up! Thanks again for having us.

Love "Socks"

We all know the dating scene can be quite rough. That’s why in this digital age the use of dating websites has skyrocketed in hopes to weed out incompatible mates. But what would you do if you got a message from…a sock puppet? Yes, a sock puppet. And that sock puppet turned out to be everything you’ve been searching for in your wildest dreams. Here at TGP we’ve been having a blast gearing up for our new short film, “American Sock." We’ve had great laughs watching team members stand in as characters in the film, test shooting everything from dinner scenes with the sock puppet, to green screen tests, and even “sexy" bedroom scenes. So stay tuned for “American Sock." We hope you’ll have just as much fun watching it as we’ve had making it!
