Ho, ho, ho! 22 Boston Store Commercials

2010-11-17T08:13:05+00:00

I don’t know what you were doing 30 years ago this week, but we clearly remember our November 1980. We had only been open for business a few months and we were about to create more than twenty 30-second spots for Boston Store in one week. After much negotiating, the Pabst Mansion had allowed us [...]

Oh the Places We’ve Been

2010-11-03T07:04:21+00:00

“Oh the Places We’ve Been”- A collection of interesting shooting locations. Coal mines, operating rooms, nuclear power and sewage treatment plants, boardrooms and factory floors…. We’ve spent time in all of them over the past 30 years in Wisconsin and most of the other 50 states. But we always have a special fondness for the [...]

Badger Meter

2010-10-26T12:20:54+00:00

Projects often start with a challenge. And a challenge is what we faced when we started putting together a video to celebrate Badger Meter’s 100th anniversary. Why? Well, telling the story of the very early days of the company would take at least a minute or two of the video and the only visual we [...]

Homeland Security

2010-10-20T14:06:26+00:00

In the summer of 2009 we found ourselves casting bus drivers, average citizens and terrorists for a Department of Homeland Security project. One part of the project was a series of humorous PSA’s designed to help raise security awareness among people who ride public transport. Props play an important role in any production. For this [...]

Jamie Lee Curtis

2010-10-13T13:11:41+00:00

When Tony Curtis passed away recently, we immediately thought of his daughter Jamie Lee Curtis and a project we did with her in 2005 – “Faces of a Children’s Hospital.”  Joe and George flew out to LA to record the voice-over with Jamie Lee for this documentary, but the night they arrived, her mother, Jennifer [...]

St. Lukes Old and New

2010-10-06T10:56:16+00:00

Taking something old and something new and bringing them both to life was the challenge for two projects for St. Luke’s Medical Center in 2004. It was the 100th anniversary of the hospital and they were about to open a huge new facility. Our job was to create videos that would celebrate both. So we [...]

Edermira’s Journey

2010-09-27T08:47:25+00:00

Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin approached us in 2003 about producing a documentary featuring a young Central American girl who was having her clubfeet surgically repaired in Milwaukee.  It sounded like a good story, however her treatment was already underway and we wouldn’t be able to shoot the story of her life in Nicaragua and her [...]

Rock-a-Bye Alert!!

2010-09-20T10:45:45+00:00

I knew I was going to like this project when we went to the first script meeting at the St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care on the south side of Milwaukee. What a great concept – combine an adult day care facility specializing in Alzheimer’s and dementia care with day care for children as young [...]
