5 Guys. 4 Countries. 10 Days.
This may have been our favorite shoot of all time. We decided to shoot a pilot for a series to be called “Europe Right Now” and on July 4, 2002 Jim Paul, Vinnie Besasie, Joe Liberatore, Brian Minton and I left Milwaukee for London to start shooting.
London – Italian Riviera – Monaco – Tain-Hermitage, France – Paris As you can imagine, the shoot was more fun than we could have hoped. Here’s the trailer:
