Though it’s been unusually cool in Chicago these days, our L.A. office has been heating up. Check out this latest project we worked on with the folks from High Wide and Handsome. Working with Production Company Chromatic Films and director James Tooley, we put together these spoof Weather forecast spots for “Rift”, a new video game by Trion. These are the web spots but they also finished for Broadcast and are airing on SyFy, FX, and G4!
Anna Patel edited all the spots while Jamin Clutcher handled the graphics. Color by Tom Rovak, audio mix by Ryan Pribyl, and produced by Stacy Paris; as always, a true team effort from our brilliant staff.

Our resident comedian and assistant editor, Zoran Gvojic recently did a recut of the newest Indiana Jones movie, Crystal Skull. He says, “The piece came from a place of love. I have such a love for the character of Indiana Jones. I have played through countless terrible video games, and read awful comics just because Indy was in them”. Though the piece is a spoof, I have to say…he does have a point…pertaining to one scene in parrticular. I know it’s hard to pick out the one scene that doesn’t make any sense in that movie, but try… it’s the SUPER obvious one…
“I originally started this project to see if I could make a better version of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I actually wanted to try and edit the entire feature film down to what I saw in my head. Obviously that wouldn’t be a good web video so I opted to give indy a more honorable death, that the fans could respect more than the requisite film. I’m very proud of how everything turned out and want to thank Jeff Landsman for his suggestions and Erik, Steven, and Jordan for their help with skeleton.” -Zoran

We recently screened our new content reel for agency SPM. Although we already have a strong relationship with the agency on the editorial side, we wanted to highlight our efficiency at bundling post and production together without sacrificing quality.
Over 20 SPM employees attended including creative directors Bob Konald, Dave Paulus and Rick Conrad. As an added bonus, we did a live demo at presentation where we interviewed SPM partners Larry Margolis, Gary Storandt and other principals for an SPM promotional video.
SPM does a lot of work with hospitals, which means they have to work around doctor’s schedules. We were able to illustrate live how easy it was for our nimble crew to set up an interview on the fly, in a tight space and still have it look great!
