Well, I know of no better way to start the weekend off right than with this awesome new video for Arctic Monkeys’ song “The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala”. Click the pic to view the video.
This piece was directed by Focus Creeps and edited by Foundation’s Gladys Bernadac. It was lensed over the course of a few months at various iconic locations in Los Angeles, their Hollywood Paladium show, our LA stage and even includes footage shot in Sheffield, at the band’s homecoming concert. If you are an Arctic Monkeys fan, this video is a treat not to be missed!

In Los Angeles, James Lipetzky directed a piece for United Way of Orange County. Shot over five days on location in Orange County, Foundation’s Evan Cohen pulled double duty on this shoot as both Line Producer and AD.
The shoot culminated with 50 people on the beach in Newport Beach. James Lipetzky commented; “I was deeply moved by some of the stories I encountered while on this shoot, of those helped by United Way. The work they do to help those in need really is exceptional.” Stay tuned for more on this piece in the future!

Foundation’s Anna Patel directed and edited a series of web docs to support the launch of Current TV’s 4TH AND FOREVER which premieres Thursday, May 26th at 9/8c.
The series follows the storied Long Beach Polytechnic High School football team as they tackle the 2010 season. Poly has graduated more NFL players than any other high school in America. We sat down with a few alumni to learn what makes this such a successful football program. The first clip features Marcedes Lewis (Poly ’02) of the Jacksonville Jaguars and premiered on ESPN.com.

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.

Sultry singer/songwriter, KD Lang has a sexy new track called “I, Confess”, off her new album Sing It Loud, which debuts in April.
Focus Creeps recently directed the video, which was edited by Anna Patel. It premiered today on PerezHilton.com and is already an instant hit! Click the pic to check it out!
The track is beyond hot and Ms. Lang’s voice has never sounded more rich. I know I’m probably biased because it’s our video, but seriously… I would give this video four thumbs up if I had another set of hands!
