Just For Laughs

Where were you yesterday at 1:30 pm (Central)? Well… if you were in Chicago’s Millennium Park, you may have seen an outrageously awesome social experiment organized by Tyler Walker, of Improv Everywhere  in conjunction with TBS. As a publicity stunt to kick off the Just for Laughs event on TBS this week, an “MP3 Experiment” took place that lasted about 30 minutes. Participants were told to download a song via their respective mp3 players. Utilizing one DVC Pro HD and a couple of flip cams, various shooters captured this hilarious footage.

Suzie Moore edited the footage together and Megan Guerrant produced. They wrapped at about 11:30 lastnight and it’s live today! Talk about a quick turn around. I think my favorite part has to be when this “mysterious voice” actually got a mob of people to use their finger’s as moustaches! Brilliant!

Stumpfified

We are pleased to welcome Editor Christina Stumpf to the Foundation family! Christina brings her intuition and passion for storytelling to the team, after a ten year run at the Whitehouse. Drawn to diverse material, she’s cut campaigns across genres for such brands as Miller, Orbitz, Cadillac, Sears, and Office Max, for whose web video “Jewelry” was shortlisted at Cannes.

Stumpf’s long form credits include,”Hidden in Plain Sight”, a documentary in collaboration with UN Goodwill Ambassador Julia Ormond; “Hidden in Plain Sight”, with the support of former President Clinton, has helped raise over $1 million to promote awareness and help eradicate human trafficking worldwide.

President Samantha Hart adds, “We are thrilled that Christina has joined us and are looking forward to her playing both a creative and leadership role at our company.” Welcome Christina, we all look forward to working with you!

Foundation L.A. EXPANDS!!

As most of you know, we opened an L.A. office last year in Santa Monica. Well, we officially signed the lease for our brand new space just this week!!

Our new address?

3583 HAYDEN AVE on the Hayden Tract in Culver City!

Just over 6,000 square feet, the space will have a 30ft x 30ft shooting stage as well as editorial bays and production areas including a mezzanine floor.

In true California style, the space makes use of three garage door roll-ups that spill out onto the expansive patio adorned by an architectural cactus garden suspended above.

Our L.A. studio currently houses award winning editor Jonathan Del Gatto, partner/co-founder James Lipetzky and up and comer Anna Patel.  In addition, music video lensers Focus Creeps, will also be on the roster in Los Angeles.  Stacy Paris produces.

While Foundation’s Los Angeles office is currently housed in Santa Monica digs, the new space should be ready by early December.

Del Gatto Soars for United!

Foundation director, Jonathan Del Gatto, was in Chicago this week for a shoot for United Airlines along with his LA producer Stacy Paris.  Clients from Barrie D’Rozario Murphy flew in from Minneapolis to oversee the production while editing was being handled simultaneously down the hall with James Lipetzky.  Team work!!

Moore Is Our Champion

Senior Assistant Editor, Suzie Moore, recently submitted a piece to the Splice Capades and placed as First runner up! If you are not familiar, Splice Capades is an annual competition in which assistant editors show off their editing chops by “splicing” two different films together to create a :90 trailer! This year’s mash-up featured the films “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and “Network”.

Suzie says of the experience, “I just love Steve Carrell so when I watched the movies I knew I wanted to do something funny with him as the main character. It was a lot of fun to put together. As first runner up I won a blu-ray player!” Her trailer is absolutely hilarious, so be sure to check it out at the link above!!

There were 25 entries from assistants in Chicago. We’re proud of Suzie every day – this is just “splicing” on the cake!
