Foundation Editor Suzie Moore and Sr. Assistant Editor B Stover recently entered a Make an Ad contest for Sally Hansen… and WON a top spot among the finalists! The brand purchased their spot, along with 5 others, for use in an upcoming campaign. Brittany “B” says, “We entered the contest because we wanted to make beauty products appealing in a new and different way.” Click the pic to view the spot!
B and Suzie co-directed “Salon Effects Fashion Show” and shot it on the stage at Foundation Content. “Being a part of the directing process was so satisfying because it allowed me to see the whole idea come to life!”, says B. “I wasn’t even sure if we were going to go through with shooting the idea at first, but when I saw the script that B wrote, there was no choice but to film it!”, Suzie continues.
B and Suzie collaborated on the editorial and graphics for the spot – Check it out here!

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.

Take a look!
The videos are part of a series called “Ever Higher”. The series features sports titans Julius Erving, Michael Jordan and a handful of sports and cultural influencers including Freddie Gibbs, and Mick Boogie. Anna did a great job on the cut and our own Jesse Willis assisted with graphics on this project.

This past December, James Lipetzky Directed a spot for Draft FCB for Hampton Hotels. The piece was shot on our stage and featured a rather unique public figure… Joseph Odhiambo. Joe holds the world record for dribbling basketballs.
Tom Pastorelle, who is no stranger to the Hampton brand, edited this spot and the graphics featured the handiwork of Jason Voke and Curt Cooper. “It was a fun shoot” says James, “Joe was high energy and that pumped up every one on the crew – and I think that energy is evident in the final piece”
The spot is a lot of fun and yes… no special effects here… Joe, like Hampton, is the real deal.
