Michelle Sutter Interview with Arnold Donald

We’re happy to share another great interview conducted by Michelle Sutter of Holland America Line — this time with Arnold Donald, President & CEO of Carnival Corporation — filmed, produced and edited by our team at Eric Allen Productions. Arnold shares his insights on the cruise industry during the pause, and acknowledges the amazing contributions of the officers, crew and shoreside teams of all the cruise brands under the Carnival umbrella. Check out the greeting Arnold received from crew when he stepped onboard Princess Cruises’ Majestic Princess, on its first cruise in 500 days. Very moving. It’s always fun to be around Arnold Donald, the most approachable and personable CEO around.
Great job, Michelle!

Gavin MacLeod Tribute

There’s no bigger honor for me as a video professional than to be given the opportunity to create a tribute video for someone I respect. It is so fulfilling to craft the video into something that showcases a well-lived life. I did it for both my parents when they passed, and viewing them again continues to give me smiles and solace in their absence.

When Gavin MacLeod’s health was slipping, Princess Cruises asked me to review our materials and prepare an appropriate tribute to acknowledge Gavin’s role as “Love Boat’s” Captain Stubing and the difference he has made for millions of TV fans and Princess guests. I uncovered a 2015 interview we did with Gavin at Princess’ 50th Anniversary cruise — with the entire “Love Boat” cast — which we had not used at the time. I hadn’t remembered what he said other than recalling he was thrilled to spend time with his TV daughter, Jill Whelan, and the rest of the Love Boat cast, all of whom have remained close throughout the years. (It was a JOY to spend that cruise with them!)

Gavin was a man who was incredibly generous with his love, time, and attention. He took pictures with literally every person who wanted to chat with him and showed genuine interest in his fans. He was a man of God, so my ears perked up when at the end of the interview he said, “I have a lot to thank God for, and a lot to thank Princess Cruises for. They both keep me afloat.” The perfect end quote!

Once finished, I set the piece aside for a few days, as Gavin's health remained uncertain. Then I popped wide awake one night with an AHA MOMENT -- “How will the real captains of the Princess Cruises fleet honor Gavin when he passes? They’ll TOOT THE SHIP’S WHISTLE!"

I’ve spent many hours on the bridges of cruise ships and count dozens of Princess captains, officers, and crew as friends. They ALL love to show off their ships, now featuring fancy new whistles which play the “Love Boat” theme. There's no bigger honor than to toot the ship's whistle, as Capt. Heikki Laakkonen has shown in his own post!

So I searched and combined actual recordings of Regal Princess’s whistle in Boston and Sky Princess’s whistle in Cozumel into one beautiful stereophonic tribute to Gavin, which plays while Gavin’s endplate is displayed at the end of the piece. When Gavin passed on May 29, the piece was polished and ready, WITH the whistle. If you don’t tear up a tiny bit at the end, then I didn’t do my job right.

Thanks to Brian O’Connor & Negin Kamali at Princess for including me and Andrea Stockert as part of your cruising family. What an honor it was to know Gavin. Julie Benson and Karen Candy were lucky enough to spend many years working with Gavin on Princess projects. As Jill says, “He was a Custodian of Love,” spreading love and happiness to all. What an inspiration -- to be nice and decent and generous to people you meet -- and a great way to be remembered!

Andrea Stockert and I are pleased to share the fund-a-need video we produced for Carousel Ranch, an equestrian therapy charity for special needs kids in Santa Clarita. While riding on the back of a horse, kids with autism, cerebral palsy and other conditions, are challenged in unique ways, giving them a sense of independence and freedom that defies their disability. Their Ready to Work Program helps prepare young adults with special needs for what's next after high school.

Carousel Ranch is sponsored by the Princess Cruises Foundation, and Eric Allen Productions is proud to have given our time and efforts for the second year to support the ranch's fundraising efforts. Last month's Heart of the West Event raised $325,000!

Join us in giving your support to a cause that's touched the hearts of many! Click on DONATE at www.carouselranch.org

Congratulations to Carousel Ranch's Denise Tomey Redmond and Becky Graham for a landmark year of making a difference in the lives of kids. And many thanks to our pal, Julie Benson, for including us in another of her many passions!

MAJESTIC PRINCESS PREVIEW CRUISE

I want to thank and acknowledge the talented team of professionals who worked with us in Italy for the launch of Majestic Princess, the latest ship from Princess Cruises. This floating work of art was built in Monfalcone, Italy, to home port in Shanghai, China. On this preview cruise from the shipyard, the ship was filled with Chinese travel agents, media and key influencers, so many interviews were conducted in Mandarin.
We filmed a 7-day grid of activites from 9 am to midnight and also captured footage of ALL the venues of the new ship. Thousands of precious moments were funneled into digital post production on two computer edit stations in adjacent stateroom suites, working nearly round the clock to pull off our deadline.
The night before our departure in Rome, we handed off 158 USB drives created while onboard, including ship footage and the edited segment you see below, which travel agents and media took home with them to China, to talk about and promote Majestic Princess and her luxurious ammenities.
MILLE GRAZIE to this hard-working team -- Andrea Stockert (co-exec. producer/camera), Nancy Lynne Goodell (producer), Lawrence Elbert (camera), Marcus DiPaola (camera/producer in Mandarin), Brandon Riley Miller (camera), Puxan Chawla Bhowmick (gimbal-camera/food-shot magician), Ni Fan & Annie Giang (extremely talented editors, in Mandarin or any language!) and Haohao Yan (production support/Mandarin interviewer). And me? I had a chance to watch this team in action and got the opportunity to shoot the mother of all drone shots -- a new cruise ship on her maiden cruise, sitting BY ITSELF (!) in a picturesque European port. THRILLING! Thank you to Brian P O'Connor and his team at Princess for including us in another thrilling project and life adventure! My company motto is "Work hard and have fun while doing it!" The MAJESTIC PRINCESS PREVIEW CRUISE definitely fit the bill! #comebacknew #majesticprincess

Social media storytelling: Do you have life insurance in place that would protect your family if a catastrophe took the life of your family’s chief money-maker?

Our friends at Allstate Insurance asked Eric Allen Productions to produce a video that would tell that sort of story in a heart-warming and somewhat fast-paced light-hearted way. So, we spent two days with Jolynn Beck, a real-life Allstate customer in Albuquerque, New Mexico, whose husband, Justin, died in a hunting accident. Thanks to his forethought — with the help of Allstate Agent, Jalene Berger — Jolynn and her young daughter, Kayleigh, remained financially stable after the tragic death.

Does your insurance agent know your needs? “Who Knows Jolynn?” demonstrated that a good insurance agent keeps up to date on the milestones in the lives of his or her customers … a new home, a new car, boat or snowmobile, a new baby, or even a death in the family.
