A cool docuseries project we worked on for @strava last summer was just posted this week and we couldn't be more stoked to share. It was a pleasure working with @cutmedia as the local production support to capture footage for this Segment Series, featuring Strava users all over the world. This led us to meet @richardissa and help tell his story as well as highlight the great work @issaruncrew is doing with their Monday Night Therapy run meetups in Philly.

With Cut Media’s director in the UK, we utilized @teradek technology to get our frames up to the web in the middle of a running trail with no power or WiFi in site, and the UK team was able to conduct the interview and direct remotely.

Check out the link in our bio for the full piece and head on over to @strava’s account for the teaser.

This past fall, we had the opportunity to produce a series of videos for the City of Philadelphia through their Vision Zero program which has the goal of eliminating all traffic-related deaths and severe injuries, while increasing safety, health, and mobility for all.

The videos were for an initiative called Safe Routes Philly, which is Philadelphia’s youth bicycle and pedestrian safety education program and provides transportation safety education, educator training, and resources for communities.

This video demonstrates the proper ways for parents to teach their children about bike safety.

We can't let the year come to a close without mention of "Between the Hammer," a show that we've been working on for the last few months with @jellysmack . The show focuses on the intersection of woodworking & pop culture, featuring makers creating one of a kind pop-culture inspired pieces out of wood, metal, and upcycled items.

It's been amazing to meet so many talented woodworkers and artists who allowed us into their shops and braved being in front of the camera. Check out the show on @youtube and @facebookapp to catch episodes that feature projects ranging from a Baby Yoda baby’s rattle and Harry Potter's wand to Thor's Hammer and a GoT Sword Throne replica, to a life size Angry Birds slingshot and Grateful Dead inspired book shelf.

Shoutout to the stellar crew that has been grinding on these shoots under the leadership of lead producer @macmakesfilms 🙌🏽

For our last Project Forte of 2021, we sat down with Artina Nimpson (@artinamichelledp), and talked about the creative process and running towards fear to find growth in the uncomfortable spaces. Check out the link in bio to hear her story.

Whether you’ve been following from the start or just jumping in, we hope that the Project Forte initiative has been as beneficial for our readers and audience as it has been for us. There is more spotlight and intentionality than ever on diversity in cinema and we hope this platform has only added to those conversations in a positive way by highlighting the incredible stories of resilience, work ethic, and artistry of those who have been gracious enough to share their stories with us. Interested or have a person that would be a good fit? Email or DM us to touch base!

Lastly, big shout out to @krismendozadotcom and @feheraoh for being the one-two punch in getting these stories out. It has been an enlightening process and looking forward to more in the new year.

“On the Rebound” • There is nothing more inspiring than stories of resiliency. Such is true with NBA Hall of Famer, Alonzo Mourning, whose dominant career briefly came to an abrupt stop when he was dealt the news that he was suffering from a rare kidney disease.

ICYMI: we won another Emmy!!!

Thankful for the stellar crew that put their heart and soul into this video, and a big thank you to @autisarianhq and @theholodec for allowing and trusting us with telling this story. The story of The Autisarians is an inspiring tale of a father who had to find a way to connect with his two autistic sons, and by doing so, was able to help them reveal their hidden super powers.

Check out the full feature on the that we produced earlier this season for FTW Philly with @nerdstreet and see how VR is being used in the realm of autism.

She will transition from leading our Post Production Department for the last 3 years and will now oversee our newly minted and growing creative team. We’re excited to lead our projects with a strong sense of creative and visual storytelling and could not think of a more deserving person for the role. Congrats, Jo!

Some frames and BTS from our summer interns’ (@christocchetfilms, @carbstheking & @erinrosej_) final project. This summer, between being on multiple shoots and projects, they got to work with a real client to produce a video from start to finish, from pitching and conceptualization, pre-production, filming, and post.

Their deliverable was a promo & fundraising video for a startup and with the guidance of our team, they wrote scripts, hired talent, negotiated and locked locations, and managed production and gear. The not only got to get their hands on all aspects production but also the nuances of client interaction.

In the end, the client was super happy with the finished product and it was a great win-win-win all around.

While it was a whirlwind of a summer with Covid restrictions and a half opened office, we’re glad to have had our interns join us and we wish them well as the new school year starts!

Interested in our internship program? Shoot us an email at [email protected] with your info!

We are excited to unveil our brand mark today. With this new visual, we aim to reflect the evolution of our work as we continue to push ourselves creatively with bigger and bolder projects. This will not replace our logo but rather be a complementary graphic that we hope conveys our core ideas and values as a brand. With one hand leading with a baton and the other hand receiving, we show the careful balance of “give and take” with creative collaboration…and with one hand flexed and the other relaxed we convey the hard and soft tensions through the yin and yang of innovation and control. The conductor metaphor has been pervasive through the Maestro brand and drives home our aspiration of being a market leader in our industry.

Thanks to @mikeskiths and @truehandsociety for the design!!

Until the next musical comes along, this evergreen tennis shoot with director Geoff Nichols and Maestro Filmworks will have to do.
Remember our post a few months ago about a film crew being in the store? Well here is the result. We had the privilege of being a small part in this piece on NBC Sports' FTW Philly show about our good customers Kirsten and Tenny. (Such a small part that they spelled my last name wrong 🤣 ) Thanks again to Maestro Filmworks for coming and shooting in the store. https://youtu.be/5ksc-p9sNak?t=976
So this just happened! Andrew Czudak of Maestro Filmworks asked if I could soundtrack a segment for FTW Philly, and it just aired on NBC Sports Philadelphia!! Thanks to the Maestro team for inviting me to be a part of such a fun piece! 🎶🎮🎛️🕹️🎵
