We recently had a chance to use the @hollylandtech Solidcom headsets for wireless comms on set for the whole team. It was a game changer and allowed for seamless collaboration amongst department heads without having to push to talk. The easy flip up feature of the microphone on the headset to disable the mic was easy and convenient. We’re definitely aiming to make this a standard on certain sets for us going forward!

Finally able to share this video we produced for @morgan.stanley’s Retirement Planning group named Trailhead RPG.

When we heard the backstory to how they come upon their moniker it was a no brainer to shoot the b-roll scenes along the Appalachian Trail.

Check out this short corporate marketing piece, which was a fun one to shoot. Interviews took place in Chicago and hiking footage in PA.

Following up yesterday’s #tbt with a #fbf today because it’s been exactly two years since we shot this little spot for @livechairinc. It was the first shoot we did coming out of lockdown in 2020 and the subject matter couldn’t be more apropos. @livechairinc is harnessing the power of human ties to close the life expectancy gap of African Americans one barbershop at a time.

So cool to see Spork & Wentz] on a beer can. It started with a vision from @director_afr and @oatty2shoes and brought to life by @gee_toons, and we’re excited to see where the adventures of Spork & Wentz take us next.

If you’re not already following, check out the animated short form episodes over at Spork & Wentz] and see the hapless yet comical situations these two struggling musicians get into.

And if you need a break from this 80 degree heat, go and grab a few cold ones at @breweryars and @breweryars_fishtown!

Meet Cindy Pham!

Cindy joins us as an apprentice for the summer through our partnership with Big Picture Alliance] and their Media Futures apprenticeship program, a “10-month paid digital media workforce program that supports youth (ages 18-24) towards pursuing careers in film & media. Youth develop portfolios, career skills, and gain industry certifications through producing a “work-for-hire” with a community client under the mentorship of professionals. Alumni are then placed at 4-month paid apprenticeships with industry partners across Philadelphia.”

Cindy is a talented filmmaker moving up in the camera department with sights set on finding her stride as a DP. We’re super excited to have her on board and she’s already been crushing it in her first few weeks.

If you’re not already, go check out the great work Big Picture Alliance] is doing for our city’s youth in the film and video space. We’re excited and proud to partner with an organization that’s doing impactful work in our community and industry. 🙌🏽

We welcomed a new crop of bright, creative interns this week. Each class of summer interns have chosen a name for their cohort as they operate together for 2.5 months as a mini production company. Julien, Erin and Lucas aptly named themselves Square One Studios, or rather SOS. We’re excited to see them tackle their summer project and what else they have in store.

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.

Remember our post a few months ago about a film crew being in the store? Well here is the result.
