Great shoot with for DAT Freight and Analytics.
You’d think finding a place to pull U turns with a big rig would be tough, but our boy Eddie came through hard.

New work released today for

This project was written almost 2 years ago and finally came together and into production in February 2021.

USPS not only lost the super 8 camera I ordered for this project, but 20 rolls of film that were to be delivered several days before the shoot. Ended up driving through LA to pick up film and made our way to Arizona. The camera I borrowed for the shoot couldn’t turn the modern film at a consistent frame rate or for very long so I was only able to shoot 5-10 seconds at a time. It felt like it was all going to fall apart.

I immediately got the film processed and scanned, and to my relief I had plenty of performance to work with even though off speed inconsistent frame rate was going to be a nightmare to sync.

Months later the narrative came together and then I ordered 50 rolls of mystery family film on eBay. Luckily there was gold on the rolls and it all came together!

Thanks to my few crew/cast members who were a part of making this possible!

releasing their new video “Slow Down” today that we created for them. This is about as crafty as you can get on a shoot. Recycled sets from previous shoots and a grip and electric package “handheld 1200 lumen flashlights” from Walmart + haze, photo strobes and polaroids. All in all it was a success I must say!
Thanks to my sidekick for sticking this one out and our massive crew aka and for not dying in the heat. Check out Slow Down at Vimeo.com/Apairus or the Deadbeat Cousins YouTube channel

More stills from and our new video Later Baby, XO.

The audience aspect of the video was something we were really excited to shoot but worried about actually accomplishing. We had the main portion of the video shot, had shipped out our film to have it processed and shipped back, and we’re dying to start the edit due to our approaching deadline. We really needed all of the elements of the video to begin the edit so we had to put this portion of the shoot together in about a day. We reached out to and they got us set up with some great talent last minute. After that the concern was locations. Good ole networking and Facebook came through hard on this. Our b cam op/AC put us in touch with and they let us come in that day to scout. The next day we shot it all, luckily getting a twofer at thunderbird with the bar and living room backdrop. Our super 8 film landed that day while we were shooting and the following day the edit began with basically one week on the clock to edit. Thanks to my boy for collaborating both on set and in front of the monitor!

Here’s a labor of love, blood, sweat, and teary sleepy eyes from all night writing/eding sessions. 😉

Client came to us with the track on a Saturday, script/concept approved the following day, and shot the video 4 days later. Concept to completion in under 3 weeks time with 2 different shoot days on both film and digital. What a ride!

Goes to show you if you have the right team anything can be accomplished. Look for your name in the credits you wonderful people 🙂

Feel free to ask any questions and enjoy!
