Hemmings House Golf Team
I hope that all who celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend had a great one and were able to spend time with the people you love!
The last two weeks at Hemmings House has been very QUIET, Why? Because we are everywhere but the office!
- Mark just got back from Calgary filming bobsled athletes as they train for the upcoming Olympics...fast and furious!
- Lauchlan just finished cutting four of our latest TV commercials with our friends at Hudson to be released very soon!
- Jen is in the tropics enjoying her honeymoon, congrats Jenny and David!
- Andrew just delivered the final episode of our MMA series, Cubicle to the Cage to our broadcaster radX…12 episodes of awesome!
- Steve and Greg just returned from a successful food & travel television shoot in Paris followed by a week of industry fun at MIPCOM in Cannes.
We have several events in October leading into November. Check out our new Events Calendar! Make sure you check it today because we have events and screenings starting THIS WEEK!!!
Our distributors sold two of our TV projects this week (Wrestling With Reality and Melting Lands) and we continue to pitch and sell regional stories that are relevant to the world.
As it is Thanksgiving weekend, I was thinking of how blessed we are to have such great supporters, customers and friends. Hemmings House has really grown into a bit of a culture of its own, a culture that attracts creative people, adventurous people, lovers of life and great story telling. I read a great blog post from Sociallogical’s Jeff Roach about being thankful to your supporters, it was perfectly fitting for my Thanksgiving weekend.
Featured Work at Hemmings House
In the spirit of thanksgiving I want to send a million props to our friends at Foursum.com ! They connected with us to film their latest commercial spot.
The Foursum guys have recently developed an awesome golf app that features tens of thousands of courses world wide, you gotta check out what these guys are developing! I had the pleasure of directing this spot alongside Steve and Jen producing with the visual brilliance of Lauchlan behind the lens.
JDI TV Spots
We had a ball working with Revolution Strategy and JD Irving again for yet another three television commercial spots. We are really proud of how these turned out. We even brought our ole’ friend Warren Sonoda from Toronto via LA to direct the series of ads again. (On another note keep an eye out for the Trailer Park Boys latest project Swearnet, Warren recently finished directing that gem as well!). Take a look at the campaign and three commercials here -http://www.justaskjdi.com
Blast to the Past
Hemmings House is celebrating a decade of doing business in Atlantic Canada. Every once in a while I like to reach back in the archives and watch films that we produced in our earlier years. As a huge Jack Kerouac fan, and as an even larger Brent Mason fan I particularly love this little half hour documentary we produced for CBC. If you haven’t seen this film yet, please do check it out, its alot of fun!
