Latest Two Commercials and Events!

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 CalendarMake 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

Foursum

Foursum – Unlock Your Game from Hemmings House on Vimeo.

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

Grave Concerns: Jack Kerouac from Hemmings House on Vimeo.

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!

Fall is Blasting by Fast with Events & Screenings

It’s October already!!!

Fall is blasting by fast, but that’s not such a bad thing for those of us who can’t wait for the mountains of New England to get covered with snow for another ski season…right? One of the reasons September has gone by so fast for Hemmings House is because we have all had our nose to the grindstone creating cool films and photography for cool clients.

We are proud to showcase some of our work, so if you have time over your coffee break take a scroll through and watch a few videos that we have produced recently, and also learn about some of the other things we are up to. As I write this blog and emailer I am flying from Toronto to Paris to shoot a pilot for our latest TV series. I am also very excited to watch our very own Andrew MacCormack’s short film Here and Away on Air Canada’s enRoute In Flight Television! If you are flying Air Canada be sure to check it out! 

Steve and I will also be continuing down the coast to Cannes to attend MIPCOM, the world’s leading broadcast industry convention, and I apologize in advance for any Instagram photos we send of us enjoying wine and baguettes beachside on the Mediterranean!
