I know it’s cliche as hell but damn I’ve been busy. Like wake up early to do some work, go to work, come home and work kinda busy. Which is why I’m a little bit behind on the blog updates. But it’s all good stuff! So let’s just take advantage of my tardiness and pretend like it’s a stunning Summer day in August when I worked on this amazing video project that I’ve been dying to share with you.
Earlier in the Summer my photographer pal Maya told me she wanted to start doing more motion work and was wondering if I was interested in styling a video with her and some other creative peeps. The theme was a dinner at dusk with friends on a Summer eve. My answer was yup, yes, hell yeah.
I immediately thought of my favourite wine people, Kendall-Jackson Wineries, as a perfect fit for this project and they jumped on board which was amazing for everyone involved. They were such a natural fit that it wasn’t really a hard sell and they gave us complete creative freedom. They’re what dreams are made of when it comes to clients and collaborators. Cheers to that!
So let’s start with the end. After about 4 weeks of scrambling and the efforts of a talented team, we pulled together this beautiful video that just makes you salivate for Summer…and a glass of wine. You can hardly forget about the heat. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t adore the long, colorful and hot days spent with friends. Of course, the heat is more manageable when you have an air conditioner, like the kind found at https://www.airnationalhvac.com/, to help when it does get scorching!
Isn’t it sweet? Did I forget to mention that I have a cameo? Hey, we were on a budget and some of our ‘actors’ bailed on us the day of (the nerve!).
Last but definitely not least, thanks to Kendall-Jackson Wines for their sponsorship and support and giving us the freedom to flex our creative muscles. Be sure to visit their blog to check out all the delicious recipes.
Cheers to long summers and late nights!
