    Just stumbled across a corporate piece we did a few years ago for Chick fil A and their employees. It's a simple idea of how we never know what all is going on in the lives of those around us.

    Was my first time getting to work with steadicam DP Dan Stillings along with Ben Smallbone of Radiate Films who directed and produced it. I supplied the camera equipment, my R1 and was DIT on the project. Shot in one single, long moving take.

    I like the way Ben put everything together and Dan's work was exemplary. I just felt sorry for his poor back after we had so many takes to get a decent one.

    Good job guys!

    This is something I often think about in public. There are so many stories in this whirlwind, so much happens.

    I thought you did a nice job, you got the heart of the story, I felt it.

    What a coincidence! One of my clients showed me this a couple of months ago because his bosses had seen it and really liked it. The video we ended up making was pretty different, with a jib arm and some dissolves, but it has some of the same feel.

    It is a very nice piece with a great message. To be clear, I was low man on the totem pole on this project. The concept and execution came from Chick fil A and Ben. They're the brains behind the project and I think they did an excellent job with it.

    Ok.....So, all the people who choose to eat at Chick fil A have horrendous back-stories?

    Perhaps if they ate a more healthy diet they could turn their lot in life around or avoid their living nightmares completely.

    Seriously,IMPO the only thing that was missing from this video was a postscript for the girl who " worked hard through high school and accepted to the college of her dreams" that said " 5 minutes from now, she will be run-over by a truck."

    Eat healthy, live longer. :)

    Enjoy!
    Never eaten there. I just thought it was a nice piece of work and no reason to throw cold water on it.
