Star Tours Opening

By May 21, 2011 geekery, Orlando, Photography, The Daily Buzz

I’ve been working on lots of Disney-related promotions this past week, with all of it culminating around the grand re-opening of the Star Tours ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Here’s a few of the shot I snapped this morning, both with my SLR and iPhone.

Video: HeadDrama Promo Vignettes

By May 3, 2011 Promos, The Daily Buzz

Yesterday we launched our latest website: HeadDrama.com“Your survival guide for solving mental emergencies and taking control of drama in your everyday life”. I’ve been busily working with the team to get content organized, get the layout and site functionality up to spec, and do the marketing thing. Here’s a few demo promos for the site that I created last fall, mainly for internal and corporate marketing purposes. These people are quite frustrated.



Not sure if these will be used for anything (as I’ve got some crazy promos on the way), but it’s nice to just get them out in the open.

I love my new ring flash!

By April 18, 2011 Photography, The Daily Buzz

Here’s some test shots of my badass crew at work, using the new ringflash adapter I got from Photojojo. Basically, I just turned off the studio lights, except for the “bubblescape,” and fired away. [Photography nerds keep reading: The ring flash prevented the slaved ‘hair light’ flash from working, and I couldn’t use a pocket wizard, or else ring flash wouldn’t fit. It was an ‘off’ situation all around, but worked out well in the end. The only thing that I don’t like is that some purple luminance that bled through the bubblescape on some takes.]

Promo: Kia & Andy – “Wardrobe Malfunction”

By February 4, 2011 Promos, The Daily Buzz

I helped Producer Brad put together this piece of hilarity which he wrote/directed – which feeds out to stations on Tuesday. We have multiple versions of the same spot, with various explanations and tag lines, but I kinda like the understated (and weird) version best.

Today I earned my “Explorer Stars!”

By August 4, 2010 Orlando, The Daily Buzz

This morning I took a break from my php coding and internet strategery to save the world (yet again). Diego was out sick, so instead I teamed-up with Kai Lan and Dora The Explorer to go on an adventure. We did some counting, organized shapes and colors, and then KILLED THE LAST UNICORN. All of this ended with a cheerful music number, followed by shots of Barenjager.

Ok, not really. Dora and Kai Lan actually came by the Daily Buzz studio this morning to promote their touring Nickelodeon show. We brought in Eliza, so that she could meet her idols. They were super-friendly (as expected) and were accompanied by a large bouncer/stylist. My daughter waved goodbye to them from inside our office as I snapped a final shot of them getting into a towncar – not onto a Pegasus, which is banned from the Full Sail parking lots. It sorta looks like TMZ was following Dora around town, right?
