Andrew Spear & theDBZ Mural

My boss really let me go all out when redesigning The Daily Buzz studio. We don’t have a huge budget, so it’s very DIY. I rolled the dice and hired my favorite Orlando artist (and now friend) Andrew Spear to ninja-punch our bare studio wall into something spectacular.

Promo: “Mornings”

By July 23, 2012 Promos, The Daily Buzz

We needed to get some generic promos shot for stations RIGHT AWAY, but did not yet have our new set, new graphics, or any show clips available. Luckily, I was able to get into Full Sail Live at the last minute to use the giant LCD wall as a backdrop. From behind the camera, I shouted pages of wild lines at them. They all have huge personalities, so this all came together rather easily.

The Daily Buzz: Season 11 preview

By July 17, 2012 Orlando, Promos, The Daily Buzz

Work has been insane lately. We’ve been on the trajectory ever since the decision was made to re-brand the show, which means a new look, a strong brand position, and – as you’ll see from the video below – new anchors.

Here’s a featurette that I made last week (with the help of my marketing minions, Vinny and Morgahn), showcasing the new talent lineup – which officially became public today.

Not only are they a really hood looking bunch, they’re all really funny and incredibly smart. (This is in NO WAY an slam on the previous hosts, whom I wish nothing but the best of luck in their future endeavors.)

Michelle & Pirate Mac
I had another promo shoot at Disneyworld this week, and took a few snaps of Michelle and her “pirate mentor” Mac. She was a real trooper, nailing a paragraph pf promo lines in one take, and walking across the entire park for another set-up (though we did a wheelchair on standby if she wanted it).

It’s been a tough work week, cruising in the Caribbean doing live shots from the deck of the deck of the Disney Fantasy. We just got back yesterday, and here’s a few pics! [Update: somehow my blog was broken and this didn't actually post when I wrote it.]

This shot will make all the Disney Vinylmation nerds jealous…

This is a spec commercial I shot/produced for our Boston CW affiliate. It was for a sales presentation they had with Dunkin’ Donuts.- It never aired anywhere, and I thought it would be fun to share – I matched the look of a similar campaign.

Opposite of Wardrobe Malfunction

By July 25, 2011 Orlando, The Daily Buzz

Here’s a few snaps form the studio this morning as the gang tapes a segment for GalTime TV with local fashion blogger sensation, J’s Everyday Fashion. She just walked in cold this morning and blasted through a number of segments, with ease (Which figures, as she stars in her own web show on iZon Orlando).



I’ve been meeting a ton of local blogger lately, and whenever I get the chance, I’m going to snap some pics of them in action.

Promo: “We Love Social Media!”

By July 21, 2011 Promos, The Daily Buzz

With the recent unveiling of Google+, and the resulting online fervor, I decided to finally bang out a social media promo with the anchor team. I’ve been meaning to do one for a while now. As they started listing off all the virtual real estate we inhabit, it began to take on a like of its own.

The above version is customized for My-20 in Denver, – the example worked better with station branding).

Promo: “Take On Your Day”

By July 21, 2011 Promos, The Daily Buzz

I’ve been incredibly busy lately in the editing kitchen, cooking up some tasty promo entrees. (Okay, the cooking analogies end here). Here are two of the most recent promos distributed to all the stations this week. The first, being a rebranding the show’s old/new anchor team and fast-paced news style. We’re starting from the ground up, and explaining what the show is all about.

The version above is the stripped-down, generic version that Buzz stations all over can customize with logos and appropriate show time-slot information.
