My Newest Commercial wins 2012 i-Date Award

My friend and partner at Mad Flower Creative, James DiFiore, holds the 2012 i-Date Award for best marketing campaign. Awarding us this honor for our brilliant commercial is not the only way the i-Date’s have shown poise and intelligence. For example… they cut off the top of James’ head because his massive, idea-based, genius, brain makes a weird pulsing vein appear across his skull in all photos. Very distracting. Good call i-Date staff!!

See the super-short version of our zany, yet oddly realistic commercial below, now at almost 40,000 hits on YouTube.

Not bad…. for a muffin!!!

iHook-Up Commercial

My first non-radio commercial
This project ended up being a fun surprise and my best work so far.. even though it required little from me voice wise, i ended up becoming a major part of this production team.
A few commercials were pitched to the client here and of those picked, the first was mostly voice work over images. So… Jay gets hired for a sweet voice gig. Yaaaay, all is happy in the world. Then at the last minute the client picks a different commercial to be the first produced. with no voice work. But… being as the director was in New Jersey at the time, he asked me to take the helm of… well, pretty much everything.
Since the clients wishes are LAW…i began creating a casting call and hitting the ground to find appropriate locations for both casting and filming, renting those locations, finding make-up and on-set crew, all within 4 days. Although the casting company did awesome, one of my personal non-union invites was chosen as a final cast member, which made it all seem that much more made to be.
So… all went well and one handy dandy Producer credit later, turned out there was some voice work to be done after all.
See if you notice me at the end 😉
