The VH1 commercial I directed/animated/edited would not be possible without the help of a bunch of talented people.
Dax Monta, writer, producer, and the guy who gave me this opportunity in the first place. We’ve been wanting to work on something together for a long time. I had no idea it would be something as cool as this. I owe this guy a ton of thanks.
Erik Beck, set builder. You think that water cooler effect was cool? That’s just a little Erik Beck genius for ya.
Yejin Yoo, Art Dept. The ultra cool vh1 logo, the idea to put a plant in the shot (and then making it out of a creamer container), etc. etc. Yejin is gold I tell you!
Matt Gustafson and Jon Haller: Friends to the end. You guys put the A+ in PAs! Matt also took the lovely behind the scenes photo of all of us looking really serious above.
The folks at Northern lights post. Especially our audio engineer, Ted Gannon, who was able to cook up about 30,000 variations on that blender sound!
Steven Mosley, for picking up where Dax left off for the last leg of this thing.
And last, but not least…The guy who “completes me”
Matt Sanchez, director of photography, legend.
* Also wanna thank Justin Johnson for letting me do stop motion commercials for Next New Networks last year. If it wasn’t for the work I did for him, this probably wouldn’t have happened. And to my roommate Kyle, who often allowed our kitchen to become a puppet set for said commercials.
Thank you thank you thank you. It’s really swell to work with so many talented people.
