Winner of a Gold Addy in “Elements of Advertising-Cinematography” at the 2013 Western Virginia Addy Awards.
A great example of what can be done on a small budget, a cheap camera with vintage lenses, home made jib, engaging script, and interesting real life people.
“The Culture of Silver Seas PR” was done as a launch video for Silver Seas PR in Roanoke Virginia. The goal was to come up with something that was not corporate in nature and could be a stand-alone piece with a message of its own not connected to any corporate entity. We succeeded!
Since Silver Seas PR is a company that helps cultural creatives get media coverage, we decided to define “Culture”. Marty Thau of Red Star Records, wrote the script and is in the video as well. The idea behind the cinematography for this piece was to use aggressive camera movements, interesting angles, and edgy editing to show creatives doing what they do, where they do it.
The entire cast is made up of creatives from all around the United States. The founder of the company is from England.
