Dell Rugged Tablet 2 - Baydelta Maritime

This is one of my productions at Dell that I'm the most proud of.  It wasn't the biggest budget, but it was a stellar and small team, working with an amazing customer.  Baydelta Maritime granted us full access to their crew for 3 days.  We flew drones, played captain, and told a great story.  

Baydelta Maritime chose Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme Tablets because in the high traffic and harsh conditions of the San Francisco Bay, failure is unacceptable.

Dell Gaming Upper Funnel

I produced this, and coming soon, a number of versions for an upper funnel campaign to showcase Dell's gaming hardware lineup.

Yesterday, my video is playing on the masthead and as of this morning it has over 4 million views!

This production was a large scale coordination.  We worked with Anonymous Content from LA and Director John X. Carey and Jason McCormick as our Director of Photography.  Leslie Owen was our Producer from Anonymous and she was so awesome.  Local production in Mexico City was facilitated by Spectrum Films Mexico.  Custom music was composed by Justin Tapp of Group Therapy. Post Production was handled by Cut + Run and they couldn't have been better to work with.  

Check out our production in Mexico City.

We have more Dell Gaming spots rolling out and I will be adding them here.  

Don't just play.  Game. 

Silver ADDY for Dell Precision Rugged Tablet

I was honored this week to be recognized with a Silver Addy for my work as a Co-Producer showcasing the Dell Precision Rugged Tablet, along with a tremendous @DellBlue team.  Shot over a week in Alaska, the Dell Blue Photo and Video team knocked it out of the park.

You can see the work we did in the 2 videos below, really thought these turned out great.

Hello, World!

This is a production I am extremely proud of.  In my experience, one of the most challenging videos to pre-produce, but also one of the most well executed.  Cheers!

Award winners @icekuhler and @steve4ustin at #atxaddys. Cheers to us!

The Ross Boys on the Zilker Zephyr

This weekend was so nice, I decided to take the boys to Zilker, right when we got there the train was pulling away.  

None of us had risen it before, so we hopped on.  Thatcher wanted to be a big boy and refused to sit in my lap, only on the seat like his big brother.  He even kept pushing my arm and hand away when I wrapped it around him.

Arlo's biggest concern was if there would be a tunnel.  He loved fearing the thing.  Think it was related to a Planes scene where Dusty tries to fly through a tunnel and nearly head ons a train. 

An impromptu stop at Zilker landed us on the Zephyr for their first time. Wish I had my GoPro, but the iPhone will have to do;)

Hiking the Greenbelt

This spring has been extremely wet, and Arlo and I are taking advantage.  There 's a great little spot in the Greenbelt and the water is the perfect depth for Arlo right now.  I was able to let him play on his own without too much concern.  He is getting confident in the water.

A great little hike down into the Greenbelt proves fun for Arlo. Love the spring when there is flowing water down there! Perfect for him at 2.5 years old.

Taxa Inc., Makers of the Cricket Trailer

I had the opportunity to work with Taxa Inc., the makers of the Cricket Trailer, in collaboration with Dell Precision to show how they are leveraging technology to improve the camping experience.  Love how Garrett is taking his background as a NASA Architect and using it to design small places for those looking for adventure. 

Below are the other videos I produced in this series, #PurposeBuilt. 

There will be one more profile in this series and we are all very excited to release it soon!

Ranch Weekend

In Texas, ranch weekends are the best.  Big thanks to @DPJones15 for letting us all get together.  Arlo especially enjoyed swinging underneath the big Oak tree.

Wheeling with Austin Jeep People

Austin Jeep People are good people.  They'll help you up a problem, wench you out, or help you change a flat in the backcountry.  I've learned all that first hand, and I've only been out with them twice! 

Check out the video of us over Labor Day Weekend at Hidden Falls Adventure Park during the 4 Wheel Parts Rally.

Diving Sulawesi

No, I did not just go to Indonesia, I wish...

I was fortunate enough however to have visited Indonesia twice while my not quite yet in-laws were living in Jakarta.  We visited Sulawesi, Indonesia in 2009 and I hate to say I've had this raw footage on my computer since then.  I finally had to do something with it, so here it is, simple, yet informative.
