TAASA: Speak Up Speak Out
The Austin Atlassian office challenged themselves to build a home for Habitat for Humanity in 2016. After fundraising $85,000 and volunteering over 250 hours they completed their goal. Filmed over 5 build days, this is the their story.
KoSchool is an alternative school in Austin, Texas who's mission is to create "FutureAuthors." The three core capacities they instill in their students are: Personal Development, Autodidacticism, and Authentic Leadership. Given this unique take on education, they needed some help communicating their story effectively online. I shot, directed, and edited this piece for them, and other video assets at koschool.org.
Once a quarter RetailMeNot offers a 2-minute shopping spree through Sam's Club to deserving charities around the country. In the fall of 2016, I traveled to Pittsburgh with them to capture the madness of the run, and the local Boys and Girls Club Chapter it would be benefiting.
In May of 2014 I set out with Under Armour to ask people why they run. With stops along the southwestern US hosting community runs we learned that running is more than just putting one foot in front of the other. The trip culminated at the annual Bay to Breakers 12k in San Fransisco. In total we traveled over 4,000 miles in a branded Airstream and documented countless tales. I hope this piece helps inspire you to get out there and run.
When Atlassian opened their new office in downtown Austin they threw a party to celebrate the milestone. They wanted to create a recap video of the party, but also grab content that could be used in their recruiting efforts. By extending the shoot date I was able to produce this video.
When DoStuff has a party, tastemakers are not hard to find. Filmed during their annual SXSW party, this video was commissioned to capture why DoStuff Media always has an answer to, "What to do tonight?"
RetailMeNot competes with the Bay Area and NYC for their engineering talent. They approached me to make a video that would set them apart from the coastal competition, and highlight the great working environment they offer in Austin. I shot this around their office and downtown, and licensed music from a local musician Matt Bradshaw to give the video a distinct Austin feel.
Mix BacardiPlus with a DJ set from Passion Pit at Vuka Co-Op in Austin Texas and this is the result. Used some timelapse photography and interviews from party-goers in this recap video for Bacardi.
