Oct. 2018 - More filming for Republican Leah Vukmir Campaign Spots

Jamestown Associates came back to us again in October for one day of pick-up filming in Madison to complete their Vukmir TV campaign. Like in previous shoots, we provided a gaffer, grip, AC, sound and a grip truck.

Fresh Coast™ Production Resources provides support for additional Republican Leah Vukmir TV spots.

Sept 2018 - Leah Vukmir Kicks off U.S. Senate Campaign

Leah Vukmir won the August Republican primary and moved on to the general election, facing-off against Democrat U.S. Senate incumbent Tammy Baldwin. Jamestown Associates came back to us for two more days of filming at multiple locations in the metro Milwaukee area including one very chilly morning filming Vukmir skating around the Pettit National Ice Center.

Again, Jamestown sent their own producer, director and DP. Fresh Coast supplied everything else - crew, camera support and a grip truck. Everything went smoothly with the possible exception of the gimbal stabilizer Jamestown had shipped in. Neither their DP or our AC had ever seen one like it, and the two of them spent hours the night before the shoot figuring out how the thing worked.

As Jamestown’s Production Manager Rebecca Jacobs put it:
“Thank you so much for dealing with all our craziness, never a dull moment here at Jamestown.”

July 2018 - Nashville Ad Agency in Milwaukee to film Matt Flynn TV Spots

In July, Nashville-based Counterpoint Messaging came to us for crew and gear to film campaign TV spots for Milwaukee attorney Matt Flynn. Flynn had entered the Democratic Gubernatorial Primary race in hopes of getting the party’s nomination to run against Scott Walker.

This one very full day of filming included multiple locations in Glendale and downtown Milwaukee, culminating at the end of the day with a green screen studio shoot at Big Chair Studios in Waukesha. A big shout-out to all our great crew folks and equipment suppliers who made all this possible.

June 2018 - MIDTERM ELECTIONS AHEAD – Here we go!

The Midterm Election season is underway with numerous candidates vying for local, State, and national offices. Fresh Coast’s involvement began in late May with a call from Washington DC political ad agency Jamestown Associates. Jamestown’s candidate was Wisconsin State Senator Leah Vukmir who was running in the Republican U.S. Senate primary.

Leah Vukmir - Republican U.S. Senate Primary Video Shoot

An intensive 1-day shoot was planned to get footage for several TV spots. Jamestown sent their director, producer, and DP. We ended up providing an AD, gaffer, two grips, AC, sound, prompter, hair/makeup and wardrobe. We also put together a custom 3-Ton grip and lighting package that included a Fisher Dolly and small jib.

Jamestown was able to get all the footage they needed and left town happy.

"Ralph. Thank you so much for all your help with this!  We’re so happy with how everything turned out and we couldn’t have done it without you and your team."
Rebecca Jacobs, Production Manager.
