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.”
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.
Gaffer - Chris Marks. Grip - Mike Schmit. Grip - Shaun Buehler. AC - Mike Krieger. Location Sound - Tom Beach. Hair & Makeup - Jhousy Leon. Prompter - Fred Graber. PA -Taran Molnar. Lighting & Grip - Electric Sun Corp.
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."
