The Bruton Stroube motion crew is a bunch of movie junkies. So with the Oscars right around the corner, we set out to make a Master Motion Movie List for 2015.
There’s a new Thickburger in town, and our friends at 72andSunny came to us with an awesome idea to make this sky-high stack shine in the new commercial for Carl’s Jr./ Hardees. From fine dining to far-flung, the spot for the Steakhouse Thickburger takes a few delicious turns. Grab a drool bib and dig in.
Kids say the darnedest things. So for this year’s Holiday Card, we let a kid speak for us. In the spirit of the prolific and infamous “tips list,” he’s brewing a few ideas for surviving the holidays.
We’d like to thank you all for an astounding year. So get cozy, grab a mug, and see the holidays through kid-glasses. And Happy Holidays from your friends at Bruton Stroube!
16. The answer is 16. There may be more behind his couch.
Dustin Carter has been cycling through his collection of fan-swag every day since October 31 in preparation for today’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens premier.
This year marks Greg Stroube’s 30th year as a professional photographer. If you ask him, he’d say he hasn’t “worked at a job” since 1982. His career so far merits, at the very least, a glance back at how it all came to be.
You have your own thing. Whether you collect vinyl, cake-bake, or climb trees, you get what it means to have a hobby. Don’t get me wrong – the word ‘hobby’ has had it rough – hobby is not a sometimes thing, it isn’t a fair-weather friend. It’s not candy canes. Hobby is bread – essential, sustaining, takes skill to bake, and sometimes gluten-free.
Thanks to our friends at Integer, we worked on a fun project for Gillette. The plan was to capture the natural shaving routine without feeling posed or overly stylized. Brandon was well suited for this one; his specialty in lifestyle photography aside, if there’s anyone most familiar with razors, it’s his teen-wolf mug.
When it comes to Halloween, there’s very little that can’t be done with glue, paint, and a bunch of shameless creativity. Want to be a Ghostbuster with a replica proton pack and movie-accurate getup? No problem.
Good Things Come to Those Who Slo-Mo
I know you’ve been weeping in anticipation. Without further ado, I give you Slo-Mo Booth 2: Duels.
We worked with the great folks at Osborn Barr for a project on-location in Quintessential, Midwest. Ok, it was in Ulysses, Kansas. Gorgeous Country, Kansas. Middle-of-Nowhere, Kansas. Sure, it was a bit of a logistical challenge bringing all the pieces and people together, but nothing Producer Matt Siemer couldn’t handle. From Denver and Oklahoma City, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh, the whole crew assembled for the motion and still photography collaboration. Now remember, it’s a vast open farmscape. At night you could hear the stars humming. Just stupid beautiful.
The result of our visit was a library of still photography for ads, as well as 30-second and 60-second TV commercial spots. read more » »
