Peanut butter and chocolate. Beer and wings. Scarlett Johansson and anything. Two good things are even better when brought together. Such is the case with TOMCATS ‘Collection of Cats and Men’, a calendar for Tenth Life Cat Rescue created by Mandi Kohlmeier and a crack team of experts.
So one of our Bruton Stroube guys happened to be hanging out on the set of HBO’s Veep one day where he happened to meet Dana Powell, who plays a reoccurring character on the show as well as ABC’s Modern Family. As they got to talking, he asked Dana, “You wouldn’t by happenstance want to do a comedy piece with Bruton Stroube, would you?”, to which Dana replied, “As it happens I would. In fact, I happen to write comedy with my friend Paul Emerson, who happens to be a comedy director.” read more » »
It’s that time of year again where we get to work with one of our favorite agencies, The Marlin Network, to put together a fun teaser/invite for their yearly breakfast event at an annual industry food show. read more » »
Back in the day—was a Tuesday I believe—an agency named Cannonball came up with the idea of making MLB’s opening day a national holiday. In order to do that, they would need 100,000 people to sign a petition, which would force the President…you know, of the freaking country, to consider the notion. So, Cannonball teamed up with a big beer company named Anheuser-Busch to join them in this brave effort, then hired yours truly to make the spots to make that happen. And get this Clementine, or whatever your name is…we did it.
It’s no secret: we love our beards around here. So you can imagine the buzz around the shop when we first heard the concept from our pals at Bader Rutter: photographing a series of guys growing luscious, green weeds on their maws. Weed beards? You bet your ass we’ll make weed beards.
A few shoot stats:

1 case of cold brew coffee concentrate

Without further ado… actually without any ado. We’d like to present to you a short Holiday film— Decor Amore. We hope you enjoy it and from everyone at Bruton Stroube, we wish you the most wonderful of Holiday Seasons.
This past spring, Paradowski won the opportunity to refresh Monsanto’s primary corporate branding effort – America’s Farmers. Tasked with executing this multi-faceted campaign, Paradowski knew we were the perfect fit for the project. Hundreds of farm families were considered, reviewed, and narrowed to the top five for tech scouting. Ultimately, the three farms & families chosen were from Kingman IN, Blue Mound IL, and Morris County KS.
Here’s a unique project we got to work on recently for Camacho Cigars. Camacho has just relaunched under The Bold Standard and our own Roger Stagner had a hand in the creation of their new promos. Going from a few reference images (though a live specimen would have been kick ass), Roger created a 3D scorpion that could be used in a series of ads. The cigar is fully CG as well. Camacho sent us a few cigars so we could get the textures needed to wrap the final model as well as the ash.
What do you get when you mix paint, pizza, wine, and sexy ladies? Fine art, that’s what.
The ladies of Bruton Stroube, and Walter, took off to Art on the Vine in Kirkwood for a night of painting the town red…and blue…and neon pink.
