By Julie,

Hey, I like cookies and milk just as much as the next guy, but if I had to eat nothing but cookies and milk left by two billion kids in one night I’d probably judo kick Rudolph so hard he’d land in a new holiday.

A Tale of Two Tonys

By Jake,

Earlier this week graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister released this fantastic and slightly NSFW video. It concerns this trend where people call themselves “storytellers” instead of “bankers” or “husky suit salespersons” or whatever it is they do for a living. We laughed, and one of our guys had to change his Twitter handle.

In the case of one of our Producers, Tony Biaggne, the title legitimately fits. read more » »

Now Playing: Donation

By Jake,

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 » »

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.

Fresh slices, cold brew and a great crew

By Beau,

A few shoot stats:
14 days in L.A.
126 talent
42 setups
10 locations
11,915 captures
10 food stylists with 2 food trucks
1 case of cold brew coffee concentrate
and more cheese than a denim pantsuit in Vegas

That’s what it took to help our friends at TracyLocke when they asked Brandon to shoot an asset library for Pizza Hut…well, that, and our own team of producers, stylists, techs, retouchers and assistants.  With a production of this complexity and scope, and a timeline to make you pucker, it took the whole Bruton Stroube family to pull this one together.

Now Playing: America’s Farmers

By Matt,

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.
