Tulane - This. Is. Jeff.

We were honored to win a 2017 Silver ADDY Award for this short film!  Read on to meet Jeff, the Admissions Director for Tulane University in New Orleans.

Wild For Planners

Wow did we have fun filming and photographing the Wild For Planners convention!  This group of ladies is truly inspirational, and we were honored to be a part of their inaugural retreat in New Orleans.  Over 400 planning enthusiasts convened at The Marriott at the Convention Center to share creative ideas, motivate each other, and make new friends.  Leading female entrepreneurs Erin Condren, creator of the Life Planner and Whitney English, creator of the Day Designer led the strong group of speakers promoting the message of community over competition.  We surely left with a newfound attention to our daily goal setting and appreciation for the well-designed life (as Whitney would say).  The video below sums up the weekend's events, and we aired it at the conference wrap up party (Planjama)...what a fun way to end Geaux Wild 2016!

Canon 1dX ii + Ronin-M

The new Canon 1DX Mark II and DJI Ronin-M...our new favorite toys.  Can't wait to shoot Flow Tribe's music video Monday.  Stay tuned!

At first, we weren't sure the Canon 1DX II was going to fit on the DJI Ronin-M or balance properly because of the size...but OH were we wrong!!  The Ronin-M provided AMAZING stability / smooth motion control and the Canon 1DX II surpassed all of our expectations for low light performance and auto focus.

STILL PHOTOS:

Overall, our first attempt with the Canon 1DX II was successful...the low light performance is second to none and the auto focus ability is spot on.

The Canon 1DX II on the DJI Ronin-M was a great combination for us...the only piece to the puzzle we need to add is the external monitor for the operator on the Ronin-M mount, and the external monitor for the remote control operator.

King Cake Festival

The whole crew was super pumped when we got the call from Team AD about capturing her performance at this year's King Cake Festival.  It's so funny how the right time and the right place make for the perfect opportunity!!

BELOW is a blurb from this extremely talented songstress, AMANDA DUCORBIER.


“Sing baby, just sing” is the quote from Amanda’s late father that she built her entire musical career around.

By the age of 17, Amanda’s musical resume included work with a range of musical powerhouses in New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Some of her vocal influences range from artists such as Mariah Carey and Amy Winehouse to Etta James and Billie Holiday. This singer/songwriter’s sound is best described as “power soul pop.”
