New Mount Mercy University TV Spot

December 18th, 2012 | Categories: Blog Tags: , , , ,

Production is wrapped on a new TV Spot for Mount Mercy University.  It was a full day of filming on campus at Mount Mercy University.  We got to play in the Ceramics area, and the performance hall with the Choir and also got to play in one of the Chemistry labs.  Professor Joe even made some very cool reactions in a water jug.  Very cool stuff.  The staff and students at Mount Mercy University were extremely helpful and willing to participate.  We had a blast making this commercial.  Lot’s of post-production effects and treatments.  You will be able to see it on all the local TV stations here in Cedar Rapids.  But in case you can’t wait, it’s right below.  Hope you enjoy it.

Editor and Director of Photography – Kirk Monson,

Isaac the Intern loves the Blue Angels

Welcome back to the intern blog! The guys and I just got back from a shoot in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, at the 114th Fighter Group National Guard Base. While at the base, we filmed the Blue Angels Navy demonstration team for an upcoming science related television show. We were given “all-access” to the Blue Angels show, pilots, and crew members for an exceptional “behind the flying” experience.

I’ve had a great time at MVP, and it has been a perfect way to obtain some first hand experience in the field of video production.
