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.

Mt. Mercy University Commercial

December 7th, 2011 | Categories: Blog Tags: , ,

We recently wrapped production on a brand new commercial for Mount Mercy University featuring NAIA National Champion in the Javelin throw, Jenna.  You may have seen her picture before if you have been driving around Cedar Rapids as she is on a number of billboards.

We filmed the spot a few weeks ago, when it wasn’t all that cold yet, and Jenna was a great sport.  We were assured of her accuracy so we naturally had her throw the Javelin at the camera for a couple of shots.  20 to 30 feet, was no problem.  So, we upped the challenge for Jenna, and Kirk moved down the field a good 100 feet or so.  then we had her throw it again, and again and again.  Great accuracy!  A fun afternoon working with a National Champ.  And as usual, Mount Mercy were great hosts.
