Great Eats

Pepsi wanted to thank restaurants who were loyal to their brand by giving them a versionable commercial. I worked with Creative Director Marc Jensen to create a faux show designed to bookend video donuts of each loyal restaurant. I chose to use stills instead of video to ensure flexibility in the booking and scheduling of voice over talent.

Go America

My background is in ultra low budget feature films, which means maximizing every shoot day. While directing the Stuller jewelry commercial, I created and directed several scenarios which were shot earlier in the day. That particular shoot day yielded a total of seven commercials.
