Georgia Gives Day

October 9, 2013

There are some pretty awesome things happening in our home state of Georgia these days, and we're so glad that we've been a part of them. The Georgia Center for Nonprofits is organizing Georgia Gives Day on December 6, 2012. On this day, the goal is to raise as much money for as many different Georgia nonprofits as possible via the website -- www.gagivesday.org. We got the awesome opportunity to work with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits and the rockin' media team they put together to produce a series of spots for the campaign that is currently airing all over the state.

The exceptional guys at Ames Scullin O'Haire developed the concepts for the spots and handled the creative. We then stepped in to do both production and post on the 3 spots. We got help from so many generous Atlanta companies and individuals who donated their time and gear. PCandE, Flanders Scientific, Marc Dobiecki, and Set Supplies all offered up some cool equipment, while The City of Decatur, Return to Eden, St. Vincent de Paul Atlanta, The Iberian Pig, and Burnt Fork BBQ provided the perfect locations.  A huge thanks also goes out to Producer Alyson Belatti-Watson, DP Jose Acosta, Gaffer Charles Bickelman, Key Grip Luc Bonneson, AD Brian Franklin, Set Designer Despina Grammenos, Makeup Artist Zoe Simone, Sound Engineer Spencer Herzog, Composer David Payne, 1st AC Matt Wierson, Best Boy Todd Harvey, Audio Engineers Linda Spears and Robert Kwon, Art Department Scot McElroy, PAs Jacob Kiesgen, Lynsi Blankenship, Bryce Kervin, and La Reshea Jones, and so many others who were incredibly giving of their talents.  Jen Kelley and Rita Harrell of Big Picture Casting were hugely instrumental in lining up all the great talent.

The 3 spots were shot on the RED Epic with postproduction done in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Autodesk Smoke.  We truly had a blast working with the Georgia Center for Nonprofits and Ames Scullin O'Haire, and we've been so overwhelmed with the outpouring of support we've received from our Atlanta production family.  Thank you!
