Big thanks to all the creatives that took time last week to view my work. Always love hitting Austin and Dallas, great creatives in those cities, doing some cool projects. Perfect timing to be in Austin- connected with my friends from the London Souls over some killer TexMex and cold beer. Even got to catch a Cowboys game on the weekend. All good.
After some mtgs in Atlanta I took in my annual trip back to Clemson South Carolina for my college football wknd… Teaching the kids proper tailgating, and connecting with college buddies. Love a good fall weekend in the South! GO TIGERS!
This was a project I got to do with my good buddy Prentice Howe at Tocquigny in Austin, TX. We shot 5 roads around the country. We worked virtually with Prentice, scouting before we went and sending images from the location while shooting the road.
Returning home after a burner week on the road… Couple of productions meetings, one job, and best part of the trip- getting out and seeing creatives in LA, Minneapolis, and NYC. I like getting out there to personally connect when I’m not behind the lens. Thanks to all the creatives for their time while I was in town.
Enjoyed working with BVK in Milwaukee on this project for their client Adventist Hospitals out of Chicago. Ended up shooting a :30 spot to go along with the ads. This was another perfect example where stills and motion flow together creating a seamless project. Big THANKS to all the crew, great job.
Pictures don’t lie. Another amazing summer vacation- an annual pilgrimage rowing 80+ miles down the Main Salmon with my family and good friends. Wouldn’t trade this trip for anything. This was a bitter sweet float this year with two of our kids moving out of the house the next week following their dreams, one to college and one of to boarding school/hockey. Proud of them. Can’t wait to do it all over again next year.
Stoked to announce this music video is finally out. I shot it in Nashville while we were filming the band in May for the documentary,”Thick As Thieves.” Had a blast with the band in the studio for about 18 crazy hours. Big thanks to my editor, my DP, colorist, and The Weeks for a great final product.
I love the Grand Tetons. Jackson Hole is one of my favorite spots. So, when we had the excuse to head over for Outstanding In The Field taking place on our friends ranch, we jumped at the chance. Jim Denevan, a visionary chef, launched a national movement to connect local farmers and chefs for an evening of incredible courses, conversation and connection. The signature “longtable” seats 150+ people, in which you are seated next to friends and interesting others in an intimate family style design. The mission is to connect locals and encourage a more sustainable, local sourcing for food. If you love food and want a cool experience go to one these events. Great evening with my wife and friends.
We have the final the Chipotle Tabasco :30 second commercial completed after spending time this winter in Chihuahua Mexico and another brief stint on Avery Island this summer. Big thank you to our friends 77 Ventures and everyone at Team Kiel bringing this together.
