Felting!

This is the first of six videos we are producing for the Asheville, North Carolina based CCCD gallery entitled "Back to the Drawing Board."  

This months installation was all about getting to know your neighbors by soaking, rubbing, squishing and kneading their arms as they felt yours. in a community building/assembly-line type row.    

Out With the Old in With the New!

Happy 2k14! 

We had a pretty great 2013 and we hope you did too.  We got to work on projects with American Express, The Campaign for Southern Equality, Buchi, HomeTrust Bank, ASAP, The Biltmore, Dixon-PacificaLEAF in School & Streets, The Community Transformation Project, and the runners/residents of Urique in Mexico's Copper Canyons. 

We wanted to share this visual smorgasbord of images from last year — perhaps they'll give you some inspiration!  Or at least a chuckle.   

Meeting scores of cool people and being in new/interesting situations we'd never have access to if we weren't wielding a camera and producing video content is why we like what we do.   in 2014 We're looking forward to new Industrious Productions projects and lots of new stories to tell — maybe yours!  
 
Cheers!

Working with Actors

With 15 plus years in documentary comes many front row seat to situations you wouldn't have privy to otherwise.  Its probably one of the main reasons we keep on doing (that and all the prestige/dolla bills they rain) them.  That said, when we get the chance to work from a script, with a shot list and with actors, its a lotta fun.  There is a different kind of adrenaline happening when collaborating in an non, non-fiction way.  And at the end of a shoot with actors, you come away with a different breed of funk in your t-shirt.  Narrative stuff uses different muscles for certain. 

Recently we've been working on a multi-video real estate project for Dixon Pacifica that is 2/3rd's doc and 1/3 scripted.  The doc part was second nature for us.  And while the scripted part isn't exactly torn from the David Mamet or Aaron Sorkin canon, its good and it was fun to give the proper motivation for.  The acting couple we worked with were champs.  As a bonus, for some unbeknownst reason this real estate info graphic/narrative video seems to have lots of Charlie's Angles hair flips.   Thanks to Evan and Rebecca!
