MiiR Commercial Production Stills

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under BTS

Just wrapped up filming my first commercial, shot for MiiR, with my co-director Eric Becker of We Are Shouting.  It was a really fun shoot and the footage is looking great.  We are hoping to have everything wrapped up in the next week.  For now, here are some of the production stills by Scott Everett.  Thanks Scott!  Behind every great production is a wonderful crew, and the crew on this commercial was no exception.  From left to right in the crew shot (last image) is Caven Keith, DJ, Lauri, Becker, Rodrigo, Nina Carduner, Scott Everett, Keatley, and Sarah Finkelstein.  Not pictured is our hair and makeup artist Annabelle Petry.

The Woodsman Production Stills

Posted by John Keatley / Filed under BTS

A short promotional film starring yours truly is in the works.  That’s right, I am the (burly) woodsman.  Editing will wrap up in a couple of days, but in the meantime, here are some production stills to pique your interest.  I don’t think these will give away too much.  It was a really fun project, and quite a different experience being on the other side of the camera.  After holding several axes on my shoulder for extended periods of time, I was rewarded with a really deep bruise.  Acting is hard and painful!  When I got home, Nichelle punched me in the shoulder and told me to suck it up.  She keeps me grounded.

I will explain this film a little more and talk about the wonderful team I worked with when I post the video next week.

Production stills by Dylan Priest.  Pictured: Rodrigo Valenzuela, Eric Becker, Brandon Hilliard, Michelle Chappron, John Keatley, and Oliver the dog.
