Jared Cruce studio wrote, produced, directed and edited this commercial spot for Southern Oregon University Football Team. This is the first of a three part series with each spot featuring a different athlete (Running Back, Quarter Back, and Linebacker.) Working with the team’s coaches and media relations department, we sculpted a “brand” message that is the core of the team. It was awesome to work with the team’s new Coach Craig Howard on this. Coach Howard will lead the Raiders into the Frontier Division of the NAIA and we are glad to be a part of this new era.
The production was shot with the Canon 5d MarkII and Canon 7d cameras, Kessler Pocket Dolly and Pocket Jib, Glidecam 4000HD w/ Steadicam Merlin arm and vest. Lighting was a mixture of 1k Incandescents, and Flourescents with softboxes. Sound was recorded with Tascam DR-100, Rode NTG 2, Seinheisser Wireless Lav setup.

Big props to Tiffany Trevalant for producing this and to Christine at Troon Winery for creating such a nice space and treating us so well.
My friend and photographer / film maker Carson Garner has been taking HD DSLR filmmaking to the next level in a very short time. Check out his recent timelapse and his work over at www.f9photo.com He’s a really bright guy with a great eye his projects really show it.

Today I got up at 4:30am to shoot some cool Bald Eagle footage for Director Joel Lesko’s upcoming documentary. In the 11 deg. weather we shot some great video in the amazing freezing fog of the Klammath Wildlife Refuge. I snapped off a couple stills as well and thought I’d share. Check out the frozen branches!
