Nothing says professional like having a cat assist you. You be the judge. Check out this web streaming/ v blogging studio Furman Pictures built for School Moves near Vancouver, Washington. Debra spent a lot of time and money on sets and backgrounds before she finally asked for help.

Filming at Kazoodles Toys

I recently filmed on location at Kazoodles in Vancouver, Washington to promote the store and upcoming events. It’s a great little store and we often shop here for our kids. Kazoodles is especially great when you want some variety- something that isn’t super hero themed like everywhere else.

Ever Wonder if Mother Earth is Real?

Ever wonder if Mother Earth is real? Hestia Home Biogas just launched the commercial produced by Furman Pictures. It features a family surprised when the “magic” of biogas turns out to be real magical guest.

Hestia creates biogas generators that can convert compost into gas for cooking at home, powering generators or even fueling vehicles. Some cities are using Hestia’s industrial units to digest the city’s composed and in turn fuel their dump trucks. Hestia biogas generators are also on the roofs of some of a number of well know forward thinking companies across the country.

The production was filmed in Eugene, Oregon. Furman Pictures is based in the Northwest, serving Portland, Oregon and the world.

Old Union Station

Seattle_-_Union_Station_interior_pano_01We are scouting locations for a music video in Seattle next month. One of the options is the Old Union Station. They gave us a green light to film there, but it turned out not to be quite the right look for this production. Still, it would have been a beautiful place to film. I want to give them a shout out because they are good people to work with. Keep them in mind if you have a production coming up.

Current Projects

Pre-production for a book trailer and local video magazine as well as production on a private school promotional are currently underway at Furman Pictures. The book trailer stands out because there’s room for creativity. Unfortunately many book trailers are done poorly because of budget constraints. The challenge is to raise the bar while keeping on budget.

This Week

This week at Furman Pictures was spent working on post for “Buttterflies”, shooting interviews for Camas Video Magazine with Dawn at iQ Credit Union and Mark at American Union Insurance as well as working on development for other projects. iQ also has a branch in the Camas high school. I went out there to shoot a couple shots. Neat program, they have students manning branch. Thanks Shelby and Mike for the extra help there.

Humane Society

It’s great to be working with the Humane Society for Southwest Washington again this year on an appeal video for their annual auction. We met yesterday to begin planning the project which will be due this fall. It’s an honer to work with such a great group of people who provide such a humane resource to our community. There are so many animals that need homes. If you have room in your home, I encourage you consider adopting one of the many loving critters that need someone to love them. I know my wife and I hope to join the cause by making a couple adoptions this year- a cat patrol our barn and another dog to keep Jack, our Border Collie/Blue Heeler mix, company.
