Jason Cameron knows a thing or two about landscaping.  This Licensed Home Improvement Contractor, Finish Carpenter, Personal Trainer, Writer, Actor, TV Personality and Fitness Model was a joy to work with and brought a lot of laughs to the set.  (Thankfully, he left the sledgehammer at home).

Director Chris Valentino wrapped a promo shoot for DIY network and The Cider Company.

Catch Jason on DIY’s Desperate Landscapes and America’s Most Desperate Landscapes.

 

It goes without saying that the incredible talent at DIY knows how to have fun.  We worked with DIY, The Cider Company and super-nice, award-winning host Scott McGillivray on some new promo campaigns.  Chris Valentino directed the shoot for the Cider Company and DIY alongside the DIY design team.  This shoot was a blast as it reunited many of our old crew people together at one of our favorite NY area locations.  The shoot went incredibly well and we accomplished everything we hoped to.  It was a memorable day.  Our favorite highlight has to be Scott tossing a sledgehammer to Director, Chris Valentino while he wasn’t looking.  Thankfully, Chris’ panther-like reflexes were on point.  Lastly, we have to mention the shoot was shot by our talented and lovely DP, Mike Falasco.  Kudos and thanks to Kim Bratt and team Cider for another fun assignment.

 

Recently Chris Valentino collaborated with The Cider Company to direct promos for Lara Spencer’s Flea Market Flip.  The HGTV show has found its new home as the flagship program for Great America Country, the Scripps family’s latest network addition.

A great time was had by all on location at the Brimfield Antique Show and The Elephant’s Trunk.  Both venues offered a look into the past and some truly amazing textures.

Lara is a pro and proved why she is so great at her job.  She is passionate, driven and artistic.

Many thanks to The Cider Company and Kim Bratt for the opportunity.

“It’s Time” is the highly anticipated SEC Storied documentary which depicts the unique relationship between former SEC players Chucky Mullins and Brad Gaines.

The film by Peabody Award-winning documentarian Fritz Mitchell takes an in-depth look at the inspirational friendship between Gaines, a former Vanderbilt fullback, and Mullins, a former Mississippi defensive back. Their lives became intertwined on Oct. 28, 1989 when Mullins put a devastating hit on Gaines near the Mississippi end zone. The collision left Mullins paralyzed and Gaines troubled with guilt for having played an unknowing role in the injury.

Several personalities featured in the documentary, including Gaines, Mitchell and former Mississippi head coach Billy Brewer, will discuss their participation after the screening.

Bean Creative Labs is happy to once again collaborate with Fritz on the project.  We provided the title design and animations for the film which premiered Sept 4th.

Television, the little box that could.  One of my earliest memories with television is waking up to Mighty Mouse on our small black and white TV.  It was so exciting to see that little mouse save the day, streaking across the sky like a drunken college student at a football game.

Today TV is always on.  Content is streamed from every corner of the globe to devices that fit in our pockets.  What makes watching TV, films, podcasts or anything so great is no secret – it is just the “thing”.  That thing is CONTENT.

That is why I love it.  Here are some small examples of our contributions to the ever-expanding world of content.
