We love to tell stories, especially personal stories that uncover a person’s journey which can, in turn, help others in a similar situation. Earlier this year we had the opportunity to get to know Julie and her family as she shared her personal struggles and triumphs living with PAH.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, progressive disorder characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) in the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary artery) for no apparent reason. The pulmonary arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood from the right side of the heart through the lungs.
Julie was a pleasure to work with and her family and we thank her for allowing us into her home and life if for only a short time.
#MelanomaJustGotPersonal – We are proud to share our latest production, Melanoma Just Got Personal.
It was a pleasure working with Troy Aikman and #Novartis on this campaign and to have the opportunity to work with Troy to tell his personal melanoma story.
Melanoma Just Got Personal is a portal to help patients living with advanced melanoma (unresectable or metastatic melanoma) learn about the personalized nature of their disease so they are better equipped to fight against it. We had the privilege to speak with patients living with melanoma and their supporters as well as healthcare professionals who provided insight into the importance of knowing their diagnosis. It was an eye opening experience to learn about the different types of the disease and how knowing your mutation can lead to better treatment. The team at Novartis is dedicated to spreading this message.
Join pro football legend, Hall of Famer and former melanoma patient, Troy Aikman, the Melanoma Research Foundation, Melanoma International Foundation and Aim at Melanoma, and learn more about advanced melanoma to help raise awareness of this rarely discussed cancer.
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 once again collaborated with The Cider Company to direct promos for one of our favorite shows, HGTV’s Fixer Upper. Having the opportunity to spend an August Summer day in Waco, TX should be on everyone’s to-do list.
Watch Fixer Upper on HGTV!
We are very excited to share progress of our studio partner, Rain or Shine Studios. Opening this spring, Rain or Shine will offer a unique location and studio setting for film, photography and event production.
More to come.
“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.
We recently wrapped production on a new project that is sure to wet the appetite. The program to be released this fall focuses on diet and nutrition and features some amazing talent. Directed by Chris Valentino with photography by Michael Falasco and Chong Pak, more info to come as we get closer to launch.
Here’s the official Press Release for Get Your Full Course. We had a blast working with Sunny Anderson on this campaign.
Sunny’s recipes and exclusive cooking demonstrations are featured on www.GetYourFullCourse.com. Alongside Sunny, Dr. Lindsey Albenberg, a gastroenterologist from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, lends her expert advice and answers common questions for those living with IBD. In addition, visitors to Get Your Full Course are invited to submit a recipe for, or a photo of, a favorite meal as part of a sweepstakes. All entries will be eligible to receive one of several prizes, including a grand prize to meet Sunny at a local CCFA event.
Researchers are working diligently to improve their knowledge of the relationship between diet, nutrition and IBD. They are specifically focused on examining the effect of bacteria in the gut for patients with IBD. Until these studies are complete, Dr. Albenberg encourages patients to have an open, honest conversation with their doctors to identify foods that could trigger flares and identify a diet and treatment plan to best manage their disease.
“IBD is a condition that varies greatly from patient to patient, but the goals of treatment remain consistent – to achieve remission, and once that is accomplished, to maintain remission,” said Dr. Albenberg. “When IBD is under control, a patient’s diet can be less restricted, so it’s important for patients to work closely with their healthcare team to accomplish symptom control and disease remission. Then, patients can slowly reintroduce foods into their diet to ensure a diet rich in vitamins and nutrients.”
“CCFA is proud to partner with Janssen Biotech, Inc. on Get Your Full Course to help educate the IBD community on the importance of working closely with your doctor to not only get your symptoms under control with appropriate therapy, but also learn how to make nutritious food choices and maintain a well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet,” said Laura Wingate, Vice President, Patient & Professional Services for CCFA. “We hope this initiative helps the IBD community learn that while diet does not cause or cure IBD, it can influence symptoms. By working with a healthcare professional, you can determine the individual diet and treatment approach that is right for you.”

Bean Creative Labs recently wrapped production on a spot for our friends at JCP. Taking advantage of the warmest day in months here in the NYC area. We headed out to Sheepshead Bay NY to take over (once again) local institution Jordan’s Clam Bar. A little movie magic and the place became our cafe setting for the piece.
Kudos to Team Bean’s Brian Jordan and Gable Schneider for making the day run smooth.
