Behind The Lens | MN Twins "Winter Baseball" 


Late January, the peak harshness of winter in Minnesota. Instead of being somewhere warm, I was out with Jonathan Chapman on frozen Brownie Lake, Minneapolis shooting a TV spot for the Minnesota Twins Community Fund.  The overall collaboration was literally one of the “coolest” experiences I have had on set…Literally. Throughout the endless shoveling of snow, running around of kids and flying cameras overhead, it was a great atmosphere.  Being an Aussie, use to “winters” not dropping below 32ºF (0ºC), I have to say that carving out a baseball diamond on ice rates pretty high in my book of experiences. I am pleased to share the first episode of Behind The Lens, a new series I'm working on with Jonathan Chapman, showing all the work that goes into film productions.

Below is the final 60 second spot for TV, featuring The Decemberists “January Hymn”.
