Just wrapped up a recent project for The CGS Group in Columbus, Oh. Overhauling their photography, videos and websites for their conglomerate of bars in the Arena District (Park Street Cantina, Park Street Patio, The Social and Park Street Saloon). I teamed up with Emily Petroff and Luke Deady to get everything done. Thanks to Anthony (Emily and Luke’s neighbor) for helping us out in a pinch with the development after some issues with our initial developer.
It was a fun challenge to work in low light, fight large crowds and to work with such a successful business in Columbus. Thanks to Jon Fintel of Relay Recording for recording and supplying the awesome music for The Patio video. It reminds me of the scoring from NBC’s Friday Night Lights television show. The other music was purchased for use from shockwave-sound.com, which I found to have some of the best royalty free music for video use. Thanks to Kitty for dropping me off and picking me up at the clubs. Thanks to all of the doormen and bartenders for being so hospitable. Especially Matt Leininger for allowing me behind the bar at The Patio to get some good shots and footage. Thanks to Corso and Gallicchio for the shots of Patrón on those hot nights. And a big thanks to all of the patrons for being fun and so willing to be involved. Met some cool people in the process and only had one elbow thrown at me from a youngster. Learned a lot from this project and look forward to more like it.
