‘Big Thunder’ TV Show Pilot
We had ABC studios in our studio this month, working on a new pilot called, ‘Big Thunder.’ Based on the hit Disney theme ride ‘Big Thunder Railroad,’ the show is based on a 19th century New York doctor who moves to a frontier mining town, but quickly realized everything is not as it seems. We aren’t sure yet what the Super 8 film sequences will be used for, but we look forward to seeing the pilot this year!

Lex and Loren Announcement Video
We love this special announcement video by our clients Lex and Loren Brinton, who decided to think outside the box to let their friends and family know they are having a baby! Film was transferred with one of our ‘throw back’ film packages in standard definition with a 1-light correction. The standard def really gives it that classic, soft look. Congrats to Lex and Loren on their growing family!
