That’s a screen grab from Monday nights workshop performance of Miranda Ferriss-Jones’ Precipice at TRI Studios. Miranda and her soon to be husband Ben Youngerman are great friends and frequent collaborators of ours. We were honored to be a part of the first workshop of Miranda’s amazing musical theater extravaganza. We can’t wait until the next one. (Also congrats you two! They’re getting married in about a week.) Look out for video clips from Monday night soonish from Panhandle Productions.
In other TeamJADED news, we are SLAMMED. My mom likes to call the way we work “feast or famine” and right now we are in feast mode. Or maybe a more accurate way to put it would be drowning on fat slices of extra cheese and pineapple pizza that clients are throwing at our mouths. I mean pizza is delicious… and the pineapple is good on everything… but I digress.
Pretty soon the first non-pilot Documos will go live. Documos is a new project we’ve launched under the JADED umbrella. It’s a brand dedicated specifically to producing documentary promos. We’ve been working a lot in the “short branded doc” for web catagory in the last few years. We love doing it. So we thought hey, let’s start a company dedicated to just that. Viola: Documos. Check it out. (I think this counts as a soft launch). Here’s one we produced with our buddy Thomas Knoll. Watch it and then go vote for his panel at SXSW.
We’ve also partnered with the folks at MediaOne on a variety of projects. Right now we’re working with them to cover Talks@Google. Look out for some of those videos coming soon. We’ve shot talks with D&D author/ legend RA Salvatore (There is a new Drizzt book out!) and also Battlestar Galactica writer Jane Espenson, who was at Google promoting her excellent web series Husbands.
We’ve also been working on some behind the scenes edits for our friends over at Pandora, including a performance/ interview of Amanda Palmer for their Backstage@Pandora series. We’ll post that when it’s up.
And Rough Life! Are you watching it? You should be. Here’s the new one in case you missed it for some reason.
