Click that image and follow it to Pandora Presents: Walk the Moon. We’ve been editing the Pandora Presents series, and it’s been tons of fun. The Walk the Moon videos have some great moments like a a trip to Amoeba in LA with the band. They get into some of their favorite artists and influences while browsing albums, it’s a cool moment. Check it out. Thanks again to our friends at Pandora for bringing us along for the ride. Also Tim Palmer killed it again with the graphics, he’s got skills.
We are on the road to Colorado by way of Salt Lake City for 4th of July. In fact, we are in SLC right now shooting a video for a new project of ours. Sorry we can’t get more specific than that right now. In the meantime, check out these two projects we just worked on for Pandora. Above is a series of spots we edited of Alabama’s own Yelawolf, playing Jeep/ Pandora Presents Atlanta. Below is an interview with New Orlean’s Theresa Andersson. We mentioned it a week or so ago. Now it’s up!
In other recent JADED news, Jeremey has been working more as a Producer/ Shooter on Discovery Health’s Addicted. We color-corrected a documentary for PBS called RARE. We’ve also done jobs with our friends at Portal A and Panhandle Productions in the last couple of weeks… and it seems like a blur, but Jeremey was in Portland on Thursday and Friday with our friend Dan (and Ben) shooting an interview with Nickelback for the Pandora Legends and Icons series. Turns out they are super nice, and that’s all we’ve got to say about that.
Recently we were featured on the Crew Tide blog. It’s a company focused on exploring…
how independent filmmakers help brands tell their stories and reach new audiences for a fraction of the cost.
We met Crew Tide’s founder, Anna Callahan at SXSW. She asked us if she could do a short interview with us because our body of work falls so squarely within what she is doing. A couple of days later we did a phone interview. Now it’s up. Check it out.
Jeremey Lavoi and Abby Berendt run Jaded Multimedia, a production company in San Francisco. Most of their work is short-form non-fiction branded content. They work with about a dozen freelancers so that when they have too much work, they know they can handle it — that’s a good problem to have…
There’s even a little Rough Life shout out. (Stay tuned, the second season premiere is approaching.)
In other JADED news, we have just come off of a ROLLER COASTER. After we got back from Austin/ Baton Rouge for the SXSW/ Pandora/ Rough Life extravaganza, we jumped right into the San Francisco International Film Festival. If you’ve been following the blog, then you’ve seen some of those pieces. We’re looking forward to a post-fest meeting with the great San Francisco Film Society staff next week. The fest was fun, but right after we set-up the production schedule with the Film Society, Jeremey was booked as a Producer/ Shooter on Discovery Health’s, Addicted. He was immediatly shipped out to parts unknown and embedded with a drug addict 24/7 for almost two weeks. Craziness ensued. We’d love to talk more about it, but unfortunatley we cannot. Suffice it to say, it was quite an experience. He got back just in time to for the final few days of SFIFF (and more importantly the Filmmakers Lounge on Fillmore). More to come.
Check out this talk we worked on a couple of weeks ago for Pandora. It features Geisha J. Williams, Executive Vice President, Electric Operations at PG&E. She was interviewed for the Women in Business series. This job was interesting for us because it came together rather quickly. We found out about it less than an hour before the talk was scheduled to start at Pandora HQ in Oakland. If that wasn’t challenge enough, we were still on the road post-SXSW. In fact, we were in Louisiana literally packing our car to head back to San Francisco.
The circumstance really put to the test our claim that we as a company can spring into action anywhere, anytime, and get it done for our clients. We made some calls and Ben Youngerman sprang into action. He swooped in to Pandora literally minutes before the talk started. He then proceeded to knock out a two camera shoot solo, saving the day for all.
We got back to San Fran a few days later and picked up the drive. Then Jeremey cut the piece for our friends on the WIB team. Another good project in the can.
We are keeping busy right now. Our time since SXSW has been ACTION PACKED. We filmed another performance at Pandora with our “best friend” K. Flay. Hopefully that will be up soon. We’re also working with the San Francisco International Film Festival to produce daily “scoop” coverage at the fest. Production for that starts today. Through StoreFront Political Media, we worked on a :30 sec spot for Phil Ting’s campaign for California Assembly. And, and, and… Rough Life is in the que. Season 2 starts soon.

Check out the videos we worked on with our friends at Pandora at SXSW 2012.
We’ve got a to give a big thanks to our friends on the Pandora side who brought us in for this project. Thanks to Dan Gahr, Fhay Arceo, and Victoria Sevilla. It was a pleasure working with them as usual. It was also great working with the rest of the production and post teams, including our friends Ben Youngerman, Peter Stoddard, and Tim Palmer.
We had a great time at SXSW, especially producing these branded documentaries at the Pandora Discovery Den. Notable occurrences, Jeremey got sick with the flu during the first day of production. Then Abby came in strong with her DP skills on day two to pick up where he left off. She knocked out two solid shoot days like a champ. Then we camped out in Baton Rouge at Jeremey’s Mom’s house so he could rest up, and so we could edit four of the spots. Those spots included the two K. Flay videos, Capital Cities, and the Dunwells. Now we’re back on the road headed for SF.
We have been working with Pandora on a variety of project for the last few months. Those projects run the gamut from documentary style, branded content campaigns with big artists to more humble conference style talks at Pandora HQ. We’ve posted about the former, but not the latter so this post will be about them. One very cool job that we’ve done for Pandora is video coverage of their Women in Business series. For those, the internal “Women in Business” group brings in female business luminaries to share their experiences. JADED’s role is to shoot the video, edit them, and put them up on the web for further viewing. We think the talks are a great service for a company to provide its staff. Even better, they share the videos we produce publicly so that anybody can watch them. Check some of them out, they’re definitely worth watching.
Lisa Kavanaugh, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Ask.com interviewed by Amanda Conti for Pandora’s Women in Business Series.
Kellie A. McElhaney delivers her talk called “The Lioness Factor” at Pandora Headquarters.
We are doing lots of scheming. It’s that time of year when planning is important, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been keeping busy as well. We were at Pandora last week shooting a talk for their Women in Business series.
The talk was with Lisa Kavanaugh, the Chief Product and Technology Officer at Ask.com.
You’ll recognize Johnny saluting the crowd in the vendor area. We then checked out all the new gear, and got a close look at Canon’s new C300. Drool. Unfortunately we did not make it to the presentation stage, instead opting for dinner in Dogpatch. We totally planned to go back… just didn’t happen. Word on the ‘net is that the highlights included CS6 and a change in name for the User Group.
The last couple days we cut three videos for Pandora. It’s a pretty cool series called “Pandora Presents” where Pandora (along with Budweiser) put on a free concert for fans of the band. Basically, if you make a Pandora station for, let’s say “Portugal. The Man” and you live in the city where they’re hosting the show… then they’ll send you an email and you get to go see that band for free. Rad, right? This was their second concert in New York City with Portugal. The Man; the first was with the band Dawes in Portland, OR. Check out the spots by clicking the image below. Yes, since it’s brought to you by Budweiser, you’ll have to put in your birthday. So as long as you were born January 25th, 1991 you can watch these. And with that statement making me feel old, go watch some videos:
Part of the fun with this project was the Color Correction / Grading. Exciting times with Magic Bullet! We were going for a dreamy, saturated look. What do you think?
