TeamJaded Update

It’s been a busy couple weeks for us. Shoots in several different cities (Salt Lake, Vegas, and Irvine, CA). In our typical style we road tripped it, with a stop in Greeley, CO to visit Abby’s family. I can’t say a whole lot about the shoots, but how about some pictures? Will that suffice? It better suffice.

We’ll let you know about this new and exciting project in the coming weeks!

Pandora Southern Style

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.

It’s a Rough Life Episode 3: Roughside of Utah Finale

It’s a Rough Life, a reality series about Johnny Roughneck.

In Part 3 of Johnny’s adventure to Salt Lake City, the “Rough side of the Traxx” heads to the Wave, but the Roughneck crew has a little trouble on the way. Eventually the skating goes off at the Wave, and then the contest rolls to the U where the Salt Lake City skaters take turns throwing tricks down a big set of stairs. After the last spot it’s off to the afterparty behind the Fice Boutique for the winners ceremony.
