Here it is! Unless you’re a brand, advertiser or marketer you probably won’t see this commercial on TV because as hopefully you’ll learn from the spot, our product here at @steelhouse allows brands and marketers to laser target their audience making for a better advertising experience in the future as Connected TV usage explodes (eventually you won’t see Ads you don’t want to see). We did a lot with a little on this and set out to prove that if a B2B brand like ours can get a spot on TV…so can you. This project took all the experience I’ve developed over my career including writing, producing, directing, DPing and editing (and surfing haha). Proud of our team for pulling it off which included shooting a lot of the spot in our office with our own team members. I posted a couple making of stories leading up to this post so it might be fun to check those out:) We documented this whole experience and as another layer of content will be releasing how and why we did this to further prove our point. Thanks very much to everyone involved! 🙏#steelhouse #digitaladvertising #connectedtv #CTV #futureofadvertising 📺 . . . #advertiseyourself #brand #inhouse #production #content #producer #director #directorofphotography #editor #marketing #television #filmmaking #technology #digital #advertising #setlife #surfer #surfing #losangeles

My first TV commercial is a commercial about a commercial and the commercial within the commercial is a Wetsuit Ad. Here’s a short video featuring footage from the Wetsuit Ad shoot..only a fraction of this made it into the actual spot. Our goal with this project was to produce as much as we could in-house @steelhouse and I was stoked to learn that modeling was like riding a bike for our Senior Account Manager @annakaerickson. By doing this in-house we had the luxury of waiting for the perfect light to film. The waiting window spanned two weeks and included a failed mission due to a Marine layer that blew in at the last minute. Finally an opportunity presented itself. I scouted ahead and while it wasn’t clear of haze, there wasn’t a cloud in sight. I will share the full spot soon…someone saw it play during ESPN! Lots more BTS of this project inbound, stay tuned 🙌 #steelhouse #inhouse #content #production 🎥📷 . . . #commercial #filmmaking #video #photography #surf #wetsuit #advertising #digital #adtech #marketing #beachbreak #shorebreak #producer #director #directorofphotography #photography #waves #beachy #sunset #surfrider #setlife #sea #sand #sun #sol #soul

I was surfing this lineup before I put the drone in the air and as that Lifeguard boat cruised past, a pod of dolphins were jumping and playing in the wake of the boat. Unfortunately they aren’t there in this photo but the memory will live as long as I do :) 🐬 . . . #bcgallery #aerial #earthart #malibu #california #surf #dolphins #baywatch #shorebreak #dji #drone #beachbreak #shoreline #aqua #zuma #beach #waves #ocean #sea #sand #coast #surfrider #tide #sun #sol #soul

Working on my first TV commercial as a Director/ Producer and I couldn’t be more stoked to include some surf action into the story. Our Ad is about an agency team who produces and serves their own CTV commercial. And to share the story of our first TV Spot that we’re making almost entirely in-house @steelhouse we’re documenting the making of our commercial about a commercial....Lots more to come from this project but for now here’s some BTS from this morning with one of the stars of our spot @hymcfly Thanks for being a trooper Candice! 🎥🏄🏻‍♀️ . . . #sunrise #surf #session #logging #crossstep #bts #ocean #sea #waves #surfrider #wetsuit #commercial #springsuit #gopro #californialove #tvcommercial #production #director #producer #directorofphotography #setlife #filmmaking #losangeles #froth #beach #sand #sun #sol #soul

It doesn’t happen often but I feel like the luckiest guy in the world when Venice shows her beautiful face.

Waves travel long distances across oceans to break on our shores and the energy that creates them can come from thousands of miles away. Proving to me without a doubt that we are all connected on this beautiful little ball in space 🌎 @aquatech_imagingsolutions @canonusa . . . #oceanmotion #wave #energy #earthart #shorebreak #malibu #california #coast #sea #oceanphotography #wavephotography #surf #surfrider #swell #tide #beach #beachbreak #pointbreak #aquatechimagingsolutions #canon #sun #sol #soul

Until yesterday morning I felt limited by my equipment to capture the beauty I witness every time I’m in the Ocean. Opening the water housing to review images was one of the most exciting experiences of my life. There’s so much to learn, so much to improve on but for now I am going to soak up the stoke of Roll 1. I hope this short story can give you a taste of what the experience was like (swipe ➡️)Thanks for following along this aquatic journey, this is only the beginning! :) . . . #earthart #zen #greenroom #barrel #frothy #california #wave #ocean #sea #surf #tide #wavephotography #surfart #surfer #sunrise #sunset #beachbreak #shorebreak #oceanphotography #tube #stoke #beach #aquatechimagingsolutions #canon #beach #sand #fun #sun #sol #soul

Stoke levels are high! 🤙 Thought it would be cool to document the unpacking and building of my @aquatech_imagingsolutions water housing 💙 🌊 Also wanted to note I’m looking forward to the day when brands reduce and eliminate plastic packaging from their shipping solutions 🙏🐬 . . . #oceanic #images #aquatechimagingsolutions #canon #gopro #timelapse #surfphotography #waves #wavehunter #deepbluesea #frothgoggles #earthart #ecosystem #sunset #sunrise #dawnpatrol #underwaterhousing #water #sea #splash #surfer #surfrider #tide #coast #80s #sun #sol #soul
