“SHATTERED” – Maggie Barry Fashion BONUS OUTTAKE Video

Okay… I edited this little piece up quickly mostly for the cast and crew to laugh at themselves and to show as a little bonus video at the Premiere party for the Maggie Barry Fashion Video. So, saying that I’m not entirely proud of this but then again don’t hate it at the same time. I’m a perfectionist and as I said I cut it quickly and really didn’t have enough material to work with. But… here it is anyway. A little BONUS video I cut called “Shattered”


Kit Kraft Commercial; The Challenge: Make One Spot Work for Two Divergent Audiences. The Result: “Through the Eyes of a Child”

Kit Kraft is two things. It started out as a mom and pop hobby store almost sixty years ago in Southern California and it became one of the largest international distributors of hobby goods – while still remaining a local hobby shop for generations upon generations of faithful artisans, craftsmen, creators and model builders.

For me it was models.¬†Specially¬†Estes Rockets my friends and I took unending joy in building and lighting off at a local park (and sometimes at the end of our dead end street when our parents weren’t looking).

We bought them as kids and then proceeded to forget about them when girls became more interesting. I suppose there are just tons and tons of people like me who grew up and forgot the store. I’m sure there are generations of us.

So Kit Kraft has history. A lot of it. But, it also has become a huge distribution center which has many times saved the business from going under when walk in traffic didn’t pay the bills. In those times the internet hobby supply business kept the store in the black. International business over the years has gone on to far, far out-shadow sales in the quaint little mom and pop store.

So, these were the challenge: Produce a spot that would recapture the feeling one had as a child when first discovering the store while not detracting from international business.

And so was born the concept: “Through the Eyes of a Child”
