Video Production for the NFL Fuel Up to Play 60

29 Pixel Studios was hired to help with video production for the Kansas City’s NFL Fuel Up to Play 60 event this summer.

With our two-camera video production crew, 29 Pixel Studios felt privileged to once again capture this kid-focused, health-focused NFL event! This was one of those gigs where the client had an in-house editor so our team handed the footage off on site.

Their team did a great job on the editing! BRAVO to Bailey following around Maria! Kept up with her while mending a broken foot! All-star.

Our office view for the day! Love anytime you get to do video production at a place like Arrowhead in Kansas City!

Video Production in Kansas City has to be fun, and it is with 29 Pixel StudiosIt is always a welcome bonus to have a fun and exciting client. They brought energy and professionalism to the site, always a welcomed bonus! So, as you can see, Nick brought his ‘true self’ to the day and embraced the kid-filled environment!

From Nick, “I wish everyone loved their job as much as I do! Having fun at your job makes you want improve everyday. More improvement = more opportunities = more fun!”

Here is what their team cut from our footage last year!

We did not work on the color grading/editing/audio-engineering. For this video production, 29 Pixel Studios was only in charge of actual filming. This was a bummer, mainly because of how awesome the kids were! Bet it was a blast to edit!

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Video

There are a handful of clients that come to mind when I think, “who is my dream client?” Number one would probably be something associated with Lucasfilms. Right behind Star Wars, is no doubt, anything dealing with LEGO.

So when LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Arizona reached out, my heart skipped a beat!

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Video Production by 29 Pixel Studios; Master BuilderTo my knowledge, all LEGOLAND Discovery Centers have a Master Builder on staff. How rare is a Master Builder? There are only about 40 in the world! Talk about an exclusive club. Earning your rank as Master Builder takes more than a smile and a fancy resume. You must win a three round, multi day building competition!

29 Pixel Studios was hired to film the event from start to finish and produced a LEGOLAND Discovery Center Video for marketing and promoting the opening of LDC Arizona, please enjoy!

Personal note from Nick: LEGOs certainly played a big role in shaping who I was to become. When I was about seven or eight, I haggled a guy at a garage sale down to $50 for this container of infinite possibilities. Now, some three decades later, my two kids are pla
ying in the same pile of bricks.

This is far from the first time 29 Pixel Studios has been hired to work for one of Merlin Entertainments businesses. Merlin Entertainments’ employees are top notch professionals. When it comes to family entertainment, their staff gets it! Personalities are bright and their passion for their profession shines through (working with aquariums and LEGOs certainly doesn’t hurt either 😉 ). Keep putting smiles on people’s faces Merlin! You guys are true leaders for all companies to look up to!

Previous projects with Merlin Entertainment: The SEA LIFE Arizona Sea Turtle Rescue, was an amazing adventure. Then we produced a television commercial, which was customized for half a dozen states.

Kansas City Airport Video

When NICE approached 29 Pixel Studios about a Kansas City Airport Video and the importance of a thriving airport, we couldn’t wait to start planning. NICE is the National Institute for Construction Excellence and they have three overall visions and goals:

  • Improve education, particularly science, engineering, math and technology for all young people.
  • Elevate the image of construction related fields for young people and in the community.
  • Strengthen economic development in the community.

airportThe story here; the people of Kansas City love our airport as-is. MCI is fast and convenient. While it’s hard to argue against that, it was fascinating to learn more about why a remodel would benefit our entire Kansas City area. Thinking of an airport as something more than a personal people mover helps open up the conversation.

It’s always about the story at 29 Pixel Studios. In a documentary style project, the true story gets revealed during the acquisition phase. NICE lined up many respectable people to interview and get their opinion. It’s our hope that the shocking amount of benefits that a single terminal could bring to Kansas City is evident in our video.

From Nick: “I’ve worked on a few projects with the fine people at NICE, so it is with extreme confidence that I say these people are fully committed to their mission of helping youth and strengthen economic development. It’s an honor to have worked with NICE and sincerely look forward to the next chance to tell their story!”

Southwest Vice President, Jason Van Eaton, spoke as the keynote and revealed the companies’ desire for a single terminal. Mr. Eaton said very nice words about the video we produced, so afterwards we thanked him and expressed our loyalty to Southwest! That loyalty is based on the SEA LIFE Sea Turtle Rescue project! http://29pixelstudios.com/sea-life-arizona-sea-turtle-rescue-video/ and on my personal site http://nickschale.com/2016/01/2015-sea-life-arizona-i-love-my-job/.

Nick Schale and Mayor Sly James - Video Production in Kansas City - Kansas City Airport VideoWe had fun producing this video! It would be remiss of me if I didn’t thank the team. Of course, Greg Lever the Executive Director and master planner! Brett Smith knocked out some around the town shots and we had some help from the fantastic Tony Rangel on a day that Nick had to attend a funeral. Finally, our very own Pixel Punisher Paige did some knock out work on this project.

 

Photography for The Matchbreaker premiere

Wow! It was such an honor to be asked to photograph the Kansas City Premiere of The Matchbreaker!

The Vetter Brothers’ romantic comedy in select theaters last night.

At the Alamo Drafthouse cast and crew walked the red carpet to watch The Matchbreaker on the big screen. Fantastic performance from so many! I can’t wait to pick Cory Vetter’s brain about some of the cinematic shots and technical choices. The tracking and pulling focus on a dozen of the sequences were just brilliant. Kansas City Premiere of The Matchbreaker - Photography for The Matchbreaker premiere, Matchbreaker is a romantic comedy by the Vetter Brothers photography-matchbreaker-premiere Photography for The Matchbreaker premiere

Lot of emotion this night.

If you are like me and unfortunately did not know the late Christina Grimmie personally. You will get to see who she was and from one of the actors, “Christina on screen, that was HER.” Enjoy her acting and experience her stunning voice.

From Nick “Grimmie was taken from us far too soon. Thank you Vetter Brothers for capturing her on screen the way you did.”
