This is one of my favorite projects for the Chicago-based band Nomad Planets. During production, my wife enjoyed telling people I was building a submarine in our living room. This is technically true, as the vessel was made from plastic flower pots, plumbing gaskets and a porch light. You can read about the injury I sustained while building the submersible in an upcoming blog post.

The 2006 Paramount Planner celebrated the art of movie marketing by examining seven decades of the studio’s posters. Working with such rich, iconic imagery made this a dream project. The piece received the Promax North America Gold Award for Marketing and Design.

The following year, CBS/Paramount Television commissioned a similar piece looking at 52 classic television shows. This was another fun trip through a studio’s archives.

On this shoot early in my career for Discovery Networks I learned why there are food stylists. Contrary to what you might think, an aquarium full of beer does not provide the perfect wrap-around background for this home video packaging because, in an aquarium, beer does not naturally foam, bubble, or create condensation like it does in mugs on TV commercials. In the end, I licensed a stock photo, in which the beer behaved the way it was supposed to.
