Stillmotion Big Shorts Challenge Winner | Noah Galloway

n early August, we heard about a challenge Stillmotion was doing (and shortly after met Noah Galloway). Matt and I read over the details and quickly accepted. We are aways looking for something outside of "everyday work" to challenge us to be better filmmakers and storytellers. Stillmotion's Big Shorts Challenge was just what we needed to push us to think differently and creatively. Before we continue on our experience being part of this challenge, you HAVE to watch our submission. There will be a few spoilers below the video.

Act Of Congress

Back in April, Act Of Congress released their second full length album, Worth Waiting For, and performed to a sold out crowd at their WorkPlay CD release party. We were lucky enough to follow them around in the week leading up to their show. We captured A Week In The Life of Act Of Congress, along with their live concert.

Feel The Beat Promo

For best viewing, press PLAY and then PAUSE to allow video to fully load before watching. If the video still loads slowly, turn the HD off.

If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you may have noticed Matt and I went to the prom last Friday night. No, we weren't being creepy and crashing prom! We actually went to grab some footage of our friends at Feel The Beat Entertainment in action. If you haven't been to a party or wedding that had a Feel The Beat DJ, you are in for a treat!

Feel The Beat always takes it to the next level. You will never see them just standing behind a table playing some lame music with no one dancing on the floor. Their DJs keep the party going, play the music you want to hear, and just make it a fun, memorable party.

In addition to keeping the reception and party fun and entertaining, they also change the way the whole room looks. Talk to them about their lighting options and LED furniture. They can completely transform a room!

Take a few minutes and watch the promo above to see Danny Brewer and his team in action. Then contact them to learn more.

Lately, I have been obsessed with barn, farm and outdoor weddings. Maybe it's the simplicity, or the combination of elegance and rustic, or my South Georgia roots ... either way, you're going to fall in love with The Barn at High Point Farms too!! We were so excited to produce a video showcasing their unique (and versatile) venue.

They are located in Flintstone, Georgia, 25 minutes south of Chattanooga. The Barn is easily accessible for Chattanooga brides and North Georgia brides. It is also the perfect location for a destination wedding (that is not too far away) for Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia brides.

What makes The Barn at High Point Farms unique?

The bride and grooms! The wonderful thing about The Barn is Jill and Margie let the couples have full control of their wedding. There is not a "set" way to do weddings at The Barn, but Jill and Margie will help you create the wedding of YOUR dreams. You can get married anywhere on the property: in the grove under trees, the pasture, the barn or with the mountains in the background. It's totally up to you!

The feeling you get when you're there is indescribable. The beauty of the old barn, the lights, the peacefulness, the authenticity ... you have to experience it for yourself.

Aside from the venue: 200 natural wood folding chairs 20 five-foot round tables 2 six-foot rectangle tables 2 white church pews vintage tables cast iron "red hot bath tub" for drinks, a gift tub, or cute photo ops plus, so many more unique touches!

Are there any additional things to be added?

These add-ons will definitely make your wedding fun and unique! A few are: Hay bales in leui of chairs. Hay-ride valet from the parking lot. Bon-fire. Goat on a leash. This is fun entertainment for you guests, especially if you have a lot of children.

Molly Green | Commercial

Molly Green recently opened in Homewood, Alabama. Molly Green is not your average clothing boutique, it's an eco chic boutique. Meaning your earth friendly lifestyle does not have to stop when you go shopping. Also, eco does not mean drab, the clothes they carry are stylish and trendy.

Kelly (Spindle Photography) contacted me asking if we could squeeze in a commercial for Molly Green. We had previously collaborated with Kelly on the Where The Wild Things Are shoot, so we definitely wanted to do this project. We squeezed in the shoot on the one day we had nothing scheduled.

We had an extremely tight shooting schedule. Call time was at 5:30 AM (wow, that was early!), we had our shot list and quickly moved from one shot to the next.

We wanted to tell the story of a girl living an earth-friendly lifestyle in her eco friendly clothes. We loved that we got to incorporate the Homewood Farmer's Market in the shooting!

Music was a key part of the commercial. We did not want voiceover. We wanted music to move you through the commercial and let you experience life in Molly Green clothing. A (beyond) huge thanks goes out to Sarah and Will Mason. They were sweet enough to work on our tight schedule and nailed the song! They took what I was trying to say, and turned it into the perfect song for the commercial. So, you can thank them for the catchy song that will be stuck in your head all day. Also, they have a recording studio and teach lessons. Check them out!

Also a huge thanks to Brittany the owner of Molly Green, Kelly with Spindle Photography, Nancy McColl and our actress/model Katherine Ross. Look for the commercial to air on Birmingham's ABC 33/40 over the next few months. Make sure you stop by Molly Green and see Brittany. Let her know if you heard about Molly Green through the commercial.
