Max Curious had the opportunity to shoot footage at the NY Botanical Gardens in the Bronx as a part of the ongoing video series we are shooting with AFAR Media. Karen Daubmann, AVP Exhibitions and Public Engagement was truly inspiring and a great interview subject...and she brought an incredible amount of wardrobe options for us to choose from. Special thanks to Gayle Snible of the NYBG PR department for pulling out all the stops. Being surrounded by so much of nature's beauty make for a really good day at work.
Max Curious will be working with AFAR travel magazine to produce the video component of their new 'Artisans Inspired' series that explores NYC artisans and powerful memories that inspire them. Our first video features Sarah Simmons the founder of City Grit. She is a chef innovator and powerhouse! City Grit = Yum.

Thank you the Management and Staff at CompleteBody Fitness for pulling out the stops for a successful shoot....hot and sweaty models, a indoor rock climbing wall, and an intense XT class...could you ask for anything more.
Max Curious was hired by AETV to shoot red carpet interviews with the cast of Bonnie & Clyde, which premiers simultaneously on A&E, History, and Lifetime on Sunday, December 5th. Thanks Ben Asher - great job with interviews of Emile Hirsch, Holliday Grainger, William Hurt, and others.
Multi-camera shoot of some killer comedy at BAM. Thank you IFC for the opportunity and thank you Heineken for the free comedy in Brooklyn. Great audience, great comedy, great footage.

Ready, set, go...shoot and edit a quick green screen video and edit a snappy animation video for David Trachtenberg and vRad (Virtual Radiologic). Done.
Max Curious was working against the clock at CT Corporation's headquarters in the Google Building in NYC. We had two promo videos to shoot in a short time. We raced like spazzes to get job done and managed to finish before the elevators shut down...now time to edit. Check out the finished product below.
A whirlwind shoot...in our little office, on a shoestring budget, with tight deadlines. Shot footage for the teaser for Sundance Channel's new series Dream School. Thank you Sundance Chanel Producer, Lisa Esselstein. Art direction by Alan Lampert and Emily Russell.
Shooting footage with Phillip Cooley, who is transforming downtown Detroit with his efforts at Ponyride and Slows BBQ. The edit for the next installment of Sundance Channel's Human Kind series featuring Phil Cooley and his team begins tomorrow. The Sundance and Buick executives were on set as we shot great interviews, b-roll, and the Detroit skyline...really impressed with the transformative efforts of Phil Cooley. Great guy, great work, great town! Special thank you to our satellite Detroit-based crew!
Max Curious is working in Memphis, TN with our favorite DNB client Pat McParland. We are conducting an interview at Fedex HQ. Had time to squeeze in a trolly ride, excellent BBQ, and a walk along the Mississippi River.
Shooting another installment of Sundance Channel's Human Kind series with artist David Weeks. He's a lighting & furniture designer, a toy designer, a painter, sculptor, metal worker, and a very nice guy. He welcomed us with open arms into his very cool Dumbo, Brooklyn studio and we spent the day with him and his team.
The crew brought some Max Curious magic to the Mark Ashby Media and shoot at Bravo Studios here in NYC. We added some movement to the shots by mounting the camera on a dolly and track. Great interviews, great footage, and great food (thanks Krista!). The edit begins tomorrow. Thanks team Max Curious!
The Max Curious Pro crew was shooting footage at the Betty & Coretta premiere last night at the Tribeca Cinemas in New York City. It was a crowded, fun event. Celebs were on the red carpet... Angela Bassett, Mary J. Blige, Ruby Dee, and others. The World Premiere of Betty & Coretta is this Saturday at 8pm! Annelise Paull was on camera and Dafydd Cooksey on sound.
Nothing like having a country/western finger-lickin' smorgasboard BBQ right in the middle of Midtown Manhattan. It was a tough week at the office bringin' the cattle home, hog tying the loose ones and cleaning boot spurs...but right after we cleared the hay from the office...we headed on over to Country Hill BBQ.
Wonderful shoot day in Manhattan! We got incredible high school b-roll thanks to Rex Bobbish, Principle of The Cinema School, in the Bronx. The students there were remarkably professional and helpful. We hope we added to their experience and inspired them to continue film studies . We also got excellent footage at DonorsChoose.org offices.
Sundance asked us to shoot footage of regular people on the street quoting their favorite lines from the movie "The Princess Bride." Our first and ONLY response to Sundance was - "As You Wish!" The thought of saying no was just "INCONCEIVABLE!" This was such a great fun shoot right in midtown Manhattan with all the huge holiday decorations going on and all the great "people on the street" contributing their individual talents...It was just magic! - Thanks to Lisa Esselstein, from Sundance, for directing all of us!
People, lighting, camera and sound all come together to make your product look great!
The custom bars go into action along with some great crew and crafty talent!
