And for all of you iPhone & iPad users:

As we enter the second month of the new decade, let’s take a quick look over what Born Lucky been up to in its early days.

We begin 2010 in NYC on another shoot for Cause & {Effect}, working on Black History Month spots for Nickelodeon.

See the spots here: (1 -10 are spots we shot on Sony EX-1 and EX-3, 11-13 were shot on our RED camera, by the talented Steven Huber.)

From there we endeavored on our first stop motion film; ‘Frosty goes on Holiday’. Shot in one evening, the film was a test of some of the new features, at least to Emily and I, of the RED.

Last week, we spend time working in and around NYC for Cause & {Effect} on a shoot for Nickelodeon. The shoot consisted of Emily & I, Michelle Cuccuini (our wonderful producer) and the rest of the crew, going to three differing households and capturing the days of the families there.

The idea: to show how the mother of the family is the glue. That without her, families would have a hard time functioning. (And since the families we shot included husbands that we’re out of work, worked 14 hour days, and we non-entities, this couldn’t have been truer.)

The filming was conducted on a Panasonic HPX2000, which I had the pleasure of learning on at National Geographic during the time I spent on GeoSessions. We mixed the audio on our Sound Devices 4 Channel Mixer. And since this shoot was a run and gun operation, we fed the audio directly to the camera.

It was a wonderful shoot. All the families, and crew, were a pleasure to be around.
