Last thursday the Catholic Church kicked off the Year of Faith. We are working with the Diocese of Madison to produce a series of videos covering the many topics and reasons for the Year of Faith. You can watch the first video in our portoflio section here. Eight videos will follow each focusing on a single topic and will also be narrated by Fr. Chad of the intro video. Follow the Diocese of Madison on YouTube to keep up to date!

Update: The video is now on their website! Neat.
My wife is amazing. She makes wedding gowns. Beautiful gowns that people love. She was recently invited to provide the gowns for a few photo shoots. Commonly wedding photographers, planners, caterers, florists, etc. come together to put on a wedding photo shoot to advertise their services. The first photo shoot ended up in Wisconsin Bride magazine and the second ended up on Style Me Pretty, a prominent wedding blog.
With my wife leaving for the day for the photoshoot, I figured ‘Hey, why don’t I come along and shoot video.’ I did, and this is the result. It was a blast to shoot and everyone was very accommodating and enthusiastic about this random guy who showed up to shoot some video.
Ryan posted this on his blog and we wanted to share:
My daughters were in a photo shoot put on by Three Cheers Creative. John’s (Backflip Films partner) son Rowan was also in the shoot. Being filmmakers, we decided to bring our video equipment along and shoot the shoot. The cupcakery was very tight, especially when you add 9 adults and 5 kids into the entrance, so filming was interesting. We ended up with enough good footage to put together a short video.
Special thanks to Chris Ballew aka Caspar Babypants for letting us use his song ‘Ramshackle’ to provide the perfect ambiance for the piece. Best kid music ever: http://babypantsmusic.com/
Backflip Films’ second generation (Ryan’s daughters and John’s son) were in a photoshoot for Three Cheers Creative. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity so we brought our camera along and filmed it. We ended up with just enough footage to fit into a short video.
Students, staff, and parents share the aspects of Assumption High School that make it “the place to be!”
Footage and interviews were filmed in several trips over the spring and fall in order to capture the varying seasons and activities that take place during the school year.
We had the pleasure of accompanying the Wisconsin Farmer’s Union on the 2011 Renewable Energy tour earlier this summer. This video was produced to summarize the trip around southwestern Wisconsin and to inspire farmers and policy makers all across the state to take another look at renewable energy.
Riding around southwestern Wisconsin on a bio-diesel school bus with no air-conditioning in 100 degree weather proved to be quite the test for our camera. The Canon 5D mark ii passed the test with flying colors!
This video was produced for St. Paul’s University Catholic Center on the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus. It shares the personal stories of students past and present in order to tell an emotional story. This was shot entirely in downtown Madison, at St. Paul’s and around the campus.
We recently got the chance to help Madison Children’s Museum celebrate it’s 1st birthday at it’s new location in downtown Madison, WI. This video was produced for MCM’s Wonderball Black-tie event on August 6th. The piece highlights popular exhibits and areas in the museum, explains the positive impact on the surrounding community, and addresses the need for continued support to keep the museum accessible for all who would like to visit.
We would like to visit! You can bet that Ryan and I will be visiting the museum with our families the first chance we get. If the video didn’t convince you, It sure it convinced us.
This is our freshly minted demo reel. When assessing our marketing and advertising we realized our demo was in desperate need of an update.
Everything on our demo was shot and edited by us. We’ve had so many great projects to include but we wanted to keep it short. If a company can’t hook you in the first minute of their reel then maybe they’re not a company you want to work with
This music video is in remembrance of the earthquake in Haiti one year ago. To all the victims, ‘You are not alone.’
The video was shot on our canon XHA1 with a set of nikon prime lenses (35, 50 and 80). John directed/edited, Ryan was the cinematographer and Aaron pa’ed.
Aaron Thompson is a local Catholic artist who wrote this song shortly after the earthquake in Haiti. Check him out at: www.aaronthompsonmusic.com.

Ryan created this video for the University of Wisconsin System. It is for a new library catalog system called Forward. Forward is a web software system that improves upon the UW library catalog. The video was done primarily in After Effects with SoundBooth for the audio recording.
