"Leverage" is Back!

Leverage

“Leverage” is back!  And they are bigger than before!  Season 3 of “Leverage” has begun principal photography and they are due to shoot sixteen episodes this year.  Word is that some local crew has been promoted this year and thanks to Lana Veenker’s “Boot Camp” earlier in the year, we hope to hear of even more local thugs cast in the show.  And for those “Leverage” fans, please be sure to check out the link below about the upcoming “Con-Con”!  March 19-21 at the Governor Hotel in Portland.

FMYI (for my innovation) organizes customers’ video and film production, makes “A New Day” video of their own

Is your production information slipping through the cracks? Mine was. Then, my best friend from 3rd grade told me about a system he’d just created for Nike solving this exact problem. Together, we customized FMYI to handle the unique pressures of the production world. As a producer of nationally syndicated programs for over 10 years, I knew that creating television, film or new media has a seemingly endless number of moving pieces, making good communication within a team critical. With today’s tighter budgets and people working from dispersed locations production has become even more difficult.

Featured Video: Portland, Oregon

Oh Stumptown…

A video to sell Portland. Tough. If you are familiar with the region, you know what an easy sell it is. Ohhh, but try condensing it into a 3:00-4:00 minute video. Sockeye has deep Portland roots—so it was a labor of love. After 15 months of shooting at countless locations, and 80 hours of footage they clearly left a lot on the cutting room floor.

The goal was to show the evolution of Portland. Sure people know it is green, western and outdoorsy.

Filmin' in the Rain and Other Oregon Myths

By David Poulshock


My best friend is writing a musical called RAIN. He’s a master at irony and his show is set in a globally-warmed future when rain no longer falls in Portland. Its anthem is “What’s Portland Without the Rain?” Obama had to have his John McCain / Send out Lewis without a Clark? That’s insane / Would you Bogey without Bacall / What’s a Taj with no Mahal / So what’s the point of Portland without the rain? 1.
