I wanted to let you know that our studio won the prestigious Photo District News 2007 PIX DIGITAL AWARD in the Advertising Category. We were up against some really tough world-wide competition. Ads for Puma, BMW and Salvation Army were also winners. The image was shot for Albertsons “Crazy About Food” Campaign. We are extremely honored by this award. Especially since we art directed, produced, and did all the post production work in house! Here is a link to the contest page at PDN. http://www.pdngallery.com/contests/pixdigital/2007/.
I went to New York, with my daughter, in December to attend the awards ceremony and party at Splashlight Studios. PDN threw a insane party. Splashlight Studios is near the meatpacking district on the west side of Manhattan. The studio is incredible. 2 stories with 5 or 6 actual shooting areas. They use it primarily as a rental studio. They have a outside patio on the second floor with views of midtown.
It was my daughters first time there. We had a unreal time. Very nice time of the year in the city. Saw the Dakota, (John Lennon’s House) Strawberry Fields, Ground Zero. Went to the Top of the Rock at night- unbelievable. Ate at Trump’s , saw his kid heading into the building. Had some great sushi. Some of the images from the trip are on the site.
