Top Chef Finalist Gregory Gourdet
When Chef Gregory Gourdet was selected as a finalist on Bravo’s show “Top Chef,” Runner’s World asked us to interview him in his Portland-based restaurant, Departure, as he showed how to prepare the perfect runner’s lunch. (Not only is Gregory Gourdet an accomplished chef, but he is also an ultra marathoner.)
Fill-Lite asked us to produce a series of explainer videos to demonstrate their line of LED soft lights. These lights are used by many high end cinematographers due to their color accurate light, which resulting soft light creates even lighting and flattering skin tones. We created ten videos showing various features of their three main products. Below is a sample of three of those videos.
Beaverton Chamber of Commerce:
We’ve created over four dozen videos for members of the Beaverton Chamber of Commerce. For many of the small businesses within the Chamber, this is their company’s first video and they heavily utilize it on their website and social media. With search engine optimization (SEO) being crucial in today’s internet age, these videos are a huge step forward in promoting their company’s services, brand, and personality.
Additionally, the Beaverton Chamber of Chamber includes these member videos within the Chamber’s directory listings, allowing people conducting searches to view each company’s video within their posting.
Indie Cinema Academy:
We not only create compelling videos for others, but we also share our film making secrets at our online film school, Indie Cinema Academy. With over two decades of experience on set, we have a lot of tricks of the trade hidden up our sleeve. We develop all our own lesson plans, then brainstorm fun ways to present the information. From beginning to end, we produce, direct, edit, and distribute all of our own content. Below are two examples.
A Public Service Announcement
One of our first projects as Bleeding Thorn Films was a simple little public service announcement, using speeches from two historic Americans: Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln.
“I Want To See You Tonight” Music Video
Enric Sifa is a singer songwriter, inspirational speaker, and Rwandan genocide survivor. His African Dance Soul music has delighted hundreds of thousands, and his motivational speeches teach students to overcome adversity and aspire to greatness.
Enric donates a portion of his profits to support budding entrepreneurs in Africa, so we in turn donated our music video to him.
