Robot Monkey Head and National Inclusion Project featuring Clay Aiken

Robot Monkey Head from John Hadfield on Vimeo.

John Hadfield, a buddy from Clown College, had Ish and I come up to Newark, Delaware over Halloween weekend and we shot this crazy music video. Great people, great food, great fun. From what John tells me, it already has been seen online in over 35 countries. That's a lot of countries! More info on John and his cool live shows here

National Inclusion Project from nic beery on Vimeo.

This is the National Inclusion Project Capital Campaign video that produced this summer. Ish and I traveled to Boston and Raleigh for the shoots. Jay Manley did the terrific instrumental music. It premiered at the October 17th "Champions' Gala" and I am happy to report that NIP and Clay Aiken raised over $250,000 for the foundation.

Thanks to Kristy Barnes, Clay Aiken, Gerry Aiken, and Aaron, it was great working with you and getting to know you. Much continued success to NIP!

A November to be Thankful

Well we did it! I really didn't expect it to happen so soon, but EVERY SHORT we made this year has won an award. Yep, Our Doc MELTING OF THE GLOBE won the Audience Award for Best Doc at The Secret City Film Festival.

Then, FRAME, our coming of age short narrative (female version) won Best Drama at The Seguin Film Festival.

And to finish off, our newest short, the other coming of age short narrative (male version) BEN PICKLE, won Best Short at The Ava Gardner Film Festival.

So, I'm thinking, nothing else can happen, right? Well last Friday night I get the Nashville they announced the nominees for this years regional EMMY's. Yes sir ree, we snagged a nom for Sarah Huck's Choking Game PSA. We were honored to help her produce this important spot.

Lucky us. Doing what we love and finding audiences all over the world.

Thank you all who voted for our little, sweet films. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
