Behind The Scenes of the P&G/Home Depot Shoot

Sometimes I have things come into my life because of this little blog that make me have to pinch myself just to make sure that I am still awake.  This fun experience caused a.lot. of pinching.  I have worked with P&G quite a few times for different campaigns.  Last Nov/Dec. they came to me with an idea.  They wanted to shoot a little video series and a room makeover .  Um YES!!!

In my mind it was me, a camera guy and maybe some sort of director…Imagine my surprise when just a few days before it was set to happen I found out that it was a camera guy, a sound guy, a director, and 3 of my friends from the PR agency.  It hit me then that this is sort of a big deal…

The room that I decided to overhaul in 3 short days was a spare room at my Mother In Law’s.  You remember her living room and kitchen makeovers from last year right? 

This room is rarely used and  was sort of a catch-all for anything that needed a home.  We decided to turn it into an office and to make the closet more functional for the storage that Alicia needs.




Once we cleared everything out of the room we could see how much space we actually had to work with.



It was a great blank slate.

P&G wanted to film as much of the room makeover as possible, so I was pretty much allowed to paint.  Everything else needed to wait.

Here are a few behind the scene pictures. 






It was SUCH an amazing experience.  I cant wait to show you guys everything on Friday!!

Love Your Guts
