An Update from the Aero News Desk...

When did it become July?!  If you're a smart aleck and said, "9 days ago," yeah, thanks for that. This year is whizzing by like Maverkick and Goose around a control tower. (I love a good Top Gun reference.) I have made it my July resolution to put my blogging hat on more often so let's get this blog started!

First up: AICP! It rained. That was crappy. Our pre-show shindig at the Peninsula Hotel was a bit damp, but a great turn out. Thanks to all of you who made it and here's hoping we get to use the whole roof next year and not just a sliver. (Thankfully it was the sliver where the drinks are poured…) At the actual show, we are so honored that Ken Arlidge's spot for AMC won in the Spec Spot category. Ken had this idea in his head while shooting his TV show Cajun Justice. He took 2 of the deputies from the show out for an afternoon and shot this gem.

Four days before this win, Cajun Justice premiered on A&E (runs every Thursday at 10pm). You can follow the whole crew from Terrebonne Parish  and see past episodes on the Cajun Justice page on AMCs site. This is Ken's first series, but not the last. Aero Film's development arm is hopping. I'd tell you more, but I don't have enough NDAs to go around. So stay tuned!

Next up: Click here to see our new work! (You may want to pop some corn for your viewing as we have a lot of it!) Austin Smithard has been on fire shooting gorgeous docu-style spots for The Australian Modern Art Museum and Alitalia. Klaus Obermeyer shot a stunning all-americana campaign for Go Rving. Gary McKendry captured what it's like to teach your teenager daughter to drive with Chevy. Ken Arlidge paired up with McGarry Bowen in NY to showcase real stories of businesses benefitting from loans given to them by JP Morgan Chase.  And last on the reel is Indrani's moving work for Girl Epidemic. (Please read all about the Girl Epidemic campaign and Indrani's involvement HERE.)
Accolades! Sam O'Hare's short film Coachelletta was featured at the Vimeo Film Festival in NY. Meanwhile, his film The Sandpit is also still going strong on the Film Festival circuit having screened at the Newport Film Festival as a lead in to the premiere of Gary Hustwit's film Urbanized, the third film in his design trilogy. The Sandpit was also chosen to be part of the permanent collection at MOMA in NYC. Screenings start this summer!

And last but not least, Indrani! Her film "The Legend of Lady White Snake" starring Daphne Guinness is headlining the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival. She joins the company of fellow commercial directors Bruno Aveillan and Jonas Akerlund. This is the 3rd annual film festival and is the largest gathering of fashion film makers in the world. Festival runs July 26-28th.


I promise more blogs to come this summer! Big news is brewing! How's that for a cliffhanger? DUM DUM DUUUUUUM.
