epic systems corporation
Verona, wisconsin

Epic Systems Corporation houses a truly unique campus including a castle, an underground tube station, a tree house conference room and many other whimsical themed architectural elements; to say this is not your usual corporate campus is a vast understatement. The project included a scouting visit, a lot of pre-production work, a first production site visit to film the yearly UGM (user Group Meeting) convention, in which 11,000+ people attend and is held in the largest subterranean privately owned auditorium in the country. A second week long production site visit that would encapsulate the campus and our narrators via a series of interviews and a lot of b-roll. Then a third and final production site visit a few months later for additional shots where the weather was not our friend and our last interview.
We created a total of three films: The introduction to Epic Systems Corporation, the design of ESC Campus and the truly epic ESC Deep Space subterranean auditorium.

ATKA
Aleutian Islands, Bering Sea

Life on Atka can be tough! Atka is one of the larger volcanic islands that form the Aleutian Islands chain. Located in the Bering Sea eleven hundred miles from the coast of Alaska, to say it is remote is an understatement! The current population fluctuates between fifty to sixty people, and for those islanders, as one can imagine, day to day living can be extreme and hazardous, and as such, considerations to injuries and healthcare are paramount. This short film depicts islanders day-to-day life, current healthcare procedures and health clinic challenges.
