Hita & Hill at Minnesota's 24th Annual Oscar Experience

Once again, Anahita and Hillary killed it as the very gracious and funny red carpet hosts for Minnesota’s 24th Annual Oscars Experience held at the Showplace Icon X movie theater in Saint Louis Park, MN. There is never a dull moment with these two goofballs!

Sponsored by the Twin Cities Film Fest and the Aegis Foundation, the Oscar Experience was a hit with all of the guests dressed up for the special occasion. It was a lot of fun to be able to shoot such excited and outgoing people as they arrived for what was to be a magical evening with the stars.

Working with Anahita and Hillary is such a treat. It never feels like I’m working when on the job with them.

The next event that we will be working together will be “What She Said/by Niche Debut” at W Minneapolis – The Foshay in downtown Minneapolis.

Dawn Marie - Not Fade Away Music Video

Working with Dawn was a real treat! This was not only Dawn’s first professional music video but also ours. We both were very pleased with the results and had a ton of fun shooting around the Saint Anthony Main, Stone Arch Bridge, and downtown Minneapolis for the location. Accompanying Dawn in the video was Steve Mann, her boyfriend both on and off screen and he nailed it.

The song was “Not Fade Away”, a Buddy Holly cover. We wanted to shoot during autumn not just for the colors but also to fit with the theme of the song. The couple’s relationship was on the verge of fading away until Dawn was able to spur life back into Steve by going out on a date on the town. It goes to show that love begets love and it’s the little moments that we share together that can make all the difference.

We look forward to working with Dawn again on her next music video!
