The best miserable day we’ve had

A mix of freezing rain, wind, and snow really put a damper on our shoot for the Pine Street Inn, but it turned out to be exactly what we needed! Shooting the promo piece for the Pine Street Inn in such dismal weather conditions not only gave us the opportunity to bring our video concept to life, but also gave us the chance to experience what it was like to be exposed to such harsh elements for an extended period of time. Going into the shoot, no one could have predicted the feelings we would all have at the end of the day. There was an overall greater appreciation for the warm homes we are fortunate to return to each night. We felt an extreme sense of pride creating such a strong awareness video for the Pine Street Inn to help fight homelessness. Take a look through our photos and experience what this long but fulfilling day was like!

Take a look at our finished commercial!
