Eukanuba Sponsors the American Kennel Club National Championship

What do you get when you cross talent, agility and the best-looking dogs in the country? The American Kennel Club National Championship! This year it was sponsored by Eukanuba, the pet nutritionists and enthusiasts, and they “treated” us to a great show. The AKC Championship was a weekend filled with all dog breeds showcasing their talent and their relationship with their owner. From military dogs to service dogs, it wasn’t so much a dog eat dog world as it was a dog of all kinds world. A spaniel cocker in the sporting group named Striker ended up taking home the title of “Best in Show.”

Going Live at the AKC National Championship with The Brighton Agency

How do you showcase the hundreds of dogs competing in the most visually pleasing way? Call upon the Brighton Agency, a camera operator and then shoot LIVE! Our cam op crew told us all about his experience: “I’m a big fan of shooting live content, especially since we’re able to do everything that we normally do with videos we edit after each shoot - live! The client is able to get something out there to the world when they really want to release it, without all the slowdown of post work. This type of client and event flips the entire video industry on its head from the way we normally shoot. I mean, I was using my iPhone! It’s a new way of doing things while retaining the quality that everyone expects. I also have a dog, which made the event that much more exciting.”

Highlighting the Best in Show at the AKC National Championship

What were some of the highlights from the event? Glad you asked. We interviewed a marine and her military working dog for a touching and inspiring story. We interviewed an employee from Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that works to pair service dogs with people with disabilities for free. We interviewed the operations manager of North American Diving Dogs or NADD, a league dedicated to dock diving, one of the fastest growing sports for dogs. And we also captured lots of tricks, training, diving and agility throughout the entire event.

We love working on shoots that keep us on our paws - I mean toes. Thank you to the Brighton Agency for letting us tag along on such an exciting shoot. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event!  

Citizen Pictures: Gelato and Angels

Combining Italian desserts with Los Angeles flair - Gelato and Angels was a great shop to highlight for Citizen Pictures and Food Network's ice cream week. 

Citizen Pictures: Gelato and Angels

The story started in the city of angels, where the now-owners met and fell in love. While traveling, they noticed a lack of gelato stores compared to their hometown in Italy. The idea of opening their own gelato shop was born! The couple was fun to work with and their shop stayed busy with people in and out all day long. 

Discovery Canada: Earthquake Resistant Pipes

Some water pipes are so old that when an earthquake hits, they are destroyed and can no longer flow water for emergency needs. Experts at Cornell University want to solve this problem. Discovery Canada highlighted their research for CTV News Channel. 

Discovery Canada: Testing for Earthquakes

Testing Water Pipes' Strength Against Earthquakes

The experts at Cornell University have one goal - provide the water industry with pipes that are more resilient to natural disasters. They are hoping to achieve this goal by testing different pipe products to provide the best solutions. On this shoot they recreated the conditions of an earthquake to see how different pipes held up against major weight and pressure. One in particular exceeded their expectations and they were very pleased.

Discovery Canada and CTV News Channel

Discovery Canada, sister to America's Discovery Channel, is devoted to all things nature, adventure, science and technology. We love helping them highlight these stories. CTV News Channel is owned by the same company that Discovery Canada is - Bell Media - so they frequently work together. CTV is a 24-hour news channel broadcasting national and international headlines. 

It was so great to see that researchers are putting their heads together to solve this problem. Thank you for showing that story Discovery Canada

Black Tap's "Crazy Shakes" were put on the menu by the owner who opened the restaurant to impress his wife whose favorite food combo is a burger and shake. The venue is equal parts gourmet and hip. It's a must-try for every foodie living in or visiting New York City.

Sports Illustrated: Football in Texas

From peewee to high school, from college to pro - football in Texas really is bigger. Sports Illustrated has been highlighting football in cities and states across the country and we were lucky enough for them to call us to help highlight Texas.

Peewee Football in Texas

We started at peewee football game in Irving, TX. What do the coaches have to say about the boys? “They’re just having fun.” And what do the boys have to say about the game? “I asked my mom if I can play football for all my life.”

High School Football in Texas

Friday night lights means something different in Euless, TX. We covered a Trinity High School football game where they ended up defeating their opponent. The students, the cheerleaders, the stadium - “so that’s kind of how Friday nights go around here.”

College Football in Texas

“Fear the Frog” was the name of the game for Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX. We got to tailgate with die-hard fans, ranging in age from 1 to 100. Fans consider TCU tailgating to be a sport in its own right.

Pro Football in Texas

Then there’s the Dallas Cowboys. They eat sleep and breathe football. It’s called America’s team for a reason. People from all over the world came to watch the game we attended. The atmosphere was electric - fans, cheerleaders, tailgating, and victory.

Pro Football in Texas

The camera and audio operators we crewed for this shoot had a blast documenting Texas football culture. Thanks for having us Sports Illustrated! What city/state will you guys cover next?

Citizen Pictures: Ruimilk

I scream you scream... It's ice cream week on Food Network and Citizen Pictures had us gather great content for them. They sent us to the yummy Ruimilk in Queens for some of that content.

Ruimilk makes unique ice cream using a technique he learned in Taiwan. It's half soft serve half cotton candy with Instagram-worthy designs on them. When this shop opened there were five other ice cream shops on the block, but now they are the only one! They pride themselves on being #1.
