May was a busy time for Sugar Cube Entertainment. A broad mix of clients and events had us working both in studio and on site.
The month saw an interesting cross section of clients to our door starting with The Princess Auto for Tallman Foundation (May 4, 6 and 7). We used their studio space to produce a number of interviews for them for their upcoming awards event.
May 5 – Manitoba Egg Farmers Event
The 5th brought us a perfect spring day. And that gave us an excuse to break out the big lens for the Manitoba Egg Farmers 50th Anniversary birthday event.
It’s always interesting getting out of the studio to work a fluid event and have a bit of fun. The beautiful weather didn’t hurt either.
May 10 – Christine Vetus Headshots
Back inside for Christine Vetus headshots!
Christine is an entertainer and actor, and Nick was doing his first professional headshot session.
And of course, everyone wants to check out how they look.
More work with the Tallman Foundation and some exciting news
After the headshots, it was time to get the studio ready for more work with the Tallman Foundation. We wrapped up with The Tallman Foundation on the 12th with more interviews in our studio.
May 12 also brought some exciting news for Scott Carnegie and Sugar Cube. Richard the Third was nominated for 2 awards at the IndieX Film Festival in Hollywood. Scott worked as Director of Photography for this short which was nominated for Best Comedy and Best Romantic Short.
May 14 Weddings, film & decisions
Shooting weddings with Stardust Photography means deciding what equipment to pack. Which lenses will be needed, what will create the best shots? Decisions to be made!
All packed up and ready to go. There is no such thing as having too many lenses and cameras, just not enough space for all of them, so tough choices had to be made.
But there’s always room for the big lens and spontaneous photos.
May 20 – WEM Workplace Connections
There wasn’t much time to catch our breath after shooting with Stardust. There’s more to taking pictures than clicking a button. Processing, evaluating the work and choosing the best to be processed all need to be done. Between the Stardust dates (May 14 and 21), we were at Workplace Education Manitoba to shoot material for a new pilot project they are launching called Workplace Connections.
May 28 – Mary Black for Kids Help Phone
We ended May on a high note. It was our pleasure to work with motivational speaker and entrepreneur Mary Black and her foundation Mary Black for Kids Help Phone. Over the course of a few days, we shot several videos featuring her (and produced by her father Ryan Black).
We had a bit of fun rounding up everything possible from our office space to give the set a friendly, inviting feeling. Plants, guitars, and anything we could fit in helped create the right atmosphere.
Mary brought a beautiful blanket with her, and we incorporated it into the set, giving a distinctive, personal touch to her videos.
