Who needs beaches and Mai-Tais when you can have great Kentucky scenery and a camera? Videobred’s editor and shooter, Eric Stemen, spent his vacation last month driving around eastern Kentucky and shooting time lapses. His goal for the project was to create a two and a half to three minute video showcasing what the region is really like.
Over the past month or so, it has not been uncommon for Videobred regulars to walk in the front door and immediately stop in their tracks, jaws dropped, and say something along the lines of “Oh, wow. It’s different in here.” Thanks to the unstoppable duo of Ben Newkirk and Zach Stewart (one of our very talented tenants), the VB lobby is now boasting new wood floors, a new rug, framed production stills, and two original Kentucky-themed murals on the wall, which nearly span from ceiling to floor.
While the new floors are shiny, and the production stills include a few familiar faces in them, it’s the murals that grab most of the attention.
Today, our VB Alum spotlight is on former intern Gina Durkan! Gina was with us during the summer of 2011 after she graduated from Western Kentucky with a degree in broadcasting and English. Now she’s working in Nashville for ABC/Lionsgate. We’re proud of Gina’s success, but we definitely miss her wit, talent, and her ability to edit gems such as the “Chronicles of Bacon,” which follows Archie (Steve Hurst’s dog) on his quest to find bacon at Videobred. To see what Gina’s been up to as of late, check out her interview below:
Whether you cheer for the Cards or the Cats, we can all agree that the Cards did a great job representing the city of Louisville at the Sugar Bowl. In this entry, receptionist Rachel Shulhafer explains just how awesome the Cardinal victory was for her:
On an otherwise forgettable December day at Videobred, the phone rang.
“Good morning, Videobred,” I answered. I expected to hear a familiar voice of one of our clients, but I was way off. I instead I heard the pre-recorded voice of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard playing in the background.
