A blank piece of paper from the Simmon’s crew. We got to make the Grantland launch spots, and Dave Jacoby of @jalenandjacoby fame was the freaking client.
Working with our all-time favorite, Phil Joanou, the look and lighting here is as good as it gets with, sadly now gone, Harris Savides (Fincher’s guy!) as the DP.
Location: The legendary Pete’s Tavern. Yes, they gave us the keys and let us have it for 2 days and nights. Phil and Harris’s film here is crazy cool, Haje got to bury a bunch of inside jokes in the spots, and a wrap party to remember (or not) at Pete’s Tavern. Perfection.
