A friend of mine from high school is the co-owner of a relatively new and relatively terrific production company based in Raleigh, North Carolina. While in Sydney over the past few years, I wrote a number of commercial scripts for them; some samples are included in my Linkedin portfolio.
One series of three videos we collaborated on was done for the Raleigh News & Observer. I wrote the first two scripts (Raw Talent & The Birdbrain Politician) while in Sydney, and then directed and managed a cameo appearance in the third (Troubled Water) when I returned to the US for a time in the new year. See if you can spot me.
I also pitched them a parody to submit for the Doritos Crash the Superbowl contest this year, which they produced.
