We had the pleasure of teaming up with two iconic NYC brands while capturing the collaboration between Diane von Furstenberg and the Rockettes. We had an hour to capture the content at Radio City Music Hall while the Rockettes were in between New York Spring Spectacular shows. Check out the piece that we directed, shot and edited below.
We recently went back to Minnesota to shoot video for the Granite City Pond Hockey Championships to help promote and grow Youth Hockey in our hometown of St. Cloud!
The temperature was 1°F (-17°C) but thankfully our gear and our bodies were able to tough it out and capture some beautiful footage.
We were very fortunate to have TSN Blog BarDown pick up the video here!
We were also very happy to have our Mom stop by to snap a nice behind-the-scenes photo:
We joined Surface Magazine at the Armory Show in New York City to capture and create a video for their Design Dialogue series. This is the 4th time that we've teamed up with them to create video content featuring prominent individuals of the design community. See below for the recap video as well as screenshots from 15 second videos that we also edit for Surface to post on their Instagram.
Teaming up with High 5 Games is always a creative adventure. Creative director, Mario Ruiz, and fashion stylist, Lissette Perez, bring the games to life using articulately crafted styling and an unmatched imagination. In this game we follow the story line of newsmen from the 1970's that also double for undercover police officers. We traveled to High 5's headquarters in SoHo and captured everything on greenscreen.

We spent the 2015 Valentine's Day at Pier 59 Studios shooting for Casio G-Shock capturing their collaboration with menswear designer Robert Geller during NY Fashion Week FW 2015.
Under the creative direction of ad agency, Exposure, we had the pleasure of spending a few days with Robert to learn more about his process and how important quality is to him.
Check out the video we shot capturing the spirit of Robert Geller and the durability of Casio G-Shock watches:
We teamed up with photographer, Zave Smith, and the ad agency, Colangelo, to capture this video promo for Davidoff Cigar's Avo Uzevian brand. A special thank you to George Watson at WSW Creative for bringing us on board.

Our work takes us to some pretty incredible places and also gives us the opportunity to promote causes that we believe in. A recent project with the Starkey Hearing Foundation helped us achieve both of those when we teamed up with them to capture the good deeds that they are doing around the world to help combat hearing loss.
This 10 day swing took us to the countries of Rwanda, Malawi and Zambia. The focus of this trip was to provide hearing aids to those with hearing loss and to also train local people to help provide support after the traveling foundation team leaves. Check out some of the photos below:
Rwanda: Over 60 prisoners guilty of crimes during the 1994 Rwandan genocide were allowed to leave their prison for the day in order to receive hearing care.
Malawi: We arrived after three weeks of torrential rains which left more than 300,000 people displaced in one of the poorest countries in the world. Many of the people that we helped fit with hearing aids were able to hear in the past but cases of malaria, smallpox and dengue fever left it's victims without hearing as the diseases are still treated in Africa with medications that adversely affect one's ability to hear. Many of the smiles you see below are brought on by being able to hear for the first time in decades and possibly the first time ever.
Spring has arrived a little bit early for us as we have been shooting and editing for the Rockettes as they prepare to launch their new 2015 show, "New York Spring Spectacular". We have been teaming up with the Rockettes to create 50+ videos since they launched their YouTube channel in June of 2014.
Here are a few pieces of the most recent pieces of content:

We had a blast shooting the 2013 Miss Universe, Gabriela Isler, on green screen in an array of settings that featured a South American adventure, day at the beach, afternoon on the ski slopes and evening in New York City!
See below for the finished video that combines our video work and the digital animation of High 5 Games.
A recent video that we created for AstraZeneca that celebrated World Diabetes Day 2014 gave us the chance to be both creative and help spread good will. Thank you AstraZeneca for the helping further the quality of diabetes treatment!
We recently traveled to San Francisco to create an internal documentary for AMGEN Biotechnologies and Onyx Pharmaceuticals. Onyx is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the development and commercialization of innovative therapies for the treatment of Multiple myeloma. It was a wonderful shoot and we had the opportunity to interview the recently appointed CEO of Onyx, Pablo Cagnoni.
Check out screenshots from the video below and a few photos shooting BROLL around San Francisco.
We recently shot an interview with the man of many titles, Investor, Entrepeneuer, Motivational Speaker, TV Personality, and Author, Daymond John. We had the chance to sit down with him and talk about sports as part of USA Today's 16 part NFL "Pick 'em" series.
Mr. John touched on subjects that covered the intesity of the New York sports fans, an acting role in Sharknado 2 and his love of fishing. Not surprisingly he has actually caught a shark while on a fishing trip! Check out the screenshots below for the view from the FUBU offices on the 66th floor of the Empire State Building.

We recently spent the day at Brooklyn Bridge Pier 5 and Manhattan with Bayern Munich photographing the announcement of the club's new partnership with Global Premiere Soccer (GPS). GPS is a youth soccer academy and that supports over 55,000 children and 5,000 coaches in the United States.

We captured this young girl at a deaf school in Kigali, Rwanda as she waited patiently for her first set of hearing aides thanks to the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Click here to see more photos and videos from hearing missions to Tanzania, Rwanda, and Mexico that we have been lucky to be a part of through the Foundation.
This week's photo of the week comes from Prior Lake, Minnesota. Fall is a beautiful time back in our home state and we were lucky to escape NYC to catch this harvest moon reflecting off the lake.
We traveled to Vienna, Austria to create a series of videos for AstraZeneca in which their executives and healthcare professionals explained the exciting advancements that the company is taking in the field of diabetes care. Check out screenshots from the video below.
We joined in on New York Fashion Week fun by teaming up with IRIS Worldwide UK to create a fashion film for the Adidas NEO Label collection created by Selena Gomez. The collection that was presented on the runway was entirely made up of pieces selected by teens from around the world that submitted their input using Twitter. They not only chose the clothing, but also influenced the music, hair and makeup looks, and set design. The goal of the video was to tell that story while also featuring the clothing on the runway with the added task of turning the edit around within 36 hours of the actual runway show.
Check out the video here (don't forget to play it back in HD!):
Although Wenck Brothers acted as Producer, Director, Director of Photography and Editor, we couldn't have done it without the help of the following people:
Dan Scott Wills (Camera Operator), Peter Porta (Camera Operator), John Colucci (Audio Engineer), Rob Demaio (Grip), Brad Ogbonna (Digital Technician) and Nathan Raabe (Motion Graphics).
A very special thanks to IRIS Worldwide UK and IRIS Worldwide NYC for bringing us on for the project.
We were certainly surprised to see Nick end up on Selena Gomez's Instagram and Facebook page the next day and to also find selfies taken by Selena on Aaron's phone after it acted as the prop phone in the video.
