The Nest

This is a local television commercial running in the Columbia, SC market. The Nest is a home appliance store owned and operated by Cregger Company. We filmed and edited this video as the video production arm of Sting Creative. Cregger has been a longtime client of Hendrik and Erin van Vuuren, the owners of Sting. Located in downtown Columbia, our objective was to show the general public that The Nest sells the highest end appliances, plumbing fixtures and lighting. We had 30 seconds to cover as much of the store as possible. Our motorized, programmable Rhino Slider and Arc really came in handy to get smooth panning shots of the rooms. We also made ample use of the MoVi M5 to capture our actors moving throughout the showroom. This was a one day shoot and a single day edit.


Bedgear Impact Day

“CEO Eugene Alletto says he’s thrilled to have part of his Bedgear operations in Rock Hill. Each year, he leads a “Day of Impact” to give back to the community. Alletto, who founded the maker of “performance” pillows, bedding and mattresses in 2009, joined 80 of his employees at Bedgear’s Rock Hill site on Langston Street to assemble 100 care packages in backpacks to donate to Pilgrims’ Inn shelter.

The shelter primarily helps homeless and low-income women and young children get back on their feet. It offers support services such as housing, education and job placement assistance, food pantries and child care.” – Rock Hill Herald

The above video summarizes the above charitable works in addition to Bedgear annual meeting at their production facility in Rock Hill.


Erskine Web Series

Erskine College is a venerable institution in Upstate South Carolina. My alma mater approached me about producing a web series to aid enrollment and advancement. Below are a few of my favorite episodes. The series contract ran for two years leading up to the 175th anniversary of the college and was hosted by fellow alum, Corey Emanuel. I learned a lot producing these pieces. Each video varied greatly from the last. At times we were filming Corey perched on a rock above a raging river at the National Whitewater Center. I had to learn how to control audio in that situation. Other times I was clinging to the exterior sideboard of an ancient Ford Model A filming an interview as the subjects drove through campus. It was a joy to return to Erskine years later and create something that hopefully still continues to benefit the school and community.

“We run a small in-house shop and rely solely on external partners for design and media content. Drew worked with our team to develop concepts and produce a web series telling our story with authenticity and beauty. Drew could hear and see my team’s vision. The resulting deliverables were a quantum leap in quality over previous materials we had produced for advancement and enrollment. Three years out, we still use the pieces as they were so capably produced.”
