Overdue 15 Minutes of Fame

When you’ve been working for the same client for five years, making dozens of commercials, promos and event films for their numerous dealerships like Porsche, BMW, Ford, Audi, Infiniti, Subaru … just to name a few … you easily overlook other departments. Well, the opportunity finally came to pass for...

Cool Art!!

  What a cool idea. Creating a free art workshop for kids on the outdoor terrace at the the Hunterdon Art Museum. It’s called the “Katherine Trubek Weekend on the Terrace” and it’s an ongoing series planned for two Sundays a month thru the end of October. If nothing else,...

A Porsche or a Victoria’s Secret Model?

Making S.W.A.T Squirm

With all the news about the militarization of police, drone strikes on civilian targets and NSA snooping on our email, phones and computer, you probably missed the news that 511 Tactical came out with a new powerful set of door breaching tools for police, fire and S.W.A.T. And we were...

61 Million Americans

When we were first approached by NewBridge Services in Morris County about creating a film that could help them raise money, I admit I was at first stymied. Newbridge Services provides services and housing for the mentally ill and with all the negative press associated with mental illness, it wasn’t...
