C & P got the opportunity to spend the day shooting Back40House on this beautiful fall day in Pendleton!

Chris was definitely in his element, with many prime opportunities to “wave his arms around“; sometimes while in conversation, and other times while motioning for Paul to reposition props.

Besides helping stage the shots, Paul enthusiastically interacted with people, spaces and dogs.  It was a good day all-around!

We’ve Moved to G BLOC!

We have moved our studio to G BLOC in Broad Ripple North Village right next to the Monon Trail!

It’s been a long COVID-influenced, socially-distanced 12 months, and we are very much looking forward to the future.  In fact, we are all back together in one space again!

Although we are still keeping socially distanced (for the most-part), it’s great to be able to communicate and collaborate with team members in-person again.

If you are in the area, please stop by G BLOC for a visit!
