Slab BBQ-Slow, Low and Bangin’

Slab BBQ is an independently owned BBQ restaurant in Austin, TX. We had the pleasure of interviewing the founder, Mark Avalos, as part of a recent promotional video we filmed. The influential hip-hop and rap culture of south Texas is hard to miss when you step inside their restaurant which helped guide the theme of this short. They are the real deal when it comes to Texas BBQ.

Rowing Dock-Fourth of July Promo

This short promo was created for the Rowing Dock located on Town Lake in Austin, TX. The Rowing Dock is one of the hippest and well managed kayak/SUP outfitters in downtown and hired us to complete this just in time for their summer rush. They had the idea of putting a grill on a SUP so after weeks of collaboration we were able to build a custom made craft composed of two SUP's tied together with a solid plywood underbelly-strong enough to withstand any wake. We had about 1 hour to film this entire sequence before it rained cats and dogs, no joke.
