DAY 12

I think we’re hitting our stride, you guys. When Matt comes back, we’re going to have this down to a science. It helps that Hassan, our engineer, doesn’t let us help pack the car anymore. (He has a system and we would just mess it up.) We left Greenville and headed north. In Charlotte, we stopped at a local park to meet up with McKinsey (@McKinseyHarris) from News 14 and Sam Spencer (@choosesam), President of Young Democrats of North Carolina. We talked about the Democratic National Convention, and Sam’s first campaign at the age of 20. We also talked to him about which conservatives...

DAY 11

Atlanta to Greenville, SC is a short drive, so we stopped for breakfast in Jefferson at my friend Leah’s house. Leah made an incredible breakfast (thank you!), and we got to spend some time talking politics and biscuits and children. Leah has four children. FOUR. She is essentially a superhero. Robert drew us pictures and latched himself on to Hassan. Richard avoided us, but occasionally shot us a suspicious look. Elizabeth ignored us. And Susan threw a chicken at Evans. It was the most fun breakfast ever. When we got to Greenville, we went straight to Relentless Tattoo to meet up with Rex...

DAY 10

According to @abba_ks, most people from Atlanta hate it when people call it Hotlanta. But even she had to agree.  It was really really hot. We dropped Matt off at the airport first thing. He had to fly back to LA to be the Best Man in a wedding. (Please come back soon, we are really slow at setting up the equipment on our own. Also, a refrigerated truck was idling near us during the whole interview so the sound might be kind of meh, but the good news is that he was towed right as we were leaving. That doesn’t help with the sound, but it made me feel better.) Hassan was still flying...

There’s a new “tribe” of talented and exciting cinematographers that we’ve had the pleasure of experiencing via YouTube and other social networks.  We are not only entertained by these visual storytellers, but also inspired as marketers.  And while we may not always have a perfect fit or immediate need for these artists’ work, their work does leave a mark on ours in one way or another.  Connecting with your audiences visually is a powerful tool and the following three filmmakers have got this skill DOWN.  We’d like to introduce a collection of FRESH filmmakers! Arthur Ircink...

DAY 2

I’m told this is Day Two. It feels a lot like day one; very little sleep, and I got beat up a bit. I blame the lack of sleep on Vegas, and also @mcgregormt, who asked me to livetweet the Prime Minister’s Questions at 4 am this morning on C-SPAN2. As far as I could tell (mind you I was sleep-deprived), this weekly event consists of the Prime Minister getting sassy, while the people across the aisle yell at him about everything that’s wrong with the UK. I learned a lot in 30 minutes. I will now share this knowledge with you: Things I Learned by Livetweeting the Prime...

#FF the Team

Whether or not we’re ready (and we aren’t), the road trip begins tomorrow. @Audi and team delivered Maeby (the official Follow Friday the Film name for our generously loaned A3 TDI) this morning, and since then we’ve been busy gossiping about everyone on Twitter. Er, I mean, packing. Before we take off, we wanted to introduce the whole team. Follow Friday the Film has come together incredibly quickly thanks in large part to the awesome group working on it all hours of the day. Road-trippers: Erin Faulk, Director, @erinscafe: the over-caffeinated brains behind the operation. Erin is...

Fueled by Fresh

By now, most of you have heard the exciting news that Audi has given us a car. What you probably don’t know is that by sponsoring Follow Friday the Film, they’re in good company (Yes, that was a pun about companies. I’m sorry, I’m not sleeping much lately.) During our 30-day Kickstarter fundraising, we were fortunate enough to be backed by some incredible fresh food companies – and we couldn’t be more excited! Just like many of you, they donated through the Kickstarter site when our film was just an idea. Now, they’re going above and beyond, and...
