I just recently escaped the cool Chicago air and had a short trip to sunny Florida thanks to my awesome big brother!!!:) On our way back from visiting with turtles, winds picked up and a “sand storm” cleared out the beach-it was a pretty incredible visual, I of course have to share!
Unfortunately, sand storms don’t sound particularly fantastic on an iPhone mic. Here enters a song I love so much, it’s in my head constantly! And as most of my friends know, I kind of love the “repeat” button! How to Dress Well is AMAZING! Buy the music here or on iTunes so you too can listen to it on repeat!!!!:)
Music: How to Dress Well, Ocean Floor for Everything

When Laura Roeper shared with me her concept to film the contrasting work and home lives of Ben Wahhh (Deluxe Tattoo), I couldn’t wait to work on it with her! Check out her blog, Permanent Canvas, to read their interview and of course take a peek at this super talented artist in our video below (HD option in the top right corner once it starts playing!)! Special thanks to Laura, Ben, and also to Jason Kraynek for editing!
Can you guess who’s closet this might be?:)

Raybestos is back! Last year we talked shop with Troy Ladd while he was building the ’32 Roadster Pickup for Raybestos at Hollywood Hot Rods out in Burbank, CA. This year we were lucky to work again with the same team of 426 Inc. and Schilling Film, but this time in our very own backyard! We visited the fellas at Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle here in Chicagoland to talk about the ’64 GTO they’re building for this year’s contest which officially starts on June 15. Click on the image below for a little preview!:
Pictured here are partners Chad Hill and master builder Kevin Tully:
And just for fun, a little behind the scenes clip where two of our crew members snuck up on me during the still shoot setup! Thank you Angela Mata! I love my job!!!:

Our Time Out shoot with the House Theater, inspired us to take our set just a few steps further! Thanks to Mr. Chance Bone for coming back to the studio, throwing on some snazzy duds (thanks to the lovely Liz Klafeta) and spreading some holiday cheer! To see more of Mr. Bone’s talents, check out his music on myspace, or see him live in person at Schubas on 1/16/11 as part of the group Lionlimb.:)
We couldn’t resist throwing together just a few more images so you too could have the pleasure of a dance with Chance (click on the HD option in the top right corner for better quality!)! I only hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Happy Holidays!!!! XO Lisa

Does it really get any better than standing next to Tommy the Turtle with your name on a smart slate?! We recently had an awesome two days of shooting HD DSLR video for Turtle Wax thanks to 426 Inc! With super cool clients and crew, the shoot was a huge success and the footage looks great (coming soon!)! An extra special thank you to ProGear for all of their help getting us ready for this one-I’m proud of holding the current record for the most time it’s taken them to get an order together as well as them naming my special configuration of the Zacuto rig the “Lisa Rig”. Please support them, they rock! Additional thanks go to Mandy and crew over at Zacuto, Ken at Dodd Camera, Ed Meyers from Canon, and Ryan Rude-I think I owe you all some of my famous chocolate chip cookies for answering all of my questions!;) Behind the scenes photos taken by Sarah Crump, Lauren Butterfield, and Robbie Vasquez.
