SOUTHDOWN CREATIVE “XBOX HOUSE PARTY” VIDEO
Since 2005, Seattle-based production company Southdown Creative has been in the business of conceptualizing and producing commercial-quality videos for its clients. Their services include viral web campaigns, comedic and narrative corporate videos, and TV series and commercial production. Southdown Creative’s client list includes Microsoft, Starbucks, Wizards of the Coast, Seattle Channel, Adult Swim, and many others.
This week, Southdown Creative is shooting at their SODO studio. The production involves 75 dancing extras as part of a “house party” scene for an Xbox commercial, which will debut at the 2012 CES Convention in Las Vegas. In addition to the local extras and featured dancers, Southdown Creative is hiring a large local crew (plus a large contingent local security guards!) to capture the fun.
From camera rentals to grips and electrics, Southdown Creative proudly pays hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to Seattle-based film and video professionals. “We do a few productions each year in NYC or LA,” says founder Fred Northup, “but by far the majority of our productions are based here in Seattle. I’m proud to support our amazing local crew. The talent here is top-notch, and the ease of shooting here can’t be beat.”
