National Television Ad Campaign with Valero gasoline

Our family headed out to work with a Hollywood production crew in our 1972 Chevy Balboa Motorhome to film for two days in Joshua Tree for the client, Valero.  The boys did so well shooting for 14 hour days and driving with a film crew in the van.  We even mounted a $80,000 camera to the hood of the van.  Our boys have the proper papers to do film and commercial work, but are not represented by an agency.  We are all comfortable in front of the camera, except my wife, she prefers to be behind the camera.

"VAN TOURS" feature 

I was asked to do a profile to help launch the Adventure Sports Network by Grind Media.  We shot this at my house, and at my local beach in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA.
