Take a look at this book trailer I did. I think this commercial turned out really well and had a lot of good detail.

I'm really liking http://audiojungle.net/ right now.

What production music does everybody use these days? Myself, I like the SonicFire Pro libraries.

This 2k movie theater commercial was created by Lone Peak Productions and PPBH. It is showing in all of the Megaplex theaters after the movie trailers and before the movie starts. This spot was created in Apple's Motion and showcases the joy of owning a home built by Henry Walker Homes.

EXTREME Philosophy

Integrity

Everything, and we mean everything, begins and ends with integrity. If you can't trust someone, then you cannot associate with them. At Extreme we don't promise to be perfect, but we do promise to be honest and be the team that has it figured out today.

Loyalty

We at Extreme are loyal to the project. We treat people as we wish to be treated. We learned from one of our best clients Walt Disney Imagineering that when a company openly says we will give you everything to set you up for success; it is due to your loyalty to them. If you are honest with them and ask for needs of neccessity not ego; loyalty through honesty is the best kind.

We have loyalty as 95% of our clients are return clients due to the loyalty built on our honesty and integrity of plan and attack, cost effectivness and honest answers of what can and can't be done within a time and funding budget handed us. No smoke and mirrors. Just loyal honest fact filled answers.

Teamwork & Respect

Whether it's working with fellow team members, clients, producers, resources or vendors, the philosophy's the same. The only way to get things done in a constructive, efficient, win-win manner is with teamwork and respect. That starts with being a careful listener. It also means sharing honest, sincere and constructive opinions on mission-critical issues and dealing with them on neccessity not ego. This means putting self-interests aside for the benefit of the project.

Extreme is different from most traditional motion picture stunt organizations. We have a strong culture that we're all very proud and protective of. Our goal is to create great work that is preemptive, completely truthful and convincing enough to change attitudes, preference and film making habits. We start by digging for the critical strategic insight to bring focus to our creative energies. The ultimate goal: Move the project forward with good attitudes and services.

Building Value

We believe a project should be managed as a company's most valuable asset. It should be central to the planning and utilization of financial and human resources, organizational structure and producing strategy. If this formula is reinforced and practiced in an organization, the odds are in favor that the project will maintain a stronger, healthier, more profitable position. Our Producers and Clients aren't just be satisfied...they are loyal for life.

Solutions Neutral Approach

If you talk with traditional stunt organizations, they think all business problems are solved by money. If you talk with our team members, every problem is a PR opportunity for us. So you know their advice is in your best interest; and in theirs. That's why Extreme has purposefully chosen to be different.

We're solution neutral. As a fully integrated film making and not just stunt company, we take a holistic view. Our objective with any project producer or client is to completely understand the film making challenges and opportunities and only then provide a recommendation that, in our judgment, will be the best, most cost-effective mix of communication, stunt, driving and film making services to accomplish the projects objective.

Whatever it Takes

You won't hear, "that's not my job", from any Extreme Member. We service what we sell...like nobody else. Service excellence with a smile and resourcefulness are designed, constructed and built into our culture. That's why we seem to thrive on time-pressured, never-been-done-before challenges. We're fully dedicated to finding creative solutions and being a hands-on extension of our producers, clients projects 24/7. We'll do whatever it takes to help our clients achieve a successful outcome…as long as it’s legal, moral and ethical.

We're constantly reinventing ourselves in order to best meet the needs of our producers, film makers and clients. All it takes is a quick conversation with one of our employers to find out how it's working out for them. We know you'll be impressed with our level of enthusiasm about what Extreme is always willing to do on your behalf day in and day out. So, today, we offer a variety of Directing, Stunt Coordinating, Camera Insert Vehicle and On Camera Driving services. You will see the list evolve—and that will occur because of the relationship we form with you.

One thing is sure: At EXTREME Stunt & Driving Team, Inc., we will have your best interests as our highest priority, and we will only offer you what we believe is the best possible solution.

Last But Not Least No One Can Promise Work This Is A Free Lance Business
Please Read Below!

Understanding you want to enter into the motion picture business you must realize driving is only one of the many talents you going to need to gain employment. Having these talents isn't the only thing that will get you the work.

We can train you to be the best Motion Picture Stunt and/or High Performance driver you can be with seat time, training, direction and focus. However you will only work when there are driving sequences in a film or television project. Also realize we train we don't offer nor guarantee employment. What you do with your training is up to you 1000 percent.

The more you know and the more talents you accumulate, the more you will work. Let's put it this way. A good cowboy won't make a good rancher. Follow me on this point.
A good rancher is an architect, plumber, veterinarian, cowboy, carpenter, farmer, cook. I think you get where I'm going with this.

After you have the training it then who you know and who knows you. This takes what most stunt people know as the five year plan. Who will know you depends on your talent and safety record you build as you go. It also depends on your set etiquette. This is something even some of the biggest names are still learning.

You have to know film and camera. Also how to take direction, and how to take criticisms then constructively. This is hard as there are many different ways to do some stunts. None are wrong just some work better for one and not another. Or you could be working with someone who only knows one way and he or she thinks it's the best.

This can be one of the best, exciting, challenging and awarding businesses in the world. Just know that it is also saturated with hundreds if not thousands of people trying to make a living.

You have to become a salesman of your self. You can't take this training and sit by the phone and expect magically that everyone will know who you are and That you can slide a car or do a reverse 180 to a mark every time.

For every 125 percent you put into the business you will get 10 to 15 percent back after the first five years unless your one of the lucky ones. Your only as good as your last job.

Also know you are getting into a dog eat dog, political business filled with sharks. You'll be the ham bone in a room full of pit bulls. Because there are 5000ish USA Stunt performers and at any given time jobs for 2000 at best..

Now if you understand this and feel you will not take no for an answer then you are also one of the few who has the inner strength and determination to use all that you will train to learn and could possibly even cut down the five year plan to three and a half.

We don't want to sound arrogant or egotistical. We want you to know what your in for in your journey to become a working stunt performer. We don't want you spending your money only to lead to heartache or worse self destruction of your confidence and/or character. This business has broken many a strong person.

Stunt Coordinators don't just look for the talent. We also look for the consistent, confident (not cocky) and focused stunt performers.

We hope this helps you make the correct decision for you. If you think we have not caused you to change your mind; please feel free to sign up for our next session and we truly will teach you everything we know to help you long and prosperous Stunt and/or driving career.

We Do Not Want You To Get False Hopes We Supply work.
However We Have Asked Students/Participates To Join Extreme
From Time To Time On A Probationary Program
Comment by Grady Bishop on February 10, 2009 at 2:46pm
ABC moved production of Ugly Betty from California to NY because of the financial incentives? Well, not only is California in a fiscal funk but so is NY. Crains reports today that New York State's tax credit for filming in the Big Apple has become "a victim of its own success; the state is out of money and a lack of pilots is threatening jobs". Sure that state tax credit brought television production in New York City to a record high last year.

But that was then and this is now. "Already television production studios are holding back on plans to shoot pilots in New York this spring," the report says. "If funding for the tax credit program is not renewed, feature film and television series production could also dry up once current projects are completed."

NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker warned a Crains forum this week that "television companies that made 19 pilots for programs last year in New York City thus far have committed to making zero."

/Today - A petition is being circulated
To: Governor David A. Paterson
cc: Speaker of the Assembly/Assemblyman Sheldon Silver, Senate Majority Leader Malcolm A. Smith

We are writing to you today, on behalf of the thousands of men and women employed in the film and television industry in New York State. A recent article in the New York Post, titled "Cut! And Run Looms: NY Out of Film Lures", reported that the successful state program that provides tax credits to lure television and film productions to New York has run out of money.

The report goes on to say that "A Paterson spokesman said yesterday that there is no additional funding for the tax credits included in his latest budget proposal."This is alarming. With an unemployment rate of over 7%, now is not the time to cut programs that create jobs and foster new businesses in our state. This program is proven to be highly successful and at a time when this industry needs all the help it can get, you must rethink the true impact
of not funding this valuable program.

According to a 2007 study by Ernst and Young, the state and city combined have issued $690 million in tax credits and have collected $2.7 billion in taxes from movie and television productions. This program pays for itself! It helped create over 7,000 jobs, directly, in 2007 and over 12,000 jobs indirectly.

As you are aware, New York City has seen a surge in new television, motion picture and commercial filming in recent years. The Mayor's Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting reports that in 2002, there were 14,858 NYC location shooting days and in 2008, we reached over 27,250 days. There is a direct correlation between the growth of this industry and the tax credits provided from the state - we need to keep the momentum going, especially during tough economic times.

New York City and New York State have become "Hollywood of the East". We are finally a player in the international film industry. Please, Governor Paterson, fund the New York State Tax Credit program for television and motion pictures. Real jobs depend on it!

Sincerely,
The Undersigned
With the numbers being the way they are - does the Florida Governor need more proof?!
