Shot in Beijing, China Andrews’ futuristic vision, high key light and the use of unique and clever camera moves made this action spot even more special. The concept featuring NBA Miami Heat Champion Dwyane Wade and his sacred #3, was to capture the drama and action of 3 seconds maintained consistently throughout a gripping 30-seconds. "We had to dominate the second," says TPSC Director Andrews Jenkins. “From Wade's moves on the court to the frozen 3 seconds of fan insanity. And as the director, it's that mysterious notion I wanted to visually capture in a way we haven't seen before.”

A four-minute film created as a remembrance for the City of Prescott, AZ and the firefighters lost in the Yarnell Hill fire, June 2013. This heroic film preserves the memorial built, a fence that borders a one-acre lot where the 19 Hot Shot firemen trained. The entire length of the fence was covered with the gifts, words, etc., from people from all over the country. Owning a business in Prescott, AZ www.legend-avaition.com, Chris had become a part of the community, “one of the fire fighters killed was Sean Misner an employee of mine at Legend. I've started a memorial fund for Sean's widow Amanda who was 6-months pregnant with their first child,” says Director/Partner Chris Woods. The film was done gratis, along with help from a local doctor, Ted Wickstrom, M.D. “As in everything I sink my teeth into, I want this piece to be extraordinary as my thanks and appreciation to the 19 firemen that perished.” Woods ends.
