On a weekend in November, the team at C4 Media pulled off a shoot that almost wasn’t. It began when C4 decided to enter the “Doritos Crash the Super Bowl” contest and create an original Doritos ad, of their own. After a C4 brainstorming session for ideas, Maura Corey put her sketch comedy writing skills to task and quickly came up with a script about three office gossips and a secret romance. A cast consisting of Dustin Rubin, Kandis Erikson, Jason Bowers, Jenny Rainwater and Brandon Reece quickly came together. And with a cast in hand, equipment got rented and a shoot day (a Saturday) got scheduled. All that was left to get was a location. And that’s where things got dicey. Marc, Maura and John scrambled for a location to shoot but kept coming up short. The Wednesday before the Saturday shoot day came and with cancellation looming, the C4 Media team didn’t think we could pull it off. But thankfully Marc secured a location and it was ON!
A crew of five and a cast of five showed up to a beautiful office space in Santa Monica. With Marc Cahill as DP, Maura Corey as director and John Antonio as sound and the invaluable assistance of Tracy Santomarco and Hans Hernke, the small cast and crew pulled off a 7‐hour day that almost wasn’t. C4 Media wants to give a shout out to everyone that helped make a fun day possible where nothing broke, laughs were to be had and only a couple of phones were misplaced.
