Saying that our crew has been out and about lately is definitely an understatement. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been shooting all over Hampton Roads, but more impressively we’ve been shooting across multiple state lines. This time, Jpixx was working with DuPont and American Electric Power throughout OH, KY, LA, and TX, to create branding and safety videos. Four destinations in seven days, READY SET GO!
On Sunday evening, Jon, Glenn, Karla, and Chandler set out for the first leg of their quad-state adventure. They boarded in Norfolk, VA and were soon en route to Columbus, OH. When they arrived in O-HI-O, they were greeted by scorching hot weather and lots of friendly faces. After settling in, they headed out to their first on-shoot location at AEP.
My favorite part of our time in Ohio was hanging out in Downtown Columbus since there were lots of hip breweries, good restaurants, and the best street limbo opportunities. -Karla
After a few days of shooting, they took a scenic three hour drive to the small city of Ashland, KY. They experienced Fat Patty’s, a local burger joint, where a random table took care of their bill, score!
Kentucky had great vibes all around. It was a really cool place and people were really nice. Not only the people we worked with and interviewed, but even the people we ran into around Ashland. -Chandler
Everything was smooth sailing until they hit some rocky weather while in Ashland, KY and were forced to fly home before heading off to Shreveport, LA. The crew ended up snagging a flight back to Norfolk, VA so they could hold out the hot and rainy Tropical Storm Cindy whether back in good ole’ Virginia Beach.
A couple of days later, the crew switched off since Chandler had a West Coast vacation to get to. Will tagged in and before they knew it they were AEP bound again.
The crew found out that the heat they were feeling in OH was nothing compared to how hot it was in LA. In between non-stop filming at several locations, they hit up some good ole’ cajun cooking with crawfish being the star of the show, of course!
We definitely got a glimpse of a real Southern atmosphere in Louisiana. We absorbed their culture through a taste of their cooking, meeting very welcoming people, and visiting local spots. -Glenn
After wrapping at AEP, the crew quickly drove through Texas on the way to the airport. They stumbled upon the highlight of their trip, a Daiquiri Express Selfie Station, oh yeah! They grabbed some daiquiri’s to go and made it to the airport. Four states. Seven days. That’s how we do it at Jpixx, thanks AEP!
