Bass Junkeez host Hawks

2009 0729 Bass Junkeez Host the Hawks
Boise Hawks ball players have little spare time. When they manage to get away for some R&R, the Bass Junkies were on hand to show them some Bass Junkeez hospitality. VIP was on location to film the casual and fun event. Please click the album thumbnail above to see some 'behind the scenes' pics.

Music on the Waterfront

The 'Music on the Waterfront - Free Summer Concert Series' is developing into a very unique Treasure Valley Event. It is different from other venues in that 1.) It is literally on the shores of Silver Lake (behind Lake Harbor off State St. in Boise). 2.) There is plenty of FREE PARKING! and 3.) It has a little something for everyone and is truly 'Family Friendly'.

VIP is proud to associate with and be a sponser of this Boise Business Co-Op event.

Event promotion is a VIP specialty and we especially like being apart of on going events where effort and images from the last event help support the next.

Please feel free to call or e-mail if you would like some VIP Treatment for your next event.

Affinity Image and Model - Fat Tuesday Lingerie Fashion Show

 Sometimes we get the opportunity to re-edit and use footage from previous shoots and in this case we did. The client, Affinity Image, had hired VIP to shoot and live stream their Mardi Gras / Fat Tuesday Lingerie Modeling show at the Rose Room in downtown Boise. We had two days to shoot and edit and the only public advertisement was the :30 trailer that we created and posted online. To demonstrate the value of rediting, VIP has created an extended version of the teaser / trailer from camera 2 (the behind the scenes shots).

Trailer for Bass Junkeez Media Presskit

 Viral Intermedia Production is currently producing a media presskit for the Bass Junkeez. Here is the trailer for the DVD portion of the package.

Music on The Waterfront by the Boise Business Co-op

 Viral Intermedia Production is a small local film and media production company. Let me qualify that by saying we are 'small' only in our physical size; our vision and desire is as large as any LA or east coast production house. We look forward to the big money productions and we get to play "Hollywood' or "Indie" when we team up with Sidewayz Films  as we did with Boise i48 Film Festival and the upcoming Sidewayz Summer Film Project. Our desired projects in priority order would probably be:

  1. Full Feature Film
  2. Documentary
  3. Made for TV Movie
  4. TV Series / Mini Documentary
  5. National Commercial Creation / Shoot
  6. Local / Regional Commercial Creation Shoot
  7. Web Clip
That being said, of the list above, the item that brings the quickest gratification is #7 - the web clip. The reason being is that they are inexpensive to make, highly effective and can be completed the fastest. They bring the person or group commissioning the web clip nearly instantaneous results in marketing, promotion or simply "sharing."
Case in point is the web clip included with this post commissioned by the Boise Business Co-op. The BBCo is a new venture in the Treasure Valley that offers members the benefit of social networking supported by hosted events featuring local area merchants, talent and vendors. Perhaps not a new concept in and of itself but what is new is their intention of supporting and complimenting existing events and networks. The BBCo does its best to create its events on alternate days and at different venues than those already in place. 
Its current Free Summer Concert Series "Music on the Waterfront" takes into consideration 'Alive after Five' and its Wednesday night venue at the Grove. MOTW is on Thursdays at Lake Harbor. Instead of beer gardens and rock'n the Grove, it's more about relaxing, sitting on the manicured lawns and listening to jazz, soft rock, or reggae while the young'ns fish. It's more about perusing the local vendors and concession stands where one has the time and atmosphere to visit for a few moments and the ambiance to carry on a conversation.
Viral Intermedia is a proud member of the Boise Business Co-op and is honored to support the other members in what ever ways serve. We are also happy to be a part of a new and growing tradition of "Music on the Waterfront" at Lake Harbor Thursday's Free Summer Concert Series. You will find our staff and crew there every Thursday along with our spouses and kids working and recreating at the same time.
Summer time...and the living is easy!

Reel Xtreme

Day 2 of shooting with Kevin and Nick, aka: The Bass Junkeez was wrapped today up at Arrow Rock Reservoir aproximatley 20 miles north of Boise. 2 Passionate fishermen, two cameras and two 85MPH bass boats on the lake at sunset made for some compelling footage.

Pre-Production for today’s shoot was accomplished at Ben’s Crow Inn on HWY 21. It was decided to shoot everything today for color, including the drive up past Spring Shores, launching the boats, and gearing up.

Step one was for Eugene Boyle (Producer / Viral Intermedia Production) to learn how to operate the chase boat. After a quick lesson, a location was scouted for speed shots. Lucky for the VIP crew the water was fairly calm as the Bass Junkeez team raced towards the camera at speeds over 60MPH turning out at the last minute just a few yards out from the chase boat.

Next item: catch a fish. Up till now we had only heard how good the guys were at bass fishing; it was all fish tales until the line hit the water. Nick positioned the lead boat and proceeded to hook a small mouth within minutes of getting his line wet. Kevin was able to get in a few barbs about Nick’s tiny 3 pounder when he had one on the way up seconds later. To the layman film crew it was like magic.

Day one of shooting occurred last Thursday during a community event on The Waterfront at Lake Harbor n Boise. The dynamic duo spent time sharing their stories and expertise with area youngsters and later submitted to their first on camera interview with VIP.

The two are naturals in front of the camera. Their dedication and passion for the sport came though pure and crystal clear. Kevin and Nick were able to do the interview in one take as their stories, humor, and experiences came out easily and naturally due to their devotion to a sport that represents the best of living to both of the young men.

The Bass Junkeez are extreme bass fisherman, to be sure; but first they are down-to-earth, wholesome, hard-working, fun loving guys. The documentary should nearly make itself.
