This past September Yelp celebrated their 11th anniversary with a big bash at the Fillmore in Detroit. VC was there to capture the whole event and to film live reviews from the Yelpers in attendance.
It’s rare when a shoot goes absolutely perfect, when everything falls into place better than you imagined it. Filming out at the Village of Rochester Hills last month, I had one of those days. Beautiful weather, great client, top shelf talent, superb crew and one of my favorite projects that I’ve worked on. – John

You may remember earlier this summer we put a call out to local musicians to submit a song that could be used in a PSA for the Michigan Humane Society. A lot of great songs were submitted, but in the end we all agreed that Brae’s Will The Calvary Come was a perfect fit for emotion that we were trying to convey in the spot. What do you think?
For more about Brae and the song check out this story from WDIV.
Do you recycle?
Do you know Detroit Recycles?
Over the summer VC had the pleasure of putting together a PSA and educational video to help promote the expansion of curbside recycling pickup in Detroit. It was a lot of fun and we thank everyone that worked on and participated in the project.
The DIA’s Reveal Your Detroit Exhibit opens tomorrow at the Detroit Public Library and runs through August 15th. The exhibit is a collection of pictures taken by people in the community that reveal what Detroit is to them. Velocity Cow is so happy to have been involved in the project, creating the video component that you’ll see at the exhibit. We got to talk to so many people and hear some great stories about what Detroit is to them. Make sure you stop into the library to check it out. Thanks to all who participated in doing interviews with us and to all the photographers involved. Let us know if you go and what you thought.
Calling all local singers and musicians. Did you write a song that’s emotional, compelling, heartwarming or beautiful? We’re looking for an original song by a local Michigan artist to be used in a PSA for the Michigan Humane Society. If you or someone you know has something that fits this project (and are a dog and or cat lover) please reply to this post or email toni at velocitycow dot com. Please include a sample of the song or a link to it. This is a voluntary, unpaid opportunity and you will receive and on screen credit in the PSA. Any lyrics and music must be original. If your piece is selected we will contact you with further information. Thank you.
Do you recycle? Whether you participate in curbside pick-up or take your recyclables to a local drop-off location we need you to help us educate others about recycling in Detroit. We’re looking for people in the community that are passionate about recycling to be featured in a public service video for Detroit Recycles. We need a diverse mix of people of any age, ethnicity, and background who live in the city of Detroit, recycle, and are comfortable being on camera. Those with artistic or performance talents are especially desired.
If you think you have what it takes, please email Toni Cozad (toni at velocitycow dot com) with your contact information, a picture of yourself (or a link to photo online), and tell us why you think you’re the right person to represent Detroit Recycles. Those chosen will be contacted and given further information regarding the video shoot. Participation in this project is voluntary and unpaid.
All Star Dawgs 10:30am 3.16.2012
I’d be a hypocrite if I said I’d never had hotdogs for breakfast but it’s not necessarily something I, traditionally, encourage. After wrapping on an early morning shoot out Rob Parker’s All Star Dawgs in Detroit, Rob insisted we try the ‘merchandise,’ so to speak. I’m pretty loyal to Koegels but Rob’s got something special here. Sabretts are pretty much everywhere in New York but, up until our shoot, I hadn’t come across one around here. I’ll spare you a long-winded review. They’re good. They’re super cheap. And you could do a lot worse for breakfast. Trust me on that.
