Project: The Wicked Wich of Dayton | Mobile Gourmet With A Twist

We recently wrapped a short film on the The Wicked Wich of Dayton. They are a mobile food operation based out of Dayton, Ohio serving made-to-order fresh gourmet sandwiches and homemade side items. Their goal is to use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible while maintaining a reasonably priced, creative sandwich in a timely fashion.

The Wicked Wich of Dayton was recently awarded with 2015's Best Food Truck & Best Hidden Gem in the Dayton.com Best of Dayton Awards

We think bringing complementary talents and capabilities together has tremendous benefits for our clients.

Merging the two studios allows us to provide a broader range of services and experiences that will push client work to the next level.

Time for another installment of PERSONAL, where we share images from the crew. (click to enlarge images)

 

Greg is a lifelong fan of the Dutch artist M.C. Escher. Escher's impossible perspective drawings have always intrigued and fascinated him. When he came upon this stairwell in an ancient church in Southern Germany, he not only experienced a momentary feeling of vertigo, but was reminded of Escher’s “Ascending and Descending” illustration. So the question is “going up…or down?        

 

Dan captured this image while taking a stroll through the city square in Salzburg, Austria. Salzburg is filled with rustic tones and incredible architecture.

 

 

While heading back to the train station in Salzburg, Chris stumbled upon this Chevy Bel Air. In his attempt to show the contrast of Europe and the iconic 1950's US automobile, he spotted the very European street sign and composed accordingly.

 

Steve shot this image while on a bike ride as the sun began to set just outside of Bellbrook, Ohio. The contrast of the long shadows and the bright red paint of the barn made it an image worth stopping for.

 

This photo by John is of the Great Serpent Mound in Adams County, Ohio. This is the largest serpent effigy known, and is believed to have been built by the Adena culture, which dates back to around 300 BC.

Behind the Scenes: Synchrony Financial / LMG

Behind the scenes video of a recent still campaign we did with LMG for Synchrony Financial. 

The campaign is a take on a visual metaphor to represent the partnership Synchrony has with their customers, working hand-in-hand to meet their financing needs. Bringing new meaning to the word partnership. Bringing new meaning to the word partnership.

Greg shot this image of recently harvested hops buds ready to be added to the next batch of Spaten’s Oktoberfest bier In Münich, Germany. A thing of beauty ready to be transformed into a thing of even greater beauty!

 

Dan shot this image late afternoon at the train station in Feldkirkin, Germany. He says, "when I  travel I try to incorporate doors in my shots. This is something i’ve been doing for the last 10-12 years."

 

Steve captured this image in Cape Cod. He says, "the house at the bottom of the hill on Great Hollow Road, North Truro Massachusetts was my grandfathers. It was built in 1950 and ever since I can remember, we would spend a few weeks in the summer there on occasion. For my sister and I, it was our chance to visit with our only aunt, uncle and cousins and experience what seemed like a great adventure. We could find clay pipe stems, pottery shards and whale bones on the hill between the houses. That hill served as a trash dump for 18th century inhabitants. This sunset view makes it easy to see why my Uncle Milt and countless other artists choose to paint on Cape Cod."

 

John made this photograph of Master Glassblower James Michael Kahle while attending a class at his studio in north Dayton.

 

Chris captured this image while on location in München during Oktoberfest. No camera was harmed in the making of this photo. 

Happy Holidays from AGI Studios!

As we look back at the wonderful opportunities you have provided us professionally this past year, we look with anticipation to the opportunity to “pay it forward” to Homefull and their deserving clients.

Our studio will be closed from December 24th - January 5th to allow us to spend time with our families. If you need to reach us during that time, feel free to respond to this email as we will have access to it.

From all of us here at AGI Studios, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and happy and prosperous New Year!
