Loving Legacy Video – ‘Stories That Matter From The People You Love’

Posted by Leonard on November, 29, 2016

I’m excited to announce the launch of Loving Legacy Video, a new endeavor under the Pangeality Productions umbrella. Loving Legacy Video grows out of my experience interviewing subjects over the past 17 years, engaging in meaningful dialogue about their lives, businesses and ideas on camera. The basic premise is that we guide and film autobiographical interviews in the comfort of your home. It’s roughly 75% chronological questions that begin with your awareness about ancestors and from who and where you come, up through early childhood, education, marriage and parenting, career, and retirement. Then roughly 25% introspective questions about when you felt most alive, your approach to parenting and/or grandparenting, life choices you wished you’d made differently, aging and dying. It builds on my experiences over the years with Pangeality Productions and Youtube.com/LenDavis, interviewing all kinds of people about their lives. Except in this case, it’s more about how they want their family and descendants to remember them instead of telling their story to sell goods and services. To learn more, see video samples, pricing and workflow, visit Loving Legacy Video.

Punt Pass and Kick is an annual event geared toward celebrating the NWG community where they invite members of their community to enjoy a private function at the University of Washington football stadium. With current and former players and coaches on hand to schmooze and teach, families come catch passes from former Husky quarterbacks, tackle practice dummies, kick field goals and run around, then eat pizza and drink beer. And Pangeality Productions was there to capture the event for Northwest Group Real Estate to share with their community.

Seattle’s Top Ten Hotels – New Video

Posted by Leonard on October, 12, 2016

Pangeality Productions was recently hired by local bloggers Seattle Anne and My Little Nomads to produce a video showcasing Seattle’s Top 10 hotels. I had the opportunity to enjoy a shoot largely on foot after taking the bus downtown from my office which was awesome. Seattle Anne is a great resource celebrating Seattle Tourism and My Little Nomads is a great resource celebrating the joy of traveling with children. They put together the list and asked me to go out and capture Seattle’s top tourism destinations and shots from each hotel. Original musicians by my friend’s in The Jefferson Rose Band.

New Seattle Restaurant Videos Showcasing Star Chefs Award Winning Chef and Bartender

Posted by Leonard on January, 26, 2016

NYC based Star Chefs hired Pangeality Productions to film 2 videos at Spur Gastro Pub in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood. Star Chefs was holding the Seattle edition of their Rising Star Awards, a giant gala event at McCaw Hall, and Spur chef Jeff Vance and bartender Seth Sempere were 2 of their awardees. The awards celebrate up-and-coming chefs and culinary professionals, who represent the vanguard of the contemporary American dining scene. ‘They have strong, compelling culinary philosophies and are committed to fostering a culinary community by sharing their knowledge with fellow professionals’. On the day before the big event, we filmed Vance preparing a rabbit liver paté dish, and Sempere creating a ‘Searider Falcon’ cocktail with ground satsuma peel and kefir leaf. This particular series was sponsored by Vitamix and both recipes involved extensive use of the machine, which i learned had a long history in American cooking, that included being the subject of the very first ever infomercial, as the first ever product filmed for TV. It’s also considered the industry standard best blender on the market.

Safer Alternatives for Auto Repair Industry Video Training

Posted by Leonard on January, 24, 2016

Over the years Pangeality Productions has worked with The NW Pollution Prevention Resource Center on a variety of projects. Recently we wrapped work in support of their Safer Alternatives for the Automotive Industry online video training curriculum. The training curriculum focuses on helping automotive owners and technicians learn about safer alternatives, best management practices in a repair shop, and how to green your operations.

Incentive for the training comes from the fact that commonly-used cleaners in an automotive shop can be dangerous to your health and to the environment. In addition, many operations within an automotive shop (floor cleanup, antifreeze replacement, etc.) can lead to the mismanagement and misapplication of products and, therefore, may cause serious compliance issues for businesses. Therefore it’s important for owners and technicians in an automotive repair shop to be informed of the chemicals contained in the products they use as well as requiring good working habits to reduce liability and improve the business’s bottom line.

With that in mind and in partnership with the WA Dept of Ecology, The City of Seattle, Seattle City Light, and Swedish Automotive, PPRC produced a multimedia training curriculum offered free online to help any automotive related business to green their opeation. Check out the training on the PPRC website here http://pprc.org/index.php/2015/pprc/auto/

Seattle Green Building Slam Videos for Northwest Ecobuilding Guild

Posted by Leonard on January, 23, 2016

For the past 6 years Pangeality Productions has filmed and produced the Northwest Ecobuilding Guild’s annual Green Building Slam. The slam is 10 juried presenters giving 10 minute talks about their project featuring 10 slides each. The event is held at the University of Washington’s Kane Hall and growing each year in size is, now fills the room to almost capacity with close to 500 people in the crowd. Each year it’s an impressive variety of projects that span the green building spectrum of commercial and residential construction, from passive solar homes to cargo container accessory dwelling units (ADU). Regional green builders, architects, designers, planners, policy makers and people generally curious about green building gather to enjoy some tasty food and drinks, networking and great presentations. After recording the event, Pangeality Productions edits each video, integrating the slides in, adding logos and titles and making them available to both the presenter and the Northwest Ecobuilding Guild. Over time, the presentations have become a treasure trove of information highlighting and celebrating the evolution of the region’s green building leadership worldwide.

These were 4 of my favorite presentations from the event

Livable Greenlake Uses Video to Rally Commmunity Against Planned Development with Limited Parking Spots

Posted by Leonard on January, 15, 2016

Livable Greenlake is a community organization representing East Greenlake. Recently they’ve rallied to oppose a proposed 45 unit apartment complex that will provide only 13 subcompact parking spaces. Pangeality Productions was hired to record a public meeting convened with representatives of the City of Seattle Department of Planning and Development. Event planners invited people to ‘learn about the developer-paid traffic and parking study that Seattle DPD is supposed to review, listen to nearby business owners talk about the impact on their businesses and futures, and hear the stories of local residents who already struggle to find parking on their own street.’ It’s my understanding that the city was willing to allow this proposed project based on the proximity to East Greenlake being a transit hub, access to multiple buses and future Roosevelt light rail station therefor allowing new units to be built without designated parking as a way of increasing density. It’s a real Catch 22 as to whether or not allowing this type of development has the intended consequence of reducing reliance on automobiles or whether or not new owners simply park on street, leading to further congestion in areas such as this.

Puerto Vallarta Hotel and Wedding Drone Video

Posted by Leonard on December, 24, 2015

I recently returned from Puerto Vallarta where I was working on a series of tourism and travel promotion videos for a beachfront hotel there in connection with a Sammamish, WA based travel company that works primarily in Mexico. They were interested in promoting their property, and specifically their wedding services and hired Pangeality Productions to shoot some aerial footage of their grounds, building, beach area, wedding ceremony and reception. It was a blast coordinating with the wedding party who was pleasantly surprised that they’d be getting the complimentary service. Pangeality Productions has worked extensively in the tourism and travel industry around the world. Visit our page here for more info http://www.pangealityproductions.com/services/travel/

You can see some of the clips featured here in our Drone Video demo reel.

Seattle Artist Documentary Shoot at Metal Studio in Ballard

Posted by Leonard on December, 15, 2015

I’ve been working on a short documentary promotional piece with Seattle based visual artist Jonathan Clarren. He approached me with an interest in showcasing his work, specifically his sculpture pieces. The idea was a documentary short for architects, designers and developers in the planning stages of designing buildings and both interior and exterior spaces to have an opportunity to learn about his work, his process, and the materials he creates with. His goal is to connect with the right people, to get commissioned to build large scale art installations.

At first, we did a series of shoots at his home studio, where he works with wood, glass, paints on large canvases and smaller metal projects. We also shot at a metal studio at the soon to be demolished Fenpro Building in Ballard where he’s piecing together a huge metal sphere that will hang on the side of a building. The building is part of a construction trend in Ballard, and will be replaced by a $50 million+ Nordic Heritage Museum. It was amazing being in a hive of studios that will soon cease to exist, erasing a piece of Ballard art history and an enclave of industrial creativity. Jon has been working with Denny in this metal studio over the years to produce a variety of large scale metal sculptures he’s created.

The studio was an incredibly visually rich environment, with metal pieces strewn about, sparks flying, gritty tools everywhere, and the freedom to climb around and get unique angles as they worked their craft. Denny was rocking the metal lathe, and Jon was standing on top of a table, assembling the half sphere comprised of strips of elaborately carved metal in his signature keyhole pattern (see video below).


This is a short video I made of Jon doddling in this signature style. Eventually these patterns get translated into materials that get sculpted into original pieces.

The Lookout – Solace in Mountain Solitude Exhibit Video

Posted by Leonard on November, 25, 2015

I recently had the opportunity to film a lecture given by a dear friend. Tori Karpenko’s exhibit ‘The Lookout – Solace in Mountain Solitude’ at the Traver Gallery in Seattle is a uniquely beautiful collection of paintings, spread around a to scale model of an actual forest fire lookout. Tori built the lookout in Twisp WA where he lives, and reconstructed inside the downtown Seattle art gallery. In the wake of his divorce and his young son moving 4 hours away, he sought solace from the emotional crisis in the North Cascades mountains. In his words, “The vast silence of raw wilderness gave me a place to bring calm to a troubled mind. Empowering solitude led me to the stories of three poets; Gary Snyder, Phillip Whalen, and Jack Kerouac, who spent summers in the 1950’s as fire lookouts experiencing their own profound personal transformations. The simple Lookout cabin, one of the Pacific Northwest’s most iconic hermitages, became a crystalized form that could encapsulate the sanctuary that I too found in the high peaks.” On this special night in mid December, Tori discussed his collection of paintings which were anchored in the gallery by the lookout itself, landscapes of the local mt wilderness, familiar to hikers of this region, heavy on reflective lakes and streams, the foliage and geology of our local mountains where I too love to spend time hiking and backpacking. This particular night had a focus on poetry, with Tori reading some of the beat poetry he was inspired by and special guest Saul Weisberg, the co-founder and executive director of the North Cascades Institute Link reading some of his own poetry and reflecting on his own journey in the North Cascades over time and the poetry and prose it inspired in him. It was a lovely night, a full house with a lively QnA that I was happy to have recorded on video, to help Tori tell his story and promote his work, and the lecture simply as a beautiful portrait of an artist.

Documentary Style Promo Videos with Keyboard Legend Peter levin in NYC

Posted by Leonard on November, 16, 2015

In November I made a trip to NYC to work on some new promo videos for my old friend Peter Levin. Pete is currently playing in the Greg Allman Band, after years touring the world with The Blind Boys of Alabama. Over the last 20+ years during my own journeys, we’ve connected in endless cities where I’ve been at the time and he’s passed through on tour with all kinds of bands. Pete’s a killer keyboard, piano and organ player who’s performed with if you can believe it Allen Toussaint, Crosby Stills & Nash, Aaron Neville, Levon Helm, The Doobie Brothers, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Lou Reed, Joan Osbourne, Yo La Tengo, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Charlie Musselwhite, Christian McBride, Merl Saunders, Phil Lesh, Mike Gordon, Vasser Clements, and the Oak Ridge Boys.

We spent 5 days at his studio in Brooklyn filming daytime sessions with an assortment of players, and then he played each night as part of a weeklong run at The Winery in Manhattan with the Greg Allman Band which I also got to enjoy as his guest. The new materials will showcase some of his solo work with a variety of artists, featuring him playing on an incredible collection of keyboards, synthesizers and his grand piano that he keeps in his studio. Was a great time connecting with an old friend and will be exciting to put the content together over the coming weeks.

This is a similar style of piece we did 7 years back

UW Dental Conference Career Planning Video

Posted by Leonard on November, 1, 2015

Pangeality Production was recently hired by a motivational speaker from out of state, coming to Seattle to present at a conference of dental students from around the country. Though his business is about preventing divorce by helping build healthy marriages and providing tools and exercises for repairing broken ones, his talk to students was about future planning. The majority of them were graduate students who would soon begin their professional lives, and he teaches that the 3 pillars upon which a successful career rests are Vison, Expectations, and Support. He’d found Pangeality Productions online and hired me to film his hourlong training and presentation, that he could then share within his own social media channels and website.

Global Innovation Exchange – New UW + Tsinghua University of Beijing Campus in Seattle Area filming

Posted by Leonard on July, 1, 2015

Last week I did some freelance camera work with CCTV covering the major announcement of the opening of the Global Innovation Exchange (CCTV is similar to a Chinese BBC).  One of the most prestigious universities in China is joining with the University of Washington to run a graduate institute in Bellevue that will focus on technology and innovation. The partnership with Tsinghua University of Beijing — sometimes called the MIT of China — will mark the first time that a Chinese research university has established a physical presence in the United States. The program will be based in the Spring District of Bellevue in the rezoned and redeveloping Bel-Red Corridor. The GIX as it will be known, will start with a few dozen students in fall 2016,  and could grow to 3,000 students in a decade.

“Both Tsinghua and UW faculty will teach, in English, and the students will earn a master’s degree over 15 months. They’ll be charged with tackling great problems of this era: sustainability, health, inequality, environmental issues, transportation and clean energy, to name just a few. Technology isn’t just about engineering and science anymore.” In remarks, a Microsoft person described the partnership as “a way to grow higher education in Seattle, which is “at a disadvantage” when compared with other U.S. cities that are tech-innovation centers, including Boston, New York, Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles. All of those cities have at least two major research universities; Boston has four. Seattle has one.”

We shot interviews with WA Governor Jay Inslee, the head of research for Microsoft, and the presidents of both Universities, that all played across a variety of CCTV programs.
