It’s been nearly 18 months since we opened our doors and in that time, our process, our plans, and our team have all evolved. We’ve had the opportunity to work with many new clients (Tree House Edit, Dallas Market Center, MarriageToday), and we’ve gotten a chance to work on our own projects (Seven Poets & the Assassin’s Secret, Secretive Second Film).
We’re excited about what lies ahead, and we’re especially excited about the new additions to the BFM Creative team who we feel will take us to a new level of production:
Allison Graham, Producer
Allison is a very accomplished producer (which is why her bio is egregiously long) who began her career at ad agency, DDB Needham, where she managed the 150 million dollar GTE account for the FOCUS division of DDB. After more than a year of agency work, Allison set her sights on bigger and better opportunities transitioning as a key coffee getter for the cast and crew working on Dallas – JR Returns.
Having had a taste of the exciting and magical world of movies, Allison packed up her model T and moved to tinsel town where she worked for Artisan Entertainment, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema, 20th Century Fox, Miramax and Dreamworks SKG. Working her way up from coffee to light snacks and beverages, Allison quickly rose to the ranks of Assistant Director, Production Manager and Producer working with such titans as Jerry Bruckheimer, Michael Bay, Timur Bekmamvetov and Tim Burton to name drop a few.
She was one of the Key Business Strategists behind The Blair Witch Project marketing campaign, leading the team responsible for revolutionizing the way the Internet and film marketing were viewed.
Allison brings a grassroots upbringing with the sophistication of intelligent marketing and strong production background to successfully design, implement and complete all types of media projects, and her response to any type of challenge can be summed up in a single, simple phrase: “Bring IT.”
Josh Pickering, Director of Photography
A graduate of Baylor University, Josh bleeds green and gold. He loves to share his art with others, and he claims the film industry isn’t work, but fun with paychecks tacked on (this view does not necessarily represent the views of BFM Creative, Inc., it’s other employees, or it’s subsidary, Boy From Mars Films). Josh continues to work on features and national commercials. No job is too big or too small as he enjoys the different challenges and opportunities presented by indie filmmaking and big budget work.
Dustin Bailey, Motion Graphics & Visual F/X
Dustin is a graduate of UNT and a very skilled motion graphics and visual f/x artist. Like Josh, we’ve worked with Dustin for several years, but we’re very pleased to be making it official by bringing his talent under the BFM banner.
Dustin is highly sought after, having worked on motion graphics, F/X, and titles for projects like: CBS’s Seve Ballesteros documentary that ran before the 2012 Masters, the recent, much praised, video featuring legendary street artist Shepard Fairey, and the brand new Henry Rollins Capitalism Tour among many, many others.
We have a really, really good team that can handle everything from treatment through post production, and we can handle any size project. From the $10,000 to $50,000 industrial/trade show/web spot you just need to get done professionally without straining your in-house team or worrying about farming it out to LA. To the six figure and up narrative spots that need professional storytelling and craft and not just good looking footage.
Have a project? We’d love to talk.
