Shula’s Steak House of Naples Uses the VideageTM

Shula’s Steak House of Naples decided to use the VideageTM to promote their monthly tasting events.

We’ve been working with Maurica Hurley, Business Development Manager of Shula’s Steak House of Naples, throughout 2011. We had already completed one VideageTM of their Champagne and Chocolate event, this time Maurica wanted a short 60 second VideageTM that would capture the fun and sophistication of Shula’s and encourage people to explore their regular monthly tastings, held the last Wednesday of every month. We shot both the stills and the video and worked closely with Maurica to get just the right feel. After two edits Maurica said “it just needs something to end the piece… something that says what we’re all about” We reviewed some of the video and agreed, a shot of a steak on the grill would be the perfect ending. She was right! It’s always so rewarding working with people who are on the same creative page… thanks Maurica!
