Yup, the Small Giant team finally has it's own instagram feed
Hey world - meet Pigeon!
We've been working with our good friend @tarikrdavis on this character for a while, and seeing him come to life in our studio for the first time...was AMAZING.
As we dive into development - new show ideas, new formats, new characters - our studio is once again...our secret sauce!
Pearls and I are at POD SAVE THE WORLD!!! We're waiting for the show to start, and I figured I'd fuck with my phone.
Hey look - we went Axe Throwing!!! You've never lived till you've thrown an Axe one handed.
ALWAYS a blast hanging with these gents - this time in Al Capone's old hood!! #axesolutelyamazing
TBT to my trip to the Met.
Sometimes taking the day off, and basking in the ancients, is all you need.
The MET is - without a doubt - one of the great wonders of NYC.
This is the concession area of the Big Apple Circus.
The show inside was, of course, amazing. But *how* we got there is even more incredible.
Rewind to Wed. Rach sells my old Bowflex weights on Offerup to this incredibly nice, measured, soft-spoken guy. We get to chatting. Turns out he works AT THE CIRCUS. He used to do the high-wire. We were pretty impressed. But the weights aren't exactly what he's looking for so I make him an offer - does he just want the weights, for free? We really want to declutter, and he seams like a nice guy. He clearly appreciates the offer, you can see it on his face.
Two hours later Rach gets a message - do we want to go to the Circus? We're like YEAH!
He leaves us tickets on Friday. They are, of course, ringside seats that knock our socks off.
We're blown away. We thank him profusely.
And we're reminded, yet again, of how AMAZING New York can be.
It's a big city that at it's best can feel like a small town - which is how we like it.
New York We Love You
Is this the Starship Enterprise? Or the Guggenheim?
Hint - the Af Klint exhibit is *amazing*. Pearly and I are just crushing museums this week!! #museumsarelikesocool
TBT to earlier this week when we celebrated Pearly's bday.
A staycation of Warhol @ the Whitney and Shoplifters @ the new Nitehawk in Park Slope.
No one deserved a better day off, not even Ferris.
Pearly, this one was for you.
Danke Schoen my love - it'll be 10 years this October and I've loved every minute of it.
Alwayw great to spend the Holidays with these guys.
Would you look at that?
My momma brought me a delicious birthday cake - one of New Yersey's finest!
My Mom only focuses on what interests her - and lucky for me that includes premium chocolate cake.
Mugsy wished my happy bday this morning.
He's the world's greatest travel companion.
Chritmas Eve upstate.
AKA my birthday.
The snow arrived like a dream, and made it all perfect.
Sometimes an act of Nature is all you need.
Happy Holidays all.
An hour later he's still there.
Mugs and I are on the train and ready for an adventure.
TBT to last week when we modded our studio with a custom brick wall, and interviewed four lovely, charming couples..."When Harry Met Sally" style.
Casey - your a genius (and the "interview command center" we made you is a keeper, so good!!) Without a doubt one of the side benefits of having a studio is it gives us lots of time (and leeway) to play, play play!
On this bright and cheery note, Happy Holidays to all!!! It's been a great year.
In studio today...and reminded again that four 250 Plasma lights by @hivelighting **really** make life a lot easier!! We love @hivelighting because they're always pushing tech *and* pushing the industry. We get better... when we work with brands that get better!
Kudos to Jon and the team at Hive! You guys rock!! #smallgiantnyc
Just wrapped up my two day official Steadicam Class @abelcine !!Learned so much. Love the craft and precision. Got swept up by the history and the incredible movie sequences we studied (Goodfellas "Copacabana" I'm looking at you). Haven't had this much fun in a while.
And just in time too - our rig arrives next week!
Since a hallmark of the digital revolution is be nimble and light on your feet ("always be ready to pivot!!"), I decided to take this at face value and literally learn how to dance with a camera, haha.
Gotta love our biz - really keeps you on your toes!! #abelcinerocks
Still waiting to board my flight.
This is terrible.
When your flight gets delayed again and you HAVE to go to Miami's best bakery and get another Nutella Donut and Almond Cap.
Man this really sucks.
Hanging at the beach.
Waiting to board my plane.
