We have begun production in New York on the commercial for the Bermuda based female clothing line. Once the commercial is released I will disclose the name and website. New York has been the landscape for many fashions and we thought it fitting to use it as the backdrop for this clothing line. id I mention that it feels like it’s 6 degrees outside? Well it does but the mere passion for creation makes the climate take a backseat. I spent some time today scouting locations and bright and early we will begin filming. Stay tuned for the exclusive photos of behind the scenes of production. If you are in the New York area and are looking to be an extra let me know on twitter @deshaundavis

My interview with Spike Lee in Jacksonville Florida was a adventurous experience to say the least. Brother Spike and I disagree about many positions but I have always admired his courageousness and his accomplishments as writer/director. We talked about Jacksonville and how it was a major hub for the slave trade once upon a time and how that tide has changed in this current time - especially now with a black mayor: wowzer. In the midst of our reflective and reminiscent conversation we were interrupted by a lady that felt Spike should make a movie about the life of Dorthy Dandrith and that SHE should be the staring actress. Not only had Halle Berry already inked this role, and the film is probably at RedBox, but this lady was no Halle Berry. I guess she didn’t think resembling the acclaimed singer was a deal breaker for the film. She went on to SING in front of us and create her own casting moment. This was in a closed, security protected room. Not quite sure how she even got back there. One thing she didn’t lack was confidence. Mr. Lee smiled and took her script and was very polite with her. Unfortunately that event was so bizarre that it ended our interview. I couldn’t help but think to myself, did this lady “do the right thang?” #Iknowthatwascorny

It’s no surprise to those that know me that the FOX series HOUSE™ is one of my all time favorite shows on television. Not JUST the rebellious genius of Dr. House (played by Oxford, England’s, Hugh Laurie) but the visual experience is simply gorgeous. And just when you think it couldn’t get any better their decision use Canon 5D Mark ii for the finale episode told me that we were cut from the same cloth because that’s my camera of choice. Although you can often predict the “essence” of what will happen on the roller coster ride from each episode - from what can’t be solved to the “ah hah” moments - it’s still an incredible ride week after week. My Monday nights will never be the same.

The Foose film is complete. Wish I could share it with you now but can’t do so. I can tell you that today sources told me that you may find it in the vicinity of the Speed Network. This was an informative project. It amazes me how devoted people are about their specialty cars. Not only do they spend a lot of money making these masterpieces come together but I kept catching Chip Foose polishing off the Gullwing that he designed. Stay tuned here for release details about this project. Thanks so much for your support!
