PBR Easy hosted a commercial video contest for the low calorie version of their beer. We captured footage on a cloudy day at The Foundation in the River Arts District, and featured Josh Weinert living the easy life, and showing off some skate tricks. I produced the commercial for free pizza and beer, Thomas Goddard was Director of Photography, and Braethun Bharathae-Lane was sound engineer.

GOOD HAIR is also slated to screen at the Films on Tap event in Charlotte, NC on Monday 4/24, conveniently one day after the COMEDY & CURLS event in the same city. Birdsong Brewing Co. is hosting Films on Tap this season, and a wonderful witbier called Doin’ Thyme has been selected to pair with the film in order show the characters’ transition from the winter of their relationship into the springtime. The programmers were nothing but supportive when we met at the pairing, and I am excited for an event that promotes two of my favorite things: film and beer!
Our producer @ted.kendrick and our sound mixer @official_sexythomas picked the perfect beer to pair with #goodhairthemovie for Films on Taps in Charlotte, NC on April 24th. Also, if you’re in Charlotte the day before, check out our show Comedy & Curls at Peace Pipe on April 23rd!! #goodhair #filmsontap #charlotte #charlottenc #charlottefilm #charlottecomedy #comedy #standup #film #writer #director #actor #producer #northcarolina #peacepipe #beer #cocaine
