DERBY'S NEW MUSIC VIDEO DIVISION DEBUTS        

G-EAZY'S VISUAL ALBUM THE BEAUTIFUL & DAMNED

There is no limit to what Derby Content can do!  Their new music video division (you can read more about that here) produced G-Eazy's highly anticipated visual album The Beautiful & Damned which dropped alongside his studio album release. All Derby produced, live-action to post. The piece was written and directed by Bobby Bruderle, a new addition to Derby's roster. The dark, stylish film explores the demands and temptations of fame and fantasy in the music industry. We watch the duality of Gerald (his government name) and G-Eazy, as the rapper confronts a serious conflict with his hip-hop alter ego and tries to get back to who he is as a person. 

DERBY'S BRAD HASSE DIRECTS SPOT FOR THE COLORADO LOTTERY

Brad Hasse teamed up with Cactus to show his knack for comedy in this spot for Colorado Lottery. Two cubicle dwellers rehash their weekends on a Monday to find that they had very different experiences.

DERBY AND DAILEY BRING A STORM OF SWEETARTS AT 1000 FRAMES PER SECOND

Get out your umbrellas! Derby's John Poliquin captured the excitement that ensues when a pinata bursts into shower of candy and rains down on all of the partyers.  Using a Phantom Flex camera with a rare high-speed arm, The Bolt, Poliquin caught the characters being showered with SweeTARTS at 1000 frames per second.  As the scene unfolds, characters literally can’t contain themselves while the SweeTARTS fly through the air. The Bolt allowed Poliquin to move the camera incredibly quickly, resulting in dynamic camera movement through beautifully complex slow motion compositions.

TAX FREE FILMS' "IN THE HEART OF ITALY" IS AN ENCHANTING JOURNEY THROUGH ITALY'S BEAUTY AND CUISINES

PICASSO PICTURES' RAIN OR SHINE CREATES SPOT FOR UNIVERSAL'S THE DARKEST HOUR

Rain or Shine used stills from the film along with powerful typography to convey the sense of urgency and drama that is inherent in The Darkest Hour.
