What do you want to be when you grow up?
I think we can all remember being asked this question: and we would all answer with the first thing that popped into our heads – a lion tamer, a doctor, a professional ice cream taster…
This is David and Julian here, Director and Producer of When I Grow Up - the fun and exciting TV series for 6 to 12 year olds showing what they can be when they grow up! From photography to zoo keeping, fire fighting to fashion design – the opportunities are endless.
Guided by two hip and hilarious hosts Lib Campbell (The Shak) and Courtney Dober (Getaway), and aided by their cheeky super computer KNOW_ALL, the kids will meet with industry experts to learn about the jobs that they are interested in.
The idea came about as we were talking about our childhood and the lack of knowledge that we had about all the jobs out there in the big, wide world. Our research showed that there are no shows on TV about this subject for kids. Plus, most children’s shows feature grown ups as the main subjects of the shows, rather than focusing on the kids themselves.
From there, the concept was born: we wanted to create a children’s program that is about letting kids’ experience the jobs that they are interested in, and document their journey and experience.
With a focus on positive and fun experiences, When I Grow Up is shot with a stylised cinematic approach to capture the excitement of these moments, as well as having a unique and naturalistic look that will differentiate itself from the cheap sets and trivial content of studio-set kids shows.

"Chasing angels or fleeing demons, go to the mountains." - Jeffrey Rasley
Months leading towards this trip, I remember I was through quite a rough patch. Nepal gave me my much needed break. Given my dreadful predicament, I thought the timing was rather apt. I needed to get away. I needed to hide away. Just like the saying goes, everything has its time. So this was mine, and mine alone.
I expected the trek to Poon Hill to be challenging as I have never been much of a trekker - this was my first trail that spanned over several nights. Unfortunately the wretched weather up on the mountains did not make it any easier. It started fine on the first day but by the second day, it was just constant rainfall. I was drenched and soaked wet in my own sweat mixed with rain throughout two straight days. No sunshine, nothing. Just mist and water all around. It was so cold at one point that I decided to take shelter and have something warm in one of the teahouses along the trek. I was shivering and I could not stop.
I did not make it to Poon Hill. The mist was too thick at dawn, swallowing the trek altogether. I was disappointed. I wanted it to mean something to me, that I had made it there. But that’s life I guess. Although I could stay another night at Ghorepani to try my luck the next morning, I decided to continue on since the weather did not look like it’s clearing up anytime soon. Perhaps another time I told myself.
By the end of my journey in Nepal, I did not experience any miracle enlightenment - yes, just my own wishful thinking. None of my problems had vanished. I just took a break from them and I was convinced I was ready to get back to the real world. To tell you the truth, things got worse after I returned. Unfortunate but that’s how my story goes. Since then, however, things have slowly cleared up and I find myself in a better place now. A place not as mystical, as serene, as sacred as the high Himalayan peaks and valleys, but a much better place than where I was nonetheless.
My trip took me to three main Nepalese cities: Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Bhaktapur, in this order. The timelapse footage captured the places in the same sequence I had visited them. Hope you like it and thanks for watching my first feeble attempt at timelapses.

"The Perfectionist" - George Lawrence for Coca-Cola
There is no question that Coca-Cola is a successful & iconic beverage, one which many believe to be the “perfect” product. Our goal with this spot is tell a true & timeless story of substance in order to humanize the concept of “perfection.”
The first step was to find a real person who solely embodies the true spirit of “perfection” within their craft. Fortunately, this was easy for us. The main subject, George Lawrence, is the father of one of the creators/directors of the spot, Joey L. Joey knew there was no better person to portray this truthful message than the person responsible for raising him to be so detail oriented. It’s always a great relief to know that there are people out there just like us who are very passionate about their craft.
This piece holds a very special place in our hearts because it further instilled in us what we already believe: If you do what truly makes you happy, and do the best job you can, then success & happiness are inevitable.
In collaboration with Coca-Cola for Father’s Day 2012, we wanted to share a deeper look into the motivation behind this film. Please check out “The Perfectionist” - Behind The Story:
