Case Study: San Diego Gas & Electric

This project started with an email from Kevin Stout. Kevin is a creative lead at MeadsDurket in San Diego.

If there was ever a more perfect brief for a commissioned project I’ve never seen it.

It said, “Let’s shoot some linemen with their gear in the supply yard next week.”

I said, “I’m leaving now!”

When I arrived four days later, I discovered that I had access to a half dozen experienced linemen, eight trucks, gigantic spools of cable and perfect California winter light. It was an embarrassment of creative riches.

The results turned out to be my best work from that season.
