Eureka Place “Using X-rays Subsea” Web Series

Eureka Place - Using X-rays Subsea - Kevin Lapsley

Had a great time being on this web series, Eureka Place, for the production company, Strike Anywhere. Left a sunny Philadelphia, on an 80 degree day in March, and quickly was reminded that it was still March and I should have brought a warmer jacket with me numerous times.

We bounced up and down the east coast that month working on this web series. When we were in Richmond filming, I remembered that I had worked in Richmond before. When we were in State College, I was reminded that college was more fun when you didn’t have responsibilities. And when we were standing on top a mountain looking down over a snow dusted Albany I was reminded that it still was March and freaking cold and I should have brought a warmer jacket.

But overall, I remember working with a small group of very professional guys, from all over the country, that month and I think we got some great footage.

Truth & Salvage Co. “Appalachian Hilltop” Music Video

Got to experience the Appalachian hilltop that inspired the Truth & Salvage Co. song “Appalachian Hilltop” on this music video shoot. Director, Steve Condon, and I got to spend the weekend with the band, and family, in the home town and at the family farm of band member Bill Smith that set the scene for the shoot.

The video almost didn’t come together because of a lot of rain but we set up one shot and things just kind of fell into place after that. Had a great time with some great people on this shoot. Very glad things worked out because this band and song are great. Looking forward to hearing more from Truth & Salvage Co.

Phil Vassar’s “Love Is Alive” Music Video

Was happy to assist the 10:10 Creative, and director Steve Condon, on directing and filming Phil Vassar’s “Love Is Alive” music video. We filmed in Chicago, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Nashville for this music video. It was a crazy schedule but we got it done as usual.

But yeah, had a blast running around on stage in Milwaukee and Chicago getting the shots we needed. Even got to do a little background work on this project. I’m in there at the record shop buying some records.

Bringing CoachLinked Venture to Life

I recently decided to join a small group of outstanding individuals from the business sector in bringing the sports app CoachLinked to life.

CoachLinked will be a sports networking platform that will strive to connect the athletic world together. The platform will be a one stop shop for coaches, athletic departments, teams, organizations, agents, media, fans and more to connect securely and safely to look for jobs in the athletic industry, connect and share ideas within their profession with their peers.

This is just beginning of what will probably be a long and fulfilling journey of creating a very robust platform from the ground up. Looking forward to the adventure ahead.

Eureka Place “Time Travel” Web Series

Eureka Place - Time Travel - Kevin Lapsley

Here’s the first installment of this Eureka Place web series that I was happy to be a part of by the production company, Strike Anywhere. This installment, of a couple webisodes being created for GE, was filmed in and around the Richmond, VA area.

Very cool to see the piece put together and to see how it turned out. At the time I knew we were working with some great equipment and had a cool team of people in place working together to get the shots we got.

“The North Star” Movie Trailer

The North Star - Movie Trailer - Kevin Lapsley

The North Star” movie trailer was released. Don’t let the trailer quality fool you. I was right there standing directly next to the cinematographer, Keiko Nakahara, for pretty much every shot and this could be a much better film than the trailer depicts.

“The North Star” post-production just still might be getting their feet under them, but I am sure the trailer will change as this movie will probably make a long festival and screening run on it’s way to distribution at some point.

This period piece about slavery has a good story and was able to put together a strong cast Jeremiah Trotter, John Diehl, Lynn Whitfield, Keith David, Douglas Gibson, Thomas C. Bartley Jr. and one of my local favorites Christopher Mann.
