Joe recently relocated to the Pacific Northwest, after being based in Los Angeles for over 25 years. He has varied professional experience including VP of Production for United Way of America, where he produced and directed international films and PSA’s; director for CBS, ABC/Disney, and FOX network TV programming, international movies in Europe, commercials, corporate films, and documentaries.
The new team will be expanding Victory Studios’ scripted programming arm, beginning with pilot presentations for three TV miniseries, a feature film, high quality commercials, PSA’s, and corporate films.
“We will be filming almost exclusively in the NW. Together, we plan on creating projects with local talent; hiring actors, writers, and crew from the NW for projects filmed right here,” says Conrad.
“The Northwest has an extremely rich pool of talent, and is loaded with interesting and beautiful locations, which we plan on showcasing,” says Joe, who has filmed in more than 21 countries around the world. “It feels great to be back home.”]]>

The Pocket Dolly from Kessler is a compact camera slider that features a unique crank and belt system that provides smooth camera movements and a dramatic look without breaking the budget. This slider is great for smaller format cameras, such as, Canon 5D, 7D, or 60D and can also be used with cameras as large as the Panasonic HVX-200. It can be mounted on a tripod or set on a tabletop. With its all-in-one design you’ll be free to move around and get a variety of shots in the time it would take to just lay out a few feet of traditional dolly track. Check out their product video:
The Eye Direct is a device that works similarly to a teleprompter but instead of displaying text on the screen, a series of mirrors allow the director’s face to be displayed in front of the lens. This allows the subject to talk directly into the lens while still displaying the emotions and reactions you expect from a person-to-person conversation.
“Think fast, good and affordable is a dream? With Victory’s support, we pulled off the impossible and created a high production campaign on time and under budget”, says KING’s creative director, Cherylynne Crowther about Victory Studios recent effort for the Home Team. The Victory Studios team has put the finishing touches on the station’s 2011 Image Campaign. The spots, currently airing, were finished in black and white, (with, of course a few yellow jackets left in!) and feature KING’s anchors, reporters and investigators, blended with a font treatment of key words. A strong music composition, along with Motion Graphics, Compositing, and Color Grading brought the spots together. Tom Skerritt dropped by VS Audio for the VO record. The spots include a 60, “Trust”, along with some 30’s and 05 second tags for each of KING’s on-air journalists. Victory worked with a King-5 Team that included Creative Director – Cherylynne Crowther, Producer – Deb Ellis, Editor – Rico Benjamin, Writer – Deb Ellis/Lisa Dawes, and Production Manager/Producer – Ryan Subica. The footage was directed by Mark Feijo and DP’d by Shawn Anderson.
