Manny Wilkins is busy. He was due to fly in from LA from our shoot and pinning down an exact time or place remained a challenge, even days before our shoot. The date kept changing.
We used current students and a few people from the communication office as extras for our shoot. To keep the energy light and filled with emotion I tried out a few new improv games that I asked everyone to play. Then, walked though the group as everyone was laughing documenting it.
It was 110 degrees on the day of our shoot and we managed to stay right on Wilkins' schedule. I think the final ad looks really good. It's always a treat to return to Tempe, Arizona.
