Hudson Hawk Brand Film
Hudson Hawk Barber & Shop Brand Film
Hudson Hawk was created by co-owners Thad and Paul in 2014 and has grown to 6 shops across the midwest, with 2 more in the works and plans to expand across the entirety of the heart of the country. This last year they contacted me to do some creative direction, design and photography, along with the biggest request - a brand film. Hudson Hawk began out of Thad’s garage, but exploded overnight, and with that lacked a proper insight or explanation of their company, culture and story.
The production began with am myriad of meetings with Thad and Paul to discuss exactly what the film needed to capture, how their story needed to be told and how we would be achieve that. After months of pre-production, I spent 4 weeks with a Sony FS7 and a small crew and filmed interviews, inside their many shops, and lifestyle footage of clients across a myriad of hobbies and vignettes.
And the film above is what came from that process.
