Ric was asked to Direct a series of spots with a fast turn-around to highlight the creation of NBC The Voice’s top 4 talent’s music videos, sponsored by Chase’s Freedom Unlimited card: Adam Wakefield, Alison Porter,Hannah Huston, and Laithe Al-Saadi.
With extreme deference to the the other production team creating the music videos, Ric was able to create unique pieces that stand alone and share the personality and excitement of the different musical artists, while getting us excited about seeing the final product.

Ric’s unique talents as both Director and DP were put to use creating fun, driving promos for CBS’ airing of the ACM Awards. I think the following BTS shot (by Cliff Lipson) beautifully illustrates his ability to engage with the talent, (Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley) even while juggling two roles and a setting sun on set in the Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas.
