Introducing Parker

By | News // Desk, Uncategorized | One Comment

Production Supervisor

We are excited to announce that Parker Loghry will be heading up our Nebraska production efforts. Parker was one of my students when I was teaching at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. We are impressed with Parker and are sure he will uphold the spirit and creative excellence we have been fighting for. Parker graduated from UNK with a degree in Organizational Communication. He works as Director of Organizational Management at Third City Christian Church in Grand Island. Parker routinely runs shoots for Third City with their media team which includes his father. We are very excited for his creative energy and vision. We look forward to working together to expand Red Orchid’s artistry and impact.

BTW Parker’s wife Jane is also an accomplished artist. She may from time to time help us with elements and storyboards :)

Oh and Parker also has a cameo apperance in one of our videos… he has the role of “featured coffee drinker” in our recent video for baristas check it out here and see if you can spot him.

We Are Moving… Kind Of ;)

So the title is a bit misleading… “expanding” is more accurate.

Annie and I will be taking on a bit of a new adventure. I have accepted a position as “Senior Promotions Producer” at Fox 9 in Minneapolis / St. Paul. This will mean moving to Minnesota and the 15th largest news market in the United States. I am extremely excited to work with the Fox 9 team and grow as an artist and a producer.

Starting Red Orchid in Kearney, NE has given us a deep sense of place and community. For the past 8 years we have been building Red Orchid in the Kearney area. We have gone through several changes and it has been an adventure to say the least. Much of the work has been a labor of love. Early on we dreamed about what it might become. We filled up our nights and weekends with re-edits, shoots, and coffee meetings… business expense right;) A big part of our dreams are linked with empowering businesses and organizations in Kearney, Grand Island, Hastings and Nebraska as a whole. We intend to continue serving clients in this area and tell their amazing stories with films that connect others with their passion and purpose.

We are excited for this new opportunity and expect a fresh influx of creative energy into our work with Red Orchid as well. We are also excited to announce our new production supervisor for Nebraska; click here to read more about Parker :)

Kearney Praise Fest 2011 Highlights

By | Production | Notes | No Comments

Last month we worked on a promo for Praise Fest in Kearney, NE which took place last Saturday. We were happy to make it out with the kids despite the heat. The organizers for the event did such a great job putting everything together and getting the word out. We had a great afternoon together and enjoyed the praise & worship music with all of the beautiful scenery of Yanney park. We, of coarse, brought a camera and put together some highlights from the day (sprinkled with our cute kids). :) It was a privilege to support this event and we look forward to next year’s (though hopefully cooler). :)

Red Orchid on NTV’s Good Life

In case you missed it, or live outside NTV’s viewing area here is a recording of our appearance on the Good Life.  Looking at the recording we realized that we were Leslie Means’ last sit-down interview on the show. We talk with Leslie about our “Wedding Films” and what it is like to work as a married couple. Leslie was instrumental in starting the show so it is an honor to be there at the end of an era:)

Also I would like to give a big thank you to Travis and Amanda for letting us use your footage on air. You guys make us look great:)

We would LOVE to hear from you! Say Hello
