Photo Journal: On the road with Metro Studios

It’s been a busy, exciting few months at Metro Studios! Here’s a quick look at some projects we’ve recently been working on.

ACE Awards Live Webcast

We had a great time producing the ACE Awards Live Webcast for hundreds of in-person and online viewers.


Scottsdale Community College

Scottsdale Community College’s Department of Culinary Arts asked us to shoot a series of promotional videos for their program. We learned the secrets of making those cool vegetable garnishes, filleting a huge salmon, frosting a fancy cake… the chefs and students didn’t have to ask us twice to sample their creations!

Getting volunteer diners was a piece of cake!


The Grill Toppers Photo and Video Shoot

What a week it was when Metro Studios took on The Grill Toppers project. Our facility was transformed into the ultimate grilling event, complete with dozens of pounds of meat, countless side dishes, as well as numerous place settings to match all of the NCAA team colors. After getting our product shots, we took the gear, food, and props on the road to several different locations.


Donna, our food stylist extraordinaire, lends her expertise, while Susan, our art director, drops in the lemons “just right.”


Connie, Metro’s senior writer/producer, dresses the set. By the time we finished each shot, the food had been sprayed, glued, and was completely inedible.


Our newest “intern” samples some extra prop food and lends morale support during the shoot while her dad, Aaron, takes care of the video editing.


Kendra, Metro’s project coordinator, directs one of the actors on his grilling technique.



With the photos and videos completed, we are looking forward to building The Grill Toppers website this summer.

Commercial Shoot with Wisconsin Football Coach Bret Bielema

Bret Bielema, head coach for the University of Wisconsin football team was the star of our recent commercial shoot at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin. I wonder if the Big 10 schedule came up in conversation?




Metro Studios’ Social Media Seminar

John Whaley, our Director of Internet Marketing spent a day with Phoenix business professionals teaching them how to grow their businesses through social media marketing.
