Tom Driscol manager of NY Shooter Supply contacted Criterion to shoot a product review video of the Glock 43. NY Shooter Supply is located in Albany NY aims to provide the law abiding citizens of New York State with quality ammunition and top-shelf shooting equipment.

This 2-day shoot required 1 day at Toms house and shooting range and 1 day in Criterion’s studio. Armed with Criterions new Sony A6000 video camera we set out to Tom’s house. Tom began firing the Glock 43 from different distances and at several targets. He then rated the gun on multiple levels and gave his personal review of the gun. A few days later we met at Criterions in house studio to complete the shoot. How did the Glock 43 perform? What’s Tom’s shooting range like? The video answers these questions and so much more!
Criterion was contacted by the IVC Filter Lawyers at Martin, Harding and Mazzoti LLP (MHM) for video producer consultation services on a 30 minute TV pilot called Community Spotlight. If you don’t know the heavy hitters, The law offices of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP specialize in personal injury lawsuits as a result of automobile accidents. The shoot was scheduled for 1 day at WRGB.
The idea behind Community Spotlight is to highlight people and organizations that support and help community. Throughout the years Martin, Harding & Mazzotti LLP (MHM) sponsors, and has initiated, many programs that benefit the community, such as The Free Cab Ride Program that gives people free cab rides during holiday times– and the free helmet program that provides bike helmets to kids. Community spotlight is another example of Martin Harding and Mazzotti’s (MHM) continued dedication to our community and we are glad we can help!
Another Foundry Criterion team up for Uncommon Schools, this time in Boston. Uncommon Schools contacted The Foundry about shooting a short form documentary at one of the schools in their network. From there Jesse Matulis from The Foundry contacted Criterion and asked are you ready for an adventure? Our answer…YES! Using Airbnb to book the accommodations Jesse proclaimed we’d be staying on a houseboat. Unfortunately the sea was angry, like an old man returning soup at a deli (George Costnaza) and no fish were caught. It was all smooth sailing on the video shoot though. Criterion once again was proud to partner with The Foundry to deliver a high quality, informational and emotional video for Uncommon Schools.
Jesse Matulis of The Foundry contacted Criterion looking for assistance to shoot a video of Uncommon Schools diversity conference. Uncommon Schools starts and manages outstanding urban charter public schools that close the achievement gap and prepare low-income students to graduate from college. From the title you could guess a road trip was needed to get to Brooklyn. Uncommon Schools has network of free public charter schools in Boston, Newark, Camden, Troy, Rochester, New York and, Brooklyn New York. Equipped with the proper tools for the job including the Canon C100 and Canon 5D we loaded into the Ford Transit and set off. The shoot was one day so the team set out early (no sleep till Brooklyn) and returned late. Criterion was extremely proud to work with The Foundry and Uncommon Schools and look forward to our next collaboration.
