FUTURE GENERATIONS | DENVER – SHOOT DAY 1

150 150 Cyrus Crossan

DENVER, CO – A lot has changed since our scouting trip a few weeks ago. It looks like Mother Nature had different plans for us. We initially scouted two beautiful locations in Buena Vista, Colorado, an equestrian ranch and a wonderful cul-de-sac home. As we arrived to the Denver area on Thursday, it quickly dawned on us that it’s going to snow, and snow a lot. Ruben, Josh and I quickly scrambled yesterday to come up with alternative locations as we drove south of Denver to a town called Pueblo which is forecasted (fingers crossed!) to just be partly cloudy or rainy on Monday (we will see).

Pueblo is a beautiful town where we found suitable locations in the riverwalk area of the town. There are some pretty old neighborhoods in Pueblo that definitely give off an “Americana” type of vibe. We plan to spend the night on Sunday near Pueblo to give us a head start Monday morning.

The first part of the shoot went well today! We shot one of three talent in East Denver high school, a beautiful building built in the early 1900s that definitely has that picturesque look we were aiming for. It’s still snowing and supposed to snow all day and night here in Denver, snowball fight anyone?

FUTURE GENERATIONS SCOUT TRIP | DENVER – MAR. 14-15TH

DENVER , CO – One of the great results of Touchstone Energy On Tour is that it has provided the grounds for inspiration for our future commercials and marketing. We enjoyed our time visiting two Colorado co-ops last October and now have come back for a scout visit for one of multiple new commercials that are being produced in house. On Monday, March 14th, we arrived to the sweet, crisp Denver air and headed to the Donna Baldwin Talent agency to find our actors for our upcoming “Future Generations” spot.

“Future Generations” will be a 30 second spot, featuring 3 generations of co-op family, from the grandfather who experienced electrification, to the father and to the son, who is the future generation. There’s a sense of pioneering spirit in this spot and Denver’s rugged yet beautiful scenery provides that vibe. On Tuesday, we headed southwest to Buena Vista to check out some locations and were not disappointed. The On Tour team plans to be back in Denver mid-April for the shoot. Check back soon for more behind the scenes footage from commercial conceptualization to post production.
