Filming the Remodel of the Governor's Mansion

In late 2018, B&B owners Bob Klebba and David Waugh brought Tarazod onboard to document the remodel of their new property purchase--the former Wisconsin Governor's Mansion in Madison. The plan for the 1854 sandstone building was to turn it into a hotel, but this feat would require many months of work and major renovations throughout the house.

The initial video production took place in November of 2018. We then returned in January 2019 for more updates. Finally today on July 10th, eight months after that first shoot, we finished filming the remodel.

FINISHED INTERIOR


Robert did the first two shoots by himself, but this time he brought along skilled videographer, Jeff Modjeska, to help capture the final footage with his Sony camera and Ronin gimbal.

When the edit is completed, the video project will consist of three distinct episodes showing the various stages of the remodel. David and Bob plan to donate the series to the Wisconsin Historical Society for archival purposes.

"Beast Bike Beauty" Screening Tonight

Our short, Beast Bike Beauty, screened tonight at the Madison Independent Filmmakers Meetup. Received some good feedback from the group with insights into a couple things we hadn't considered before. It's always nice to see how a room reacts to a project and to hear afterwards how certain scenes worked (or didn't work ) for individuals.

Music Video Weekend

Had a fantastic time on set this weekend! Fellow filmmaker and director Aly Seeger invited Robert to be a part of the crew for a music video featuring the rap artist Reconsiderate.




Our DP was Jeff Modeska. Robert was gaffer and ran second camera when needed.






Brian Patterson was a very busy grip as well as the script supervisor. Evan Weisrock also contributed to the grip duties and lighting setup.
