Commercial shoot at Curacao

Most of the show content that we produce is done in our building at our studio.  Once in a while, we do video shoots on location.  Today was one of those days.

I spent the afternoon at Curacao.  Curacao is a store located in a strip mall southwest of I-10 and 6th Avenue and could be best classified as a department store.  But, it's a bit of an unusual style department store because they just sell hard goods (no clothing) like electronics, furniture, appliances, bikes, that sort of thing.  It's a gigantic store and very nice inside.

We shot some segments that will air this fall on the show.  I hung out at the shoot to support.

While I was there, I shot some behind the scenes photos of the video shoot and also some photos of the inside of the store.
