I’ve recently been asked about if I’ll bring back the column. To be honest, I really missed it too. I love getting a peek into other creative people’s lives. Or maybe I’m just nosey. Either way, I’m bringing back Career Day!
To kick us off again, I’ve got Brian Morrow from Shark Pig.
Film maker. Day dreamer. Rapper. Creative director of Shark Pig, a full service production company/digital agency.
Haven’t heard of Shark Pig? Here’s a little background info for you…
I’ve done about a million weird gigs. I was a paper boy, a wood workers apprentice, a projectionist at a movie theater. I installed a telecommunications network at a housing project for Indian Monks. I worked at the flag ship Taco John’s in my home town – Cheyenne, Wyoming. I painted two building sized grain silos in the world’s weirdest town – Fairfield, Iowa. I was the head of Security on the movie Hesher. I got sent to Dubai as an air courier with one hour notice, same thing with Rome except that time I saw the Pope!
I’ve stood at the finish line of marathons and photographed thousands of runners drag their nearly broken bodies across. I’ve shot hundreds of graduations and hundreds of weddings. I’ve spliced fiber optic cable in cold tiny trailers and mounted giant satellite dishes on the top of radio towers. One time I was hired to pretend that I worked at this architectural design firm so it seemed like they had more employees during a big client meeting. I ended up editing a rap video and answering to the name “Brant.” It’s all in a days work.
I finally stopped taking day rates when I started a production company called Shark Pig. Now I just have one job, but it keeps me busier than ever. Our recent clients include: Levi’s, Purina, UGG, Midori, Audi, McDonalds, Pfizer, Lucky Magazine and Paul Mitchell to name drop a little. I’m currently producing a feature documentary on the life and work of Hal Ashby and trying to remind myself to read a comic book or play a video game from time to time.
Do you have questions for Brian to answer about Shark Pig, his life before Shark Pig, his personal life, his favorite pair of pants, etc.? Send them all over (don’t worry; they’ll all be completely anonymous) for Brian to answer at email@example.com by next Tuesday, October 21st. Brian will be on D&tG the following Tuesday, October 28th to answer your questions and talk more about his work and his life! So get cracking on asking some questions!
