Appliance sales, service and parts in Rochester, NY

More behind the scenes pictures.

March 6, 2014

Other than the actors, most of the talent behind the commercials were in their early 20's. They made me feel old. (I'm 30). Here are a few more photos of everyone in action.

Jeff Miller and Sullivan Slentz

Juan Pablo Makeup Timer

Juan was under the weather as stated in previous posts. His nose wouldn't stop running. It made for a very busy day for Makeup/Stylist Robyn Fazio.

Other than thanking God that Juan was sick so she could be close to him, Robyn did makeup for others.

The Cinematographer and Director of the Juan Pablo commercials.

March 5, 2014

We all had a blast shooting the Juan Pablo commercials! Here are a few photos...

Sullivan Slentz and Aaron Gordon

Aaron Gordon (left) is the finest cinematographer in the region. If you disagree with him, he'll gently convince you to change your mind. His people skills are off the charts. Sullivan Slentz (right) is the writer and director of this endeavour. He's a multifaceted, out of the box, brilliant individual. It's an honor to know him.

Aaron and Sully a bit confused

Both guys are always upbeat and know how to lighten the mood.

I'm humbled by how much my staff cares for its customers. When dealing with a customer, my staff continues to put themselves in the shoes of the consumer. Excellent customer service is what has been building this business via word of mouth for many years now. This award is a testament to the character of my employees. Only 5% of Angie's List businesses receive this award. Keep it up guys!

Why did Juan come up to shoot commercials for Rochester Appliance?

The first commercial aired only a week ago! Since then there has been a lot of buzz locally and nationally. The main question I've heard is, "Why would he ever do this for you?"

Juan went to college with my brother-in-law at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester NY. When I found out Juan was going to be the next Bachelor, I immediately tried to get him to be in a commercial for me. I've grown my business via word of mouth for years and this would be a great opportunity to get more awareness of my business. With the help of my brother-in-law, I was able to get in contact with Juan. He was surprisingly open to the concept. The friendships he formed while in college made a great impact on his life, and he wanted to give back to those who have helped him. Even amidst his busy schedule, he made the time to fly up the weekend before Christmas.

He came down with a sinus/head cold just before leaving for Rochester. He could have easily canceled the trip and have been justified. Filming the commercials took about 8 hours, and he didn't complain once. He could have been home with his family or making much more money elsewhere. Instead, he was upbeat and friendly throughout the entire process. Giving back is what he chose to do, and for that I am truly grateful.

“Just Looking” on 13 Wham this morning.

February 18, 2014

Andrea Holland (the "oh I'm just looking too" woman) is sisters with Norma Holland from 13 Wham! I did not know this until this morning. Norma covered the commercial this morning on 13 Wham!

You can check out the 13 Wham segment HERE. You can check out Andrea's Blog HERE. She was a blast to work with.

Here's a picture of them together with Juan. I took this myself. I'm sorry for the awful angle. I should have noticed Jeff Miller's head in the background.
