    Cole Walliser on Glambot, shooting superstar women like Katy Perry & P!nk, & directing commercials for CoverGirl! | EP 201

    Cole Walliser on Glambot, shooting superstar women like Katy Perry & P!nk, & directing commercials for CoverGirl! | EP 201

    Cole Walliser is most popularly known as the Director of GlamBot content for E! Entertainment. Cole attends major red carpet events (like the Grammy’s & the Emmy’s) to capture super slo-mo shots of Hollywood’s BIGGEST stars utilizing what’s called a The Bolt which is a motion-controlled fast pace robotic arm... The shots are insane.
     
    But that’s not all that Cole does… when he is not shooting celebrities like Ariana Grande & Brad Pitt, he directs major commercials for brands like Cover Girl, Revlon, Cosmopolitan & Disney, and directs music visuals for artists like P!nk, Katy Perry, & more.
    We hope you enjoy this episode!

Super Informative and Entertaining

I have only listened to a handful of episodes so far, but I have already learned so much. Ben and Dave give really great tips and interview other creators so we can learn from them too. I highly recommend this podcast for any creator looking to up their game.

Creative Guide

This podcast is great for any creatives out there looking to expand their careers, learn a lot, or just be entertained. The hosts know how to lead a conversation and really highlight the guests they bring on. Good stuff here.

FIRST EVER review

I think it’s time I stopped slacking and give you guys credit! You should really have to PAY for this podcast (that’s how gem-packed it truly is!!!) To sit in and be a fly on the wall with countless of amazing creators, including Ben & Dave’s own side segment episodes - giving such valuable, priceless insight is something I can’t thank the BWNC fam enough for! This is truly the extra kick in the right direction to start off my day and keep my mind right. Thank you Ben, Dave, and the rest of the BWNC fam! 🙏💙
