IMPORTANT THINGS I LEARNED WHILE SHOOTING MY FIRST FEATURE FILM

Going into my first feature film was scary. It was scary despite having several years of experience on sets and several short films under my belt. Just the fact of how many days it would take to film. 21. We had planned for about 19. So here are some tips I learned along the way.

SEC Country and Jeff Woods

WE ARE VOLUNTEERS MUSIC VIDEO

A recent project I had the pleasure of being apart was SEC Country & Jeff Woods’ “We are Volunteers” music video. It was a very small crew, just myself, the singer, the producer, and his wife. We filmed through the streets leading up to a Tennsense game. It was a very run and gun style filming with mostly natural light. Occasionally on the performance shots we used a reflector board to make Jeff’s face pop off the background.

Pepsi Co

TRAINING VIDEOS

Recently myself and Riverside Studios (http://riverside-studios.com/) filmed a small series of training videos for Pepsi Co and Gatorade. The videos included a small conference at a hotel and tours around their facility. We shot the video using 2 c100s and the brand new c200. We mostly used the c200 to get slow motion shots of the machinery working since the client only needed an HD deliverable.
