So my friend Hank makes coffee and the other day I was telling him about NYVS and how I want to make a good video ASAP. Hank says, "Make me a commercial" and of course it's for the usual deal; I get paid nothing and he hopefully gets lots of sales. I saw a funny video about this a while back from @aplusk, but I think this time it's worth it.
I'm working on creating a media production company comprised of veterans and their families. Back in WWII lots of vets went into media. Movies of course, but many became newspaper reporters, photographers, novel writers and of course one became Judge Wapner (US Army 42-44).
With the large number of veterans returning from war and the lack of jobs back in the good ole US of A, I think my concept of giving veterans jobs in the media is going to work and work wonderfully. So I'm starting off company by investing in a few things; my i7 HP desktop with 8 gigs of ram. Adobe Premiere Pro CS4. My son's Pentax K7 DSLR that shoots HiDef and my HF100 HiDef Canon video cam. Along with a few other things, I've put about 3-5k into this so far and I'm out of funds to do much more. But thanks to NYVS I can learn to use all my equipment for only 10 bucks a month! Seriously, where on earth can I get a film education for that?!
So taking Michael's advice, I set up an easy shoot and shot only what I intended to use. I didn't do lots of cuts, gather hours of footage, etc. I set up the camera, shot about 4 versions of the same thing and added a voice over using Pinnacle because I've only started my Adobe classes a few hours ago.
The shot above is the print version of the video, with a slightly different script. Below is what's printed on the side but is too small to read.
I hope you like it and I love comments!
"Her first date to a college guy was supposed to be to a cadet at the military academy, or a medical student, or even a guy that owns a shirt with a collar.
He’s made one thing clear; his daughter is more important to him than his freedom.
Devil Dog Brew™ can’t take away the sting of his first born growing into a woman but it does help to know if he does end up behind bars for an act of violence he can still get bags of Columbian Supremo Bold behind bars. The full-flavored, dark roasted, gourmet coffee made from 100% Arabica beans warms his warrior’s heart. However, tonight we’re recommending the decaf…and a few hours of gun cleaning to help pass the time.
You can buy Columbian Supremo Bold Decaf, or regular, or choose from one of the other gourmet coffees Hank makes at DevilDogBrew.com™"
