Video is only part of the story. There are some pretty cool ways to adjust your audio as well.
A short recap I shot and edited for my church covering an annual Thanksgiving banquet we do for our community in the San Francisco Bay Area. The video was shot with a canon HDSLR with vintage lenses (Helios 44m, Minolta 50mm Prime, Vivitar 70-210) and the Tokina 11-16. The background instrumental music is from coldplay (The scientist). The mic I used was a Rode Video mic directly into the camera. It would have been better for me to use a lav for cleaner audio.
Please read description before critiquing, thanks.
This was a 30 second spot recorded for an online contest.
This was last minute and rushed. So much so, It was due hours from shooting. To make matters more difficult My battery died & I was w/o a backup. Luckily, my sister who was visiting on vacation had a g5 macbook handy. So I recorded all the audio and video through the isight camera and built in mic.
The client requested to shoot a video profile to help her with expanding her marketing to other organizations and wanted a personal feel to the finished piece. We collaborated on the project and the end result uses a mix of b/w
Production Specifics: All production was done solo - ie; I managed both cameras and audio as well as interviewing the subject.
