Video Work

Original Shot at 1080 HD
not all interviews were shot by me

This year, two clients needed some video work.  The first assignment was to conduct testimonial interviews for an award recipient.  Referee Magazine presents a yearly honor for a sports official.  Interviews were needed as testimonials to the honoree.  Five separate sessions were assigned.  Much like a still photo assignment, each sessions had to be coordinated, schedule a convenient time, location found.  But unlike a photograph, audio needs to be recorded and questions need to be asked so that the interviewee can answer in condensed fashion.  There are challenges, each location has its issues as well as finding ways to make the subject comfortable.  Doing video is another dimension that you always have to be on your toes to solve problems and deliver what the client needs.

The second video for the National Guard Youth Foundation is on their home page.  The idea was to make a montage, with each cadet adding one word about their experience with the program.  Working with people not used to being in front of the camera can be interesting.  However, with the right direction it is easy to put people at ease.  With a good editor, the final piece does the trick.  Everyone was satisfied with the result .    View the video.
