Panasonic LUMIX GX85/GX80 Launch Videos
In early 2016 I was commissioned to create launch videos for the new Panasonic LUMIX GX85 (GX80 in Europe and GX7 Mark II in Japan). The first video is an "Impressions" video, meant to convey the artist's (me) impressions of the camera. The second is a "4K Sample" video, showing simply a collection of videos shot in 4K on the camera. These were shot over four days in New Orleans, and involved a total crew of ten people.
DxO ONE Standalone Enhancements
This video was created to highlight the feature enhancements to the DxO ONE in a recent software update. We upped the ante here, adding live action video outside of the studio to the production.
Panasonic LUMIX Post Focus videos
These two videos were commissioned by Panasonic to promote their new "Post Focus" feature found in select LUMIX cameras.
DxO Labs has commissioned a series of videos on both their software, and the revolutionary DxO ONE camera.
Kay Brown, Tupperware Manager
The client needed a promotional video for her website, showing off one of Tupperware's products, the "Quick Chef Pro". She specifically wanted a tight shot of the "whirling blades", and in traditional cooking show fashion, we included a bird's eye view camera, bringing this to a three-camera shoot.
BNI "One Word" Video Series
I shot a series of "One Word" videos for our local BNI (Business Networking International) chapter, of which I'm also a member. These were mini promotional videos for our chapter and BNI as a whole.
Alenka's Kitchen: Slovenian Crêpes! — FCPX Training Content
I created this video solely to have content to create a Final Cut Pro X training series (available here). We shot this over the course of a day—I did the lighting and shooting and editing; my young daughter helped with the sound (when the audio changes, that's because, um, someone forgot to push record so we only had camera-audio!), and that's my wife in the video. I'm not saying this is Food Network worthy, but it came out pretty good. It's a little long, but fun!
The first video is my self-recorded introduction, where I explain the training and the content, and also discuss some of the technical aspects of shooting. The second is the "TV show" that we created in the training.
Vincent Laforet's "Nocturne" Behind The Scenes Video
Vincent asked me to cut this; I wasn't involved in the shooting at all. Actually if memory serves, I didn't know about the project until it was shot, and was handed a drive full of video and still and asked to assemble a "behind the scenes"! You can also read a little about the process, and the drama going into this (the video was released, then pulled for ages, then finally re-released) on my blog, here.
Ducati Promo Video for Apple Final Cut Pro Launch 2007
This promo was created by Apple as demo content for an Apple Final Cut Pro launch in 2007. I was still photographer on the shoot, and primary editor and colorist for post.
Pipeline Masters Surf Competition Promo Video for Apple Final Cut Pro Launch 2008
This promo was created by Apple as demo content for an Apple Final Cut Pro launch in 2008. I was producer and still photographer on the shoot, and primary editor and colorist for post.
Black Eyed Peas "Don't Phunk With My Heart" for iTunes
In 2005, I was at Apple and we did a special production with the Black Eyed Peas for an iTunes promotional piece, and also used the footage to demonstrate the then-new multicam feature of Final Cut Pro. I edited the video that was used, however I don't have rights to publish it. If you'd like to see it, fill out the form below and I can grant private access to view it, which will be revoked 24 hours later. Sorry… CYA and all that.
"A Journey to Love" iMovie for iOS Training Content
If there's good cheese and bad cheese in video, this is Camembert. It's sappy, but it's cute! The story here is I was again shooting content strictly for the purpose of having wholly-owned footage for a training video. This training was on iMovie for iOS (available here), and this is the completed video that is created in the training course. This was shot and edited 100% on the iPad 3. Not too shabby!
Backlit Box Unboxing
This is another self-shot video; no one involved but me here. I shot a video of myself unboxing a product that I would be giving away in a future contest. I wanted to capture my real reactions as a promo video for the company, backlitbox.com, both for their promotional purposes and also to promote my contest.
