This is a documentary short about Colby and his Appalachian trail adventure. This story gives viewers a sense of what the Appalachian trail is like for adventurers today. The challenges that they can encounter and the wonderful sights, lessons and friendships they take away. Truly a must see. Colby answers and elaborates on my questions that help chisel out his reflection of the trip. The majority of this video was a compiled archives of cell phone and a computer webcam diary that were organised to help tell Colbys story, in Premiere and iMovie.
This is a documentary short telling the story of Chas Bruns and his love for media, and how he followed his love for media through his life in this spectacular interview. The interview was done using a Canon 7D and 18-135mm lens using manual aperture, ISO, shutter speed, zoom and focus, and a LAV microphone. The edit was made on IMovie and Final Cut, manipulating Ken Burns effects on stills and color-correction, to magnify brightness, contrast, vibrance, saturation, shadows, sharpness, and light levels.
My good friend and mentor Chas Bruns, directs, stars and produces “Dirt Cheap – Bar Harbor, Maine”, one of a few of his episodes on Youtube. I was lucky enough to help him film a portion of the feature, including follow shots, over the shoulder, panning, tilting, and establishing shots. Not to mention myself and LED MEDX are featured in the episode. A really great piece!
Campus Green is a collaborative music group myself and four others created in 2010. This particular collaboration is between myself, and the instrumental creator Alec Dacar. Here I used a Bluebird Cardioid Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, recording to Logic Pro. The lyrics were then mixed using plugins of compression, equalization, DeEsser, pitch correction and delay, to give it a more textured and contemporary sound. The visual piece was a metaphor on the lyrics showing how sometimes you need to have faith, and trust yourself through taking shots in life. The video was captured with a camera phone for a “selfie” feel using multiple cross blurring transitions to help convey lyrical points. Color corrected for brightness, vibrance and saturation, using a cartoonism effect to give it a dreamlike feel in iMovie.
This project captured the events of the Wiz Khalifa Rolling Papers tour at the venue Maine State Pier Concert Series for my Media Internship. Here I documented the live performance using my Canon 7D and 18-135mm lens using manual aperture, ISO, shutter speed, zoom and focus. I used specific camera locations around the venue to capture the artist’s performance and the reactions of the audience, to convey live emotions of the show. The projects clips were edited in Final Cut pro, using color-correction, to magnify brightness, contrast, vibrance, saturation, shadows, sharpness, and light levels. The audio was “Knock Knock” by Mac Miller, and “Gang Bang” by Big Sean.
