I’ve admittedly been slack on updating this blog with my various projects. So even though it’s currently August of 2015, I’m still going to share this little project I did that was a recap of Tallahassee Magazine’s 2014. This was mainly a little editing job as it took pieces from all the videos we had produced in 2014 and combined them into a little sizzle reel. I’m really looking forward to doing this again at the end of this year as there has been a lot of growth and advancement in our capabilities.
Tallahassee Magazine recently did a story about the jazz scene in the city. One facet of the story was about local jazz musician, Scotty Barnhart.
Most of the time, when I’m shooting videos for the magazine, I’m using an iPad. It’s not the best option out there if you’re looking to get into video production, but for what we’re doing, it does the trick. It’s a great tool that allows me to do a whole bunch of things when I’m out and about. For this photo shoot, the action was taking place in Scotty Barnhart’s office on the FSU campus. One of his students was also there for a teaching session. When the two began talking about doing a duet, I knew it would be awesome for the video to have two different camera angles, but only having one iPad was going to make that tricky. Then I had the thought to also use my personal iPhone, and have a two-camera set up with both devices. They played the song again after this take and I was able to grab a two-shot that I also used in the final video. So with a little bit of cheating, this winds up looking like a three-person camera crew came in to shoot this. I’ve got to applaud Apple on their image stabilization, too. I can’t have been terribly steady on my own when shooting this.
Video was also shot by Tristan Kroening at the B Sharp Jazz Club and I turned that footage into an additional support video for the story.
I shot a video of a photo shoot we did at Tallahassee Magazine for a story about the ladies who run Laughing Stock, which is a theater production group in town. They were quite entertaining and I shot several more minutes that were like this, but whittled it down to what you see here.
Another new issue of Tallahassee Magazine has come out and I have put together a few bonus videos for this issue as well. All four videos were shot by Scott Holstein, but I did all the post production/editing on them.
Below are a few promotional videos that I created to promote new issues of the Rowland Publishing titles. Each video gives a few highlights of what the content will be in the magazine and teases with headlines and photos. The videos are posted to the social media accounts and blogs of the magazines.
The videos were created using Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere.
Yesterday, I mentioned the Tallahassee Magazine online content videos I have been producing. Below are the videos produced for the July/August issue. The first was shot by Scott Holstein. I did the motion graphics on the second and the editing for both.
I’ve been producing bonus content for Tallahassee Magazine’s website. The videos below were shot by Lawrence Davidson, Laura Patrick and Scott Holstein (respectively) and I did the post-production and editing on them. These were all for the March/April issue. I’ll post the July/August videos tomorrow.
