Media: HDSLR Filming / Post Production / Photography
Behind the scenes
This is one full session [out off four] from a full day event for global company client KENEXA [publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange].
This is a 36mins clip but you can skip through it [ideally in HD] to get an idea of our production style.
We set up 3 cameras, two at the back of the room and one roaming.
Also included are 3 short interviews we filmed during a coffee break. We had only 10mins but still managed to pull off our signature multi-cam setup.
Unfortunately we were in the same room as the other delegates and therefore background busy networking noise is present.
A small note at the end of the clips the KM logo is old [as this was filmed at the end of 2011], the new one is less festive.
Photography was also documented [photojournalism style] and the client had an online viewable gallery [view here], downloadable full set and an available hard copy.
As usual I film with at least 3 full HD cameras and it was great to be able to cut between cameras to create an engaging final video for all viewers.
A forth video timeline was created for the slideshow presentations and using the wide shot as a reference the speakers slides are placed into the multi-cam timeline when required so the viewer can see the slides in full screen [this takes up quite a bit of time in the edit].
300gb is about the usual size of a data from an event like this, lots of processing power and storage, not to mention memory cards and batteries were required.
This was filmed before purchasing the impressive VAF-5D2 filter from the U.S. to reduce moire and aliasing on the Canon 5d mark II. Not many people yet have this filter, but it would have been useful to use with at least one of the delagates suits. More info can be found on our facebook page.
