This is a short video I made to encourage more volunteers to work at the Hope Distribution Center. The goal was to familiarize potential volunteers with the Hope Distribution Center and what they might be doing on any given day of volunteering.
So, we have about 200 lbs of dogs, and a machine that will peel them in about 5 seconds. The task? Shoot and edit a product demo video for this machine…wait…what? We only have about 5 seconds?
This is where you scrounge around for about 7 cameras, set them all up, turn them all on and let it run (thank God for digital…seriously, remember when we had to change out film?)
Here’s a short bit of what I did yesterday. This was shot with my iPhone. Whatever your fan-boy status is with Apple, their phones shoot 240 fps…that’s pretty cool.
Floating around Smith Mountain Lake in the heart of Virginia.
A wonderful weekend with good friends, good food, good weather and a GoPro Hero camera.
A special thanks to our gracious hosts, The Cooper Family. Thanks isn’t even enough for what they’ve given us over the last 20 years. We are truly blessed.
Here are some test shots I did of the Plaza Fountain. I like the 2nd and 3 shot…the 4th isn’t bad, but it pans too fast. I’m learning what are good speed and distance combos while doing time lapses.
Went out tonight to catch the evening sun but I forgot about the last few days of winter…my finger tips were numb. But the shot is kinda cool. I’ll do it better when the days warm up later this spring.
This is what I do during most days (that I’m not climbing around a meat processing plant)…
This is how you try and impress your nieces and nephews…use your digital skills to turn their piñata bat into a Light Saber. Oh, the fun you can have with After Effects, a lot of patience and some cool plug-in scripts.
This is my first trip to Iceland. Long night’s travel and a bit cold, but it’s October…and the country is called Iceland, so that should have been a clue to the cold.
