Storage Village Commercial

A friend approached me asking to shoot a commercial for the company he works for, Storage Village. They wanted a 30 second spot to show on the web and advertise their various locations. It was a fun shoot and the ones who helped were nothing but enthusiastic. Everyone had a good attitude and it really contributed to the flow of the shoot. Continue reading

Azden SGM – 1X and Zoom H4n Mic Test

Everyone talks about how the Rode Mic is the standard for HDSLR audio, but there is one big problem for me; it is a stereo microphone.

Shoot in CT

I spent a couple days this week in Conneticut with Dave Ogden for a MetaMedia shoot. I was equipped with my 7D, Indirailsystem Railspro, Zacuto z-finder, Sigma 30mm, Nikkor 85mm, Zoom h4n, and a Sony lav mic. We rented a Nikkor 135mm, Canon 16-35mm L, and panasonic monitor kit from Visual Edge. Video and audio were recorded with SanDisk cards. Until one of them fails me, I won’t use anything else.  Everything was transported using Pelican cases (minus the rig which was in a duffle bag). I can’t emphasize how awesome these cases are. Definitely worth the extra money. Continue reading

Instead of Pictures, How About I Make a Video?
