Last night I took the 5D home to play with the settings and learned a little more about how to use it. In the morning I prepared for the shoot with Trails 2000 at Chapman Hill. Trails 2000 is trying to get a grant to get a new pump track on Chapman Hill and they have to submit a video to get the grant, so that is why they contacted me. They are in a competition right now and the video that gets the most likes wins the grant. The theme of this video has a western theme. Then the story has a bunch of pro cyclists from Durango come up to Chapman then get sad because there is no pump track.
It was cool because I got to work with Gordon who is interning at Trails 2000 and we work very well together. It was pretty stressful on my part because this was the first time I was in charge of a client and I didn’t want to mess anything up. Then after a shooting with 15 people and conducting interviews I raced back to the station to make sure all my footage was good. Also I had some pressure because everything is due by tomorrow morning.
After hurriedly editing and syncing the sound everything turned out really good, and it was very rewarding in the end.
