Here is our latest video for Urban Planet, shot at the same time as we shot the still campaign.  What a challenge to get both a still campaign and video done in the same day!  Luckily, I have a great team and we pulled it off really well.  We ended up doing over 20 still shots, and this video, all within 8 hours on a painfully humid day in upstate New York.

Again we shot this on two Canon 5d MarkII cameras using a tripod, slider, and Redrock cinema rig.  We left the steadycam at home again. It would have been nice to use on some of the shots, but we had to move so fast we just wouldn’t have the time to switch over to the steadycam anyway.  Our light package was beyond simple, just two Lowel Omni lights and whatever light we could suck out of an overcast day.

I edited this video by myself too, I’m definitely getting more comfortable with that process.  It’s probably the most important skill to learn for any still photographer that is getting into motion.  It’s like putting a puzzle together and can be really enjoyable…. though it’s a long process, something that I have to keep in mind when getting booked on these jobs.  A one day video shoot can turn into one solid week of editing, and that doesn’t leave much room to be working on other jobs.

Check out that kiss at the end of the video…. WOW! That’s Rachelle from NEXT Models, she’s fantastic on set and doesn’t hold anything back! 🙂
