Each year I work with a production company called “Smith Pixels” to help create a short highlight of an awesome event called FIRST Robotics Competition. This year was one of my favorites. Click here to find out more about FIRST.
Capitol day is an opportunity for home educators to get to know their legislators and stand up for their rights. It’s also a great way for children and youth to become familiar with their state government and know they can make a difference.
Working with Smith Pixels is always a great experience, and things weren’t any different on this fun project we did for Abigail Smith Photography. This video was shot on the Canon 5D Mark II and edited in none other than Final cut Pro. Andrew Smith of Smith Pixels did all the color grading using a few of Red Giant’s Plugins. And the photo animations were done in After Effects.
In the Spring of 2008 I started working on a mini-series called "The Biggest Winner". Playing off of a popular TV show, the objective here however was not to loose weight, but rather to win souls for the Kingdom of God. At the end of 8 episodes the contestants voted to decide which of them had displayed the most Christ-like character.
For this project the budget was very limited, but I worked with what I had. One HD Canon HV20 along with 4 SD Sony Handycams. Then toward the end of each week I would capture all of the footage to our iMac and start editing like a mad man in Apple’s Final Cut Pro to finish a half hour show in a matter of a few days.
