I love projects that challenge me to combine found stock footage with new material that I create to make a seamless video. I’m proud of how this one came together and would love to hear guesses of which shots in this video are licensed vs created. 🙂
There are three shots in this video in which I both operated camera (including pulling focus) and acted, which was pretty exciting. For example, in the shot of a guy in a blue suit (me) picking up his drink on the way to work, I was hiding the follow focus device in my bag so I could adjust the focus as the camera moved along a pre-programed slider move towards the cup. It may not seem that complicated, but trying to look natural on camera while manipulating the camera is no small feat!
