Stock Producer

During the summer I did a few things that were pretty cool.  First was I took an Avid training course and passed with flying colors.  So now I am an Avid Certified Editor.  Really awesome, and that led to another opportunity.  A local media company has recently acquired the domain name for stockfootage.com and was looking for people they could train to produce and polish assets for them.  They held a cooperative agreement with UVU and was able to train in a room at the college.  They only accepted 14 people, of which I was one of them.

It was a really great training and I learned a lot of valuable things, but I’m under an NDA and can’t you about them.  Not to worry though as I have also become a stock producer for them.  Things we learned were workflow, after effects procedures, editing procedures, time remapping, cameras, and whole bunch of other information.

Below is a demo reel I edited for them, it is slow motion, shot on the phantom camera, and I assisted in the creation of 8 clips that you will see in it.

Awesome Videos I Like part 2

So here I am back for another round of awesome videos.  These are really cool and and were fun for me to watch, Just love ’em, from timelapse to artsy to special FX each one is unique and well worth your time.  As usual a little commentary after each vid, and once again starting with a timpelapse.

One shot I just don’t know how he got, the one where the tree in the middle is rotating but the background is stationary. How? I loved the shots, the music was fitting as well.  I just can’t figure out for the life of me how he got that one shot.

Férias no Brasil, all I have to say to this is “Tudo Bacana.” This was shot on a Canon Rebel T2i with the underwater shots being taken from a GoProHD camera.  Just a guy filming his vacation but he got such great shots and edited in such a manner that this looks like it could be a travel commercial. I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets approached by a Brazilian travel agency for a TV spot.

Ever wonder how lenses were made and why they’re sooooo expensive? Well now you know the answer to both those questions.  Really amazing to see how they do everything.

I learn new things about Cape Verde everyday and this to me was a shocker. This here is for a documentary being made on the effects of international fishing boats in Cape Verdean waters.  Because the fish are rapidly depleting a village is forced to sell the sand on their beach so that they may survive, and there once beautiful beach is no longer there but is nothing but mounds of rocks.

This was made to show off the editing power of Red Giant’s new Magic Bullet suite, third party plugins for video editing software. And I must say it looks pretty suite… I mean sweet.  I know if I had the cash that I would invest in these tools, but alas a poor college student can’t have everything can he.

Awesome Videos I Like

This week is shaping up to be quite a long one, so what better way to relax than watching some cool videos? A short commentary after each one.

I’ve always had a thing for timelapses and with the new cameras we have it is becoming increasingly easier to make ones like this.

Aaaahhhh, love. Complicated stop motion brings out our emotions so effortlessly and makes us feel great and want to be better.

Man, this Cape Verde video gives me sodade. Sodade = a yearning or longing for something special.

This video was filmed on the same type of camera that I have, the Canon Rebel T2i. Man it’s amazing what you can make on the gear that is available to everyone these days. This is just a snip of a 30 minute feature.

Sorry about no HD on that one.  But since it has Utah in the title and I’m from Utah it had to be great, haha. No, but it really does have a nice little story to it.

And finishing up with another time lapse. I could never tire of these things, they are just to visually appealing, too beautiful.  I hope you all enjoyed this here round of videos. Maybe in the future I’ll make this a regular thing of posting awesome videos like these.
