Dark To Light

My first real attempt at shooting a video where it was pre-planned and shot with a particular look in mind. Everything I've done previously was either cobbled together after the fact or made up on the spot.

The concept is just a simple transition from dark to light, evil to good or possibly even sadness to joy.

All footage was shot on a Nikon D810 and edited in Adobe Premiere with a little bit of After Effects thrown in for the titles.

Dark To Light - Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes footage shot while shooting the video above.

Gypsyfoot Hula Hoop

I edited this together from some footage I shot in tandem with a still shoot I did of hula hoop artist/dancer, Victoria, in her Burning Man wardrobe. You can see the stills in the portrait section of my portfolio.

The Canon DSLR was set up on a tripod just in front and below me as I shot strobed portraits in the studio. You can see the flashing from time to time as I worked with her.

All footage was later processed, edited and roughly arranged in Adobe Prelude. I then imported everything into Adobe Premiere for the final edit where I also added effects and audio.
