Instead of a boring day in the office, I got to help out on a video production. My back kills but it was pretty fun, meet some great people and I learned a thing or two about what goes on behind the scenes. "Van do you want to be a Grip for our video Shoot?" I said sure but I had to google what a Grip was. If you don't know, it is a miscellaneous equipment helper guy; holding lights and what not. I almost didn't bring my camera because I wasn't sure if I would have time to take some candids or if I was even allowed. As always, shoot first ask later is generally a good philosophy. Anyhow a special thanks to Kevin and Mylene of Symphonic Filmworks for inviting me to participate. Maybe one day I will get to be a camera guy with my D800, but until then, here are some stills:
This passed Sunday, I spent a full day participating in this commercial for Battle Reels. It was a long day but it was pretty fun I must say to be an "actor" for a day. Anyhow, the video debuts this Friday at the Digi60 Seconds Spring Screening. When I wasn't infront of the camera, I managed to document a few shots from the day, and the camera got passed around and even used as a prop...so I got some pretty interesting photos. Anyhow here were some of my favourites out of that camera that day. For more photos check out my Facebook Page.
