We decided I would video all the speeches at the end of the race, then use b-roll footage of the race, family events, and signage of the event. There will be two videos, one as a gift to the main speaker Brother James Kelly of Mount Saint Joseph High School and a more traditional 3-minute web video showing the importance of the race to people surviving and fighting cancer.
The Creative Director and I had two pre-race meetings to discuss day-of logistics and develop a workable shot list. These were vital to make sure we had enough material for both videos. It was a truly collaborative effort and even though I was the only shooter, I enjoy working with the client to fit my vision to their need.
Day of the race equipment consisted of:
- Canon 7D
- 16 GB of SanDisk Extreme Cards
- IndiSYSTEM ULTRA Compact Video Rig
- Azden Shotgun XLR Mic
- Zoom H4N Audio Recorder
