In addition to a growing series of work for Positive Negative magazine, I recently shot and edited a BTS (aka Behind-The-Scenes) video with Lauren Loncar, a fellow student at RIT, during an on-location shoot in Rochester.

The footage was shot with a pretty lightweight kit. Canon 5D Mark II, 17-40 f/4, 35 f/1.4, and 85 f/1.8, paired with a lightweight fluid head tripod. Since we were on location (sans permits or crowd barriers) I wanted to be able to carry everything with me. The tripod served double duty as very stable platform for the telephoto 85mm (which rocks at knocking the background into blur) as well as a monopod for the wider 35mm lens, which has a nice handheld feel.

Edit wise, there wasn't much natural sound of value, so I cut it with a medium-upbeat track that is driving but not too rushed. Use of some color effects and abstract footage overlay was used as a stylistic element, some context to the fashion-y style video.
