On Wednesday, I had the opportunity to help shoot two videos for a well-known local poet, Levi the Poet. Before the shoot I had heard of him, but hadn’t really heard any of his work. I had no idea what to expect, so at first, I was a little thrown off by his style and delivery. However after listening to him finish his second take, I was completely sold. His message is gritty but awesome, and his raw and unapologetic approach are so refreshing in the politically correct world of today. I’m so glad that I have the chance to help Levi out in the production of these videos.
Since Wednesday I’ve put many hours in the editing room, and it’s paid off in the form of the quickest video turnaround I’ve ever pumped out: one day for a 6-minute video. It’s still a rough cut though, and will be headed for color grading, motion graphics, and final sound equalizing. That job will go to two other very cool guys I met, Scott Wells and Asher Barrett. The video is scheduled to be finished sometime next week, so in the meanwhile enjoy a couple iphone pics from the shoot and the edit:
They both turned out pretty well I think, and it’s awesome because they already have a combined 60,000+ views in just a few weeks. Glad I could help out Levi..
