I have never filmed a music video before, so I offered to practice on my super talented guitarist friend, Paweł Sawicki. We shot several scenes throughout Kraków of him playing Twilight, by Kotaro Oshio. I used a camera mounted external microphone to pick up the audio and in post production, synced the clips with Paweł’s studio recording. Enjoy!
I never thought that one day I would be in Poland filming a Lamborghini, but yet it happened. Since living in Poland, I have been partnering up with a friend, Jacek Sopotnicki, on some video projects here in Kraków. We received a call a couple of weeks ago from another mutual friend and manger at Hotel Witek asking if we could create a short film to promote his hotel as well as some special guests. The auto tuning team of Suhorovsky Design and their exotic cars, including a beautiful Lamborghini Gallardo, were in town for the Kraków Moto Show. What better place to stay than Hotel Witek!
Despite the challenges of a last minute shoot and filming outside in direct sunlight in the middle of the day, we made it work and had a great time.
We just finished editing a couple of videos that I shot while we were back in the US last month. They were pretty interesting as we were able to get a glimpse inside of a chemical laboratory and manufacturing facility, Thor Chemicals, as well as another company, IN USA, that makes electronic components to measure and monitor ozone levels. The purpose of the videos was to highlight those two companies as well as the partnership they have with their Microsoft accounting software providers, CAL Business Solutions and Altico Advisors.
I finally got around to editing some footage from our honey harvest back in September. It was a beautiful morning, but we (meaning my wife and our friend Josh) had to work quickly to remove and clean the frames and make it to our extraction appointment on time. It’s much easier to bring the frames to a place that already has all the equipment and knows what they are doing. Plus, they do all the cleanup.
We brought them the frames and they cut off the capped combs and spun out the honey for us. We ended up with about 65 pounds of honey which we took home and bottled ourselves. The honey tasted a little different this year, kind of like apricot and pumpkin. Who knows were those bees had been!
Hope you enjoy this short video!
I recently finished a new video for Better Rest Solutions. This one highlights the importance of keeping our sinuses free of germs and how this is harder for people who suffer from sleep apnea and need to use a CPAP mask at night. Their product called SoClean easily and effectively disinfects CPAP equipment.
On this video, we utilized some green screen techniques as well as some animation. This was also the first time I got to try out the video capabilities of my new Nikon D600.
Make sure to select the HD option!
A few weeks back I posted some behind the scenes photos on the latest video I was working on for CAL Business Solutions. They wanted a case study video on one of their clients, Amax Incorporated. Here is the finished film.
I’m currently in the editing stages of a new video about a distributing company who deals exclusively with Stanley Bostitch office products. They had a nice product display rack with loads of colored staplers which looked great as a backdrop for the interviews. Here’s a screen grab from the video and a behind the scenes shot.
Drink is probably the best place in Boston for hand crafted cocktails. With no signage of any kind outside, you would not even notice it existed without knowing the address, 348 Congress St., Boston, MA. Concrete and metal make up the simple, but classy interior. The bartenders here are very skilled and love what they do. I liked how they were eager to explain the drinks and the process and help out with a cocktail choice. This is a great place to get something out of the ordinary, something you would not be able to easily duplicate at home. I shot a few video clips while sitting at the bar.
