Transform :: A short film for ScottKelby.com
I was recently asked to do a guest blog post on Scott Kelby’s site. I had free reign to talk about anything I wanted to talk about. I took it as an opportunity to get off my arse and make something that was new and fresh for me. I decided I would do a video. I decided to do this for my wife, Meg, because she is always inspiring me to go beyond the normal stuff I create. She’s always pushing me. Sometimes it sucks because she knows just what buttons to push in me to make me think about things a bit deeper. So I took all of her button pushing and went out and made something of it.
Even if I had the money for a new 5d Mark II you can’t find one anywhere right now. So I decided I needed to keep it on the lo-fi, lo-budget flavor. I shot it with The Flip Mino HD. I even modified this little thing to give me a wide angle and telephoto lens. I’ll blog on that later.
EDIT – I’ve now posted the video above, as you can plainly see. I had no idea how much this would impact all of you! There have been over 10,000 views of the video in the first 24 hours. I’m glad that something I struggle with is not something I struggle with alone.
Coming up later today… (2/19/09) – A blog post about how I hacked my Flip Mino HD camera and a free download of Meghan’s song that is in the video. You can find her on iTunes under “Meghan Arias and Meghan Coffee”. This track in the video though has not been released on an album.* We’ll have it up soon for you!
*Update you can buy it on iTunes now! You can find it here: Window
