CGM Intern Video / by matt wolfe [cc]

Finally finished up shooting and editing the Common Ground Montgomery Summer Resident Mission recruitment video.

 Originally started shooting in June, when the interns first arrived at CGM. Shot the last interview with Bryan Kelly yesterday afternoon (needed a :45 second tag line from him), inserted the interview, graded it, and finished about 1:30 A.M.

The hardest part was finding music, but Kevin King provided that through his contacts, yet it was necessary to find a "hip hop" flavor to the music. Since hip hop doesn't necessarily speak to my soul, that was probably the biggest challenge to the whole video.

I used three different color grades (technically four, but the last two only have a slight exposure difference with a little more focus on natural looking color temperature, but is probably indiscernible when the change occurs. The first minute or so, with all the slow slider shots was graded to appear as if historical. The first hip hop song has a desaturated grade, and then as soon as the interviews start, the final grade begins. It's all pretty quick.
