SF Solar Map web intro

I was really happy with this because of the production backstory.
This final product is a good example of making chicken salad out of chicken s#^&. And doing it for the same cost as a static talking head shot.
This is a web-streaming only video, thus the locked-down shots.
Shoot at 9:15am, edit at 1pm, compressed and emailed at 5pm.
A satisfying day.

favorite "Celebrate Heritage" video

I liked producing this segment the most from SFGTV's co-production of "Celebrate Heritage, Celebrate Unity".
The access to what we used to call "home video" is what holds it together. I added the red bars so I could have some wiggle room on re-centering shots that weren't framed quite right.
It wasn't that bad to begin with, though. Each generation of users is becoming more instinctually adept at working with video. 50 or 60 years of constant exposure to TV might do that to a culture.
