Video Processing in a Digital Age – Article for SCN Magazine

This article is the next installment in my series of articles for SCN Magazine and the AVnetwork blog.  The topic for this month was video processing so I decided to cover video processing techniques int he digital age.  The article highlights a few methods of processing video for display walls or collaborative environments that reduces the amount of hardware in the system.  It discusses the virtual and software techniques of processing and transporting video that opens up more versatile ways of designing system while keeping everything networked to reduce infrastructure and help future proof the designs.

The Run Around- Chicago (Official Video)

This is a music video shot for The Run Around. My role in this was Assistant Camera and Sound Designer. The introduction scene needed sound design. I also operated a Canon T2i for half of the shots. I was shooting in 1080p, 24fps, in Cinestyle mode. Cinestyle is a free filter from Canon. It adds a gray look to the video and eliminates harsh shadows. The purpose for this is to flatten out the image for color correction. The shutter speed was 1/50 for most of the shoot. Aperture changed depending on exposure. It was my job to set up the sound system and light show for the video. I used the white audience lights to add a flat look to the stage and then used colored lights to add that show look and feel. The song was performed by the band many times while playing to the recording for sync. Audience and side story shots were filmed separate.
