This is my daughter Savannah's last year as part of the NWD Competition Team. So I created this video for her and for my son Tyler as a remembrance of this awesome competition season. I took video footage of the preparation for every competition and performance and edited it together. Several months of competition, squeezed into a few minutes. All of these kids worked so hard over the year, leading up to a successful National Finals. Congratulations to the KAR National Grand Champions 2014, 1st place overall, in the Production Category!
Lens: 50 mm, 35mm, 11-16mm. Editing: Premiere Pro, After Effects, & Magic Bullet.
Camera: Still waiting to buy my dream camera. For now, I'm still using my Canon t2i, my Droid Ultra cellphone, & some footage was taken by my kids on a strapped GoPro Hero 3+.
Video Notes: Was too lazy to carry the monopod so I had some shakiness that even the warp stabilizer on After Effects couldn't fix. Advice to self: next time, sacrifice and carry the monopod. Plus, I added my very first time lapse (of the MGM hotel). I've been studying the technique for months. Now it's time to have fun with it.
