As with many of my videos, I get a lot of my inspiration from music, and this video was no exception. I heard the song "Rhapsody" by Immediate Music, and I had to do something with it! Since Grandma's Marathon was coming up (and it's a really big deal here in Duluth), I decided to try and make a sports commercial-like video of people training leading up to the race. All the people in the video ran the half marathon, and all but the last girl in the training portion work at the Northland'sNewsCenter with me. This is probably my favorite video so far because I actually took the time to plan most of it out, and I color graded the images for the first time.

Equipment used:

Canon 60D
Canon 18-135mm 3.5-5.6 IS
Bower 14mm 2.8 Aspherical
Manfrotto 561BHDV monopod
Igus slider w/Manfrotto quick-release mount


Final Cut Pro
Cinema Tools

Special thanks to Leann Wallace, Elayne Crecelius, Chris Axelson, and Samantha Hough for letting me interrupt their workouts in order to shoot this video!
