This is a 4-minute story about a trumpet player with the U.S. Navy Concert Band. The story tries to highlight the two major facets of his job: performing in concerts and providing music for funeral honors.
I shot this with the Canon 7D and used the Zoom H4N for audio. The piece was edited in Adobe Premiere CS5 with Red Giant Magic Bullet Looks 1.4.
This piece won 1st Place in the Documentary category of the 2011 Military Videographer of the Year contest.
I'd like to say thanks to Brandon Almagro for being such a willing and honest subject. I'd also like to thank the Navy Band's public affairs office for all its help.
