This is the Sargis Family 2012 video Christmas Card. This was my most ambitious video production ever because from production to post production and completion was about 1 1/2 days, which is a professional-level turnaround. Furthermore, I had to overcome several major technical glitches including: 1) several family members banging into the audio boxes for the Lavalier wireless microphones, which caused ten audio "blips" (which were very difficult to correct) and b) a lot of Green Screen video "noise". I was able to correct most of this except for a small "halo effect" around my bright red shirt. I could have probably corrected this as well given a lot of extra time, but I was eager to provide this for you on Christmas Eve.
THE KEY TECHNICAL INFORMATION: This was filmed on a Chromokey (Green Screen) background at CAN TV on Saturday, December 22nd from 6 to 9 p.m. Then I spent most of Saturday and 1/3 of Sunday in post production using Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) to do: 1) the "rough cut" (i.e. initial editing and layout) 2) selecting and inputing a "Christmas Lights" video in the background to replace the "Green Screen" 3) correcting most of the audio and video "noise" problems and 4) posting it to Vimeo in order to share this with you!
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY AND SAFE 2013!
