Here’s a testimonial video I shot for a trade school. My roles were that of DP and editor.
The client/director here had a general idea of what they wanted but this piece was not scripted or story-boarded. We relied on organic capture, authentic interviews, and on-set discoveries to tell the story.
I’m especially proud of how the B-Roll in this piece visually shows how the skill sets of Tyler working on the farm carried over to his newfound skill sets of working on the robots. This piece is a great example of how scheduling interviews prior to B-Roll will aid the overall story when shooting unscripted material like testimonials. Tyler’s story during the interview gave us ideas that impacted our shot selection when we shot B-Roll after. If we did it in reverse, the B-Roll would have been more generic and far less in tune with his story.
