8/10 Edit for Frontier: It was great to step in on an edit with Frontier and support their in-house training group. Quick turn around was key and we delivered.
8/13 Ken Burns/ Geoffrey Ward tribute: This one went right up to the wire. Our approach kept changing as we kept refining the tribute and balancing a voiced over scripted perspective with a “Greatest Hits” traditional tribute. The results were well received by the sold out audience and the guests of honor. We even had a moment to give Ken and Geoffrey a copy of the tribute. One of our moments of zen: doing the “Ken Burns Effect” on a photo of Ken Burns.
8/23 University of Rochester audio work
8/21 Shot a video segment for the Rochester comedy group EstroFest (www.estrofestlaughs.com). This was a two-camera shoot done during business hours at Hegedorns Supermarket in Webster. The shoot was frequently interrupted by both curious shoppers, as well as those that just needed whatever items we were in front of at the time. It was fun to direct some very talented local actors (and one of their moms).
8/27 Shot the first annual Rochester Fur Ball (www.rochesterfurball.com) at the Strathallen Hotel. The Fur Ball is a black tie gala that dog owners can bring their pets to. Many of the dogs were as coiffed and dressed up as their owners were. There was a buffet for the pets (as well as the humans) a dog fashion show featuring designers from around the country. Proceeds from the event went to the Animal Service League, the Verona Street Animal Society, and the Monroe County Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Many thanks to the sponsors of the event, as well as Michelle from Luminaria Photography (www.luminariaphotography.com) for her help.
