This is the first of many videos I will be posting from the 5Takes series. This is a vlog, intended for quick turn and online only. This is not a finished, polished for air clip. As soon as the series airs, I will post material from there.
In this business, networks execs often ask to screen a rough cut of a work in progress. You have to be responsive to their demands, as they are paying the bill, but I am always hesitant to do so. Even if they say “I am used to seeing rough cuts”, they are not.
So I post this first one with a caveat: This is not for on air broadcast. It is supposed to be fast and rough.
When you go to the website, you will see lots of other vlogs. Most of these were made by our travellers, people who have never held a camera before. If you watch them, please bear that in mind.
If you want to see technical perfection, go here for now. More to come.
