Title: "We Are" Spot
Post by: md on February 15, 2010, 05:08:00 PM
Hey guys, check out a recent commercial I directed for the city of Rochester's Democrat and Chronicle Newspaper.  We shot it on a 5d/7d during a 3 day shooting schedule.

Good one, liked it a lot! I knew people that live in Rochester. It makes me wanna stalk them more after watching this.

Just kidding... they don't live in Rochester!

to think as a little boy I would one day grow and up and induce stalking for my man mogwai has really made the journey come full circle ;)

We shot with the 5d/7d in and around Rochester and had a game plan to hit up all the local spots everyone knows and loves.  I can't speak enough about the versatility of the 5d.  Its a great little camera and I recently saw a clip where they were using it in primetime tv, numb3rs and 24, I believe.  Appreciate the comments though, it was fun to make.

Quote from: email from my aunt
It's funny you should send this link to me tonight.  About three minutes ago, I watched it on YouTube when someone ... sent it to me because our friend Dennis (employee at D&C) is the first face seen in the video!  Cool!
