Made in Connecticut

The video clip below is a project I participated with in early January 2008. I did the filming for the opening company (RAM) and the last company (RealTraps) but did not do the other companies inbetween (e.g., Painting, Fiberglass) but my camera was used for all the shooting.

Ethan Winer did the editing, music, narration, etc and he is the co-founder of RealTraps – the company featured here in this video.

Along the way, Mark Weiss provided some technical consulting and I learned several things from Mark including: a) don’t shoot interviews from low angle up (as I did with the RAM tour) as it creates an authority “top down” kind of interview energy; b) always use a tripod for shooting long form shots (e.g., when panning a 20,000 sq foot facility); c) keep tromboning to a minimum (this is the zooming in and out with the lens); d) when assembling clips in post, after a shot zooms in, then make a quick clean cut to another shot; plus several other tips on balancing audio, colors, and slides (stills) – enjoy!
