|Naples, FL Sky Line|
My back has been totally blown out for the last couple of days. Makes it very difficult to function, when you can’t stand up or sit down. Flat was my only comfy angle. Hopefully I’ll have some cool stuff to post about a new show, tomorrow
Who would have ever thought that doing sub-titles would become such a huge business. I mean that 80-90% of all programs must be captioned. At a cost of around $300-$1200 per half hour. It’s a phenomenal tool for the people who use the service, but it costs programmers MILLIONS of dollars to create. Think about it.
So… Today I got a quick prompter job with a couple friends, Darren Dyer and Rob Poole.
Let me explain how a prompter job works. — remember when the President got messed up when the TelePrompTer glitched and he was stopped live on tv.
Yes that’s what I did tonight. The client was a corporate client who I can’t divulge. But we were doing a promo piece with the text written out.
These jobs are actually fun to do as I get to interact with everyone. As opposed to other roles where it can get kinda boring.
So… Take a word doc, and follow a person reading the words on tv. If you roll it too fast, they sound rushed. If you roll it too slow, they sound drawn out. Your job as a prompter op, make them sound natural.
That’s it.. Any questions?
Uh.. because almost 500 million have smart phones. And 500 million people with mobile connectivity aren’t using the traditional models. Plus Facebook has 500 million members. I mean come on.. I’m sure you can figure a way to use this tool to get more people in your door or can you?
Data for those of you to check out.
Explanation of what means what
Today over 500 slick autos were here in Naples…. Here are a few pics of the day.
I ran into a production buddy of Rodney Yergan. He does a show called restoration time. Restoration Time TV imagine the restoration done on these cars… He parallels that to people and there lives… It’s good stuff.
I guess on a side note, when you look at the attention to detail on these cars, you understand why the cost so much. Same goes for the most part with creating media. People always say why does it cost so much? Because the difference is in the details and the final polish. Which costs more if you really want the project to shine. Otherwise, it’ll be just ok.

|Marcus Jansen “A Painters Allegory”|
Marcus Jansen’s project was one that we worked with a bunch of different people and I wound up directing the final project. The team consisted of Eric Raddatz,(producer) Flip Minott,(Director or Photography) Hank Sorrick (Post Supervisor) and Myself -Edward Clay (Director). Plus a couple others whose names I don’t have right here. Marcus is an awesome painter who has done a ton of really cool work. Here is a link to his website and a link to his facebook page. His art jumps off the canvas and really makes a statement. As for the video itself, Shot on the 5D, Posted on Adobe Premiere, Graphics in After Effects. I really thought the final piece was awesome and told a great story… You know you want to see a link,
Here is a quick couple of photos from a recent shoot I was on in Scottsdale Arizona, I was working at the Hyatt Regency on a Corp Video Shoot. Here are a couple shots I took. It was truly an amazing place.
