In this episode we spend time with music industry executives and professional, award winning songwriters talking what it takes to hone your craft and find success - whiter success means.
We are also introduced to Woody Russell. He plays "The Skin I'm In" one of my very favorite performances from the entire five years I spent working on the show. During the shoot I remember being mesmerized by the tone of his sound. Of course, as is always the case, you had to be there - there's just no way to replicate the experience of being in the room - but we did our best.
This is part of a documentary series that I worked on as a photographer, videographer and social media strategist. On the show we went behind the scenes & follow Texas-based singer-songwriters living the Troubadour life.
While I was part of the production team for the entire run of the show, I was just one of a half dozen or so videographers who contributed. A note to my fellow internet content creators: one particularly interesting element of this documentary is the gear I used as one of the videographers on the show. For all the content I currently shoot, I use a variety of enthusiast level cameras from GoPros to Canon Point & Shoots to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. You can see all the current gear I use here.
The primary cameras I used on this shoot were Canon 7D DSLRs. Look at this episode and leave a comment about what you think about the overall production quality of this piece with the 7D and GoPros mixed into shots from the other videographers using professional cinema cameras.
