Fun Continuity Surprises

In the "kitchen" scene from No Sleep for Ronni, our two antagonists, Ms. Slovak (Portia Adney) and Dr. Bly (Tim Towne), converse via a video chat. During the editing process, we discovered a minor continuity error; it will hardy be noticed. So for the fun of it, we thought we'd point it out for those who read this post.

Throughout the scene, a cutting board can be seen in the background on the countertop. However, nothing else is supposed to be on top of the cutting board.




Yet in one shot, we can see a book that a crew member forgot to remove from the hot set. Oops.

"Social Media Breakfast" Documentary Completed!

For nearly two months, Robert has been working on a gig with Jeff Modjeska, a short film celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the non-profit group, Social Media Breakfast Madison. The project required two big event shoots, 12 individual interviews, numerous b-roll pickup shots, and lots of digging through historical photos and videos.



After many hours at the computer, Robert finally finished the edit today! Jeff will deliver the final video file to the client and--knock on wood--we'll be done with this one.

UPDATE: You can now view the video on the SMBmad facebook page:

Governor's Mansion Remodel Series Finished!

Over the last 11 months, Robert has been working (on and off) filming and editing the restoration and remodel of the old Governor's Mansion in Madison. The last of the three This-Old-House-style episodes was shot in July. And Robert finally finished the edit this past week.

Today, owners Bob Klebba and David Waugh are holding an open house to show off their newly-completed hotel.  Because of the historic nature of this property, they will be furnishing the videos to the Wisconsin Historical Society to be added to their archives.

Episodes 1-3...

Social Media Breakfast Shoot

Videographer Jeff Modjeska invited Robert to take part in his shoot this morning of the Social Media Breakfast in Madison. The SMB non-profit group has hired us to put together a 10th anniversary video celebrating the growth and success of their organization.

Both of Jeff's Sony cameras were smokin' today (in a good way)!
