University of Wisconsin Editing Gig Completed!

Back in 2019, Robert was hired to edit a series of videos dealing with depression in young adults. The project was co-sponsored by the University of Wisconsin, the University of New Mexico, and the Health Experiences Research Network.

The goal was to use interview footage provided by the universities to create a 15-20 minute film, plus 6 additional short stand-alone segments. We had meetings and discussions on how the project would look, but nothing could move forward until the raw footage was ready.

Nearly a year had passed before the post-production finally began, and it would take many more months of editing, submitting to committee for review, fine-tuning, and submitting again before the films would be completed. And we're now happy to say, the project is completed! It was a long time coming.

Commercial Project for Moving Company Finished

Robert was hired by videographer Jeff Modjeska to edit two promotional videos for the Madison-based Reynolds Moving & Storage Inc. The company has two divisions: residential moving and heavy machinery moving. We covered both. 

We began shooting interviews with the owners and employees back in January of 2020. We continued into March; then the pandemic arrived. Nonetheless, additional testimonials as well as many more hours of b-roll footage would be shot by Jeff (following social-distancing protocols) over the next several months. The clips were logged and captured, the best sound bites chosen, and the story lines developed for both videos. Robert then wrote the narration scripts and brought on board voice talent Ron Miles to record the voice-over.

Many months later, the client has finally signed off on the latest edits and the project has come to a long-overdue conclusion. Yay!

Sony a7S III Announced!

The long-delayed Sony a7S III digital camera is said to finally start shipping on September 24, 2020. We’ve been waiting a long time for this news, and we’re extremely interested in seeing the reviews and test footage that will begin popping up on YouTube.

If the a7S III is really as good as Sony claims, this could be our next go-to camera for all our filmmaking projects.
