Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Crafting the DSLR project idea, part of Creative DSLR Video Techniques.
…I've got this thing that I want to shoot.…A friend of mine named, Steven Carran, who is a very gifted actor…and theatrical improviser is preparing a solo…performance for a theater in northern California.…So, my idea is to create a promo video that…he can put on his website to help promote the show.…I'm seeing it as a roughly three minute video; that would include…an interview with him, as well as shots of him rehearsing and,…ideally, footage of what the final show would look like.…Now, Stephen has a fairly loyal base of fans and…his producers have a nice big mailing list that they…can use to promote the show, so I know that…my audience already has some idea of who he is.…
And what they might be able to expect from a show put on by him.…They know that he can be extremely funny and that he's a great physical comedian.…In this piece I'll want them to know that they'll get to see those sides…of him, the ones that they already know and expect.…Those bits should also intrigue viewers who don't know who he is.…
