Tanner Herriott forwarded me this video earlier today. It’s a church vid promoting a series, this one called “Moments.”
What’s interesting, at least to me, is how it was shot. The subjects appear on screen and on the screen behind them. And it appears to be projected against a flowing curtain, which creates a cool effect.
Tanner is editing our next Cold Case Oklahoma video – read more from Ken Raymond’s blog on our Cold Case stuff, it’s really good. Ken and Tanner and Paige do a great job with the Cold Case series, tying the video to the print while each telling the story in its own manner. Tanner is using a reverse image to illustrate the timeline in this case. He lit a piece of paper then reversed the image creating a film effect that’s far more compelling than the typical Final Cut Pro lower third.
And yes, this post somehow went from church to murder.
We managed to crank out 13 videos today from the OPUBCO Studios crew, including nine in the studio. Topics ranged from sports (go figure) to politics to energy. Our energy segment is doing very well in video traffic. That surprises me. Perhaps it’s a demo that’s been untapped. It routinely ranks in our top five or top ten of videos each day. Usually that’s reserved for sports and breaking news.
And bull elk fights.
Seriously, the bull elk video that was submitted by someone back in January ranked among our highest viewed video for months.
Tomorrow we’ll tackle wake boarding at the Oklahoma River. Tanner has already conquered this once. And we’ll cover the NBA team name being unveiled, announced and promoted. That’s a pretty big deal. I think Angi is getting a hair cut too. And somewhere in there we’ll interview former mayor Kirk Humphreys for an upcoming video/print piece.
One of several videos we produced today in the OPUBCO Studios, Mike Sherman and Mike Baldwin talked about tomorrow’s press conference to announce – officially – the team name of the OKC NBA franchise.
