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.
The series returns, this time with the chilling tale of Pamela Tinsley and her mysterious disappearance at Lake Overholser in OKC.
Great opening line from the latest Cold Case video. Props to Ken Raymond, Tanner Herriott and Paige Dillard – the usual suspects – for creating yet another fasicnating Cold Case, both in print and in video. This remains my favorite of the videos we produce. I wish we had more time to give it more love, to be honest.
April 23, 1986 Kathy Engle vanished from Shepherd Mall in Okalhoma City. Her murder has never been solved.
The Cold Case series is my favorite of all the videos we shoot at OPUBCO. The Oklahoman’s Ken Raymond writes the stories for the print side. Then he goes several steps further by working with the video crew to set up interviews, provide sources and lead interviews. Paige Dillard writes for video and picks out the video and sound bites. Tanner Herriott shoots and edits the video.
Det. Kyle Eastridge from the OKC PD has been tremendously helpful and willing to go on camera for this series. Having that level of insight and expertise on these cases lends to its credibility. And it shows the eagerness of the police to solve these crimes.
Working with Ken is always good, here’s why: he know his material, it’s always a solid story and he’s willing to help make the overall product the best it can be.
I wish we had more time to give this series more attention. The level of effort for these is more than most anything else we do because we usually shoot, write and produce these over a 2 week period instead of just a daily turn.
