A promotional video for the Child and Adult music class at the Center for Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana.
During my internship with the Center For Performing Arts, I was assigned a project to produce a promotional video for the Child & Adult music class. The Marketing department desired a 2-3 minute video with music and diegetic sound to promote the music class to the local community.
The first step in producing this project was to attend a session of the class to gather footage. I worked with the marketing and education departments to get talent releases and permission to film the adults and minors attending the class. Some of the children were camera shy, while others were enthralled with my equipment. This made getting natural-looking footage a challenge.
During post-production, the marketing department provided text copy for use in the final deliverable.
This shoot required dexterity. I found myself laying on the floor and standing on chairs to get the right angles of the class. My favorite shots are the ones with bubbles and the one of the little girl laughing at the end of the video. I enjoyed being able to combine background music with diegetic sound in the final deliverable.
