A promotional piece for the Center For Performing Arts' three unique venues that gives the audience a taste of the experience attending an event at the Center.
During my internship with the Center For Performing Arts, I was assigned a project to create an updated version of their Audience Point-of-View (POV) video. The old video was outdated and highlighted more about downtown Carmel than the three unique venues at the Center. The Center desired an updated deliverable that focused on their theater spaces.
After receiving the assignment, I began by creating rough storyboards. I took photos on my camera and drew rough figures in Photoshop to block out each scene. I collaborated with the Marketing team to schedule talent and create a filming schedule. Filming happened over the course of a single day with me acting as director and videographer.
The initial plan for the video included me filming the Tarkington and Studio Theater spaces, however, the COVID-19 pandemic caused a shutdown. Due to this, I was unable to do additional filming. I used the footage I had already acquired during Palladium filming and recycled footage from the outdated video for the final deliverable.
Music was selected by the Marketing department.
During this shoot, I worked with several people who had not taken film direction before. I needed to work quickly and efficiently to make sure everyone understood their role in each scene. My favorite part of the final deliverable is the long tracking shot where the camera moves from left to right then up and back left to show the grandeur of the Palladium.
Fun fact, the music for this video is called "Potato Deal"
