Congratulations Cody Boone! October 2020 PFRE Videographer of the Month

In: 
Published: 02/11/2020

You can check out all of the October entries here.

Here is what Cody had to say about his video:

Thank you so much! I'm honored! The gear used in this film was a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k, with the Meike 12 and 25mm Cine Prime Lenses, as well as the Laowa 9mm, all stabilized with the Ronin-S. My approach to video for real estate is primarily with storytelling in mind. I rely on music choice heavily to dictate the speed of the video and the mood it brings out. This song was from Epidemic Sounds, under the Post Rock genre, I believe. I want the audience to not become distracted by any big special effects or music, but purely focus on the home being presented. I LOVE using tight detail shots with smooth movement always to keep engagement up, instead of wide, static shots. With the blackmagic, I can get really cool sunbursts out of it, and you can see that evident in the film a couple of times (some which even line up perfectly to the music). If there were any challenges during this filming, it was chasing the light and making sure I can get every shot I need before the sun goes down, which we did successfully.
