Congratulations to Cody Boone from Orange County, CA, who has been voted the October 2020 PFRE Videographer of the Month! Here is Cody's great video.
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.Cody Boone
