Congratulations to Andre Mckenzie from Toronto who has won the February 2019 PFRE Videographer of the Month Contest! Here is Andre's winning video.
Here's what Andre had to say about his winning video:
I am humbled and very thankful for winning the Videographer of the Month. Thank you to the community and all the judges. This property was nearly 9000 square feet on 95+ acres of land with 3 separate buildings on the property. This was my second time filming the property so I knew what I was in for. The first time I shot it was back in the summer of 2017 for a different listing agent. I filmed it on the Sony a7s ii with a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 mk2 lens, the Zhiyun Crane 1+ and DJI Phanton 4 drone.
I spent 1 hour filming the exterior with the gimbal in -30C weather which was completely cut from the video other than the second to last shot. Go figure! My drone operator spent an hour filming the exterior/land, which was also cut from the video 🙁 For the interiors, I spent approx. 2.5 hours filming the main house (9000SF) and coach house (1500SF) and an additional hour filming close up detail shots (also cut from the video). The video was edited and colour graded in Adobe Premiere CC 2018. The music was changed 3 times; we had 4 re-edits; and I loved every minute of it! I love what I do and I consider myself to be fortunate to shoot luxury real estate. Thank you to Larry and Brandon for hosting these contests and for creating such a great website/community for us all to share and help each other get better. If anyone has questions about shooting video for real estate, feel free to reach out to me. Thanks again guys!
