Here are Jacob and Jamie McNeil's comments on their winning video:

This one was pretty fun and was shot over two days. All the aerials were done from a chopper with doors off. Hand held and stabilized in post. There are some crane shots in there as well just to help add to the mix of shots.

Because the home was pretty unique we wanted to showcase the owners  passion for the home. It needed to be more than a property video to try and capture the feeling of the property.

Interview with the home owner was pretty straight forward. Two lights were used and a reflector.

  1. Very well done winning video, however wasn't sharp when watching on my Note 3.

    Gotta learn to make videos. The home here is absolutely beautiful (as well as the video).

  2. Congrats! Inspiring work. A well told story and technically perfect. I'm curious which camera and editing suite you're working with.??
