Video under pressure!

I had a great experience this week!

Iron Sport Gym was celebrating its 10th anniversary with a four event strongman competition and I offered to videotape it. Iron Sport is owned by my cousin Steve Pulcinella, an accomplished strength athlete in his own right.

My objective with this video was to test myself and see how fast I could produce a tightly edited, exciting tribute to the day. The contest was on Sunday morning May 3rd. I had one camera on a tripod which I often left run by itself while I shot another angle of the action with a hand held camera.

I shot 3 1/2 hours of footage, wrote and recorded the voiceover myself and I had the first draft uploaded by Wednesday morning! Not too shabby!

Steve watched the video and suggested a few changes. I had the new version re-posted by Friday morning. It may not be the most polished thing I've ever done but it's good to know that I can turn around a nice, crisp piece in a TV news style in a reasonable amount of time.

Check it out and don't be afraid to make suggestions if you think it could be better.
