I love making documentaries, and I'm grateful for the enjoyment that people seem to get out of them.
But I also have to pay the bills!
Luckily, most of my documentaries are sponsored by supplement companies. That means that they pay for the expense of shooting and editing, in return for me helping them sell their products.
In order to save money, the commercials I make are cobbled together from the documentary footage. We don't have formal "commercial shoots"...at least not yet!
So here are a few of my recent commercials. I keep it fairly simple, no complex motion graphics, just a few clips from my documentary footage, some descriptive voice over, the product shots and music.
Now that my business is growing and I've relocated near New York, I hope to soon be creating more planned out and scripted commercials for some of these products.
