We shot on Tuesday (Dec. 17th Kelly’s segments for the first two weeks of January for TenBefore. We always take off December and the summer time to catch up on things and allow our team AND the audience a little break. I took a few shots of Kelly (she gave me a little wave) as well as Dave (media team) and Sunny (she produces Kelly’s segments and just overall ROCKS!). Sunny has one of the toughest jobs keeping all of Kelly’s content in sync for which campus she is talking too. This year Kelly will be talking a lot more to people who are attending the first time and pointing them to the different environments on campus that they might not know is available. We are also trying to figure out a winter theme.
We shoot in the KidStuf Theater and Dave is the master now of getting a GREAT setup for a great looking TenBefore. If his part doesn’t happen well, then it effects EVERYTHING down the line. If you want a great key, start with a good set and great lighting. He also captures the footage and edits the segments together then passes it to me and I key all the green out and give it to Matt who does his magic and throws it to the Final Cut timeline for the final version. This last fall we decided to go with more templated pieces for easier compositing (Kelly’s Name – Maps – Intro – etc..) It’s not as organic from week to week but it does speed things up a bunch.
