In June, I worked with Amex to create four short social media videos.
My favourite rewards program is Amex, because it earns the highest points per $1, and they have the most airline partners leading to maximum flexibility to fly flat. ✈️ 🛌. The video shoot was my first with a professional video production of a small team and it was interesting to see the great efforts behind capturing the right scene.
In all my amateur videos, it's off the cuff from my knowledge and I don't even bother to apply a filter. Fast and easy suits me.
In my TV work, it's either live to air 😬, or it's just a couple of takes - so again it's fast and just draws on what you think to say naturally.
But in recording a professional video we break down each scene and somehow you forget how to speak the lines in clear English, or you forget the line. Even simple sentences.
But all up it was good fun.
It took two full days, and I had the easy job. The others in the team had to constantly adjust camera angles, shoot multiple takes, consider the foreground, the background, review and then post edit.
I'll stick with my spreadsheets and giving advice on how to use points smarter and helping them fly better as my day job.
