With a background in photography, I wanted to capture athletes in what would feel like a moving photograph. Without the power and consistency of a strobe light/flash, we used a reflector. I worked with my friend Jim on this project. He has a great understanding of shooting DSLR video. I helped create vision on the angles and worked with the actors to get the vibe we were going for.
In post I desaturated the footage, in many cases relit the subject and atmosphere, added a mosaic for a unique texture/style, and did some typography work.
