This was an unanticipated podcast. I have been working on a project for a couple of days now and honestly it should already be done. I have been cutting, watching, then deleting things a lot. I am trying to get through this one before I go out of town again and it just doesn't seem like it is going to happen. So on this episode I sit down and talk through my process of when this happens. I am not sure if this will help anyone but i did it anyway so get over it. Enjoy
Got my buddy Jim from 8th and Tine in the office today going over some editing practices and workflow. Jim is fairly new to the filming/editing game but he is wanting to elevate his knowledge and I am hoping I can help him even if its just a little bit. We talk about 8th and Tine and about his hunting plans for the fall but most importantly we talk about what he learned and how you can apply it to your next edit.
On this episode we are going to talk to one of the guys I met early on in my professional career. Tony Kalil is the owner of Kalil Media based out of Springfield, MO and he is a super good dude and even more creative. I love getting guys like Tony on the podcast because they always have a cool perspective and make me think more about this profession and why it is we do it. Tony is one of the best around and has some awesome project going. Hope you like what he has to say!
Just got home from a 16 day turkey tour road trip and I am getting some time to move some footage around and record a podcast. This is one I have been wanting to do for a while. I have went through a ton of gear in the last few years and there is some of it that has stuck out to me as being the best of the best. I am going to go over the stuff I use every day and trust. Let me know if you think I forgot anything or if there is something you want me to talk more about next time. Enjoy
I put a lot of miles on my Tundra every year. I love my truck. I love having my stuff and my gear. Knowing where everything is, knowing what I have with me and knowing its dependable and I can make moves at the drop of a hat is worth it to me. On this episode I got into some detail on why I drive everywhere as well as try and stay awake on a really long drive through Houston, Texas.
Walt Gabbard is a good friend of mine and an industry veteran. This dude has been around the block a couple of time. He has seen the changes that this industry is undergone over the last 10 years and is in the trenches right now creating some of the best content out there for Mossy Oak's new digital platforms such as "Obsessed" and "Impulse". Walt will be a familiar voice to some of you that have seen some of their latest work being as he is the voice over talent on the series as well. Being a Kentucky boy turkey's and spring hold a special place in his heart and on this episode we get his take on filming turkeys, set ups, and the state of the industry. This is a good one.
While listening to the "Cleared Hot" Podcast put on by Andy Stumpf he talked about DO THE HARD THING. He was talking in terms of life and how doing the hard things in life are always the better way to success and being an example. I wanted to talk about the same subject but in terms of Creating Content and doing what we do. There are tons of shortcuts you can take in this line of work but none will get you the result you are wanting. Generally by cutting corners you or more importantly your client isn't going to be happy. Do it right the first time.
Well the turkey tour for me is about to begin, well I guess it already has. I just got back from South Florida for the opener with Darrell Madden and Chris Irwin documenting Darrell's 38th and 39th Grand Slam start. We ran into a few hiccups since Darrell has never filmed any of his hunts so I wanted to use this podcast to go over how to properly set up for filming turkeys for the footage and not the kill. These are two very different things and Darrell soon learned that. Filming a turkey and getting the right footage for a show or film is a lot more involved than just getting one in close enough to kill with a shotgun. There is a process in which you must follow and be committed to or its not going to get you what you are wanting or needing. The set up needs to be the main goal, not just killing a bird. Commit to getting epic footage and dont take anything less. Enjoy.
Just got finished with a shoot in South Florida where I was filming some content for Mossberg shotguns and my buddy Chris Irwin was running the still camera. It was so good to get to be in camp with him again and get to work together on another project now that both of us are out on our own and getting to do what we love more and more. We finally got a little break the last night before we drove home to sit down and get a little more in depth on photography. I got to watch Chris work a lot on this trip and see what makes him tick. I wanted to pick his brain and try and understand his process, how he sees things as well as what he feels like makes a good image. Enjoy!
