The back story
About a year ago my good friend Nate Heck asked for some help filming a pilot episode for a children’s art education television show titled: Artrageous with Nate. I had recently got my brand new Canon 7D and was excited to try out the video capabilities of the 7D. So that is what we did! We rented a bunch of gear from borrowlenses.com (lenses, fluid tripod head, Merlin Steadicam <– a giant pain to set up, audio equipment, etc) and filmed 90% of the episode on one long weekend (3 days). Over two more evenings we wrapped up with a few more shots in front of the green screen and then it went to post production.
Despite several very long days of hard work, making episode 1 was a lot of fun! So much fun, that we are at it again…
