Retirement Communities and Evangelical Churches for the NY Times

Posted on July 1, 2013

Earlier this year I co-produced two video pieces for the New York Times. The first was on retirement communities in South Florida that are seeing an increase in baby boomers moving in but were still working. They didn’t want to retire, it was just a good real estate deal and when they do end up retiring they’re already set up.

The other video is on an Evangelical church in Central Florida that is in support of immigration reform.

Both were shot with the Panasonic GH3. For the retirement video, some areas were a little sensitive to larger cameras. So I shot some parts with the FiLMiC Pro app on the iPhone. Turned out great. I kept the subject mic’d, had the receiver and sound recorder in my pocket. Footage sync’d up great.

For the driving shots I used a suction cup camera mount stuck on the inside of a partially lowered window, pointing out.
