Archives For MKII

Here is a highlight reel that was shot and edited in 5 days to show the events from the week long EntreLeadership conference held in Tucson, AZ. This conference is produced by Dave Ramsey’s company, The Lampo Group.

We shot everything on 5D MkII, 60D and GoPro cameras. We used a mix of Canon L series zoom lenses, Zeiss 50 1.4 ZE and a Tamron 17-50 2.8. We also used the Kessler Stealth slider.

Thanks to Joel Hood for being the 2nd shooter during the week, couldn’t have done this without him!

- From Anita’s website:

Anita Renfroe’s brand new DVD “Big Ol Sweet Iced Tea” is making people laugh with her off-the-wall insights, music and her trademark pop culture parodies. Filmed in her hometown of Atlanta, GA before a sold out crowd, “Big Ol Sweet Iced Tea” releases summer 2010.

Renfroe, who some have described as “this generation’s Erma Bombeck” has been a featured comedian on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and has filmed a sitcom pilot for Sony/ABC co-starring Ryan Stiles and the late Dixie Carter. In addition to “Good Morning America,” Renfroe’s talent has been embraced by such top media outlets as “Dr.Phil,” CBS’s “The Early Show,” Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” XM Satellite Radio Network’s “Oprah & Friends,”Inside Edition,” The Gospel Music Channel and others.

We were invited to capture some of the happenings at Nashville Lifestyles Magazine’s annual Music in the City event. Here is the video we created for them to feature on their website.
