I was the photographer and videographer for the latest play performed by the Salt Lake Acting Company. I shoot the advertising photography for the theater company and I have started recording the archival video for each play or musical. This is the 3rd video that I have recorded for SLAC. And I’ve been the photographer since 2012!
Pinkalicious is based on a book by the same title. And a naughty girl each pink cupcakes, and turns pink! She loves her condition but her family has some concerns.
During the production there are even bubbles that float from the ceiling. The Salt Lake Acting Company gets pretty creative with their stage design and other features. Needless to say, the kids loved the bubbles!
Each actor has multiple acting roles in this play. They might play the dad and a bee for example. Or a doctor and a best friend. It also requires quick costume changes.
This is one of SLAC’s childrens play. Each year one of the plays is for children. The goal is to get children excited for theater. There are a lot of jobs that make theater possible. Actors, executive producers, gaffers, sound engineers, and more.
I won’t be able to share the video of the production, it is for archival purposes only, I can share some of my setup to record the play. I think the previous person recorded the play on one camcorder. I’m going a bit over the top with 4 cameras! Two of them are cameras with interchangable lenses and the quality is amazing. I use 2 GoPro cameras as wide angle backups in case something happens with the main cameras. I love, love, love backup solutions. And it has given me the chance to play with multicam video editing!
I recently invested in an Atomos Ninja V screen recorder. It lets me record video from my big cameras to a hard drive. It’s been a pricy solution, but one that should pay off huge. How do you make a million dollars as a videographer? You start with two million dollars and…
On an unrelated note, this Christmas, I’m hoping to put together a family video for the holidays. I’ll keep taking pictures, but it’ll be fun to be a budding Steven Spielberg. Hooray, video! Yay, photography!
