I just had the pleasure of shooting this dance video with Jordan Malixi - and I am SO excited about this one. Normally when I shoot these dance videos - it's all about coverage and editing. I shoot the choreography from as many dynamic angles as I can and get the most high-impact shots that I can, and then I stack up all the takes in Adobe Premiere and build from there. This shoot, however, was different. On this video, we shot for quality over quantity, and always rolled camera knowing exactly where the shot would be placed in the final edit. You know, like grown-ups do. It was a LEVEL-UP experience!
Major props to Jordan Malixi on this. The whole sequence in the jungle gym was invented on the spot thanks to Jordan's Jackie-Chan-style ability to improvise within his environment. It was a blast to work with someone with that amount of creativity.
This video turned out as well as it did because of how much thought was put into in advance AND how much thought was put into it on the spot.
I hope I can keep this momentum going!
