Getting to work on a new project, be it a live show or video, always fills me with anticipation. Anticipation of what it will become, how it will evolve. Since one of the things I do is work with clients on creating a concept and developing their media image, each video is its own unique endeavor. Transforming a collection of video footage and show clips into a concise, high energy marketing tool does take careful planning and attention. And I never quite know what each video will become until I start working on it. But as they say, good things are worth waiting for.
We have just completed a new promo video for Fire Performer & Illusionist Antonio Restivo. Antonio had accumulated a lot of footage over the past few years and was ready for a new promo video. If you have seen Antonio you know he has an iconic look, a fitting character for a fire performer. I knew I wanted the video to capture that look as well as highlight many of his accolades. In addition, being able to use the element of fire for this video opened up a lot of possibilities visually. To be consistent with Antonio’s branding, I animated the graphic files from his logo and website in the promo video and the DVD menu.
Take a look at our latest creation:
On another note, as some of you may know one of my earliest creative endeavors with film making was making conceptual video art. For those interested in seeing some of my video art, you can now view them on my website. Here is a direct link to the portfolio: http://www.redspadeentertainment.com/videoproductions/video-art/
