Hi all

this may be a strange question, but i have been asked to shoot a short promo for my dojo.
And now i was wondering has anyone else shot in a dojo before?
if so what kind of shots did you do?
i really want to shoot as much on steadi as possible but would like to know if anyone had cool ideas for some shots?

Basically its just gonna be me and my assistant so any help would be appreciated

regards
rich

I "directed"/shot this in 15 minutes(that was all the time we had with the talent) with 2 5Ds and a 7d along with two lowel id lights. It was really just a camera test but I would have liked to use the steadicam more. Incorporate stuff like this with some interviews or vo and you got a promo.

Hi Richard,

I'm a relative newb on this forum, but I'll introduce a haphazardly thrown-together demo video for the International Shinkendo Federation for which I am a student/instructor of.



Apologies for the overuse of Magic Bullet filters.

hi

to Michael

thanks for posting a link to a vid but i think it was wrong one :)

a shinkendo vid would be good as it is similar to what is to be shot
