Fitted Lifestyle 2016 Aftermovie - I'm not personally happy with the outcome of this video, but after way too much peer pressure from my friends I finished it. I personally think the intro to this video is good after it my head wasn't really in the game. I was having gimbal issues that are VERY noticeable in the video. I fixed the problem (hdmi cable and monitor interfering with the top motor of my gimbal) every shaky shot really pissed me off. What could've been a great video is ruined in my opinion because of that. Hopefully the videos I produce after this and so on will be much more fluid.
The story: I wanted to video to read sort of like a story, with a beginning middle and end. I started off with my friend Kenyon, unfortunately he wasn't able to attend the competition because of car related issues. As the intro goes on it shows Kenyon prepping his car for Fitted. Then transitions into the show portion of the video show casing some of the builds that attended the show. Finally into the conclusion I ended it off with the 1st place static award winner Alex with his red BMW e46.

SUMMER SLAM JAM 2016 AFTERMOVIE | STANCE EAST | NEW BRUNSWICK | 4K | CJ SHOOTS
Stance east summer slam jam, better known as SESSJ is an annual automotive event in New Brunswick, Canada. Bringing cars from all overthemaritimes this show is growing, and is one you shouldn’t miss!
This was a huge project brought on by stance east, andwhati thought would be a 10 minute video ended up being 20 minutes! my longest video i have ever done. I feel as if in the past weeks I’ve learned so much about videography that this aftermoive could’ve came out better. Although i am content with it, i see many improvements that can be made!
IMPORTFEST 2016 UNOFFICIAL AFTERMOVIE | TORONTO | 4K | CJ SHOOTS
To be honest, this wasn’t going to originally happen. In the last couple days leading to Importfest it was an impulse decision on my side as to if I should or shouldn’t make any sort of video for this show. Well you can obviously see what happened! From a 13 hour day of recording on and off, to 2.5 hours of raw 4k footage, I was able to condense it to my favourite 11 minutes, which is my longest after movie yet!
I usually like working with a story line, but this video is a true event recap. Although I couldn’t record roll in and the bikini competition. I was able to get clips of just about everything. Theres quite a few cars that I missed and wished I got clips of.
Grade wise, I wanted to go with a very cinematic look, thus very contrasty and vibrant. I personally love the way my grade came out and I am learning more day by day about s log and colour grading.
STATIC NISSAN 370Z | TORONTO | 4K
Ian approached me about making a video a couple weeks ago, the day came up and the forecast called for a drizzle, Ian was a little hesitant but I jumped to the opportunity, the vibes of a moody day play so well with this song I chose. I decided grading very contrasty would play well with the video.
Classic Porsches are life, so I had to drop by the Oakville Porsche cars and coffee meet! So many generations of Porsche, great seeing everything. Such a beautiful dealership, with a great turn out made an excellent short recap.
