Our client Westminster College asked us to create a couple beautiful student profile videos for the office of marketing and communications. In this video we had the pleasure of working with college senior Ariane Drake. She started Hands 4 Uganda, a 501c3 non-profit, just after finishing high school. Her organization helps give kids an education in Mbiiko, Uganda. She is the president of the trail running club on campus. And, she is preparing for a career in optometry where she hopes to continue serving and helping others.
We filmed this video in the foothills of Salt Lake City’s Millcreek Canyon and on campus at Westminster College. We used a DJI Inspire 1 drone to film the aerial portions of the trail running segment, and a DJI Ronin for the moving camera. Our recently purchased Sony A7S II served as a great small-form camera capable of capturing this imagery in 4k, and worked perfectly on the Ronin as a light-weight solution on the trail. We used the Black Magic URSA Mini for the locked off shots. Blending the two cameras in post took a little extra work, but both prove to have excellent image quality.
