This is my first video project - a 14 minute review of the weekend events to be given to attendees, to be posted in forums and on a website - and to be used as a business promotional tool. The common interest among these folks is hand made one-of-a-kind custom cutlery. There are segments featuring target shooting, a round-table discussion, an evening viewing of knives for sale, the actual sale, cutting demonstrations and a competition.
Jerry Fisk has been designated a National Living Treasure from Arkansas. His knives (and those of the three other invited makers) represent the highest levels of skill and knowledge today. An educational theme is prominent throughout. There is humor, some good stories, interesting information and plenty of action. I had unfettered access to everybody and everything. I mixed clips from both my Canon 5D3 and my GoPro Hero2, then edited the video start to finish in Photoshop CS6 with its 'great for beginners' motion module and am now preparing to take my next project from CS6 to Final Cut Pro X.
