"Breakout star of Netflix's "Last Chance U", Brittany Wagner partners with National Scouting Report as Official Academic Counselor."
On an incredibly tight timeline from an otherwise impromptu meeting, the entirety of this video was shot in just over 2 hours, with a 3-camera setup and drone at Thompson High School, located in Birmingham Alabama.
"We're the Sanford's and this is our story of God's love and faithfulness in the midst of homelessness, miscarriages, and medical disaster."
My wife Allison and I shot this video in 2016 chronicling several years of challenges and trials we'd faced. Using a two camera setup with 2 Kino Flo light banks, plus a key light, I shot this over the course of two days from the living room of our home.
"National Scouting Report's Blitz Combine Series is a high school football combine that travels the country, measuring athletes and their ability to be potential college prospects."
This was my first production promo for NSR. With a limited budget and one morning to shoot, we ran a 3-man crew with a 5-camera setup (including a DJI drone and GoPro). It was also my first time to color grade and work extensively with audio in post.
"After 8 months, Allison Sanford finally passes the CPA exam and celebrates in epic fashion."
When my wife finally passed the CPA exam, we decided to put together a video to surprise her family. Filming was done in two afternoons, at two locations, but pyrotechnics presented a whole new set of challenges. The box being shot wasn't actually shot by her, and it didn't actually have the CPA exam books in it, but gasoline and half-pound of Tannerite instead.
Roger CPA - a California based company - contacted us shortly after we posted the video, requesting permission to share via social media, but between our correspondence, the San Bernardino shooting happened and they cancelled.
"My wife, Teague the Weimaraner, and myself prepare and shoot our 2015 Christmas card."
We try to go the extra mile for our family's Christmas card every year. In 2015, we aimed to replicate - in a unique way - the 1983 film, "A Christmas Story". This is the footage collected from what it looked like to make that card.
"Several NSR scouts from around the country converge on the 2016 American Football Coaches Association in San Antonio, Texas to meet and discuss team needs."
While working for NSR, I often had to travel all over the country shooting promo videos. After a full day in San Antonio, I jumped on a plane and in the time it took to fly to Phoenix, I was able to put together this video with now Sports Director, Chuck Howard... just in time to watch the Tide roll over Clemson in the 2016 National Championship game.
