Turnaround time: More than a week but less than a month
Description of story
I shot this story as my journalism students at Bakersfield College produced the final two papers of the year. It is more of a gift to them than anything else, hopefully something to provide them some inspiration and great memories as they go on their way. This is my first video on the Canon 7D, and only my second video ever. My background is 28 years of newspaper stills.
General feedback requested, plus I'd like to know why the motion shots, particularly the circular pan shot near the end, are a bit jumpy. Tripod was used for entire shoot. Project was shot at 60fps. Manual exposure and focus for entire shoot.
