Two Posts in a Day! Wow. Impressive.

I've been editing one minute clips of CMF movies to be played in college bookstores. Fun and challenging to edit one minute clips for five minute movies. For the first one, I stole the style directly from one of my personal favorite trailers, the one from A Clockwork Orange. Great, original idea for a trailer that really gives you a full sense of the film without giving anything away. I'll include the original for reference.

I've been getting all of my stuff together for applying to grad schools this past week or so, and it's given me the chance to re-watch some of my work that I haven't looked at in a while (always a scary prospect). I did this series of highlight videos at a conference in Vegas over the summer, and was pleasantly surprised when I watched them again. I thought they turned out pretty cool. The assignment was to make the conference look like a really fun event, which was not easy in dealing with a company that makes Norton Anti-Virus and other IT security stuff. Really dry subject matter. Anyways, thought they were fun and wanted to post them.

Loopt Commercial

Loopt Commercial - Ryan Prows

Shot this commercial a week or so ago in L.A. at USC. It's for a new iPhone app that CMF and AT&T want to promote. Didn't really get a budget for it as they'd already tried to do a commercial that got rejected. This also, of course, meant it was a month past the deadline and that AT&T wasn't happy with the situation. So I was tasked to come up with something that we could shoot cheap and fast. I'm pretty happy about the result, I just want to reshoot the close-ups on the phone. And I wouldn't mind getting some new music for it. Also, shout out to young Shannon for acting in it, getting the extras, and getting us all up on the roof.
