A few weeks ago I shot a bunch of footage with my longtime friend Freddy. Freddy is an endurance athlete and is exceptional by anyone's definition.
I asked him if I could come along during one of his training sessions. He agreed and I got some video that I'm super happy with. After his training we came back to my house and I did an impromptu interview with him.
The feel I'm trying to go for with this video is motivational. I want the person who was thinking about getting a workout in today to immediately feel the need to put on their running shoes. I want the person who needs a push to overcome a challenge to see this and be inspired in a way they weren't before. It's a little different from what I've done before but ultimately the direction I'd like to take with video.
That being said, my interview skills need to be tightened up a bit. I'm planning to reshoot the interview with him soon. Then have a complete product to display and hopefully something Freddy and I can both be proud of.
Below is a quick clip I posted to my Instagram page a week or so ago. It's a teaser.
P.S. I also shot a behind-the-scenes video while getting the footage for the film. I'm hoping to release it soon after the original. Check back for it!
