11 Mar Dallas Crew Shoots Promos for the David Feherty Show
The Golf Channel is gearing up for a new season of the Feherty Show. With Dallas being the place David Feherty calls home this was the natural location to shoot some promos. The Golf Channel rented a house in a Dallas suburb. It was hear that we altered a large den into a psychiatric office. They really wanted to play up the silliness of David Feherty’s personality.
We shot these promos with two Sony F-800 XDCams. One camera was on a doorway dolly. It’s main objective was to capture an establishing shot. The other camera was on sticks and mostly captured cutaways. With a whole grip truck at our disposal we created this very cool, moody look.
Eventually we had Feherty lying on a couch talking to an actress playing a psychiatrist. Some of the things David was saying were just too darn funny. This guy is a hoot. After we had David Feherty’s lines we switched and got the psychiatrist shots. We wrapped about a half an hour before we had to be out of the house. It was a little crazy getting out of there but we pulled it off. I just love shooting for The Golf Channel. These guys are great to work with.
