22 Mar Texas Crews On the Road with Honda
Honda Automotive had cameraman co-worker Nate and I teamed up for another awesome shoot. This time we made the trip to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It’s always fun to be out in crawfish country! Nate and I were booked with the Canon C300 and a ton of GoPros.
Essentially we spent the day covering a Honda dealership workshop. Dealership owners and managers spent the day learning about some new technology that you can find on a variety of new Honda models. The day was divided into a morning workshop and an afternoon workshop.
We started the day mounting GoPros on the interior and exterior of a couple Honda Civics. Honda requested that we shoot in 4K/30fps on the GoPros so the editors would have room to crop in post. After the morning presentation was finished everyone walked outside. One group of 20 gathered around a couple of cars and learned about bluetooth technology and paring their phone. The other group piled into a couple of cars and drove off to learn about lane departure warning technology and an advanced form of cruise control.
Throughout the day we got coverage of each group learning about the new technology. After lunch we moved the GoPros to different locations on the car. We shot three camera coverage of the opening lecture with the new group. We ended the day with coverage of the groups driving on the highway and experiencing the lane departure and cruise control features.
We shot lots of footage! Thankfully we had a person dedicated to managing all the material. We did our best to copy footage throughout the day. The last CF cards were copying over as we packed up. It wasn’t too long before we were wrapped and back on the road. It’s always fun working with other Go To Team crews, and of course, awesome Honda cars.
