A Second Chance at Life

Jake is a high school football player who was given a second chance at life, thanks to the treatment he received at St. Jude for his brain tumor. This is the latest project I shot and edited for St. Jude. The video was created to help promote the annual Wall Street Taste of New York event, which benefits the hospital.

I shot the clinical b-roll with a 5D Mark III and an attached Swivi external monitor, using a 24-70mm f2.8 zoom lens. The interviews were shot on the Sony F3 with Sony primes. All raw footage was captured as flat as possible, to preserve the maximum amount of dynamic range. Post-production was completed on Avid Media Composer.
