Downtown Lincoln, Illinois, is sporting a freshly renovated and expanded theater, the Lincoln Grand 8, and four local business owners hired me to produce a pre-roll congratulatory message which is now showing on the screens at the beautiful new theater.
Chris Graue (Graue, Inc.) raised the idea with me in December. We met with Patrick Doolin (Integrity Data), Joe Ryan (Country Financial), and Nick Guzzardo (Guzzardo's Italian Villa) as well to discuss the concept and script. In early January we met at the theater to film the interview pieces and I shot some B-roll footage later that day. After a couple rounds of edits, the finished commercial was ready to ship.
Congratulations to David Lanterman, owner of the Lincoln Grand 8. It's an outstanding destination for locals and visitors alike--I hope you'll come watch a movie here soon.
Technical notes: the video was filmed on a Sony A6000 camera outfitted with a Sony 18-105 F/4 lens. The interviews were lit with an ALZO Digital Pan-L-Lite kit and audio was captured with a Rode VideoMicPro microphone into a Tascam DR-60DmkII audio recorder.
