At long last (not really – Mike busted that out pretty quick IMO), the video I’ve been teasing through photos for the last little while is done! Mike sent it late last night and boiiiiiiii is it sweet. I can’t do video myself nor do I really want to after seeing how much work it actually is, so watching Mike and Ricky do their craft is something else. Ricky still needs to get some additional clips before he finishes his video, but in the meantime – Mike’s video can help fill that void.
He’s got a really chill vibe going on throughout the video and it’s super relaxed. I’m a fan of it because it doesn’t involve any type of DDR song, it doesn’t require a bass drop or any funky shaky visual effect to present itself well. Mike incorporates a few voice clips, some exhaust sound clips and music in-between. I’m no pro, but the transition of the video from meeting up with him and saying “what’s up” to ending with the take-off and Ricky yelling “am I in your clip?!” ever so faintly makes this a really feel like a homegrown and personal video to me.
Anyway, watch the video and enjoy. Give Mike a follow/like as well. It’s nice “working” side by side with someone who is like-minded in the photography game, so I’m happy he was able to do this for me.
