Killer Kessler Crane Promo By Michael Sutton.
Michael Sutton AKA @MNS1974 on Twitter sent us this killer Kessler Crane Promo video. This is how all equipment manufactures should showcase their gear. I asked Michael for a little info about the shoot. Here is his response.
“I was asked by Eric Kessler to commission a lobby video for their office and for the upcoming Philip Bloom documentary on Kessler Crane. Eric wanted product shots in a style similar to how I shoot for Land Rover. I got to gather with a few friends (Hayes McCarthy, Ben Eckstein, Michael Flanagan and Nick Edgar) and we shot all the products Kessler currently makes on two sound stages (one in RI and the other in NH). We shot this several months ago but I asked Eric the other day if it was okay to put up an edit on Vimeo. He said of course so I spent Saturday evening from 1-4am cutting it on FCP X. Now I normally edit with FCP 7, Premiere CS5.5 or Avid Media Composer 6 but I do use FCP X for small projects that only take a few hours. I got a kernel panic on my mac pro just as I was about to submit it to compressor and lost the entire edit. No way to recover it. Project and Event files had disappeared. So I recut the entire thing Sunday afternoon in a few hours and posted it up on Vimeo”
