Tattoo Documentary Promo


Tattoo Documentary Promo from jared abrams on Vimeo.

By Chris Collins:

We began shooting our tattoo documentary on Monday at Velvet Grip. Jared decided to get inked up by tattoo artist Dave Hatton, so we shot the session. We captured the tattoo coming together from start to finish. Dave has a lot of great things to say about tattoo culture and his passion for his work.

Misa Garcia of Jag 35 came out to get some behind the scenes. We had one 5D mounted on a c-stand recording time lapse. I was rocking both a 5D on a Jag 35 rig and a 7D with the Zeiss 100mm macro on a tripod. We got a lot of great footage, and there is more to come. Expect a 10 minute finished piece soon!

    Nice video!

    I’m looking for CC-licensed music for a promo I’m working on, and the music you guys have used from 0:50 -> would be exactly what I’m looking for. Is that by any chance CC-licensed?
