NEWSTART Now title block

2017 NEWSTART Now title block. I wanted something which some what summarizes the entire show in a short brief statement in a nice way. I purchased this template and modified it in Apple Motion. I added all of the images and modified the color of the ribbon which works it way through the title block.

 

 

NEWSTART Cooking School Production

Production for the NEWSTART Cooking School.
Well we did it, after a lot planning and getting everything in line. My principle role was associate producer working with Producer Tom Baril Director Business Development at  the NEWSTART Lifestyle Program at Weimar Institute.  We filmed 9 recipes and each one lasting about 5 to 10 minutes. Our intention with this particular batch of cooking demos is to create a product which the graduates of the Weimar Institutes “NEWSTART Program” can watch and actually make something which will work the first time.

As a Director/Cinematographer on this project I wanted to film it in a similar way I did with the Dr. John McDougall series of cooking videos “McDougall Made Easy” I did a while back at his home in Santa Rosa California. Here is an example of what we did for him. He would do an intro then we did a series of cooking demos in his home kitchen with his wife Mary which followed each intro he did. Keep reading I’ll explain how I did the NEWSTART Cooking School. This McDougall copy was most likely ripped from a DVD I did for them so the quality is not great but needless to say it gets the point across.

McDougall Cooking Demo

 So what I did was take the whole concept we did with McDougall to another level of production value. I filmed in HD of course, we did not have it back then with Dr McDoucall, at least at an affordable price point which was reasonable. By the way we, filmed those with three Panasonic DVX-100b’s. They worked great, then I multi camed them in Final Cut Pro. Now I use the Adobe CC Suit, which I think is great.

Optimized-NSN1A Couple of Challenges
A couple of challenges we needed to over come first was the echo in the new cooking school. The room had way to much echo. So we installed a couple of dozen sound panels all around the room, what a difference that made.  If you look in the background you can see the panels we installed the day before.

Affordable Alloys

Welding Rod Variety PackThis was a product shoot requiring the display of a fairly difficult product to photograph. Look on the web and see what I mean.  My client and I took the photography of welding rods to a whole new level.  We photographed with a Panasonic Lumix GH-2 with a 14-140 zoom lens. We shot HDR style with a seven shot stack for each photo represented.

The following is the general product description of these products.
Affordable Alloys products are designed to a higher standard. Quality not quantity is our motto. We design a product to be as good as it can be, not to just meet an AWS minimum. We package in smaller quantities and put in strong plastic tubes to keep protected.
As to the cost difference between fabrication products and Affordable Alloys repair products. Consider the wasted welding rods from getting wet or thrown away due to them not striking or sticking and the time it takes to grind out and re-weld a poorly done weld. Or the downtime due to not having the right welding product for the job.

SOUND FINANCES
As Controller, I will be an independent watchdog for California’s taxpayers, ensuring tax dollars are spent efficiently and effectively.

STRONG ECONOMY
We need to consolidate agencies, simplify the tax code, and reduce the overall tax rate so that California can be competitive in attracting new businesses and jobs.

EFFECTIVE WATCHDOG
The State Controller’s office has been a disaster. I’ll reform the office, fix the accounting mess, and get the state’s fiscal watchdog back on track.

This is some dummy copy. You’re not really supposed to read this dummy copy, it is just a place holder for people who need some type to visualize what the actual copy might look like if it were real content.

If you want to read, I might suggest a good book, perhaps Hemingway or Melville. That’s why they call it, the dummy copy. This, of course, is not the real copy for this entry. Rest assured, the words will expand the concept. With clarity. Conviction. And a little wit.

In today’s competitive market environment, the body copy of your entry must lead the reader through a series of disarmingly simple thoughts.

All your supporting arguments must be communicated with simplicity and charm. And in such a way that the reader will read on. (After all, that’s a reader’s job: to read, isn’t it?)
