Creating Video Poems for Artists and Artisans

Example 4: Jennifer Kalled Studios

Here is the video that I created for Jennifer Kalled.

This is perhaps the most elaborate of all the videos. It involved a great deal of time and consultation with the artisan. It incorporated video culled from over 12 hours of footage shot in her jewelry studio, as well as underwater scenes, forest and river scenes, and text from an author that is important to her. (The 12 hours of footage were edited down to a little more than four minutes.) The crucial part was to incorporate all of these themes that the client desired, and create a video that moved easily between the many themes and still documented the creation of the her artwork. $3,500

Here is the same video on Vimeo. The Vimeo version is even more clear and higher resolution than the YouTube video.
