For those observant enough to notice, the recently produce “Roll Tribe” video on Connect-Bridgeport covers 2 minutes and 43 seconds. What only the most ardent observers or those with a little video industry background will tell you, is that those near 3 minutes of video didn’t happen in just a few hours.
For Luke Nesler, Jason Young, Dylan Sheldon and Ben Queen, the collaborative effort involved a combined total of likely several hundred hours over the course of more than a week. Nesler and Young handled most of the upfront work, while Sheldon and Queen operated behind the scenes.
And it was the work of Sheldon in particular that will allow those who have a bit of curiosity about how the “Roll Tribe” video came together to a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the three-day photo shoot and the editing and pulling together of the video that followed.
“A good behind-the-scenes videographer is one you don’t even know that they’re there doing their work,” said Nesler. “Basically they’re invisible. When I saw this for the first time there were plenty of scenes that I couldn’t even remember and others that I just didn’t realize Dylan was filming.”
Young said this particular video clip works because it meets a genre that may have been spurred by the reality television craze. For those that want to know what’s going on, it meets the need.
“With the video production there are a lot of people out there that don’t realize what it takes to put together the final product. There’s so much time involved, people and resource and you don’t see that. Luke has got gear out the wazoo, but if you see him out all you may see is him and his camera,” Young said. “This lets you see what it takes and people like this sort of thing. It falls in line with the desire people have to see how things are made, bloopers and outtakes. It’s really a neat piece.”
