For the first one, I attended a shoot organized by Daniel Bérubé of the Boston Creative Pro Users Group in late January. What began as Dan having a C300 for the evening, and inviting some DPs to come down and play with it, quickly turned into something a little more ambitious. As Dan explains, it "started out with friends as a CAMERA TEST with no script, shot list or idea turned into a quick creative confab and a three minute short set to original music and cut to the groove of a hustle in action."
With footage taken that night, and some pick-up shots that Dan, Rick Macomber and Chris Loughran shot a few days later, the piece was graded and finished by Boston production houses, with Rick and Chris even recording a soundtrack.
The final video has now been posted and you can read more about the production of the video on Dan's Vimeo page: Hustle | Daniel Bérubé | Vimeo
