____I recently shot a small promotional piece for Gatorade's "G-Series Fit" products. It was a quick shoot consisting of one interview set up with personal trainer Todd Durkin (www.ToddDurkin.com) as well as various b-roll of him training clients around the facility. This piece will be cut together with another piece about female personal trainer Lacey Stone (www.laceystonefitness.com) that will be shot in New York. For my shoot, unfortunately I couldn't turn off the overhead florescents in the gym so I had to let them play. I added a hard kicker/edge to the right side of Todd's face with a 650w fresnel through 216 diffusion. This added a bit of contrast and helped make the image look a little less flat. All of the b-roll was run and gun hand held but the content fit the shooting style and it seemed to work in the final edit. Fun shoot, good people.
