Plug Builders Joe Davino and Todd Sages bring you Old School Customs. Fishing Lures made with the best quality components. Designed to Catch Big Fish.
I took some time to help my fishing buddy, Mark, shoot a video for his friends at Old School Customs. I am very passionate about surfcasting for striped bass. When I was given the opportunity to shoot a video for related to fishing, I had to do it. There aren't many quality videos about surfcasting on the internet, so I figured I'd help the guys out.
This was shot on my 5DmkII with a 24-70mm L lens and a GoPro Hero for some POV shots. Even though there are new cameras available, the 5DmkII is still a viable option for low budget, high production value videos. Lighting was kept simple. I used a Kino Flo Diva-Lite 200 and a CL-LED 256 from Cool Lights. I also used the 5D for the actual product shots. They were done on my kitchen table in front of a black backdrop.
I have been spending a lot of time working with Final Cut Pro X, and I've decided to make the transition to that platform. I cut this video with it and did a quick, down and dirty color grade with Magic Bullet Looks.
