This was the first year we were available to participate and enjoy the All-Industry Cruise! We were asked to make a highlight video of the event. We decided to bring our new Canon 5D mark IV and take it for a test run. We REALLY loved the camera. It's got some great new features that the mark III did not have. It shoots 4K video, and has some nice autofocus tracking! It also looks amazing in low-light (see our last shot in this video, of the San Diego bay at night!)
We also loved the cruise! It was on the Inspiration Hornblower, and there was lots of appetizers, drinks, and dancing! It was definitely a fun event and there were people from all different types of businesses to network with.
Making highlight videos of events is a great way to promote the event for future years! When shooting, we look for the best shots, as well as find a way to include all the components. There were many different sponsors, so we tried to get shots that included them as well. When editing this type of video, we highlight the best parts yet keep it short and concise so people don't get bored. The worst thing is to have a boring video, and that is definitely NOT our style.
Enjoy this fun highlight, and maybe we will see on you board next year!
