Local Dallas Talent (Texas Music Documentary, Episode 7)
This series is primarily filmed in Texas. Many of the episodes feature "showcase performances" from selected Troubadours. Casting for the series included talent searches in numerous cities across Texas. The show premiered on 140 stations across the United States.
This is part one of the episode, "Dallas Troubadours" where Kylie Rae Harris talks about what inspires her creative process and performs "Deepest Scar". Later, in a separate part of this episode, TJ Broscoff talks about how he has put his demons behind him by focusing on his music.
This is part of a documentary series that I worked on as a photographer, videographer and social media strategist. On the show we went behind the scenes & follow Texas-based singer-songwriters living the Troubadour life.
While I was part of the production team for the entire run of the show, I was just one of a half dozen or so videographers who contributed. A note to my fellow internet content creators: one particularly interesting element of this documentary is the gear I used as one of the videographers on the show. For all the content I currently shoot, I use a variety of enthusiast level cameras from GoPros to Canon Point & Shoots to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. You can see all the current gear I use here.
The primary cameras I used on this shoot were Canon 7D DSLRs. Look at this episode and leave a comment about what you think about the overall production quality of this piece with the 7D and GoPros mixed into shots from the other videographers using professional cinema cameras.
