JT Daniels


JT has small studio space in downtown Kansas City where we filmed his interview and some of the b-roll. We filmed the Interview using 2 Sony a6300 mirrorless cameras: one a tripod with the Rode VideoMic Pro, the other on a Ikan MS-1 stabilizer for moving shots. JT had the rode smartlav+ with a Sony px333 recorder in his pocket recording the audio as well.

After the interview we went to another area of KC to film JT working on a mural that he was commissioned to paint by the City Market. All post-production was done using Adobe Creative Cloud, and the color grade was done using Film Riot's Cinematic LUT's pack and Lumetri inside of Premiere.
