What’s Your ACTIVE?


Really excited to share with you a video I shot and produced for ACTIVE Network. We shot this on location with my friend Trey Hill in California during May and used the Canon 7D and 5DMKII as our primary cameras. The really cool thing is I had Air Review do a custom score which really takes the whole film to another level.  The video just launched this week on Love to hear what you think of it.

    • We used a Zoom H4n for audio, with a Rode NTG-2 shotgun or a Tram lav depending on the situation, if I remember correctly. I’ll let Matt answer the apps question; he’s my compass in that department.

  4. Matt, fantastic video. The overall branded feeling is so cohesive and draws you in while sharing the core info. Made me curious to learn more. Great work my friend. You continue to grow in your craft. Giftedness is in your blood. Keep creating!
