FroKnows SXSW – BlackRapid Straps

Jared Polin July 14, 2011 Comments Off

Back during SXSW 2011 BlackRapid gave me a bunch of straps to offer to photographers on the street. There was one catch though, in order to get a BlackRapid Strap you had to trade your boring old camera strap for a BlackRapid!!!!

Every person who I stopped on the streets said……… YES!!!!!!

This video below is a lot of fun. BlackRapid did a great job editing!!!

SINAI – The American Dream

Jared Polin May 11, 2011 Comments Off

This video was shot to show off the Nikon D7000’s capabilities and turned into a nice gift video for the band.

The story of how this project came about is I asked Nikon if they would like me to document a band going to SXSW. They thought it would be a great opportunity to let us use the D7000’s to document the tour. The band loved the idea and allowed us all the access in the world to test out these cameras.

The idea behind the video was to follow the band SINAI to and from SXSW 2011 in Austin TX while capturing photos and videos with Nikon cameras and Lenses. The song “The American Dream” is the first single released from SINAI and you can find it on Itunes right now.

The majority of the video was captured with the Nikon D7000 shooting at 1080 24FPS with some wider shots being captured with the Nikon D3s. The photos were captured with both the D7000 and D3s.

What a great experience it is to travel with the band and have the freedom to capture anything and everything.

This video was uploaded at FULL RES, I recommend that you watch it at the highest res possible. Thanks to everyone who was involved from the band and crew to Greg Cazillo and our editor Todd Wolfe.

Yes I really did get into a Porta Potty in SXSW to do a SNIFF test. Honestly the results were not terrible, it smelled minty fresh, check it out for yourself.

On the last night of SXSW we stopped at a Texas Roadhouse which I LOVE. They let me sit on the saddle and film a video just like it was my birthday.

What do you think I should SNIFF TEST next, comment below in the facebook comment box.
