“Act of Valor” Question and Answer panel recording online

by planetmitch2 Comments

On February 24th, the #1 box office smash “Act of Valor” launched around the country. On the following day, there was a Question and Answer session with many of the principals from the movie production.

We were able to film the event – tho it started so immediately after the final shot in the movie we weren't prepared with the cameras and audio… so I'm sorry it starts off on blackness with only a bit of audio. But we are sharing everything we captured.

The recording

Jacob Rosenberg – Producer [tentblogger-vimeo 37713200]

Shot on 3 Canon HDSLRs and edited in FCPX with the new multicam editing features (my first time using that)… so it might be a bit rough in the edit, but the point was to capture the event as best we could. The lighting in the theater is obviously not set up very well either.

  1. How is it possible that a moderator holds a mic like this??
    But very interesting! Thanks!

      I had trouble with it during the Q&A too – wanted to shout “hold the mic up” from the back of the room 🙂
