My first video: Skipp Coon EPK

Electronic press kit (EPK) for Skipp Coon, a Jackson, MS-based rapper. Shot and edited in January/February 2011. © 2011 Afronaut Productions. Yes, it’s rough but it’s done and we’re (more or less) pleased with it. More–much more–about the process and what I’ve learned to come soon.

    Walter, I liked the interview and the titles between the different scenes, if that’s the right word. The sound was a little hard to follow because of the slight echo. Would it help to get the mic closer to the speaker?

  2. Thanks, LMc, for the kind words. We recorded the audio with the camera’s mic, rather than a boom mic, so there are sound limitations. Next time, we’ll try a more professional mic. Also, I can probably tweak the audio levels during the editing process, which might help, too. In a week or two, I plan to post an essay about what I learned during the making of this first movie (for me), what I still need to learn (almost everything), and how equipment and time affects the final product.
