Below is a rough draft video production for the Beaufort Historic Site.
North Carolina’s third oldest town, Beaufort lies on the coast bordering the southern tip of the Outer Banks. Originally a fishing village and port of safety dating from the late 1600’s. Located in the heart of this historic district is the Beaufort Historic Site, which depicts 18th and 19th century coastal Carolina.
The images are from stock images. My goal is to capture, enhance and “antique” images while in Beaufort to more reflect the text displayed.
After the opening the video will transition to current lifestyle and point of interest photographs. Depicting volunteers in period clothing while interacting with guests. My current thoughts are using this style in the opening and close. With more energy, pace and color between open and close.
Photography shoot is scheduled for late September & early October.
I plan to use images that that I capture and images that the Beaufort Historical Site may provide from an historical archive. In some cases, I will “antique” my images and have it transformed to color as the video progresses from a somber respectful mood to a more energetic feel.
As noted this is my starting point. It helps me to start with a theme, solicit critique and ideas and then make minor or major changes. Your comments are much appreciated.
