PatternReview Top Pattern Contest Fashion Show!

I filmed the fashion show at the American Sewing Expo. This is the first public event that I've ever filmed and it was a lot harder than I was expecting. There at so many factors you can't control at a public place that I was rather unprepared for. The blonde lady who's head kept getting in my frame, black background making it difficult to see the models, horrible acoustics. Not to mention my arms wanted to fall off from holding the camera in one place for so long.

Unfortunately my battery ran short right at the very end so I missed the judges announcements of the last two winners. In the editing I remedied this by looping back to previous footage for those last two contestants, not perfect but it's the best I could do.

The resulting video is better than I expected and at the very least I learned a lot about what to do next time!

  1. I know PR members will appreciate seeing these videos. For me it was a treat to be able to see the whole thing. I was on the stage so never really got to see the "real" thing. Thanks so much for doing this. And I am glad your arms didn't fall off. We need you!!!!!

  2. It was encouraging to have it turn out as well as it did with my limited equipment and experience. I can't wait to upgrade both! I hope the PR folks get a kick out of it... :)
