I was hired by photojournalist Dan Chung to direct a series of tutorial-style web commercials for Sennheiser's mini shotgun, pro shotgun, and radio lavalier microphones. I conceived of three mini-docs in which Dan would demonstrate the microphones in a variety of sonically rich real-world environments. The original idea was to create something that was informative without being too much like an infomercial. We visited a farm, a Bengali festival, and my chef friend Tim Anderson's home kitchen to capture sounds and footage. Unfortunately, the final product is much more bland than I would have liked. I've included both the final Sennheiser edit (which I did not edit) and my own rough cut for comparison.
