Dancing With The Sioux Falls Stars 2018 Video Shoot

We had the honor of shooting the Dancing with the Sioux Falls Stars introduction videos for the DWTS 2018 event in Sioux Falls. The yearly dance-off raises money for NAMI Sioux Falls. We filmed the professional dance instructors and their locally famous partners during their rehearsals.

The set up was simple; A Sony FS5 II was set up on one side of the room for our A Cam and filmed the interviews with a Sony a7sII as our B cam off to the side. Honestly, the lighting set up was a bit strange, but it worked! A photography strobe’s model light was our key light while the ambient room light was our fill. You can see a small LED set up behind the subjects on the B Cam. That was a stylistic choice we went with as well as a side highlight. Audio was captured overhead on the Rode NTG4+ straight to the FS5. During the dancing, we had the B Cam grabbing the tight shots and A Cam on the Ronin M gimbal.
