Today, we get to step into the world of professional video production. Chris Vandershaaf currently spends most of his time behind his Phantom 4K Flex shooting that sick super slo-mo video. In the beginning, he literally stumbled into operating a camera in television and taught himself everything from simple editing to Hollywood quality animation and visual effects.
We nerd out about camera gear. We wrestle with the decision to go to film school and how to get started in the industry through networking and shooting spec. Chris is one of those really genuine dudes who is just loving life creating video! I really appreciate his no-nonsense approach to learning from more experienced professionals and his patience to work hard for years to eventually land huge gigs.
He has a killer Instagram where he shares BTS shots of how these complex slo-mo shots are actually created. It’s a must follow.
