Walking into the gym, we were greeted with huge, muscular men and women who helped us lift up our heavy video equipment onto their loading dock and into the gym. They made it look so easy! Tossing our bags and picking up our heavy cases as if they were as light as a feather.
After meeting Jeff, we set up to do some heavy lifting. We get tired from lifting our Sony F5 camera all day which weighs about 12 pounds, so when Jeff showed us his signature move: lifting a dumbbell with metal chains attached to it, he made us look like wimps!
Our goal for the video was to create a cool effect. With the right tools and techniques, we were able to give our video the misty, dark, and grungy look we were hoping for.
After an intense day of working out, Jeff was getting so pumped and heated from all the heavy lifting that the fire alarms went off! (We actually triggered them off, whoops!) We had a brief chat with the fire marshal, and then got right back to work.
Let’s just say if we saw Jeff or any of the other members of the the gym walking down the street, we’d think twice before messing with them. Those guys are jacked!
