It’s that time of year again, Louisville. It’s the glorious time of year where you nurse your March Madness hangover by completely ignoring all responsibilities and instead consuming your mind with events that lead up to a two-minute horse race. Fireworks, hot air balloons, marathons, celebrities, bourbon, mint juleps… It’s all very distracting. So here’s another distraction: which horse(s) should you bet on this Saturday? Check out our interview with notoriously good bettor Dave Shulhafer to get some advice before you go blow all your money on Pitino’s horse.
For a few members of the Videobred team, Easter weekend was spent with the Phantom Flex camera, capturing in slow motion things like eggs in mouse traps and Newkirk hitting a 300 pound block of ice with an axe. Over the weekend, they were able to capture a wide range of events in slow motion, such as a parade, archery, and break dancing.
Thanks to our friends at the Camera Department in Cincinnati, we were able to have a few days of hands-on training with the Phantom at Videobred and have some really cool footage to show for it.
Today, our VB Alum spotlight is on former intern Gina Durkan! Gina was with us during the summer of 2011 after she graduated from Western Kentucky with a degree in broadcasting and English. Now she’s working in Nashville for ABC/Lionsgate. We’re proud of Gina’s success, but we definitely miss her wit, talent, and her ability to edit gems such as the “Chronicles of Bacon,” which follows Archie (Steve Hurst’s dog) on his quest to find bacon at Videobred. To see what Gina’s been up to as of late, check out her interview below:
Whether you cheer for the Cards or the Cats, we can all agree that the Cards did a great job representing the city of Louisville at the Sugar Bowl. In this entry, receptionist Rachel Shulhafer explains just how awesome the Cardinal victory was for her:
On an otherwise forgettable December day at Videobred, the phone rang.
“Good morning, Videobred,” I answered. I expected to hear a familiar voice of one of our clients, but I was way off. I instead I heard the pre-recorded voice of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard playing in the background.
