This is a Behind the Scenes made by Dave Dugdale from LearningDSLRVideo.com. Sterling-Rice Group (an ad agency in Boulder CO) was kind enough to let me film BTS footage of their “Pain Fairy” ad spots. Dave used a Canon T2i/550D to film this about 3 months ago. I also used Luke Neumann’s color presets on most of these shots.
