Truth of the Legend

Here’s a video clip I put together for Twinlab using footage of Twinlab Fuel bodybuilder Todd Jewell. I’ve done basic editing before, but this was a challenge for two reasons. The first is that this was my first “corporate” video, which means that I had to rummage through the internet for royalty-free music to avoid getting sued, as opposed to a personal video where I could just rip a track off my iPod and no one would really care. The second was the watermark at bottom right. It took me almost two hours to figure this part out – to get an image, not text, to appear throughout the clip – but I eventually found the answer in Photoshop and Quicktime Pro.
And as usual, while many of these clips were recorded in HD, I couldn’t figure out how to keep them that way once uploaded to the web. If anyone knows how to do this I’m all ears.
