UC Band: Recruitment Mode!
There are exciting things happening today in the world of UC Bearcat Bands Recruitment! The UC Bearcat Bands are performing at a BOA (Bands of America) marching band competition in Kentucky, and I just finished a new version of the UC Band recruitment DVD! Take a sample look:
With the exception of the physical creation of the DVD menu template and the C-Paw (which is being used in accordance with the branding specifications set by the University of Cincinnati), everything is my original creation. I took each of the four pictures visible within the scrolling DVD menu at last season's 2011 Liberty Bowl with my DSLR. I shot and edited each of the three short Band videos using a combination of my DSLR and through the use of a friends Canon XL1/Canon XHA1 video camcorders.
This video, the TUCBIDG Recruitment Info listing above, is the newest of the three videos. By new, what I really intend to say is the most recent edit of an existing video. I repurposed a previous video I made last year to better work as a recruitment tool by making it exist in more of a slideshow format that can easily be repeated on loop.
Personally, I think the whole project looks pretty spiffy. What do you think?
