It's been a while since I've posted anything, especially since most of what I work on is proprietary, nor is it my own camera work, and therefore not really legitimate to post.

However, in my spare time I've been doing a bit of singing on the social network called Bandhub.  I joined in October of last year, and have at this point been involved in nearly 40 "collabs".  I'm beginning to get in fairly high demand for doing lead vocals, and it's pleasing to know that people have confidence in my musical vocal abilities.

Other than singing though, I can contribute scarcely more, as I don't play any instrument.  But I've found a different way to contribute and that is to take the "Brady Bunch" view that you get from a finished collab, and using the raw materials I create a slightly more interesting music video that the participating artists might use to promote themselves hither and yon.

Here's what I mean by Brady Bunch view:


There's actually another equally-sized image of the rest of the participants in this particular collab, but this should suffice for you to get the idea. And the final product ...



As always, please click on the broken rectangle icon at the bottom right of the YouTube video screen to make the video full screen, and when it's done, simply press Esc on your keyboard.

I've made several other videos, not only of the collabs in which I've participated (though that's my primary MO), but I've also been so thrilled with the performances of other BHer performances that I've volunteered my services.

And now I'm beginning to get requests for those, but unlike playing or singing in a collab, these videos can take anywhere from 4.5 to 6 or more hours to create, depending on their complexity.

But anyway, it's a lot of fun -- both performing the music and creating the videos.

Intro to the full wedding video, of the wedding of
Daniel & Natasha, held at the Five Bridge Inn.
Nick Kane was on 2nd camera.
It's (as usual) a three-camera shoot, which I edited,
as well as Blu-Ray disc authored and published.

Since virtually everything I've been working on lately is confidential, or something that my position  in the production was not directly involved with either shooting and/or editing, I either am not permitted to post it, or it wouldn't be reflecting any of my personal skills. So I'll just post a little video I did for fun instead.


As always, be sure to click on the title in the upper left to open the video in a new page and from there you can click on the icon in the lower right to go full screen. Turn it up!

Into The Woods - St. Andrew's School - Live Performance - Trailer

Another fun performance by the students of St. Andrew's School. Into The Wood.

Into The Woods (trailer) - St. Andrew's School from Shawn Hare on Vimeo.

  With the exception of operating Camera 2 (Nick Kane) I did everything else: editing (including footage from the next evening's performance to cover up a major gaff in the production), DVD authoring, and production of all accompanying artwork.

Wedding Invitation Animation

This is a little something special I like to do for the couples for whom I produce their wedding video -- a little animation made from their own wedding invitation, to include in their wedding day video presentation on DVD.

Two previous animations may be seen in my 2014 reel, but this is my most ambitious to date, though it's actually simple. The ambitious part came in the cutting out of virtually every asset on the invitation, and connecting an appropriate animation with it. The happy couple really enjoyed it so, mission accomplished :)
As always, it's best to watch this as large as possible.

In the true production, this is set to the song "Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)" by Frank Sinatra. YouTube blocked the music and so I found a reasonably suitable musical piece from their free collection.

My Newest Reel

Rather than being the typical quick view of video clips with a bed of music, this reel also includes descriptions of what I've done in each production instance, including a fairly comprehensive outline of my wedding video service.
