Fake “Security Cam” still- 4 steps

It was really quite simple to achieve the camera footage look. I added grain, removed the color, then layered a transparency of TV scan lines. Finally, for “authenticity,” I added a digital time-stamp with the “digital-7″ font, and created lighter circles around the characters the way security images are portrayed on the news.

JNF Aronson Family

Working as an Associate Editor at Teletime Video Productions, I was assigned to do a full edit on a project for Jewish National Fund (JNF). All of the shooting had already been completed the week before in Newton, Massachusetts. It was my job to take the footage along with B-roll the company already had and make a 3 minute documentary showing the philanthropic work that the Aronson family had done for JNF over the last forty years or so.
