INTERNeX Explorer Ep4 – 2017 behind the scenes

The fourth episode is already online for a week again, so we wanted to give you a little peak behind the scenes. It gets easier and easier every time. Since I now know how to make the scripts, do the filming, the voice-overs and editing.

April was the month of the big Rockies trip. Since we always make after movies of the trips we do, I also needed to develop a video of the Rockies. This was a rough part for me to do, because there was so much material and we had so many great moments there. It makes it hard to choose what material you want to feature in the episode. So once I was done there was a video of about 3 minutes, which is way too long. With a little pain in my heart I started deleting and cutting scenes. I hope it still captures the experience we had in the Rockies and you like it.

Another challenge was that Danielle was not here for filming since her family was visiting her, which is amazing of course! When I was writing the scripts I didn’t realise this though, so I just made a script for her. When I found out she wasn’t here we had to change fast, which meant I was suddenly in front of the camera. So in this episode you may see my face quite a lot.

On the other hand I had so much fun making this video again. Especially wheninternexexplorerapril I had to go on a little fieldtrip in North Vancouver with Iris. After taking the sea bus we first decided to have some ice cream, because you can’t film on an empty stomach. Besides that it was such a beautiful day, which made filming and walking around not a problem at all. We took a little advantage of it and had some lunch outside in the sun. It probably was the best “office-day” of the entire month, especially because when we got back Danielle’s boyfriend arrived and we went to the Lamplighter with all the colleagues to celebrate.

If you haven’ t seen the episode yet, you can see the video below.

Hope to see you all in The Pint tomorrow!

INTERNeX Explorer Ep2 – 2017 Behind the scenes

Maybe you already noticed that the second episode of INTERNeX Explorer has been online since Wednesday. Every first day of the month we publish a video in which we inform you about Vancouver and all the activities we organize for you. Besides that, there is also a good laugh in the video. However, it is not only funny for you guys, we certainly have quite some fun making these videos.

Everybody in the PR-team has their own projects to work on at INTERNeX and developing the INTERNeX Explorer is one of my projects. I chose this one because I like making and editing videos. Besides that, my head is always full of ideas and I want to learn more about developing my ideas into products. So I am learning more about filming, video editing, photoshop and illustrator at the moment, which I really like!

I had to start of with giving mstoryboardy ideas for the next video a “coat”. This meant I had to write scripts and draw some storyboards, which was a pain in the ass for sure, since you have to draw the entire scene for maybe 1 second of film. After dividing the parts and getting some props, it was time to start filming. First some small green screen scenes, which were quite easy and after that Janel and I had a little trip outside the office in Chinatown. With Janel as camerawoman and Tess who strolled the streets, a new dream team was born. Besides some shaky scenes and weird
faces into the camera, we were really proud of the results!

And after shooting comes… editing! Editing definitely takes a lot of time and work. I had lots of fun editing the Kelowna part, but Simon is our real editor and did the rest of the video while I was sitting next to him agreeing or disagreeing. After a lot of cuts, precision work, and some small changes from episode 1, episode 2 was done!

If you haven’t already seen it, check out our second episode of the INTERNeX Explorer:

I hope you like to watch the videos we make and I hope I will learn more every month and become a real pro at it! ☺
