I love capturing the details of objects, places, and people that one might not notice at a first glance. Yadira Sanchez Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production, 2017 , The Illinois Institute of Art — Schaumburg
What was the inspiration for your work?

The House of Blues video was actually a quick promotional edit I did just for fun, but all of that footage is originally from something I filmed for a client. I was hired to film a band who were part of the Road to Warped Tour contest and their set was 30 minutes. What inspired me to create it was just the passion to do something more with the footage and wanting to practice my editing.

Then, for my demo reel, I created that for my Portfolio II class. I went out and filmed a lot of the clips my last quarter at Ai because I finally knew what interested me and had a vision for what I wanted my demo reel to consist of. I was also much more comfortable behind the camera. I love capturing the details of objects, places, and people that one might not notice at a first glance. I’m also fascinated by shapes, colors, and textures. I was also working on a few music videos at the time, which I also love to do.

What are we are seeing in your work how did you create it? 

For The House of Blues video, I had a Canon T2i on a tripod as the wide shot and my T5i was handheld. I stood by the stage, which is how I captured the close ups of the band members. The song was provided by the band I filmed, Oppressed Affliction. I chose an upbeat song from their album to fit the quick, fun edit I wanted to create. I edit all of my videos on Premiere Pro.

As for my demo reel, I used Adobe After Effects for the intro text sequence. I used my Canon T5i and various lenses, a tripod, slider, or even went handheld on some clips. The music was provided by a former classmate, Dalton Attig. I sent him a song I really liked, he studied the notes, and rocked it with making my own custom song! He used MIDI programming and he actually played bass and guitar in it, which is really cool.
