Talk Like a Pirate Day

I shot/edited this little video as part of the social media campaigns at SoftwareMedia.com for International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

The goal was to gain followers on our various social media accounts, using a humorous and purposefully campy short film starring some of our company employees. We shot the film using my personal HVX200 (an older cam, but still an awesome workhorse), and staged the sword fight on a green screen in the company conference room.

Featured in the “Company Meeting” scene are some of the department managers from SoftwareMedia.

Directors Note: In the end, where Jake knocks the papers out of my hands, I got several papercuts on my lip and face. Suffering for the sake of art.
