ShootersNYC Editor Anthony Marinelli Adds Sitcom-Like Whimsy To New Online Campaign For Canon(February 21, 2013)
To view the new campaign, go to: http://shootersnyc.com/spots/canon-michael/
Shot by Director Tim Bieber, the spots showcase real Canon Technical Support Representatives sharing tips on how to troubleshoot different situations, as well as actors featured in Canon Customer Service flashbacks, all edited by ShootersNYC Editor Anthony Marinelli. According to Dentsu Group Creative Director, Bruno Corbo: "The goal of these online video banners was to not only provide helpful tips and demonstrate the value of Canon's Service & Support, but to do so in a memorable and interesting way. Before editing the three videos, we spoke to Anthony and he immediately saw the need to create a balance between humor and the more technical information we wanted to convey. We also had to lock-in on initial takes from our Canon Representatives shot at their call center in Chesapeake, Virginia, so our actors in Chicago could lip sync directly to their reads. Anthony built the shell of the spots that created a plug-and-play format that let us know exactly what we needed to cover in Chicago."
"From the very first rough cut, we noticed Anthony brought a sitcom like sensibility to the concept and cemented a distinct format for all of the spots to follow," adds Dentsu's Corbo. "Since all of the actor's performances were lip-synced to the reps' takes, it required an endless amount of searching and trying to see what worked best. Anthony was also able to artfully set the pace, for a somewhat copy intensive spot, and developed a flow that kept that balance between the fun and facts that carried the stories along beautifully."
For ShootersNYC Managing Director/EP Jeff Beckerman, this project is representative of the way ShootersNYC is empowered to collaborate with clients, given the expanded resources available through the integrated company. The web spots were color corrected by Shooters' Senior Colorist, Janet Falcon, and finished in the Smoke by Shooters' Smoke Artist, Mark Longchamps. "Mark did a great job compositing some tricky shots, and the clients were very pleased with the results," says Beckerman.
"I think Anthony was perfect for this project," concludes Dentsu Producer Steve Amato, who has collaborated with Marinelli many times over the years. "He's an Editor that understands the nuance of performance. We wanted the employees to come across as helpful, but also entertaining, and he recognized those moments in the edits he made. Anthony's work is always very people-centric. I've known that for the long time that I've worked with him. If you're looking for emotion, he will always find that angle. He always found the smile, the funny moment and with it the truth of what these people were saying."
