Video: David Staines, Writer

Recently completed a web promo video for David Staines' new book, The Letters of Stephen Leacock. The 500 page book features the text of hundred of Leacock's letters.

We interviewed David in his library, with the background of book shelves supporting the premise that this is about a literary work. With few photos to provide additional interest and cutaways, we used scrolling test from two of the letters as they were read by Staines. Footage was acquired in HDV, and edited in Adobe Premiere. Proofs were provided on DVD. Intro music is from Sonic Fire's Smartsound library.

The clip is now on YouTube. David Staine's new website, managed by beachdigital, at features a Flash version.
