For the past several months, I’ve been trying to develop a portfolio to demonstrate my evolving video production capabilities. I’ve uploaded numerous videos to YouTube. One of my favorites is Mr. Rhody. I shot it on the spur of the moment, so it’s a little rough. Last October, I attended Homecoming festivities at Rhode Island College, in Providence. I didn’t realize that Charlie Hall’s Ocean State Follies would be performing that day. The Ocean State Follies performed several skits that poke fun of Rhode Island — it’s people, culture and local politics. Charlie Hall saw that I had a camera in my hands (my Canon T3i) and asked if I would capture their live performance. So I did. My favorite is Mr. Rhody, which pokes fun of the local dialect (Cranston Rhode Island-ese, in particular). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
