Henry Cejudo: Quest For Gold

“Henry Cejudo, at the age of 21, achieved his dream and made history by becoming the youngest American gold medalist in the history of U.S. wrestling. Henry’s inspiring journey from childhood adversity to the 2008 Beijing Olympics shows what the human spirit is capable of when passion and perseverance are at the soul’s foundation. His story has rekindled the national ethos of the United States; a place where freedom includes a promise of opportunities for a better and fuller life, a promise of the American Dream.”

This is a sizzle reel for a documentary chronicling Henry’s journey to the 2012 Olympics in London and his quest to win yet another impossible Olympic Gold. I exec produced with Picture Lab Entertainment. We shot on a mix of DSLR’s, from my 7D PL with Zeiss CP.2 primes to a standard 5D and 7D with a mixed bag of still glass, all with Technicolor CineStyle picture profile. Editing was done in Final Cut 7, color correction in Apple Color.

This was shot before I had my Cam Dolly so the few slider moves that are in there was done on a very simple friction based Zaza Slider.
