Peter McKinnon B-Roll Challenge

One of my favourite YouTuber Peter McKinnon put out a challenge earlier this week. It was to shoot some B-Roll around your home and tell a story just using B-Roll.

I took on the challenge but decided that I would use an intersection near work that I will film and create a story with it. This also allowed me to duck out at lunch to shoot for an hour and try various things.

I used the Canon 80D to shoot all of the B-Roll at 60 frames per second (fps) as this is my vlogging camera combined with the EF-S 10-18mm lens, EF 50mm F1.8 and EF 25-105mm F4.0 lens. The 50mm didn’t work out well in the situation as this broken, auto-focus wasn’t working on it and I hate manually focusing when shooting video.

So I ended up using the 10-18mm and 24-105mm lens for most of the b-roll. I edited it in Final Cut Pro X and I am happy with the final outcome.

I think I did alright and was happy with the outcome. Let me know what you think of the video. Be sure to subscribe if you like my channel.
