How To Extract Coconut Oil

Video I created for for Dixie Lincoln-Nichols, Founder and President of Dixie Bits, which is “a gorgeous and eco-friendly line of beauty product.” In this video, you will learn how to extract coconut oil from a coconut on a stovetop. It was entirely shot with a Canon 7D, Canon 50mm 1.8. For audio, I used the Zoom H4n + a Sony wireless lav mic (UWP-P1). Note that we used natural light for this, and NO color grading was made!.

    I tried to watch this video because it seemed very informative, but the camera was so shaky and focused in and out so repeatedly, just as it would focus on something, the camera-person would pan to something else and it? would be fuzzy again. My advice would be to use a wide shot on one camera of the kitchen, the host and the guest, so when she is explaining general things show that shot. Then have a second camera on a tripod or someone with a steady hand to show the bowls, blender etc.

    Seriously? Ok but only because the granny’s cute. Tell the girl to get an omega 8003 to process it than place? it in the oven at the lowest temp until most of its golden or better yet get a dehydrator for a better quality raw product and than run it through the omega 8003 and tada you’ve got clear white oil the way every pro company sells it.

    I agree, a tripod would help. Overall though, the video is great. Super informative and nicely done. Good job. ?
