That Canon 70D AI SERVO focusing feature kept auto focusing on the background and the subject because he was moving. Any way to minimize that effect in Premiere?

Shooting with autofocus is rarely a good idea for that reason.

Is it something you can reshoot?

lol damnit. No. Thing is, it happened before and I thought I turned off the tracking for that shot but I guess i didn't. I was just hoping there was some magical way to reduce it since it seems only proper magic can fix something like that. Hopefully they don't mention it. but thanks

You cannot "fix" a bad focus but maybe you can cut around it and make it look like you did that on purpose. Who knows, maybe you can use this trick a few times throughout the piece and make it more interesting.

For example:

I did a commercial project once that required CG, but the CG was really bad so we threw a 'bad video' effect over it to mask how fake it looked. We dropped the effect over a few non CG shots too, and used audio cues to make it look deliberate. No one ever suspected we even used CG at all.

There is always a creative solution ;)
