Well, we’ve been busy as always working on many projects. Some of the highlights include Tom shooting with Contrast Creative on the DJI Ronin + RED Scarlet. A b-roll shoot in Colorado Springs for a Max Lucado project, a spot for a wedding dress designer in an amazing old castle just west of Castle Rock, CO… and a 6 day trip to Atlanta that just ended yesterday shooting for T.D. Jakes “Woman Though Art Loosed” tour. Great times and great shots. Check out some of the BTS pics. Also getting ready for yet another trip to the Holy Land very soon.
We just finished up a promotional movie for an amazing organization in Haiti. We donated our time to make this because we believe in what they are doing! Check it out on Vimeo here.
They are governed by a thirteen-member volunteer board of directors, with full-time field directors serving on the island. The mission employs over twenty full-time Haitians and numerous part-time help through its involvement in a wide variety of community service and construction projects. These jobs provide steady income for the employees who support large extended families. A major focus of the mission has been to provide a safe and reliable source of water for the hospital and village of Anse-a-Galets, population 25,000.
We had a great 2-day shoot in Denver last week with Vidano Films and Cox Creative. We shot all around various streets and alleys, at a coffee shop, and a nice fountain area. I also got harnessed up and strapped to the side of a bridge to lean out over the water and get some great shots of the depressed hero girl. We also rigged the Red Epic onto the Freefly movi for the first time, doing wireless follow-focus, client monitoring, and used the RedMote to control the camera’s settings. We were blessed with some awesome weather despite the 100* forecast.
The movie will be shown in high schools to illustrate abuse.
More pics to come soon.
Well, the website got hacked while Tom was in Israel, so we couldn’t keep you posted with all the fun-ness happening during that 15 day trip in June. So here’s a recap.
Tom travelled all around Israel shooting the next Drive Thru History series titled “The Gospels.” Great times were had by all, through some long days walking the path of Jesus. As expected, there was some hot weather, amazing sights, and great food.
They hired a drone crew to shoot Dave Stotts in his ’76 Land Rover on the edge of a cliff overlooking the dead sea. They rode a WWII motorcycle into the Judean Wilderness, and managed the media each evening – checking and backing up the dailies. Shooting with the Movi was just amazing. It has a bit of a learning curve setting it up and learning the nuances, but it is one powerful rig, and the LOG footage from the C300 has a good dynamic range for grading in post. The trip was an absolute success, praise God. We’ll be back in the fall for more.
The first shoot of the series in Colorado Springs went well today with Vidano Films. We are documenting the road to recovery for Colorado Springs Utilities from the fire they had on May 5th that burned up part of the building. This six-week web series will include interviews and great footage of the project.
