This means we can put the perfect team of professionals together, specifically for your project, be it large or small, for TV or for Web.
Where our experience lies:
What kit do we use?
It all depends on the look you're after.
Sony FS7 camera with prime lenses (Samyang 12mm and 35mm) will shoot 4K Ultra High Def with lovely shallow depth of field for those glossy corporate films. High Dynamic Range (HDR) gives much a greater exposure index and in HD mode we can also shoot super slow mo at 150 fps giving a reallly smooth look.
Sony PMW500 camera for 'run and gun' documentary work. This is the BBC camera of choice when it comes to factual programming. With a wide angle Canon HJ14x4.3 lens we can shoot sequences quickly and efficiently with masses of scope on both the wide and the long end.
GoPro 6 with gimbal for those 'impossible to get any other way' shots.
On a typical day out we'll also have a Vinten 100 Tripod, a lighting kit with a couple of Bi-colour 1x1 LED panels, Ianiro Bi-colour LED maybe a set of extra soft lights and a camera top light (PAG LED), lots of mics including a sennheiser 416 gun mic, radio mic, lapel mics and radio handheld mic.
If the shoot demands it we can of course also provide motion control rigs, dollys, camera jibs and cranes or additional sound and lighting equipment.
