What equipment is used for the footage?

We have several in-house cameras including the Sony Ayiii – a highly respected camera in both photography and video production circles. Known for excellent and accurate colors and exceptional performance in low light – directly competing with other respected brands including RED and Black Magic. It outperforms the RED in low-light and is, arguably, second in low light only to Black Magic.

When relevant, we can also rent specialized cameras.

We have a range of lenses and lighting equipment from various brands, getting f 1.8 at 35mm-85mm, advanced Meade ETC-09E terrestrial and extra terrestrial automated optical system for incredible footage from long distances and into space. Again, we also rent specialized equipment when necessary.

And our equipment list is growing every quarter.

 

What does the timeline look like for this service?

On average, we require 4-6 weeks from the point of sale to the delivery and publication. The availability of the actors, locations and props may impact this deadline. Below are some more details of what the process looks like”

  1. 2 hour meeting to brainstorm and create a rough outline of the story.
  2. We will submit a first and, ideally, final draft for the outline for approval.
  3. Once the outline is approved we will create a first draft of the storyboard and submit it for approval.
  4. After that we will schedule filming dates and coordinate with all parties to do so.
  5. When filming dates arrive and footage is collected editing and post production will begin.
  6. The first cut of the edited film will be submitted for review roughly two weeks after post production begins.
  7. Once approved it will be published to the website.

Note: This service is typically highly customized, so the price you see for this service is our base price and we may require additional funding after speaking with you about your needs. If that is the case, you can expect an itemized proposal that explains precisely where the additional costs are coming from.
