L.A. Professional Video Production – Unusual Specialty Shots

So Cool!! That’s me and my dog, Bayley, kickin’ back on the front porch filming some spectacular footage with my Zenmuse X5. And did I mention the incredible shallow depth of field? Special camera for some very special shots, the X5 films remotely with a phone app. Fits in tiny places and doesn’t need a videographer standing with it. Enjoy this relaxing 4 minute medley of quiet, calming scemes. More at www.24ktsound.com

Palos Verdes Video Production – St John Fisher Rehearsal Highlight

Absolutely stunning, incredibly sharp video highlight seen below of Joe and Katy’s wedding rehearsal at St John Fisher, Palos Verdes, CA. filmed in 4k with the amazing Zenmuse X5 camera. The quality of this 2 min. video speaks for itself.

The X5 is tiny and very portable. The different angles seen in this highlight were obtained by moving the camera (it lifts up literally with one finger) from location to location during the rehearsal. The Camera, which is configured on a mini tripod with a 3′ riser sits on the floor and is so inconspicuous that it is hardly noticeable. The camera operator sits nearby in the pews and operates every function of the X5 with a cellphone app. Truly amazing technology. The picture quality is to die for! For the camera buffs the settings were: ISO 400; shutter 1/60; aperature 5.6. The lighting conditions were challenging, dark in the pew areas, bright on the altar. After camera calaibration I filmed mostly manual focus at infinity with periodic auto focus adjustments. Enjoy the clip!

 




Professional Video Production – Maxing-Out the Options

If you own a business you’ve got options here at 24KT Video on the production end as well as in post. We continuously reinvest in new software to perfect the finished product and new hardware that expands our clients’ creative options to film their products, services and business events in quite extraordinary ways. To that end we added a new camera that allows us to film our client’s videos “on the move”, walking, driving, riding, running…over the roughest terrain, even up stairs, with steadicam-like smoothness. Stealthy, inconspicuous, versatile are all good words for our newest camera, affectionately named (by us) “OSMO”.

Accessorized to the max with a pro shotgun mic for pristine audio pickup even at a distance, a boompole, LED lamp, suction cup mount for car windows, roofs, side panels and hoods, a mini tripod for stable placement on tabletops in trade show booths and conference tables, on floors, storefront windows or handheld. But it’s OSMO’S triple axis, synchronized, motor-driven gimbles that provide a silky smooth, stable shot regardless of the terrain that make it perhaps our most valuable tool.

OSMO opens up incredibly creative filming possibilities for our clients’ events and commercials like never before. And if that weren’t enough, OSMO films in ultra high definition 4K video as well as 1080p and doesn’t need to be operated by a videographer standing behind the camera. OSMO is remote controlled with a phone or ipad app from up to 10 feet away. In sensitive locations like some churches where cameramen aren’t permitted in the best filming positions, OSMO can be placed out of sight and be controlled to perfection.

We gave OSMO a little workout on a recent road trip to the beach at Royal Palms. Handheld, tripod and window-mounted clips can be seen in the demo. My capable intern, Andrew B.Z. handled the controls. Enjoy!
