From HD to 4k. We have some great gear.
When it comes to video production gear we can get a little nerdy (but not too nerdy). In house we have some of the latest video production gear, including the Sony FS100 and FS700 cameras which we can couple to either the Ninja 2 or Ninja Blade for ProRes422 acquisition. We have also just taken ownership of the Convergent Design Odyssey Q7 recorder, which allows us to get full 4K raw acquisition when coupled with the FS700. Along with this we have a great collection of fast prime lenses, mics, lights, stands, jibs and sliders, including the new Edelkrone Slider Plus. We can also hire in cameras from the Canon C300 through to the the Arri Alexa.

Diners Club Awards Promo Video
March 2014 Working for WASP Advertising, we produced a series of 7 promo video inserts for their client, Diners Club and ASATA. The brief was to create a conversational tone within an awards environment. Bringing in our lighting rig and 2 camera setup, we created a focused atmosphere that looked great on camera and allowed our talent to relax. What was equally important was the pre-planning of the production, from ensuring the right questions were formulated to the production design, look and feel. Once filming was completed we began the post production, we worked hard on the grading (colour correction) and the actual edit of the footage to create an easy to watch, entertaining documentary style series of interviews. The response to the videos from WASP, Diners Club and ASATA has been fantastic.
"I want to thank you for the great footage from South Africa, that you provided me..."

YDO Making A difference For The Youth In SA We have just completed work on a very worthwhile production for the NGO, NYPO (National Youth Development Outreach). Working on a project of this nature, with charities and NGO's, it's imperative that we spend time with them, understand their business, their methodology. It's important that a promotional film fits the brand and ethos of the organisation. It was for this reason that we used a documentary style in the production of this NYPO marketing video, we felt it created an honesty and warmth around the subject matter. It's film shoots like this that put an extra leap in our step and make us realise how lucky we are having organisations such as this in our country. You can find this extremely worthwhile group at www.ydo.co.za, if you have moment please visit their site and see how you can help.

November 2012 New Film Technology Benefits Our Clients
We've just taken ownership of our new Atomos Ninja 2! We know, it sounds like a dodgy Kung Fu movie. The Ninja 2 allows us to capture uncompressed digital video footage from any of our HD cameras.
