We’ve just completed a wonderful summer season at Carolwood Productions’ new home on the Mid Coast of Maine!
Please enjoy this highlight video showcasing just a few of the sights and locations here on the St. George Peninsula.
How to make recycling used motor oil, well, interesting.
That was the challenge recently as we worked with the City of Diamond Bar to create this PSA (public service announcement) detailing what options local residents had as they recycled their motor oil.
A lively script was written, a shot list developed, and we were off to the races!
There is never a dull moment in the world of media creation; and those moments can sometimes be very tasty indeed!
We have been privileged to many “backstage” events and places in the course of filming and producing our client’s projects. A very delicious recent project was shooting a “Meet the Chef” segment for a culinary and locations website, RehearsalDinner.com. We enjoyed being involved with this chef’s activities as she created a beautiful and somewhat unique “Paella” dinner for a number of guests at a secret location!
The St Regis Monarch Beach Hotel provides the backdrop to a fabulous wedding celebration. A powerful narrative technique that can be employed when creating a wedding film is to open up the story with a prelude sequence that “foreshadows” the days events to come. This can help the viewer understand the scope of the setting, the people involved, and the excitement that is in store for the guests.
There is beautiful luggage, and then there is the Sunset Blvd Collection, from Ricardo Beverly Hills.
We recently created another series of luggage spots for Ricardo Beverly Hills for use online, at their annual trade show, and for use on the Kohl’s retail site. These video shoots are generally set up so that we capture all the footage necessary for a number of luggage collections in a single, usually long day of filming. The scripts are written and “locked” in advance so as to make the capture of the shot list as efficient as possible during the day of filming. We also generally try to record the voice over narration in advance. Going through the actual recording of the v.o.s can sometimes highlight last-minute tweaks to a word here or there, or to the specific cadence for a sequence.
