EXPLOSIVE VIDEOGRAPHY AND PHOTOGRAPHY

We always love an adventure, and when we were preparing for a recent photo shoot and full video production, we know we had one! We were all blown away by the final product:

To go along with the video series, the client also wanted some photography work done. The goal was dramatic and sleek looking images to promote a health care leadership program. Check out some of the images from the series below!

Next up was the video, which required a lot of components working together in synch. We had to make custom props,  hire pyrotechnicians and  find the highest caliber slo-mo camera to make the shot look just right.

We started our day with the preparation: our pyrotechnician drilled into the back of the mercury staffs  in order to make room for the explosives.

Back inside, his son (and partner), was gluing in the detonation cord, or det cord for short. It might look like harmless laces or rope, but it packs some serious power!

The finished product was prepped for the shoot by being strung up in midair.

In order to capture all the details of the blast, we needed a camera with a very high frame per second, like the Phantom Flex shown below.

Explosions are messy; we had to make sure we protected the camera behind some plexy! Cleaning between takes definitely took some time but the final product was well worth it.

After the explosive shots, we needed some shots of the aftermath as well. After switching the Phantom to the dolly we were ready for action!

Before breaking down our explosive set, we couldn’t help but experiment with a few other products. Check out the video below!

VIDEO PRODUCTION ON THE ROAD IN SAN DIEGO

Recently we went to San Diego for a video production project. It was a lot of early mornings and long days, but we live by the philosophy of work hard, play hard.

Our Production Coordinator sits with some of our equipment we had to bring for the shoot. No room for clothes when back up batteries are more important!

When we finally arrived in San Diego, we had a few moments to enjoy the warm weather and beautiful scenery before heading off to work!

Setting up all the cameras and lights took a while, but luckily the sunshine was cooperating with our team.

We brought in some local talent to conduct the interview, including a professional interviewer as well as some local grips. You can never have enough footage to help make a video look perfect!

After a hard day’s work, in the evening our crew found some time to enjoy the sunset along the waterfront.

The work might have been tough and the hours long, but at the end of the trip Our team were all smiles at a job well done!

MAYO BOWL 2014 WITH THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

We were honored to be invited as guests to the Mayo Bowl last night, a fundraiser held by New England Patriot Jerod Mayo to raise money for the Boston Medical Center.  It was such a great time hanging out with the players, as we laughed, ate, and of course took photos, all for a great cause!

What a pleasant surprise to walk into the event to see the photo on the VIP passes was taken by Michael Indresano Photography.  It matched our business cards perfectly!
