Recent Work :: That Funny Magic Guy

We had the pleasure of working with an extremely talented magician, Jason Werhun – That Funny Magic Guy, over the years and have now just completed a new promo video for him. We think it’s turned out quite nicely and has been a great change of pace from the usual corporate work we engage in and love to produce! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jason many times over the years and he’s not only a wonderfully entertaining performer but also a good friend. For this project we combined material shot on Sony XDCAM EX Camcorders along with P2 footage and the white background shots were done on the Canon 5D Mark II. The shots with text elements were integrated by rotoscoping the practical foota

Color Grading :: SpeedLooks Irritates Me… In a good way

I’ve said for years that everything needs some level of color correction to fix mistakes or slight imperfections recorded in camera or to take something from looking okay and mediocre to looking fantastic.

Project: CEO Message to Shareholders Agency: Bryan Mills Iradesso Client: TransCanada Pipelines Limited Project Overview We were fortunate enough to once again be able to work with the wonderful people over at Bryan Mills Iradesso on an accompany piece for TransCanada Pipelines Limited Annual Report with a CEO Message to Shareholders Video.

New Kit | Teleprompter

We recently did some testing on several teleprompters, Applied Electronics and Autocue were incredibly helpful and in the end we basically stole the 8″ Professional unit. The first prompter we received was a total piece of crap, it introduced chromatic abberations and other optical artifacts, and had a cheapish build quality. This prompter is professional, the glass that sits in front of the camera’s lens is really high quality and really doesn’t affect the image and the loss of light through the glass is so minimal that isn’t an issue either. And this Prompter being an 8″ unit it is perfect for corporate and some commercial work, it’s small and light and really portable. In fact this unit i
