Sound, light camera : Action

This project was quite a challenge for us as a single camera operator was requested to cover a two 4K cameras setup for a 2 person video interviews, so with 3 microphones setup! I let you imagine also that the lighting setup was a bit tricky to prepare. But it actually turn out great. On the sound part, no less that a Sounddevice 633 was used to feed one Sony 4K FS7 S35 film camera. We also used our latest bi-color flexible panel to keep our bags light but without compromise on color rendering. As all happen in an hotel with mixed white balance; the dual LED panel were the right choice.

Others possibilities

One-on-One Interviews
in Shanghai, Oct. 2018

Hire your Dop and Sound-Tech team for your One-on-One Interviews in Shanghai.

A 10 years returning customer, one more time in need for our nice 2-person crew in Shanghai. The basic Dop + Sound-Tech local crew to cover One-on-One Interviews, but this time outside. The name of the game was “Man on the street” and we stick to our client demand with a versatile and portable setup for this day outside.
It was a pleasure to meet again at their brand new facility is Pudong, Shanghai and take some time for B-Roll as well in their office. The entire building is computer controlled with any kind of sensors you can dream. It made things much more interesting for our Dop.
cheap dop sound-tech one-on-one interviews in shanghai

Why a need for a Sound-Tech?

A blurry picture with a perfect sound is more acceptable than a perfect video but inaudible sound, especially when you are doing One-on-One Interviews!
Yes, we can provide a one-man-band but it’s usually slower to get the full setup ready to roll perfectly. This delay may impact on the stress level of your interviewees. So getting someone dedicated to sound recording only is a great way to ensure all will go on time with excellent result. The Sound-Tech is also called boom operator or sound guy.  He will also brief the interviewee and help the Dop moving the camera gear around.
We always record with 2 kind of microphones to get wind or cloths scratching solved whatever the situation. It gave to the production house plenty of options on mixing these tracks. As we were outside this days, plenty of surrounding noises needed to be taking care of. Our two-person crew did perfectly well. The Dop was focusing on getting the right frame, mostly on shoulder as it was a request from the client. At the same time; the sound-guy was more adjusting the audio levels and sound quality.

Office B-Roll and outdoor One-on-One Interviews

The usual video request is the opposite; B-roll outside and One-on-One Interviews indoor. This office is so great looking, with plenty of futuristic features, that it was impossible to not get a peep of it.
It could seems hard to keep being creative spending so much time doing the same kind of footage, over and over. We know what you need and for us, each client is unique and need to be taken care as it.

Shooting gear rental
Shangri-La, Yunnan, Oct 2018

Hire our local camera operator & rent the shooting gear for your TV documentary in Shangri-La, Yunnan

One of our best project for 2018; spending two weeks on top of the world shooting everything about wine production around Shangri-La valley. This is our second trip for such subject as client was very happy with our first visit in 2015. This time, it was not for an advertising but shooting a TV documentary. The subject is still the same but the way to produce a TV documentary differ. The TV crew also decided to rent the shooting gear directly to us. We provided a full package including a English/french/mandarin local camera operator and all shooting gear at once in Shangri-La. Below are more details about our adventure there.
Hire our local camera operator and rent the shooting gear for your TV documentary in Shangri-La Yunnan
It was right after a rainy September month, so Shangri-La’s lac flooded the surroundings.

Aerial video support

In such location, going without a drone will be a clear mistake as landscapes are just gorgeous. Every mountain is out of scale. In 2015, a DJI Inspire one was provided, but as technology evolved, a Mavic Pro 2 was the perfect match for this TV documentary. Flight range was always limited and dramatic weather or wind avoided. October is the best period to shoot in Shangri-la; the weather is nice and still warm to bring smart amount of clothes. This way, a local camera operator with a limited bag can take care of all needs. Our drone setup was a Mavic Pro version 2, plenty of ND filters as you an imagine. A package of 5 batteries and cards. As footage safety is always our concern. We changed card for every flight we performed. The altitude was not so much a trouble for this little bird, but attention to all electric cables should be paid.
videographer Hire our local camera operator and rent the shooting gear for your TV documentary in Shangri-La Yunnan
We used the ClearSky monitor/controller with a specific 3D printed support. This way, it let the operator hand still able to control the touch screen in a very small form factor. The same charger can be used with the monitor and the drone, reducing also the total weight.  Asking us about our shooting gear rental options is a great way to reduce potential mistakes. We have been there since 2005 and know the place pretty well!

Drone flying at Shangri-la

The surrounding of this city are now a no flight zone, so we stays on tripod for the temple.
temple Hire our-local camera operator rent the shooting gear for your-TV documentary in Shangri-La Yunnan China
But despite this limited area, the Shangri-La, Yunan, landscape seems infinite and our little bird manage quite a lot there. It was the best way to spot vineyard as they are spread around the valley with no other access than the air. Looking at this picture, you can see the tiny green trees alignment on the left side.
movie hire our local camera operator and rent the shooting gear for your TV documentary in Shangri-La Yunnan
I was a bit worry about the lack of air and the need for specific propellers, but we actually always stayed above 3,000m so I did not feel that the Mavic pro 2 was not up to the task. The crystalSky monitor is a great addition and feels way more reliable than a phone. Battery wise, it can let you flight a full days with about 4 hours at full brightness!

Filming at high altitude

Shooting around 4,000 meters altitude could be way more tiring than you think. Every movement with an heavy bag start to be way more complicated. We usually suggest to arrive there at least one day prior to your shooting to acclimate a bit. Few people can feel very dizzy. Shangri-La, Yunan is not consider as high altitude, but within one hour drive,  you will reach 4,000 m high road where all change suddenly.
We love our job and get prepare for such. Experience matters and we can help you planing such trip there too.
The beauty of each landscape is breath taking and living nature is right around the corner. We will not hesitate to get the best of it for you.
looking for hire our local camera operator and rent the shooting gear for your TV documentary in Shangri-La Yunnan
We select our outfit as our camera to not be catch by sudden rain or windy conditions. On top of the world, everything can change very quickly. Hiring the shooting gear from us ensure a that we know how to use it there. IT’s mandatory to bring ND Filters and rain cover ! It’s honestly a remote province in China and even simple AAA battery is not easy to find.

Raw nature videography

Even if we are more often shooting office interviews in Hong Kong or Shanghai, we love going out and this video filming in Shangri-La was a real pleasure to meet local people and herd. This footage will perfectly illustrate local life there. Milking cow, harvesting vine; plenty of colorful picture that you will see on your TV soon.
cameraman hire our local camera operator and rent the shooting gear for your TV documentary in Shangri-La Yunnan
Even with limited filming equipment, all on a shoulder, you can get quickly ready to face whatever activity you will find around you. This Sony FS7 ENG specifically designed rig was perfect, you can rent it from us if you like. It uses a large camera battery with extra Dtap output to power a Zacuto EVF. The shoulder pad and arm extension, also from Zacuto helps to work perfectly stable. You can notice my elbow is static on my legs. The hand firmly controls the camera, the viewfinder is locked with my head. The shot is terrific and completely stable. We added a specific double plate on the top to add the Lavalier receivers to get  as compact as possible.

Getting the right camera operator means someone who know the danger of nature, slippery terrain or wet stones. We will never take too much risks. This is another great shot from the white foamy river that I got for this TV documentary.

Landscape time-lapse

With such a light shooting setup, it was easy to walk around and get plenty of natural landscape and details. I’m clearly found of this Sony lens for such adventure. As we where shooting full HD, the center scan feature was also a great way to add some zoom range.

We recorded time-lapse video using the the internal time-lapse recording option of our FS7 to capture breathtaking footage. A small Sony DSLR body was also there to add more options on the editing.

For this shooting, we provided a local camera operator, speaking French and English and basic Mandarin. The spoken language here being more the Tibetan dialect. The shooting gear was a kit of 2 FS7 4K Sony camera, zoom lenses and Sound lavalier microphone. For the aerial part, a DJI Mavic pro 2 was with us.

This is our most request package when we are sent to a factory, filming heavy machinery and robots. Safety and experience is the added value hiring our video crew.

Videographer interview package:

Choose the one man ban crew if you need to add interview to your B-roll. Coming to you facility in Shenzhen with an extra sound pack (Lavalier microphone, boom and audio mixer), our videographer to hire will spend a bit more time to get your team explaining the process and presenting themselves. We also add few extra prime lenses to make sure you get a great looking video. And finally, a lighting kit is part of the trip.

Being a freelance videographer in Guangzhou is not so easy and you need the right working visa. You could be part of a lot of trouble going with cheaper and not so legitimate crew. I value the country I’m living in and working in a legal manner is also my priority.

Commercial filming
Recruitment Video
One-man-band with two cameras
Shanghai, Sep. 2018

Looking for One-man-band with two cameras for your Commercial filming of Recruitment Video in Shanghai?

Far is the time where such Commercial filming was done only by a minimum of 5 person crew. With advanced camera technology and size reduction; it’s now possible to get all one with a One-man-band with two cameras, reducing cost and management. For this Recruitment Video, I brought my two Sony’s FS7, preview monitors, ND cloth filter and plenty of light to get even a thru windows kind of shot. With only one room available and 8 people to film, you need to get the right video gear to save time and energy. Focusing on the final Recruitment Video brief I received and make this Commercial filming a success.

Recruitment-Video-One-man-band-with-two-cameras-Commercial-filming-shanghai

Nice lighted background when facing the sun on a Recruitment Video ?

I have to put a double scrim fabric in order to balance the sun coming from outside of the room. This product is a bit of magic as it enable you to loose some light without the hassle of bringing a roll of ND filter. It’s also easier to clamp on a light stand as a one-man-band with no one to helps. The last advantage is that it avoid the possible windows reflections.
The only downside is that you need to get the background blurred. But stay away from large aperture if you still want to get a view of the building on the back. With large sensor as the one inside a Sony FS7, it’s easy to get a even surface so blur that we can’t even understand what is actually behind your subject.
The one I used is from Westcott. The name is Scrim Jim Cine Double Net Fabric (8 x 8′). It fits any bag.

Using flexible LED panel for the size when you carry it as a One-man-band with two cameras was not a bad idea!
Recruitment-Video-One-man-band-with-two-cameras-Commercial-filming-shangdong
Recruitment Video is a very important filming project and it should reflect your company high profile. Don’t miss this opportunity with a low end looks. We have been doing Commercial filming in Shanghai since 2005. Make no mistakes when choosing the crew for this assignment.
Shanghai-Recruitment-Video-One-man-band-with-two-cameras-Commercial filming
Another important part of our job is too make sure the interviewees are comfortable in front of my camera. Plenty of explanation and smiles are part of the camera operator job.

How do you record audio on a Commercial filming ?

On the sound part, we use usually one lavalier microphone on the interviewee and one boom mic on top. This way we have both option to mix a bit of each. The Lavalier mic can be subject to placement depending on the interviewee. The Boom microphone is safer but can catch unwanted room ambiance sound. Always turning off the air conditioning if possible. And if it’s not possible, it’s very important to check where the sound will be the strongest to get your filming in another location. I always agree that a bad picture with a clear sound will do better than a inaudible voice on a clear picture. With us, you will be assure to get the best of both for your recruitment video.
Of course, both audio channels will be first sent to our sound mixer before reaching the camera. This way, you enjoy the nice Sound-Devices pre-amplifier instead of the camera one’s. All this equipment can also be rented directly if you like, from Shanghai to Hong Kong.
We usually goes for the Sennheiser MKH 416 and a wired lavalier COS-11D lavalier to avoid trouble with batteries or electronic interference. A spare Sennheiser G3 with the nice MK2 lavalier upgrade is part of basic kit if we need to film some action or a full body video interview.

And if you wonder why so much of “One-man-band with two cameras“, “Commercial filming” and “Recruitment Video” wording in this page? You can have a look here!
