New Camera Jib
Justin and I have acquired a 12 foot jib! This allows us to get some small smooth moving crane shots and high vertical shots. After getting some counter weights to properly balance the jib, we did a few test shots which I've edited together into a short video (below). We're both very excited as we will be utilizing this on a short film we are currently in pre-production on and will be shooting at the end of the month. Doing this test has showed us how to properly operate this device to get the smoothest shots possible with the jib.
We're also able to rent this out to people for a daily rate. Contact us for more information.
New Light with Stand
I also invested in a new 250 watt Rifa-Lite which means we have finally gotten a legitimate film light! It's a handy little soft source that will become quite useful for all our future productions.
There's a few more things we're looking into investing in sometime soon but that won't be for a couple of months now. Needless to say I'm very excited to get back out there and start rolling the camera!
