Summer Holidays

Summer is a great time of year to get out and take those photos. While I am on our summer break this summer I am going to tour our local area and gather a range of stock photos and video that we can use in projects during the coming year.

Sunset Onkaparinga Style

It’s amazing what you can find in your local area to photograph (if you look), how many times do we drive right by something that could be a fantastic photo opportunity.

Sunset at Port Noarlunga

Keep watching this blog for more great scenes from our area. Onkaparinga, South Australia.

Carolyn’s Chemo Caps

Carolyn’s Chemo Caps is a project by the Battunga Country Loins Club and is run by Carolyn Mugford. The group is looking at expanding the project to other Lions Clubs around the world. This requires a web site which has been donated by Optical Design plus, a couple of videos which I have been producing for the group. This worthy project does not ask for payment for the caps as they are free. A donation tin is available at distribution points in various hospitals should you wish to support the project.

A Working Airport December 2013

Last week I visited Adelaide Airport to record some footage for the 5DME.NET aviation Series, A Working Airport. The footage was of the ARFF (Aviation Rescue Fire Fighting) team on drills in the middle of Adelaide’s International Airport. The drill consists of a structure that is rigged to resemble an aircraft. The rig is set on fire with jet-aA1 fuel spiked with petrol to get it going. The crews then have 3-4 minutes to get on scene and extinguish the fire and save personnel.

Anyway, say no more. Just take a look at the video.


Television Commercials – TVCs

My commercial television history played a great role last month with shooting the ULX110 Custom Blend Motor Oil TVC with Angry Anderson from Rose Tattoo. Angry flew to Adelaide, called in to our studio, recorded the commercial and then we went down to the South Districts Workingmens Club for lunch. The club staff had a photo opp and also the story was picked up by the Sunday Mail (Print Media).

I’m looking forward to working with Angry on future ULX110 projects.

You can catch the ad on 44 Adelaide or on the ULX110 web site. There is a possibility this will go to one of the major commercial networks next year.

Christmas Greeting Videos

This week I’ve been out with my team making Season’s Greetings videos for our customers. Everybody in business should be looking to video to personalise themselves to the martket place. Businesses look more professional when using video these days and the old school business owners are going to be left behind if they don’t catch up and get in quick. Anyway, here’s a couple of the videos we made last week. They are only 20 seconds or so but that’s all that is needed. Plus, we had great fun making them. Everybody had a laugh and good time.
