Video production Durban is happy to announce the ad is done. We have wrapped thank goodness and all is good. I will upload the video once the client goes live on TV. And the client wants another project done so that’s great news.
So the ad is 45 seconds long in “MOV” format, we have more than 1 version depending on what the broadcaster wants.
My very next blog will definitely include the advert as well as photos. I hope you look forward to it as much as i do.
Call GCV Video productions for any video requirements you may have. Guy Crosbie and his team will deliver anything you may need, from filming and editing to script writing.
video production durban is wrapping final advert sequence as mentioned in the blog before. Its very important to check the broadcast requirements.
What has become of PAL and NTSC when using MP3 or MOV? Its a good question. Please send me a message as to what is happening with the two video formats. I know videos shot on my Sony NX3 camera are still PAL but I am sure these can be converted to NTSC if need be.
I am not an aurthority on the subject so would love feedback on the subject.
So the edit is done and all broadcast requirements have been checked so now its a case of handing final video over to the client. Thanks for reading and staying in touch
Send us any requests for subjects you may want info on.
video production durban is wrapping up the advert for tv we have been working on for the last 3 weeks. It is looking great but I cannot show it just yet until the client has it broadcast on tv.
I feel it was smooth sailing. We had a good idea of what we wanted going into the production. That makes it much easier to get the shots you need. Have them written down on paper available to read at the shoot as well as visual images .
Editing is all about timing of the visuals to the voice over. The advert went from 30 seconds to 45 seconds but most of this extra time was made up of titles at the end of the video.
Please check with the broadcast company that you are delivering a final advert programme that matches the broadcast requirements. SD, HD, MPEG, MOV, PAL, NTSC are all different broadcast requirements. Some of these are no longer required with new technology
Update coming soon.
no 1 video company Durban is on the post production stage for the project. Voice Over has been recorded and a song has been selected online from a copyfree site because of budget.
We have edited the prject with which we think are the best shots visually to tell the story. This can be viewed differently from the client because they might view it from a personal side and look at who appears in the video and who doesnt.
The final ad is 40 seconds, this needs to include quite a long contact list as the very last frame in the timeline. It is a requirement from the client so it must get included.
The edit right now is in the first draft stage, this means that while I’m typing this the client is looking at a draft version of the advert and deciding what changes need to be made. We have to still finalise the last title and we not happy with 1 video in the advert but that most probably requires 3D animation to fix.
We are now in the waiting stage, we waiting for feedback from the client so that we can go ahead and edit Draft 2 .
GCV Productions will keep you posted.
no 1 video production Durban had a fantastic day on Friday. GCV Productions and Pixel Craft Training teamed up to produce an advert for TV that should be aired in a few weeks time. Wow what a day we had.
The day began at 8 am collecting the camera man and assistant / actor from Pixel Craft in Overport, Durban. We arrived on location at 8:30 am and offloaded all our gear. The equipment we took for the shoot was the Panasonic GH 5 Camera, Zhiyun Crane, Sony NX3 camera, LED lights and a reflector. No audio was being recorded…what a relief. The GH5 camera on the Zhiyun Crane is phenomenal! We got some amazing shots, well done to Manosh Seetherem from Pixel Craft Training for the incredible shots gathered. Filming went on throughout the day until 4 pm. The advert will be 40 seconds and we must have had at least 80 minutes of footage, you can never have too much. I will upload pictures in the follow up blog.
Now the approach is to edit and make sure the visuals tie up with the voice over already created as well as titles and background music. We have all those in place so theoretically the edit should be quite straight forward. The edit already began yesterday with a very rough outline edit. Timing needs to be worked on and the last closing title. A final master will be uploaded when complete.
Guys, thats it for now, we need to edit and get a finished product to a customer.
no 1 Video Company Durban has just returned from a Recce so lets chat about what occured so that you can learn and be prepared for the following:
We arrived at the location a little early. Made arrangements with the client to do a walk through together. We discussed the very first opening shot which is the reception area. We decided who the actor was going to be (All staff and residents who appear in the production must sign a release form). We have given the client the release form and have left it with them to sign.
The cameraman and I, and the client walked from room to room checking the lighting coming through the windows. Remember time of day will determine the amount of light coming through.
We also looked at props required for the production. Most props were available but there were a few things we needed to find. A recce gives you great start to the production allowing you to iron out and foresee any problems before production.
Make sure if the client has any queries that you able to assist them. Everyone must be happy before production starts.
Well thats it for now , hope this blog helps you with tackling a recce on location. Be thourough.
Hi, welcome to no 1 video company durban. Today I am about to do a Recce in Springfield KZN. So lets talk you through the schedule.
12pm – Pick up my colleague and cameraman.
12:10 pm – Arrive at location. Meet the person in charge and brief them on what our plan of action is.
12:20 pm – take pics of the rooms we would like to film and create a shotlist together neat enough for the client to look at. Check lighting and time of day. We are not recording sound so it definitely makes it easier while on recce.
Take pics, take pics, take pics. Very important to get the best visual representation of the location layout. Brief staff that are available on what we need on the day of filming. Check cleanliness of floors, walls and furniture.
We will take some video as well for test footage. This will give our editor an idea of the footage we will give him after the filming. The editor will treat the footage and most probably apply effect to all the shots so they match.
The idea of a recce is to relieve the pressure on filming day by doing as much prep work before filming. Visualisation works very well with video and let me remind you we are a visual industry. We speak using pictures and sound.
Thats it for now guys, will give you a post briefing later after the recce and a visual breakdown. Hope the client does’nt mind pics of their location being uploaded, I will most probably check with them first.
