Hi guys, welcome to another blog from Durban’s no 1 video production company in Durban. Today lets talk about filming properties. We at GCV Productions have been filming properties for about a year now. We call it a video walkthrough. We use the DJI Osmo and a Canon DSLR for the photos. The idea of a video walkthrough is for the property to be viewed by a potential buyer looking at photos and video. I believe the photos are the first sell. If a potential buyer likes the photos they will then move onto the video.
And obviously the photos and video must show the property in the best possible way. I will attach some pics and a video of a recent property we filmed and photographed in Cowies Hill KZN.
‘Time of Day’ can be very important when filming a property. What is the sun doing at the time of filming or photographing. Are harsh shadows developing, is the outdoor light too bright creating a silhouette?
Make sure all lights are turned on in the property (if possible) and toilet seats placed down.
Lets have a look at a few photographs taken last week.
These pics are of a 3 bedroom house for sale in Cowies Hill. Time of day was about 10:30 am. About 20 photos taken overall and a video showing the property. A canon dslr is used to best show the property. We could use a wider angle lens to possibly show off the size of the rooms.
Hi, welcome to another blog from no 1 Video Company Durban. Today lets talk about 2 very big Hollywood Directors…Gavin Hood and Neil Blomkamp. Gavin Hood is on a very good role directing top films in Hollywood while Neil needs to prove himself with his next venture…Robocop.
Official Secrets is Hoods new film, here is a short synopsis…”Based on the book The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, Official Secrets tells the true story of British secret-service officer Katharine Gun, who during the immediate run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq leaked a top-secret National Security Agency memo. The memo which exposed an illegal U.S.-U.K. spying operation against members of the United Nations Security Council proposed blackmailing smaller, undecided member states into voting for war.”
We are looking forward to Neills attempt at another Robocop. This movie will skip all the sequels that followed after the firs Robocop. It picks up from Robocop 1 which was my all time favourite. But it is make or break unfortunetly as Neills last film, Chppie was a bit of a flop, although Neill insists the audience didn’t understand it. His claim to fame was definitely “District 9” a Oscar nominated movie.
Hoods claim to fame was Totsie, and this film won Oscar for best Foreign Movie. It was an excellent movie, well shot, good acting and well directed.
