GH4 Vlog vs A7Rii and other GH4 profiles

Dave Dugdale was performing a review on the Sony A7Rii, he wanted to match it up against my Red Epic. In the meantime, Panasonic has released their new V-Log profile for the GH4 cameras for a mere $99 USD and I was anxious to give it a test run. Below are the direct from camera grabs. All profiles dialed down to -5 contrast.

We Found Lisa Frank video


Recently we were hired by CNN to film an interview with Lisa Frank, an artist any girl growing up in the 90’s would know of. The piece gathered a huge 3 million views in just the first few days it was released!

See it at the original link:

A very cool piece and we were privileged to partner with CNN on this. We showed up with our grip truck package and provided camera and support services.

We have had the great opportunity to work with Sports Illustrated over the past years in Denver (well, Broomfield in this case) and they came back to us again to film a story on their ongoing series, “High School Athlete of the Month”. In this story, we follow Porter Milner who has an impressive soccer tactic that led his team to two state championships. Check out our work below!

Here’s the original posting link:

Northern Colorado Credit Union TV Commercial

We were privileged to work with Northern Colorado Credit Union on their first television spot airing in 2016!

NCCU’S mission: “Our hope is to educate the public about the difference between a bank and a credit union. At credit union’s our customers are members and part-owners, which results in fewer fees and lower rates. It also means that members come first!

Northern Colorado Credit Union has been a part of the Greeley Community since 1935 and we are dedicated to serving the people and organizations that make Northern Colorado a great place to live!”

Definitely an exciting project, we look forward to helping them enhance and grow their great brand!

Very proud of the team coming together on this spot and working hard to make it happen on a tight deadline and all with high levels of execution and with happy clients!

Contact us today if you’re considering growing your brand presence through video in Colorado or nationwide!

DJI – The Comeback


We were privileged to work with DJI on this story of Steven McCutcheon, a snowboarder with an incredible story that is now working his way towards the next winter Olympics.

This project was shot up in Steamboat Springs Colorado with a highly talented crew of people from companies Cloudgate, Outskirt Films, and Hello Airbot.

We shot primarily on Canon C100 MK2’s and two Inspire One drones, but there was also a GH4 on a Ronin-M, and an A7s I believe captured a few shots as well.

Rodney Atkins Music Video

We were priviledged to work with Colormatics out of New York City on this music video for Rodney Atkins. We shot a series of two music videos while in Florence Alabama. Below is part one of the video:

One interesting note on this shoot was how frigid it was during the production! It was probably 20 or 25 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill at some points and we had to stage that it was warm.

Worked with a really great grip team out of Alabama, shot on Red Epic with a mix of some really great aerials shot on the DJI Inspire
