Video Production in Mesquite Nevada

30. May 2010

We went to Mesquite Nevada in May to shoot a promotional video showing all the great things there are to do there.  While we were there, the Desert Valley Times wrote an article about what we where doing.  The article explains how Bryan Dangerfield saw what a great job we did on the Elko Promotional video and wanted one for Mesquite.  A couple of interesting quotes from Bryan in the article are:

"The shots were just amazing, especially the ones from the air," he said.  "I wondered how they could afford that kind of aerial photography - I know what helicopter times cost."

"They can put together films that look far more expensive than they are," said Dangerfield.

The shoot went great.  A few behind the scenes pictures are included below.  To see some of the great aerial video we got be sure see the Cool Shots - Mesquite blog entry.  The final promotional video will be posted in our tourism portfolio once it has been completed.

Man Expo

2. May 2010

The inaugural Man Expo took place at the end of April in the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy UT. We were there to cover the activities and produce a promotional video of the event which you can see HERE.


The expo was a lot of fun and included cars that you could smash with a sledge hammer, mechanical bull riding, jousting, body builders, an MMA ring with demonstration fights, arm wrestling contest, and much more. They also had an indoor skate park. We were able to get our helicopters up over the skate park to film some of the action (you can see it in the video). The first night was wrapped up with a concert by Skid Row.

We covered the expo and we also had a booth there. We decked the booth in retro camera equipment from the Utah Film Commission and showed off a few helicopters along with our new camera mount. The show was great for us and we met a lot people and good business contact.

The picture below shows the booth with one of our helicopters on top of the new camera mount.

Cool Shots - Newport Beach California

1. May 2010

We were recently in New Port Beach California doing some real estate work. It was the first job we did with our new camera mount. As you can see from the video below, the camera mount works great! The shots are some of the smoothest we have ever gotten. The clip below is a quick compilation of some of the shots we got while down there. It includes some shots that were taken at the beach just after the sun went down.
