Buried with Black Satellite

By | Blog | No Comments

We found ourselves in the Pennsylvania woods just outside of State College while filming another scene for Black Satellite’s up and coming music video.  This time, vocalist Larissa Vale wanted to confront an inner fear of being buried alive and we couldn’t wait to turn it into some movie magic.  The setting was perfect as fall had just started in Pennsylvania and leaves littered the ground adding to the look and feel of each clip.  With the help of a fog machine and two stage lights set up just behind some trees, we were able to get some great shadows while enhancing that eerie feel. Safety was always at the forefront for our crew as we could see in Larissa’s eyes that the fear involved with this scene was real.  A huge shoutout to her as she mentally pushed through being completely covered in dirt until each shot was captured perfectly.  Only a few more scenes to knock out and we will be editing this one up.

Keep your eyes open for their new video, dropping soon!

Shooting Underwater with the Sony RX100 Mark 5

By | Blog | No Comments

We were overly excited when Black Satellite, a very talented band based out of New York City approached us to shoot a second music video. Band members Larissa Vale and Kyle Hawken always bring creative vision, great ideas and think outside of the box when it comes to the things they would like to capture.  One of the ideas discussed involved some underwater shooting in a Pennsylvania lake.  While Pennsylvania has some beautiful waterways and it’s lakes are very beautiful we knew that we wouldn’t be dealing with the crystal clear water of the Caribbean and that we would likely encounter some interesting low light situations.  We quickly grabbed the Sony RX100 Mark 5 and knew it was the perfect sized tool for the job with it’s low profile design, wide dynamic range and 4K video capabilities.  There’s just one problem. If you’re like us, putting any camera under water makes your heart skip a beat.  In comes the Sony Underwater Housing for the RX100 Series Cameras which features water tight dual gaskets and has a depth rating of up to 130 feet.  While we had no intention of diving that deep the housing gave us peace of mind and a design that offered easy access to all our camera’s controls.

Ultimately we were blown away by the shots we were able to capture with this versatile camera and can’t wait to show you the final video.  Until then, check out a few behind the scene shots from our day on the lake.

A special Thank You to Black Satellite for trusting us with their video projects.
