Filming in the New Normal
At the time of writing, the New Zealand Government is expected to announce a move to reduce restrictions that had previously put a stop to all filming not connected to major news outlets.
It is anticipated that small-scale filming / video projects will be permitted very shortly, albeit ensuring certain strict criteria is adhered.
Therefore, in response to enquiries from several clients, both here in New Zealand and overseas, I am offering a contactless video shooting service.
If you would like to know more, please contact me today.
What is Contactless Filming?
This is a service whereby I can attend a specified location as required. Using my own cameras, lighting and sound equipment, I can direct and shoot a piece to camera without the need for any other crew members. Strict health, safety and hygiene guidelines will be adhered.
Safe distancing is assured: I can use high quality, long lenses, directional microphones (removing the need for lapel mics) and battery-powered lighting.
What about Remote Directing?
As an experienced self-shooting producer, I am able to direct and shoot the entire sequence independently. However, If you wish to oversee the shoot live, I can arrange remote monitoring. This enables you to view the shoot in real-time - via video conferencing apps such as Zoom or Skype - to provide input and direction if required.
Post-Production Service Availability?
Once the video shoot is complete, I can edit the footage into a final piece, incorporating graphics, sound and animation. Alternatively, I can upload the footage for third party editing.
What will the quality be like?
Using broadcast-quality cameras and a full kit, the content will be of high standard, suitable for multi-use. I can shoot in 4k if required, enabling for cropping in the edit suite.
This is an ever-changing landscape, with developments happening daily. As such I welcome suggestions and feedback. If you’d like to know more, please contact me.
