27 Aug Deep Flow and Wheel of Yoga now on DVD: A Smush Media and Studio B Films Co-Production

Namaste! After spending a weekend filming with world-renowned yoga instructor David Moreno, our chakras are aligned and we feel better than ever. Our friends and colleagues at Smush Media invited us to co-produce a duo of instructional yoga videos and we were thrilled to join them. This is the third yoga video Studio B has produced and the process is always an enjoyable (and rejuvenating) one. Despite some similarities, each instructional fitness video is a different experience with distinctive needs. Meeting the challenge of creating a unique and dynamic video that is suitable for its niche has taught us a…

23 Jul Broadcasting Live from Your Backpack with the Tricaster TCDX300: Studio B Films now offers multicamera HD webcasting

New toy! One of our latest additions is the Tricaster TCDX300 and we were psyched last April when we had the chance to try it out on our fellow nerds at the Twitter Chirp Conference. This amazing little black box is small but mighty: it has the power of network-style TV broadcasting, jammed in its 20lb body – so light in can fit in your backpack. It’s completely self- contained and we were able to live cut a three-camera shoot of Twitter’s live event. These portable tricasters are really revolutionizing the capacity of independent production companies to offer a higher…

19 Feb Studio B shoots Meat!

Would you believe me if I told you we shot meat for two days? Well, we did. We spent two days in a studio shooting artisan deli meats: salamis, prosciuttos… for Columbus. As you can imagine, we sampled the delicious fare. This is an example of one of the many point of purchase videos we have produced.  This one in particular is all about appetite appeal and will show on a large screen at your local deli counter. Did I say we love food shoots!

19 Feb Studio B does Science

Recently, Studio B has been shooting science and we’re getting smarter by the day. The Chabot Science Center contacted us about making a DVD for their science afterschool program for girls, Techbridge. Studio B shot a series of three curriculum DVDs that teach circuitry, environmental science and the science of design for girls. We played with catapults, blinking robots and learned about green building materials. Also, we recently shot a video with renowned Neuroscientist, Robert Knight. Dr. Knight presented an overview of the field of neuroscience for a general audience. The video lecture is informative and answers many common questions…
