13 Dec Studio B Goes Mobile: Producing Video for Mobile Apps

With so many great new mobile apps and digital publications hitting the market, the calls have been pouring in to Studio B from developers looking to produce dynamic product demo videos for their new applications. Our first adventure in mobile app publishing was a video we produced with Adobe for WIRED Magazine. This snappy, fast-paced 60-sec video allowed WIRED to illustrate how the digital edition of their magazine (as seen on the Ipad) has all the visual impact of its paper version, enhanced by interactive video and animated infographics. Here’s what WIRED magazine had to say about the opportunity digital…

27 Aug Studio B and Recology Produce Engaging Instructional Video to Save the Planet…one bin at a time

Waste not, want not. For the last few weeks, it’s been nothing but paper, plastic, aluminum and glass here at Studio B with our latest instructional video project for Recology, (previously NorCal Waste Systems), Northern California’s refuse and waste management system. These guys are industry leaders and were one of the first urban recycling centers in the nation. They recently implemented composting and single-stream recycling, and needed a series of training videos to effectively educate the public and prospective clients on how it all works – What goes in which color bin? What is recyclable and what is compostable? How…

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.

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…

07 May Finding the right videographer for your video production

Pulling together the right video crew is a key element to the success of your video production.  If you have ever shot in an unfamiliar city, you probably know that it can be especially challenging and intimidating to find a good crew.  At the heart of any production crew is the videographer or Director of Photographer (DP or in England D.O.P).  When crewing-up, I suggest starting with a well suited videographer and then let that videographer select the sound and lighting personal.  Most likely the videographer has a good sense of the production landscape of the city and has folks…

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!
