Fulfilling Needs

I started in 1999 freelancing with E! Entertainment TV as a videographer covering
BTS on movie sets, junkets, TCAs, red carpet arrivals, special events, Live Events,  corporate and industrial training, and education, long-form documentary-style shooting in Los Angeles and Hollywood

It goes without saying, we use pro-high-definition camera equipment including the Panasonic AG-CX350 4K Camcorder, Panasonic GH4, 4K cinema camera, as well as GoPros / GoPro Max 360 and professional audio equipment including shotgun mics and UHF wireless microphones.
Occasionally we bring our small yet awesome GH4/GH7 camera for portrait-style talking head videos and use the Panasonic CX-350 for run and gun, ENG, and general-purpose shooting.

Among our lighting gear, we use round LED edge light panels for professional studio lighting both in-house and in the field.
Another specialty we specialize in is professional high-quality editing.

Serving Los Angeles, Hollywood, and beyond the TMZ, Thirty Mile Zone. So let us give you a quote if you are looking for a freelance video film crew for BTS, that is, shooting behind the scenes on your next film, video/project whether it be a Hollywood press junket or an on-location or studio set environment.
