Tuscany LRT Public Art Project

We are excited to be working with the City of Calgary Public Art Department to video the installation of ‘roger that’. A two, 12 metre-high sculptures, situated on either side of Crowchild Trail. The video will document the process and will include an interview with the artist, Bill Pechet.  “Bill is the lead artist at PECHET Studio, an interdisciplinary practice based in Vancouver, Canada. In all their work, they are committed to developing environments that bridge art and imagination with everyday life, and they are dedicated to the idea that public space must be designed to offer a depth of experiential and playful encounter.” (City of Calgary/Public Art).

I’ve been working on a new infographic for Design Cause over the past few days and am finally happy with the result. It is being used to promote our extended line of video services which include: personal, business, real estate, arts and culture, sports and non-profit solutions.

We are now on the hunt for new clients. If you have a project on the go you would like professionally shot or edited, send us a message through our contact page.

Canon EOS C100

After a lot of research and deliberation on whether or not to buy into 4K video technology (what some people are calling the future of video), I made my decision on what to buy based on the following criteria:

  1. Better pixels vs more pixels.
  2. Cost of camera and additional equipment
  3. Overall intent of use.

After a few late nights researching Twitter, YouTube and Google for everything I could find on the subject, I finally came to the conclusion that 4K video (4000 pixels wide) wasn’t worth the cost at this point (2013), especially when television networks only embraced HD technology a year ago. Sure, the movie industry needs it for the big screen, but I’m not shooting for the big screen. I’m shooting for the YouTube audience who watches video on the computer, tablets, phones, and hopefully soon, Apple’s long anticipated television set.

In the end, the camera I ended up buying is Canon’s EOS C100 with the Sony Nex FS100 coming a close second.

Canon EOS C100

Here’s why I chose the Canon EOS 100:

  • Amazing image quality using the CMOS image censor.
  • Ergonomics of the camera.
  • Interchangeable lenses
  • XLR audio
  • Amazing low light capabilities
  • Price

Unfortunately, the canon, doesn’t shoot at 1080/60p, fortunately we can work around this using software like Twixtor.
