Live from the Dutch Hall: Filming a Podcast

As March approaches, new and interesting projects are in the works.

We started working with Pete Van Dyk to bring a video element to his podcast Live from the Dutch Hall.  It’s a podcast that’s definitely worth a listen as it touches on everything from the Quitting Your Job to the Female Orgasm and it’s all embedded with a rural Southern Ontario feel.  If you’re looking for a good laugh and some interesting insight, this is the podcast for you.

The topic of the pilot video episode was called The Wheel of Filth and the discussion was based around the change in Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum.  Pete’s challenge to himself and his guests was to make the cleanest “dirty” show he could.  We think he nailed it.

As for the video production, it was a challenging shoot because we needed to get coverage of 8 people within the limited space of Pete’s garage (The Dutch Hall).  To accomplish this we used 5 cameras and 2 GoPros plus three 1K LED lights.  We had to get creative with fitting all the camera gear, lights, and crew inside while still having room for Pete, his guests, and the infamous Wheel of Filth.

The video is currently in the works and will be available soon!

And to contrast Pete’s show, we’ve been working with 2 talented young upcoming veggie reviewers named Zack and Natalie (Dean’s kids).  There were extremely excited to hit the big screens of YouTube and let the world know their opinions on selected vegetables (and candy!).  Episode #2: The Pickle Saga, is in the works, but in the mean time you can check out Episode #1: The Grape Disguise – Oh and don’t forget to subscribe, you’ll be super happy you did!

Happy Anniversary!

This January we celebrated our third year in business.  To celebrate, we re-vamped our website using the Get Noticed theme for WordPress.  The Get Noticed theme was created by our client, Michael Hyatt.  Michael’s theme allowed us to create a custom look, showcase our videos, and keep an on-going blog so we can share updates and keep things fresh.  But that’s not all:

NEW WORK:

We’re proud to present our latest work, the first in a series of promotional videos for Haldimand County.

This “sizzle” video highlights some of the very best aspects of Haldimand County: nature, history, great food, and industry.  It really is in the ‘middle of everything’!

Happy New Year! Bring on 2015!!

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope your holidays were great and that you’re refreshed and ready to start the new year.  We sure are!

Our New Year started with a Live Web Broadcast (Webinar) for Michael Hyatt’s 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever launch.  Michael flew in from Nashville to join Stu McLaren for a live show about goal-setting, and we were asked to lend a creative hand by producing the show.
