SHOOTING IN STUDIO

By | March 21st, 2017|Categories: Production|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

Glass Eye Productions, Inc. filmed a shoot for a medical device in our studio, utilizing our small video insert stage with hard cyc for a new client. Our location made the shoot more cost-effective for our client. Glass Eye was able to provide a low-cost solution by keeping the production within a one-day shoot. Our biggest challenge was the size of the medical equipment, weighing 3500 pounds. Delivery and placement were key to utilizing our smaller studio in a big way. We shot with our new Red Epic-W S35 camera in 8K to further ensure that our clients would receive the best product possible. Click the link below to see the exciting shoot.

LOCATION SCOUTING

By | December 20th, 2016|Categories: Production, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

At Glass Eye Productions, Inc., we value the location scouting process and do everything in our power to find the location for shoots that will help create the best footage. One of the most important but not totally obvious aspects of pre-production is location scouting. This is the process of traveling to a location to determine if it should or should not be used in a particular shoot, or to see what can be changed to make the place more flattering for a shoot. Even though the location of a shoot becomes a background detail to viewers, it can stand out in a negative way if it doesn’t fit the needs of the scene. At Glass Eye Productions, Inc., we value the location scouting process and do everything in our power to find the location for shoots that will help create the best footage. Some shoots don’t require location scouting, but for those that [...]

A LOOK INTO TIME-LAPSE

By | August 23rd, 2016|Categories: Production|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

A lot of work goes into a time-lapse shoot, since the videographer is required to take many pictures in a specific spot for a long period of time, constantly monitoring the lighting and camera functions. These shoots usually take a few hours or even a full day, making it necessary to have a highly focused and dedicated videographer on the job. Since the location on a time-lapse video usually does not change, the videographer must pay extra attention to detail to make sure that the footage is consistent and high quality throughout the day. Glass Eye was tasked to demonstrate the intense process that John Deere utilized to build a full-scale combine made from canned foods that were later donated to a local food bank. Time-lapse was the only true way to show the build from start to finish. Watch the series here on YouTube. Even though this practice is fairly common, it never [...]

A LOOK INTO PRODUCING: PRE-PRODUCTION

By | August 9th, 2016|Categories: Production|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

There are three stages to every production, which are pre-production, production and post production. In this blog post we will focus on the pre-production phase. Preparing: Preparing for a TV spot, shoot or any other type of major on-location production can be daunting. It is important to focus on every aspect of the production prior to the shoot. The pre-production phase is where great planning pays off big later in the production. Initially our projects at Glass Eye will usually start with a shooting date and a rough script. The script will generally be honed throughout the pre-production process. Sometimes, the client will maintain that aspect of the project and other times it is our job to work on it as the scriptwriters. But the core idea is usually enough to start our planning. Once we know the location, it is helpful to storyboard the entire shoot. We can do this through a combination [...]

A LOOK INTO BEHIND THE SCENES: LUCY’S DREAM

By | July 19th, 2016|Categories: Production|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Fresh off our edit bay: Glass Eye Productions produced, shot, and edited a multi-region commercial TV spot for John Deere, the largest agricultural machinery company in the world. The spot was shot on an organic farm location in Moorpark, CA. Glass Eye Productions handled the entire production process including location scouting and casting. The in-house advertising team in Olathe, Kansas, created the script. We really liked the concept and story and felt it connected with a segment of their consumer base that often gets overlooked. The campaign has been very successful for John Deere, and our Glass Eye crew feels fortunate to have been a part of it. Lucy’s Dream Storyline Lucy has always dreamed of owning her own business. She knows about produce, but not about horsepower. The John Deere 3E tractor is easy to work with and provides the support Lucy needs to fulfill her dreams. Click for an exclusive look – [...]

A LOOK INTO TRAVEL: ON LOCATION

By | May 20th, 2016|Categories: Production, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

At Glass Eye Productions, we have been fortunate enough to be sent on production shoots in destinations such as New Zealand, Canada, Europe, and of course, almost every state in the U.S. Along with the excitement a location shoot can bring, there are many aspects to be considered before traveling with a crew and extensive gear. Small hiccups can often cause big issues when you are on the road. For this reason, the team members at Glass Eye Productions pride ourselves on taking extra precautions so that travel problems do not have an effect on our work. Location shoots that involve air travel bring an additional level of complexity to projects. Traveling with video production gear is tricky. TSA rules, airline baggage requirements, and poorly handled customs can all send a production shoot into a tailspin. Glass Eye has learned, through experience and keeping abreast of changing requirements, the ins and outs of these [...]
