We've passed the aeronautical knowledge exam to become FAA [...]

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 [...]
