Some of the footage we shot in October 2012. Various views of New York, from helicopters, boats, cars and even a static shot here and there. Post produced in our in-house facility in Kuala Lumpur using Resolve, Premiere and After Effects.
Allow us to present our latest showreel, a lot of which was shot in the USA during the latter half of 2013. Locations include Truk Lagoon, which is in the middle of the Pacific, Kota Kinabalu, New York, Chicago, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and lots of other interesting and scenic places.
Earlier in 2012 I got played the part of camera owner/operator on this nice commercial for Maruti cars, the Indian subsidiary of Suzuki. It was a very international production, shot in Sabah, with Biscuit Films of KL leading the local side, Equinox Films of Mumbai, India bringing the Director, DOP and a large crew. Lots of fun and a very nice product at the end of the day.
So we kick off the new year with a delightful portrait that Paul put together while picking up a new guitar, converted with a Stringbender by the gentleman who is the subject of this video, Gene Parsons.
Gene has led quite a life, that includes being one of the original drummers of famous rock band The Byrds, along with his own solo career and a lifetime spent bending metal to his will. This portrait was shot in his workshop and home in Mendocino, California. Gene is a lovely guy and we think that the sparkle in his eye comes across.
Travelling up from the West Coast of the USA we arrived in Vancouver, Canada. My friend, Rod, owns a great little store that helps people brew their own wine - and it's very tasty stuff, too. So we spent a little time making a short for him to use on local TV and his own website. Shot with the Red and edited in Premiere over a two day period in August 2012.
