TNDV Emphasizes A La Carte Approach to Mobile Production As Next-Gen Formats Develop

TNDV became one of the first mobile production companies with an SD/HD/3D truck when Aspiration first appeared in 2011.  However, owner Nic Dugger quickly recognized that the 3D element would play a nominal role in his productions at best.  And as the broadcast and production industry awaits the true arrival of the next-generation format, he is maximizing opportunities for clients through creative, customized solutions that leverage cutting-edge technologies within temporary, cost-effective packages.

Sachtlers Video 20 S1 and Speed Lock CF Tripod speeds the way for Freddie Wongs Video Game High School Web Series
Everything Freddie Wong touches these days turns to gold. A filmmaker, musician, VFX technician and competitive gamer, he has created game-changing productions that draw millions of viewers on three wildly popular YouTube Channels freddiew, freddiew2 and Node. So, when he took his hit web series, Video Game High School, into its second season, he upped the anti. We knew we were going to do a couple of firsts for web projects, he says. As far as we can tell we are the first web series to release TV length episodes as well as the first web series to shoot at 48 frames-per-second. Season 2 consists of six 30-minute long episodes.

From Features to Commercials, One Constant for Koretz is Petrol Bags Posted: 19/11/2013
From Features to Commercials, One Constant for Koretz is Petrol Bags
Whether cinematographer Eric Koretz is prepping for his recent feature Comet, directed by Sam Esmail, or commercials for Motorola and American Airlines, the one constant for him is Petrol Bags, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. Often these shoots involve heavy traveling, Koretz says. One thing I dont have to worry about is the condition of my equipment as we move because its always packed in my Petrol Bags. I chose them because they are simply versatile, have unique features and are well built.

Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE Posted: 15/11/2013
Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE
For alternative rock band MUSEs 2nd Law World Tour, cinematographer Matt Hayslett needed to choose his equipment carefully in order to keep up with fast-paced life on the road. The Grammy-winning group, which has played for packed houses in its native England and throughout Europe, is currently touring North America. Some of MUSEs most recent hits include Survival, the theme song for the London Summer Games, and Madness, the theme song for TBS/TNTs March Madness, for which the group broke the record for Billboards longest #1 alternative airplay song. For its latest endeavor, MUSE selected Hayslett to film a documentary about life on tour. The band really wanted to invite fans behind the scenes for the first time, at the height of their career, Hayslett explains. Since Id shot the trailer and video material for their album release, with the blessing of Warner Bros. Records, they brought me in to do just that. For the world tour, I needed a tripod that could support a wide range of camera rigs and be able to keep up with our busy schedule. The Sachtler Ace M fluid head and tripod fit the bill, he says. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. In addition to capturing the behind-the-scenes footage, Hayslett shot the live visuals that the audience watches at the show. There is nothing like seeing your videos on the big screen with an amazing performance and incredible lighting, he comments.

OConnor Helps Chema Wrangle a Real Cow for Backyard Burger Spot Posted: 15/10/2013
OConnor Helps Chema Wrangle a Real Cow for Backyard Burger Spot
While filming his second commercial spot for the upscale fast-food Southeast-based company, Backyard Burger, Jon Chema faced both a tight budget and the challenge of wrangling a real live untrained cow. When I saw the storyboards, I saw that we would be shooting at the top of an overlook as morning fog rolled in and the sun rose on our location outside of Nashville. I realized the cow wasnt going to stand still, so I had to have a set-up that was steady and mobile at the same time. Thats why OConnors 1030D, O-Box, O-Grips and Follow Focus supporting our RED Epic with Zeiss Super Speed lenses was simply a must. OConnor is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
