  • Sony FS700 – We’re excited to welcome a new camera to our lineup

    Ever since the Canon 5D Mark ii was released and allowed filmmakers to shoot beautifully filmic images with shallow depth of field, it’s opened up a whole new way to create and tell moving stories.

    High definition television production for a Miami hospital.

    Shooting outdoors all day in Miami during the early summer isn’t the smartest idea but when the script calls for it, we’re there.
