After the Video Shoot

After being on a few sets with Skillman Video Group, a Boston video marketing company, I have learned as an intern why it is so important to have advanced equipment on each project. There were a couple pieces of production equipment that were very important to the day that SVG used while shooting enabling better film quality. Every film site can require different gear to make the Boston video production that much better and here at SVG, we make sure that our video production services meet any environments needs.

Boston video production

Microphone set up

At one particular Boston video production shoot that SVG was hired to film, our Boston videographer Chuck Green used various forms of microphone equipment to capture excellent sounds quality. Though it may seem normal to have several microphones in play to capture the interview recording, its important equipment like this that makes or breaks specific shoots. One of the microphones used was a mounted boom poll, which was set up right in front of the interviewee but out of the frame. The second one used was a lavaliere microphone that was attached to the collar of the subject being interviewed. These two forms equipment helped amplify the sound recording enabling a better quality to work with in postproduction.

Steady Camera Suit

Steady Camera Suit

Several weeks later I was on set at a Boston video production site that SVG was hired to film. This was a big warehouse full of large equipment making a set up traditional camera very difficult to maneuver. Luckily the camera used that day was mounted on a steady camera suit. This enabled the cameraman to quickly adjust his position while filming but still providing a smooth, steady shot. This suit was like an armor that was strapped on to the cameraman and was pretty heavy after 4 hours of filming. But the major benefit was the mobility that is permitted. The shots for that specific Boston video production were clean and fluid with the movement of the technology being recorded. Our post-production team will have plenty of material to work with when working with specific client all thanks to the handy camera suit.

There is a lot of fancy equipment available this day and age and technology is only getting better. Focusing on the necessities that make a shoot better for the client and our Boston production company are a key factor as to why we at SVG are prepared for all types of productions. When it comes to the day of filming, you can rely on the equipment and the production team to ensure a great final product.
