ESPN Superbowl XLIX Promo Shoot and the FreeFly Systems MoVI

Last night we had an awesome time shooting a new Superbowl XLIX promotional video at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona! The production hired us to use our MoVI camera stabilizer to help them get some great shots of their talent entering the field. We loaded up our MoVI with a bunch of awesome equipment. Here is a quick picture of our setup:

The MoVI was loaded with the following:

– RED EPIC PL Mount
– Super Speed Ultra Primes (18mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm)
– Bartech Wireless Follow-Focus
– ARRI 4×5 Matte Box
– Microphone for audio Sync
– RED Touch Screen
– Paralinx Wireless HD Video Link

We powered the EPIC via a V-Mount battery which I wore on my belt. I ran a long, custom built cable to the EPIC to allow us to run the camera for longer periods of time then you would get if you just used the side-handle. I also was powering the MoVI via a large (5,000mAh 4s) lipo battery. We shot for 7 hours and only changed the battery once, and that was during the last 30 minutes of the shoot. I had this battery in a pocket as well to help keep the weight down on the MoVI.

The shoot went really really well. We literally did every shot that evening on the MoVI. This allowed the shoot to move on quicker due to not needing to setup and tear down other camera movement systems.

Here is a quick shot of myself operating the MoVI in the tunnel right before a take. I can’t wait to see the final promo!

Owl & Penny: Candy Teeth Music Video

Here is the latest music video we had the privilege of working on. The video was produced by Red Arrow Productions. They asked Birds Eye Productions about getting some aerial shots to push the video to the next level of production value. The location that was chosen was a beautiful place near the mountains east of Phoenix Arizona.

For this shoot we were flying our large heavy-lift copter carrying a Canon 5dMKII.
