Congratulations Gateway WA!

We here at GMi would like to congratulate everyone involved on the Gateway WA project for recently hitting the halfway point milestone recently.  This is an important milestone for WA’s largest ever road project. As you can see from a few of the videos on the Gateway WA website the work is progressing nicely on the $1 billion project designed to improve the safety and efficiency of one of the state’s most important transport hubs.

A Game of Drones – GMi’s new aerial filming platform!

Exciting times at GMi as we commence building our 4K RC drone.

Custom made – by us – it will support new 4K cameras. Why custom make it?  Well it comes down to flexibility of use – we want a drone that has added safety features, can carry a variety of payloads and can support new improvements in batteries, motors and cameras as they are released.

So having scoped the requirements and components needed it was off to the workshop to commence building, testing and configuring.  Bring together the lifelong hobby of RC building and flying and skills in electronic implementation, our tech nerds (read Carl and Peter!) spent a week building.

We are now into the configuration and test flying phase whilst developing operating procedures and safety guidelines.  The aim of the project is to prepare the way for the next drone – capable of lifting much heavier camera rigs.  It will be coming soon too!

Prescribed Burning videos go live!

GMi and the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) have been working together recently to produce a series of short videos for social media platforms about DPaWs prescribed burning program.

The videos explore the history of fire in Western Australia, the action of fire on bushland, why and how the department carries out prescribed burns to protect communities and wildlife, and the landscape’s recovery from fire.

Would you like some toast?…

Acquisition is important and at GMi we have seen some fantastic new toys in our camera department over the last 4 years. However, shots are only half the picture, editing is the rest of the story – your story. And if you ask our Post team – it is the most important part of the story!

 

To enable us to keep bringing you the best in Post means we are constantly evaluating when to upgrade and 2014 is it for Post, with the building and commissioning of our new Avid workstation.

 

By combining workstation grade components, the new Thunderbolt 2 RAID interface, dedicated on-board RAID and the latest from nVidia Quadro video cards we are able to install the latest editor from Avid – Media Composer 8.1, cutting edge compositing with Boris RED 5.5 as well as the more well known Adobe tool box of post applications.

 

With data access speeds capable of multiple tracks of simultaneous 4K playback and blistering render times, we see this platform as the basis of Post at GMi for the next 3 years.

 

We are excited – come in and see us for a coffee and chat about your next production using one of the few Avid Edit Stations outside the metro area, and find out why 99% of all motion picture production is done on an Avid!

7D 1000mm and GMi

GMi has recently added to its diverse equipment collection with addition of a new 1000mm Super Telephoto lens. Married up to a state of the art aluminum SLR camera cage, high definition field monitor and our beloved Canon 7D camera GMi is now able to undertake those incredible wildlife shoots in full HD.

 

With a magnification significantly greater than our previous best lens, this rig is already producing spectacular wildlife video. Using the latest in post production image stabilization from Avid Media Composer and Adobe After Effects we are able to use the lens to its maximum magnification, shooting wildlife at 200m or more with superb clarity. The addition of our specially sourced dedicated field monitor and rail system allows for greater focus control and quick setup.

 

Look out for the results in documentaries we are producing now – we are excited, and we hope you will be too!
