DFES and Peaceful Bay the GMi Way!

Last Friday saw GMi taking a quick trip down to Peaceful Bay in our states beautiful Great Southern Region to do a shoot for the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).

 

The shoot was about recognizing the efforts of the Peaceful Bay Sea Rescue Group in a dramatic sea rescue operation over two days that they performed earlier in the year. The shoot was a lot of fun and Mark is looking forward to getting back into the both the Great Southern and the Southwest to further expand our library of drone vision!

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn in the City of Bunbury!

Summer has passed and without getting to hot which was nice for all the filming and droning around the state we have been doing (keep your eyes peeled to see some of that here soon!).

 

So since we are now in Autumn it’s probably time to show you the next video in the Bunbury Events line, this one covers the upcoming events in, yes you guessed it, Autumn.

The Boys are back in 2018!

So 2018 is finally here, we hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday break and is back ready to make some videos! We are kicking off the new year with more videos for the City of Bunbury, and the Southern Ports Authority.

 

Speaking of the City of Bunbury here is the latest video we produced for them about some of the things to do in the city this Summer!

We are also continuing our push into the world of 360 video and the new and exciting opportunities it offers our clients. Carl has also discovered the joys of of filming with gimbals, so much so the rest of us hardly get a look in!

Happy Holidays from GMi!

2017 is coming to a close and as we rapidly approach the end of year break, we here at GMi would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

We had a great year working on a range of projects around our great state and the world. Projects which saw the boys from GMi going to such locales as Dirk Hartog Island, Albany, loads of places in the beautiful South West, the Netherlands and Germany, before finishing the year in Esperance.

 

We are looking to getting back to it in 2018 and working with you on your next project wherever you may be! 2018 will see our new eLearning LMS coming on line, as well as a whole range of 360/VR video capabilities and production streams.

 

We wish you all a safe and happy new year and will see you in 2018, Happy Holidays!

Carl is off to the International Broadcast Convention (IBC) again!

The 2017 International Broadcast Convention (IBC 2017) is on again in Amsterdam and Carl will be once more jetting off to attend (much to Mark and Marks envy). IBC provides an opportunity for manufacturers to showcase their latest offerings in acquisition, post, storage, and broadcast media platforms.

From an production perspective, we have been creating and delivering UHD/4K content for nearly 4 years. In that time we built new 4k edit suites, acquired new 4k cameras, and a new 4k drone. We are not going to stop there we have our eyes on even more 4k cameras, and Carl will be looking at all the latest offerings from Sony, Panasonic, Canon, and Blackmagic Design.

New areas we are expanding into are 360video and Virtual Reality acquisition and continuing our push in delivering custom LMS content. Carl will be keeping a close eye out for IBC vendors in these fields and both the Marks are keen to see what 360 gear he looks at.

Stay tuned when Carl returns we will find out what he learned at IBC 2017!

ABC Landline and the Blackwood Basin Group

Recently the ABC aired a story on its Landline program about the work being undertaken by the Blackwood Basin Group and Talison Lithium to turn old open cut pits into wetlands for rare and endangered bird life and native fish species.

GEO Media interactive (GMi) has been documenting the project over a few years now and was happy to help by providing vision to help tell the story. Congratulations to both the Blackwood Basin Group and Talison Lithium for the spectacular work done converting the area!

GMi working with the community.

 

As you probably already know GMi has been working closely with community groups to help spread the word of the fantastic conservation projects they work on. We here at GMi are pleased to welcome the Leschenault Catchment Council to the growing number of groups we assist here in Western Australia.

Quokka Forest

They join our conservation clients list which also includes the Australian branch of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the Department of Parks and Wildlife, and the Blackwood Basin Group (BBG). The BBG has just opened their latest conservation success to the public the creation of a wetlands haven at Schwenkes Dam.

This new wetland is part of the Priority Bittern and Waterbird Biodiversity Enhancement Project.

Eye in the sky with GMi – Meet the Mavic pro

The boys here at GMi have got another drone!

 

This time we have selected the latest from DJI: the Mavic Pro. This is a truly incredible drone capable of some amazing things. It has a 27 minute flight time, is so compact it fits into a backpack and has the ability to fly indoors. INDOORS!!!… Oh and the pictures look great too, both inside, and out in the field at 4K!

 

We have been having a lot of fun here in the office with that feature and are truly amazed with what this new kit can achieve. If you would like to talk to us about what it can do for you and your project drop us a line here we would love to hear from you! Even if its just to talk about drones! Drones that fly INDOORS!!!
