Moore fun with Macro!

Jumping Spider Mark M has been running around testing out some of the new GMi Macro equipment, and has come back with some stills and vision of some of the tiny inhabitants of his garden.

 

What he is really looking forward to is getting out into the scrub and better yet underwater to find some really interesting specimens! Especially the great Nudi’s and Blennies that reside in the southwest! In the meantime expect to see some great macro shots in some of our upcoming productions.

9 Years today, Mark M celebrates another year with GMi!

Mark M LG9 years ago today GMi’s Mark Moore joined GMi’s ranks as our camera man in a day full of memories, shenanigans, and ultimately hypnosis.  It was a day fondly remembered by all the staff here past and present. In that 9 years Mark has shown no desire to leave the good ship GMi (the hypnosis must of worked then… or possibly it has failed horribly) and has grown (quite literally!) with the business and helped it become one of WA’s best small production houses.

Originally Mark thought he would only be with us for a couple of years before moving back to Perth but when he discovered just how good the Southern Lifestyle is, there was no turning back. So instead we now find him not in some cramped newsroom in a city rushing for a deadline, but instead swanning around our great state filming all sorts of interesting things for us, and spending time with his wife and new son in a place he now certainly calls home.

Congratulations Mark, we’ll try and get rid of you next year, surely we will have found a way by then!

Gateway WA

IMG_4108GEO Media Interactive are documenting a new major infrastructure and roadworks construction project. This time the project is the $1 billion dollar Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Access Project.

Gateway WA is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by Main Roads WA and aims to improve the safety and efficiency of one of the State’s most important transport hubs, where road, rail and air services connect.  GMi is providing video and photography services to be used for their website, a corporate video showing the construction, banners, and posters for the project, and in TV and print media.

 

IMG_4121The crew here are looking forward to getting into some of the sites to shoot industrial timelapses which always come up great in videos.

GMi and DPaW (formerly DEC)

IMG_4936GMi have again been recently working with the Department of Parks and Wildlife or DPaW (formerly DEC) filming the plight of the critically endangered Woylie.  The Woylie also known as the brush-tailed bettong, is an extremely rare small marsupial which was once found over most of Australia but is now found in only a handfull of places.

The crew here at GMi have been filming the stellar work being done by the teams at DPaW to try and bring the Woylie back from the brink of extinction. Filming has so far taken place at the Perup Wildlife Sanctuary near Manjimup which acts to keep an area predator free for the Woylies to breed in and in the Dryandra Woodlands near Narrogin with further filming to take place over the coming months.

GMi are thrilled to be working again with DPaW on yet another project, we love being a fly on the wall documenting the conservation of some of our nations most endangered species. Stay tuned for the release of our latest video done with the department: Operation Rangelands. A story about the Lorna Glen Sanctuary and the animals that are being brought back from the verge of ruin.

GMi and the Prime Minister at the City East Opening

Prime Minister Julia Gillard With the completion of works by the City East Alliance Project, the team at GMi was there to capture the opening of the upgraded Great Eastern Highway by Prime Minister Julia Gillard. It was a proud day for everyone involved in the project seeing traffic flow freely along the upgraded highway and meeting the Prime Minister just added to it.

GMi provided high quality video and photography services across the project as well as contributing to the CEA website design. The videos were used extensively by media outlets producing stories about the project and in a corporate documentary about the upgrade, while the photos were used for the web, banners, posters and billboards, and in newspaper articles.

Clare Bug hunt Department of Environment and Conservation GMi

The crew at GMi have stayed in touch with the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) scientists working on the Fire Mosaic research project near Walpole in the South West of WA.  Our youngest team member, Carl‘s daughter Clare, was invited to take part in the catching and classification of the bugs and became DEC’s youngest volunteer entomologist.

After spending a few days with the crew of science division Clare can boast finding 6, so far, unclassified species of moth, 1 new beetle and an all new wasp!

GMi’s favourite new word… Bokehlicious

canon, 7d, GMi's, new, DSLRGMi have joined the legions of Bokeh fans with their purchase of a new canon 7D. When coupled with GMi’s ever increasing collection of fast glass the images we have been getting are impressive to say the least. Whilst some of us are sad to see ‘old faithful’ (40D) put out to pasture we are more excited about the 7d’s capability to capture Full HD video.

 

This allows us to have our lightest and most compact HD camera setup yet,  which is great for getting to those shoots where the gear allotment is severely restricted. Shoots such as trips to remote mine sites where access is light plane FIFO, or for wildlife shoots where long treks on foot and fast setup are essential.GMi Dragonfly
