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!

South32 Worsley Alumina Animation Project

The team at GMi have been doing more animated production! This time it’s a training video for the South32 operation Worsley Alumina.

As usual we can’t show the clips made for our industry clients but we can show an example piece of the artwork used. This production incorporated animation, 4k drone and traditional video and interviews together and it was a pleasure to be back working with South32 again!

Recycling is the Key!

The boys at GMi have been working closely with the City of Bunbury on a number of projects recently and our latest video continues that trend! The latest production is an animated educational video showing what can and can’t be placed inside each of the three kerbside pickup bins the City of Bunbury provides. These bins are the FOGO Bin (green lid – food and garden waste), Recycling Bin (yellow lid – recyclable materials), and the Landfill Bin (red lid – everything else).

 

Check out the video!

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!

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!!!

WWF and the Quokka

GMi teams up with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to search the southern forests for the elusive mainland Quokka.

WWF Quokka interview

The two Marks fresh from there end of year breaks started 2017 with some exciting new work with the World Wildlife Fund, radio monitoring Quokka numbers in the forests around our South West. Tip toeing through thick bush so as not to disturb any of the sensitive habitats or there occupants was quite feat while loaded up with camera gear. It was like being on location with Bear Grylls for a day!

Quokka Radio collar

We found evidence of Quokkas in the area but only came across a single animal in the end, and they are much more camera shy than their Rottnest Island cousins. But it was still a successful shoot and a good time was had by everyone involved. We encourage people to check out the important work being carried out by the WWF on Quokkas and their other projects.

You can see the work WWf do with the Quokka here:

As 2016 winds to a close 2017 will see something else spin up. Something with props perhaps?

The boys here at GMi are itching to get the hotly anticipated new DJI drone in there hands. With stunning images, a smaller footprint for easier travel and considerably longer flight times Carl and the Marks are trying to be patient while we await our delivery. In the meantime they have been watching some of the stunning footage some of the lucky people around the world (who have already received their drones) have been capturing. Check out this great one by Philip Bloom.

Windjana Gorge Crocs

2016 saw the boys on filming all over our great state be it in the Kimberley Region, to Broome and the famous Cable Beach, to Dirk Hartog Island during the 400th Anniversary of landing there, back out to the desert to see a land reclaimed, to our states foodbowl heartlands or to our lush southern forests and stunning coastlines, 2016 has been a truly amazing year!

Eagles Skyribbon

So as 2017 rolls in with a new drone a new AVID editing suite, and another new camera on the horizon GMi has never been better suited to tell your story. So please enjoy the end of year festivities, travel safe and drop us a line in the new year we would love to hear from you!

Gorgeous Gorges! GMi takes another trip into the Kimberleys

 

Geikie Gorge Boat tour 1

Mark has continued GMi’s love of filming in the wonderful parks of the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. A recent trip saw Mark from GEO Media interactive (GMi) and a photographer from the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) take a trip out along the Gibb River Road to film the parks of Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek, and Geikie Gorge.

 

Some of Marks highlights from the trip were getting up close to film crocodiles, the guided walking tour through Tunnel Creek, the amazing boat tour along the Geikie Gorge, and the drive itself allowing to see the many different sights and landscapes along the way. He has never seen so many Boab trees and Termite mounds before! The shoot also allowed us to give our new 4k camera a real test as the shooting conditions were quite varied.

 

It was a great trip and Mark is incredibly keen to get back up there to continue exploring the amazing parks of our great state with camera in hand! Before that though there is another trip to Dirk Hartog to complete, so keep your eyes peeled for a story on that soon!
