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!

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.

The End (2016) is Nigh!

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

Exploring 4

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!

GMi gets wise with the Water Corporation

The Water Corporation of Western Australia is about to launch a series online training packages based around businesses and households becoming Waterwise users. These packages were fully produced in-house here at GEO Media interactive (GMi) and contained video components, animations, interactive media and programming, as well as SCORM and LMS authoring and implementation.

 

Whats more the work we have been done has been submitted as an entry into a statewide award. More details on the award entry and packages will be made available in early 2016 when the training goes live! In the meantime check out the Water Corporation website and learn what it means to be Waterwise!

Bunbury is Happy!

All of us here at GMi would like to congratulate everyone involved in the making of the Drug Aware  Happy Bunbury film project. Set to Pharrell Williams hit song ‘Happy’ the project showcases a variety of places and faces around Bunbury that celebrate the diversity and vibrancy of the local community.

After attending workshops run by the City of Bunbury and GMi the project was filmed by a number of Bunbury youths and their carers on small handycams. The footage was then given to GMi for editing. The resulting video came together brilliantly and was a fantastic way to celebrate International Day of People with Disability 2014.

It was a great project and the kids did amazing work. We are very proud to of been able to be part of this project and so should everyone involved.

Check out the video here:  Happy Bunbury

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!
