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!

The see us droning droning droning…in 4K!

Drone with 5DWe here at GEO Media interactive have long been looking to offer video drone services to our clients on top of our aerial video/photo services. GMi are now engaging C.A.S.A certified video drone providers for use in our productions. This opens up a whole new level of filming possibilities, that all of us are very excited about. These drones are fitted with either a Canon 5d mk3, Panasonic GH3, or Black Magic 4K cameras, and with an under-slung camera position and retractable undercarriage they offer unrivaled field of view and image possibilities.  If you would like to know more about these services, or how we could further your production with these drones please drop us a line. We would love to hear from you!

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!
