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!

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:

Bushfire control with DPaW

Hosing Fire

Following on from the recent prescribed burning videos GMi produced for the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) and used by commercial stations in programs such as Today Tonight, the team here at GMi and DPaW are working together again.

Mark recently spent a week embedded with the DPaW fire fighting teams. Based in the Perth Hills Mundaring office, Mark filmed the teams as they responded to fires, but also captured the important work the teams do when there are no fires. It’s not just maintaining their vehicles and equipment, it’s work like feral pest reduction programs, the rehabilitation of fire affected areas, and building bridges in our national parks.

For more information on the amazing work DPaW does click here.

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!

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.

 

DSC_0013 The team here at GMi congratulate everyone involved with the project and look forward to working with them again!

 

 

 

Wardandi Memorial Park

The documentary will cover the construction of the park by the work teams, the preparation and burial of Noongar remains returned to the South West from a number of museums across Australia, interviews showing the cultural significance and steps taken over 25 years to make the park a reality.

Bugging DEC’s science team!

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
