1. Tell us the name of your Production Group/Company
2. Tell us "How the equipment" has impacted your company or workflow.
3. What festivals or competitions (if any) do you plan to submit the work to.
4. Description of the work you and your group have completed with the equipment.
SAMPLE STUDENT RESPONSE
1. Tell us the name of your Production Group/Company Content creation company and social media management: Zimo Media. My personal LLC: VSL Studios.
2. Tell us "How the equipment" has impacted your company or workflow. This equipment has opened a lot of doors for our business. Having “top-notch” equipment allows us to book bigger clients than ever before while enabling us to compete with already established companies in our area. We’ve been able to experiment with new styles and techniques, only possible with the type of equipment that we are currently using. Something that is also worth mentioning is the ability to carry most of our equipment with the Pelican case that was given with the camera. Having a case that can carry all of our materials has been a blessing, while also making us look more professional in front of our clients.
3. What festivals or competitions (if any) do you plan to submit the work to. As of now, all the work that we have produced using the equipment is mainly for clients. That being said, a lot of it cannot be summited to festivals or competitions since we are under contracts. We do plan on using the camera that was given to us for creative and conceptual music videos - which could be summited to competitions or festivals in that regard.
4. Description of the work you and your group have completed with the equipment. Time & Tonic is a timepiece watch collector who came to us wanting some product videography to showcase their current high-end watch collection. In the studio, we used a turn table and a mixture of different lighting techniques to make the watches glisten and shine with negative around the studio. Multiple recap Instagram reels were created for their socials. Essential Hospitality is a poolside hospitality crew that wanted videography work showcasing the fun and relaxing vibe of the pool deck at the Fontainebleau in Miami. Using natural lighting and diffusion we shot all day showcasing the staff, the pool deck area, and the interactions between EH staff and guests. We then created reels for their Instagram and also picked videos for in-feed and story posts.
