topic icon Sound op hire for factory promo shoot

Stu has been working with local company Panoptic, filming a series of promotional videos at a factory in Okehampton

Stu was on hand to capture audio, while the Panoptic team took care of the visuals. Maniac Films also provided a number of Pag V-lok batteries to power the LED lights on the factory floor

The shoot was for Cladco, a nationwide building cladding supplier. The videos demonstrate how the company creates their cladding products in the factory. A professional presenter brought in to demonstrate the processes professionally to camera.

Over the course fo the morning, over 7 short videos were captured, which will appear on the company's website and online store. The afternoon was spent filming B-roll shots.

Stu used the Sound Devices Mix-pre 10 mixer/recorder along with a Sennheiser radio mic and a back-up boom mic using the Rode NTG-3 shotgun mic.

The captured audio files were handed over to the film crew ready for editing at the end of the shoot and we look forward to seeing how the final films come out!
