ZillaChats with Something White

Featuring another vendor interview we shot and produced for Heidi of Heidzillas with the lovely ladies of Something White. In this short video they give some info about buying a wedding dress and things to remember as you shop, great info!

Thanks Heidi, Karen and Rebecca. It was great working with you.

Last April we attended a great conference called NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) in Vegas and it was a blast! It’s a conference focused around equipment and technology needed for video, television and broadcasting. We really got to do a lot of research to help figure out what new gear we wanted to get for our business. We got to touch, hold and try out a lot of things which was invaluable research. Since HD DSLR cameras are the future of video, we wanted to stay ahead of the curve to find out what cameras, rigs, tripods and extras would be the best fit for us and our business.

After the conference invested in a slider, the GoPro and a DSLR rig from Express35 (see photos below of similar rigs that we are trying out).

Thought it would be fun to share some of the research and gear that goes into videography!

Zacuto makes great light weight rigs.

Bob played All-In Charity poker game for filmmakers.

Bob met some great filmmakers.

a cool harnass gib

so many different combinations of rigs.

A mega sized slider!

We use our GoPro on vehicles, but can be used viturally anywhere!

Marie and Harvey’s wedding day started off with lots of rain, but luckily the storms stopped just in time to sneak in their outdoor ceremony at the Sheraton Suites overlooking the falls…it was a lovely and intimate ceremony. After we shot some photos with AJF Photography we all headed over to Springlake Party Center for some mingling and dancing.

Congrats and best wishes to Marie and Harvey! Thanks for asking us to be apart of your special day.

Thanks,
Bob & Krista

Bob and I also like to donate our time to charities in the area. Here’s a local commercial we shot and edited last year to help Walk for Babies!

Walk for Babies is an event that was started by an extremely thankful set of parents, the Snellenbergers after their child received such great care in the NICU at Akron Children’s Hospital. It didn’t take long to find hundreds of other families that felt the same way. They all work together as a way to say thanks and to raise money for the NICU at Akron Children’s Hospital.

Come join the walk this year on Sunday, September 19th at the Akron Zoo.
