Holly + Chris

We were really excited to work on this wedding film not only because Chris is the Founder of our company but because we really tried to make their film very unique. The film was released on Holly and Chris’ one year anniversary. The idea was to start the film backwards then the prologue followed by the wedding day film. The wedding film was actually shot back in February of 2018 but was not seen by anyone other than  Holly & Chris. Overall, we really enjoyed working on this film because how truly special this day was.

Julie + Dudley

Julie & Dudley were really great to work with! We were lucky enough to shoot their special day at the Bridges Bay Resort in Okoboji. The day started off with us filming at the waterpark inside the resort. We then moved on to film them getting ready at the hotel on the resort. Throughout the day, we also documented them enjoying time with their families. The ceremony and reception took place at the Waterfront which is also located on the resort. Overall, we had tons of fun filming them celebrating with their family.

Ana + Blake

We really enjoyed filming with Ana and Blake! The day started with us filming them getting ready, then their first look at The Meadow Barn on the outskirts of Sioux Falls. The ceremony took place out in Parker, SD at the St. Christina Catholic Church. After the ceremony, we captured a short one on one session with them outside the church. On the way back to the Meadow Barn, we stopped on a dirt road and grabbed a sunset shot of them together. One of the most touching moments of during the reception was when Ana’s sister played old audio clips of their mother who had passed away several years ago. The moment made the whole barn tear up, so we made sure to include that in the film. Overall, we want to thank Ana and Blake for letting us capture their day and truly had a great time filming their wedding day!

Dancing With The Sioux Falls Stars 2018 Video Shoot

We had the honor of shooting the Dancing with the Sioux Falls Stars introduction videos for the DWTS 2018 event in Sioux Falls. The yearly dance-off raises money for NAMI Sioux Falls. We filmed the professional dance instructors and their locally famous partners during their rehearsals.

The set up was simple; A Sony FS5 II was set up on one side of the room for our A Cam and filmed the interviews with a Sony a7sII as our B cam off to the side. Honestly, the lighting set up was a bit strange, but it worked! A photography strobe’s model light was our key light while the ambient room light was our fill. You can see a small LED set up behind the subjects on the B Cam. That was a stylistic choice we went with as well as a side highlight. Audio was captured overhead on the Rode NTG4+ straight to the FS5. During the dancing, we had the B Cam grabbing the tight shots and A Cam on the Ronin M gimbal.

James Valley Landscaping Solutions: Apprenticeship Program Ad Shoot
IMG_8963.jpg

Earlier this January, we got the chance to film with James Valley Landscaping Solutions for their Apprenticeship Program. The program helps local students that do not know what they want to do after high school with the opportunity to find a career in the field of landscaping. We interviewed a few of the employees with Carey Grosdidier at James Valley Landscaping Solutions on the benefits of this great opportunity.

The location of this shoot took place in the greenhouse at James Valley Landscaping Solutions. A very simple set up: We used a Sony FS5II as our main cam on a Manfrotto tripod and a Sony a7SII as our second cam which was on a Manfrotto monopod. The natural lighting in the green house was great, but the sun started to creep through as its position got higher throughout the day. We hung a reflector from one of the beams to help diffuse the harsh lighting from the sun as seen in the photo above. All of our audio was captured overhead on the Rode NTG4+ wired straight to the FS5. We moved all of the subjects around the greenhouse set for every 4th interviewee so that the background was unique.
