We had the honor to produce the new music video for Marine/Musician/Songwriter Mike Corrado this past weekend. The video is for the song 'Silver Tags' off of Mike's new album. It was an amazing experience and we had so much fun, made many good memories, and shot one heck of a music video. The video will be epic and we will blog more about that later but wanted to talk about this song and the potential impact it can have on servicemen/women and their families. All the proceeds from this song and video will go to honor our fallen heroes and their families and help Heart Songs for Veterans raise funding for the Semper Fi Fund. Both organizations are phenomenal in what they do and are such selfless causes to help those who have, who are and who will be defending our great country of the United States. Take a minute and click on the link below to watch the behind the scenes of the making of the music video and see how you can help make this dream a reality. #film #filmmaker #filmmaking #video #musicvideo #hollywood #Marines #Army #Navy #camera #director #producer #worthycause
Last week we produced another back to school video for Brunswick County Schools. We are so pleased to continue to work with this school system and are very happy that they understand the power of video. We shot, directed, edited and exported out the final video and they were able to share with parents, staff, school board members and others involved in this great school system. It was just a little teaser of the teachers of the year and a little encouragement for parents and students as they embark on a new school year. Take a look below and again contact #OrangeStFilms for all your #video and #film needs.
We recently produced a follow up video for one of our clients who was well pleased with the first video we made for them. This company makes secret rooms in peoples homes who have the room for that to take place. The company wanted us to put a unique spin on the video, something that would get viewers attention when they first clicked on the video. Plus at the same time being informative and being able to market their services to potential new clients.
We came up with a really cool idea and they loved the script and we just went for it. The video speaks for itself so take a look below and find out why this client is so pleased with our work. For all your video needs please send us a email or give us a phone call and find out how we can help your company or product. #video #filmmaker #marketing #advertising #TVcommercials #viralvideos
With the recent price drop from Black Magic cameras on it's little Pocket Cinema camera (we say little but it packs a punch film look wise) Orange St Films took advantage and recently purchased one. It came in the mail today and we've been toying around with it trying to get all the settings and latest firmware updates together. We've seen some very cool footage shot by this little camera and will soon be testing it out for ourselves and posting the video. We also have a lot of new gear on the way and hope to continue to improve the look of our videos for all clients we are fortunate enough to work with. We are excited about the BMPCC and hope it can be a asset to the company for many years to come. Stay tuned for the footage (which this little guy can now shoot RAW, yay) as we will be posting soon. Call or email for all your production needs.
We recently produced another :30 TV Spot for an educational institution and feel the commercial turned out really well. The client was happy and Orange St Films delivered on the exact type of message the school was trying to get out to the general public to raise awareness of their school and recruit new students. It's always pleasing to us to have a vision and then to be allowed by a client to bring that vision to life. Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think about the commercial.
Video is very powerful. We were around a group of people the other day and one asked, "Have you heard that new song from so and so?" The other responded, "No." Then the one said, "Well it's the number one song on #iTunes after one day." And then what stuck out was what the second person said. They said, "iTunes? I don't even remember the last time I've been on there. If I want to hear a new song I'll just go to #Youtube and listen to it." We thought that was pretty remarkable that a video website has become so popular and so mainstream and in many cases have turned relatively unknowns into well known celebrities....(some we wish would've never happened, see #justinbieber). But anyways, we digress, video is a very powerful medium and there's no better way, in our minds, to communicate your message (ie. radio, still photography, smoke signals, etc.) than video. It's why we continue to do what we do, we thrive off of creating something from nothing and it's a beautiful thing when a shoot comes together and turns into a piece of cohesive art. Call us for all your video needs.
Things could've gotten ugly last week for North Carolina and many states up and down the east coast when Hurricane Arthur threatened many. Thankfully the damage was minimal and there was no loss of life (to our knowledge). We decided to take our camera out to the beach when the Hurricane grazed the NC coast last Thursday, July 3. Winds were probably around 50-70mph and not sure why we did it but we got some pretty good footage. Well here take a look for yourself.
We got a call today from a client we did a video for right around a year ago this time. They were so excited because the video we produced for them has generated nearly 60K views on youtube. We asked if it was directly leading to new business and without hesitation they answered, "YES!" That makes us here at Orange St Films so happy to hear because even though we give 100% in every project we take on the business or client we work for doesn't always give 100% in using that video to it's maximum potential. So when we get a call like that it's very gratifying.......not to mention they gave us the green light on another project in the next few weeks. If you've thought about having a professional video made please view some of our work and give us a chance to help bring your idea to life. We will leave the video we mentioned above below. #film #advertising #marketing #TVCommercials #movies
If anyone ever asks us why we do what we do, we have one simple answer........watch the video below, haha. In all seriousness when we get an opportunity to make a video like the one below we are so humbled and so grateful to be able to bring a message like 'Project Lifesaver' to life from script to video. It was a true honor to continue to work with the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office on projects and we couldn't produce this video fast enough. It is a great service the Sheriff's Office offers and we hope we played a small part in raising awareness for this great program and hope anyone in that area reaches out if they have a need for Project Lifesaver. #video #TV #film #projectlifesaver
It's been a while since we worked on this project but we co-produced, co-directed and shot this amazing documentary featuring 3 amazing soldiers (including recent #MedalofHonor honoree, #KyleCarpenter) overcome traumatic injuries sustained in Afghanistan and Iraq. They are truly inspirational men and their stories will bring tears to your eyes. A big THANK YOU to David Long and myemployees.com for financing the project. The link to the DVD is below.
