We were lucky enough to be a part of the #NCASA conference in Raleigh, NC yesterday. We put together a video, which we'll post later, that played at the conference in front of many of the top educators from the state and it's always gratifying to see your work played on the big screen over a real sound system, haha. We got a great response from the video which we at Orange St Films are so proud of and feel it's one of the better videos we've produced over the last couple years. We also did many interviews with those educators including one of North Carolina's finest governors Jim Hunt Jr. He was governor from 77-85 and 93-01, the longest tenured governor in NC history. He's very passionate about education and a big advocate of the public school system. It was refreshing to hear his passion and belief in the future of education in North Carolina. We were very honored to be a part of this conference and movement in NC to improve the public school system in the great state on North Carolina. #film #movies #filmmaking #hollywood #filmmaker #camera
We recently did more work with the #BrunswickCountySheriffsOffice on a new video profiling it's volunteer program. Right now they have one of the top volunteer programs in the state of North Carolina. It's a model that any sheriff's office or organization looking to implement volunteers into it's day to day activities should take a look and learn from. Sheriff Ingram and his staff do things the right way and we are honored to continue to be able to work with them and showcase to the public what their office does on a day to day basis in it's many capacities. The #video runs about 4 minutes and we tried to highlight the different areas in which volunteers can be a part of. It's astounding to us at #OrangeStFilms that volunteers saved the taxpayers of #BrunswickCounty nearly $450K in 2013 alone in potential salaries. We've gotten great feedback on the video and again we were very honored to be able to produce such a video on a worthy cause and effort. Take a looky and give us some feedback if you will.
Spring is right around the corner for most of us and depending on where you live in the world I know it can't come a moment to soon. That's all.
Orange St Films was privileged enough to recently have a intern come spend a few weeks at our company from a #French film school. It was a delight to work with this young, hungry film student who is eager to learn and is willing to soak up the little bit of knowledge we've attained over the years. While here we did something we haven't done in a few years and that was make a new short #film. We wrote the film very quickly and then shot the entire movie in a day and a half with over 5 very diverse locations around the Wilmington, NC area. It's very refreshing to have someone new join your team, if only for a little while, because it's a good reminder why we do what we do. We sat down and edited the film in a day or so, give or take a little. We had a little premiere of the film in downtown Wilmington at the Blind Elephant (the bar profiled in the short film). The movie is on our home page but we will leave a youtube link below and please take a minute to watch it, rate it, critique it. Thanks. It stars Josh Allen, Mark Darby Robinson and Mollie Lewis and we'd like to thank them and everyone involved with this little project for their time and hard work. We are so blessed to do what we do and more than anything we love, love, love creating something from nothing and that's what we did with 'Escape'. Watch in 1080 for the best quality or the #vimeo link on the front page automatically plays in #highdef. #film #filmmaking #movies #shortfilm #actor #Camera #hollywood #action
We've not taken the time to say Happy New Year to the world yet so better late than never I guess. 2013 was a great year for Orange St Films but like any company with big dreams and aspirations we strive to be better year after year and that's exactly what we plan to do here in the new year. Have some great new projects in the works that we are keeping a hush on for the time being but it promises to be a productive year down on Orange St. What are your goals and plans for the New Year? What was that you said 'to hit the gym and lose those pounds?' Come on you can be a little bit more original than that. Why don't you strive to do one thing differently every day, just one little thing that you've never done in your life before that time. Whether it be taking a different way to work, walking a different path, or finally having that smile on your face that you've been battling to come out for quite some time. Think differently and be differently in 2014 and you will feel much better about yourself and life.
We've worked with a great up and coming company for the last couple of years called the CV2 producing all of their videos. It's a great product that helps with lower leg blood circulation. We have done many testimonials for the CV2 along with product and demonstration videos and every one rants and raves about how effective the CV2 is in helping out in the process of their legs feeling better and the convenience of having this little machine in their home or below their desk at work. If you get a minute click on the link below for the youtube page we created for them and the series of videos we've made to help them in their marketing and sales of the product. We can do the same thing for your company or business so feel free to contact us any time........oh yea and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
If you are a business that offers multiple services or products and you don't have #videos showing those services off then you truly are missing out. For years now #OrangeStFilms has been doing multiple videos on the different aspects of businesses and then building #youtube pages for those companies. We will leave a link to a gym that we have done such for and they have reaped great benefits from the use of video. We've said it many times but video is the way of the future and if you don't have one showcasing what you're business is all about then you are losing customers. Contact us today and see how we can help grow your current business.
We recently had the opportunity to produce a very touching story for the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office about a little dog named Springer. Without giving to much away (just take 2 minutes out of your day to watch the video below....you won't be disappointed) we got the chance to spend the day with Springer and Lt. Thomas Tolley who is head of the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office Animal Protective Services. It's always gratifying from our end to be able to tell a story that not many people would normally get a chance to hear. This #video is a perfect example of us knowing as a company we are on the right path and we wouldn't trade our job for any other job in the world. Take a couple minutes to view the video and please feel free to comment and leave some feedback and remember that we should all treat #animals with the utmost respect because they are #God's creatures too.
Today is Monday November 11, 2013. It is Veteran's Day here in the United States and we at #OrangeStFilms would like to take a minute and say thank you to all the #veterans past, present and future. Freedom is not free and without all of these brave men and women who have so selflessly given their time, energy and many their lives we salute you and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We've had the pleasure to work with different servicemen and women over the years on a variety of projects and have been able to get a little glimpse inside the lives of these heroes and have been able to understand a little better the tremendous sacrifices they make on a daily basis. We will share a video we produced over the last couple months with a true American hero, #JasonRedman, talking about his experiences and the writing of his new book #TheTrident. God Bless all of our veterans and once again #thankyou.
Stumbled across this gem on filmmaking/editing on youtube earlier today. Obviously it wasn't shot yesterday and filmmaking has changed so much since Hitchcock made films but boy is it neat to hear one of the pioneers of film talk about a very important aspect of filmmaking #editing. If you're an aspiring editor or want to learn different aspects in making #movies, #commercials, #music videos, web #videos, etc. please take some time out to watch this not just once but several times over and absorb it. Would've been really cool to be on a set with Alfred Hitchcock and glad he took the time to sit down and talk about his craft on #camera.
