For this shot a helium balloon with several daylight balanced instruments is tethered above the scene. The balloon light simulates the full moon by casting an even back/side light on the entire area. For more information on balloon lighting or night for night photography, contact us.

For the opening to a Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year television special, renowned golfer Phil Mickelson addresses the camera. For this shot we used a Sony F-900 High Definition Camcorder mounted on a 25 foot jib arm for long time client Intersport of Chicago.
Studio Production as well as Field Production
In town for a major medical conference, client Don Wheatley of V-Worx Digital Media needed to shoot a panel discussion for one of his clients. Using a local affiliate’s stage and facilities we accommodated Don as well as many similar clients over the years. Whether you need a simple two-man camera crew or a multiple camera shoot on a sound stage we’ve got you covered.
Respecting the Time of Your Client’s Employees
An important aspect during production of videos for biotech clients is maximizing our time in the lab with minimal interruptions to the scientist’s work while complying with health & safety procedures. In addition to this skill and experience, we have engineered specialized lighting systems for lab work.
The Importance of Good Makeup
Now that we’re in a high definition video production world, more attention must be paid to the quality of the makeup job and artist. High definition images have much greater resolution than our old NTSC system showing more flaws in the skin; aging, wrinkles, etc. On a recent shoot for a corporate website video client in San Diego, our makeup artist was Melissa Street, www.EpicMakeUP.com. Melissa has been a professional makeup artist for over twenty years and has worked on feature films; Terminator, Aliens, etc. She used a product that I hadn’t seen before that helps keep facial perspiration, (sweat), from ruining the makeup job. The product is a spray that in effect “seals” the pores temporarily. Called Skindinavia Makeup Fixing Spray, it did a great job during our shoot as we had to use heavy lighting to balance the background scene out the window of the office we were working in. Sloan productions has been producing high definition content and website video production in San Diego for over 30 years, www.sloanproductions.com.
