PVH , Phillips Van Heuson, was given the task of creating a series of Olympic swimmer-inspired videos for Speedo’s new water-version of crossfit exercise and equipment, called “Speedo Fit”. PVH’s Director of Production and Content, Nick Cucci hired Bob Sloan to employ his vast underwater video experience, while Jeff Landie handled topside part of shoot and ran a crew of over 10 people that included a grip truck. Three Canon C300s were used, 1 in an underwater housing and 2 on the pool deck, along with a Canon 5D Mark III to capture exercise techniques, and film feature interviews with current swimmers on the US Olympic team heading to Rio for the 2016 summer games.
Readycomm – Johnson & Johnson Webcast
ReadyComm from Dallas TX brought us onboard to produce a live webcast for their client Johnson & Johnson. ReadyComm’s Garvin Hassell worked with Jeff Landie on all the logistics, including how to best light the room and capture sound from a live panel and audience members, as well as reinforce audio to the live audience. During the event, Jeff directed and TD/switched the 2 camera production while recording the line cut, as it was being sent live on the internet.
January 2011, New York marketing and PR firm WCG chose us to field produce their video shoot for their client Maquet’s product CARDIOHELP, which is the world’s smallest and lightest life support system for cardiac support and respiratory assistance. WCG’s Director Scott Schindler worked with DP Bob Sloan to capture the dramatic footage of the product in action while transporting patients between hospital beds, an ambulance and a helicopter. Shot on location in El Centro, CA, Bob chose to shoot on the Canon 5D DSLR camera, utilizing a cage system made by Zacuto for more stable handheld shooting. Jeff Landie served as Producer, working alongside client rep Susan Neath to arrange for all the different elements, and keep things moving and coordinated.

Crews Control taps a Sloan Productions crew to shoot features for Prudential Insurance in Carlsbad and San Diego, CA. DP Jeff Landie shot interviews and b-roll for a “Day in the Life” of an insurance agent on XDCAM HD, as directed by Producer Dave Katz of Prudential Productions. In one setup, HMI lights were employed to light the interview subject in an interior conference room, to bring up the light level and balance it with the much brighter light level of the sky and scenery in the exterior background behind the subject as viewed out a window.

Major League Baseball Commercial in Anaheim
Sloan Productions constructed a set of frames to be used in multiple scenes for Major League Baseball shooting a tease for the 2010 All Star Game. Director of Photography Bob Sloan leads a Sloan Productions crew with MLB producer Darryl Martins around the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. Panasonic Varicam & Canon 5D footage was shot over two days at three different locations, including the Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
In this photo, Bob directs personell for the shot, making sure all props are positioned accordingly. The concept behind this shot is derived from the motion tracking principle, placing markers near each joint to identify his motion by the positions or angles between the markers, a visual-effects technique that allows the insertion of computer graphics into live-action footage also known as match moving.
