Corporate Videos

You Say VoiceOver, I say Voice Over, You say Tomahto, I say Tomato

Used to be, not too long ago, that one had to be a professional, trained voiceover artist with expensive microphones and a foam-padded voiceover booth in order to grace any feature, commercial or corporate video production with their luscious pipes.  Like many things, that is no longer the case.  In the early days of WorldWise, Jinah used to voice (using her broadcast TV-trained voice) under a blanket. Since then, we've graduated to a much more professional voiceover booth (yes, with those foam pads and a $500 microphone).  But the voiceover industry is changing at such break-neck speed that even a trained broadcast TV voice is no longer a necessity or even desired on many video productions.  Jinah once tried out for a McDonalds radio commercial.  "Umm... your voice is a little too broadcasty..." is the feedback she got.  They ended up choosing someone who had a more natural, every-day conversational voice - someone you'd associate with a phone call more than a radio.  And the equipment is getting cheaper, smaller and more efficient - so that virtually anyone can voice anything to video.  

Just don't forget the blanket.  

Touching Up Talent For Lower Production Cost

When you think of a video production shoot, you think trailers, wardrobe and makeup artists, right? Well, the budget for our corporate videos is almost there, but not quite! In order to make the best video for the leanest budget, we provide light makeup on set but skip the trailer and wardrobe. Our talents always end up looking great on camera, and we skip all the temper tantrums associated with big productions.

Staging A Night Shoot At The Hospital

A late night shoot at UCLA's Ronald Reagan hospital for our Social Media video. The trick to a successful shot at a hospital is to start production at night when patients and family members are not roaming the halls. We rolled in the jib for the RED camera and everything!

Shooting With The Ursa Black Magic Camera

We are on location today testing out our latest acquisition, the Ursa Black Magic, on our latest shoot with the UCLA School of Dentistry.  We are able to see production playback on 3 different monitor points! To be safe, we doubled up with our regular Canon 5D. Loving the footage we're capturing on both!
