Meet Christine: Introducing Our New B-Cam The R1MX

So first off...is it weird to name electronics? Probably. However, we work so closely with our Red cameras day in and day out that we have always not only named them, but introduced them to the world that way. As weird as it may be, these cameras really are part of the CW family. With that said, meet Christine.

Talking to a Watch: A Quick Review of the Android Moto360

When the first generation of Android watches started hitting the shelves I found that unlike most mobile tech, these did not excite me at all. I’m not sure why, but the idea of adding yet another layer of connectivity to my life, especially on my wrist, seemed redundant and pointless.

We Make You Look Good

One of the biggest fears plaguing people who have to be on camera is the fear of looking bad. This fear exists for good reason. Many videographers look at a scene or interview from a purely functional standpoint and do not take into account the art of how to make their talent look flattering. We at CreativeWave always have the goal of making our talent look at least as good as they do in real life if not even better. There are three major factors that play into our approach.

Camera & Lens

Bringing Home 4K

Now that so many great 4K TVs are available for purchase, many clients and friends have been asking us how to pick out a good 4K Ultra High Definition TV or display for their offices/homes. Being that we have become the 4K production authority here in Idaho, we decided it was time to throw together something of a buyer’s guide both for work and pleasure.
 
First step, big or small?
Size does matter. There are two primary uses for 4K displays, the first being as a media viewing device (TV) in your home or office.

Idaho Moving Pictures

Recently we have been working on an interesting project for one of our clients. The client asked for gorgeous footage that captured the calming beauty of our local Idaho environment. The catch was that all the shots needed to be wide and all the shots needed to be 100% camera static. Think of this project as wall art with some motion within a static frame. So often we as cinematographers get so caught up in the motion and the trinkets that we forget to simply enjoy the art of capturing pretty pictures.

A Marketing Resolution: Free Boise Downtown Timelapses for Winter & Fall | Free Stock Footage

This year’s resolution at CW is simple, give back to those in the local marketing community. Having worked as a marketing director myself, I know how hard it is to come up with new content to grab people’s attention, especially when budgets are tight. Because of this we will be giving away awesome local stock footage that is free to use commercially. We only ask that you not remove our logo watermark in any way and that you don’t directly re-sell any of our footage.

A Seriously Stable Company: The Addition of the DJI Ronin Handheld Stabilizer

 
 
Since the very first videos created on the Freefly MoVI hit the internet, we at CreativeWave have been absolutely infatuated with owning a three axis stabilized brushless gimbal system. The idea of a platform that stabilized your camera and made everything look like it was simply flying through the air was just way to cool to pass up.
