Capturing the Community Spirit for Tourism Saskatchewan.
Topics: Java Blog
Java Post Production was the production house that helped Phoenix Group create the 2015 television and web video campaign for Tourism Saskatchewan. Led by the co-director/co-photographer duo of Greg Huszar and Derek Frankowski, Java Post created 2x60 and 12x15 commercials.
As part of the overall campaign, our aerial photography division - Java Post Aerial Photography - was tasked with shooting the aerial images needed to capture the breathtaking wide open spaces of our province.
In the 60-second "Community" spot, seen above, family and neighbours come together to enjoy a lovely Saskatchewan evening filled with food, friendship, music, and laughter. You can't beat a beautiful Saskatchewan evening.
A wide shot of our barn location, not far from Regina. The crew is in the left foreground and the cast is in the background on the right. It's like shy boys and girls at a barn dance, everyone's bashful about mingling. Well that and the crew members are trained to stay behind the camera. Trust us, you don't want to see some of our crew in front of a camera. :)
Except for perhaps these two crew members. Whatever camera assistant Todd Irving (right) said to sound recordist Jason Delasoy, it must have been funny.
Here we see co-directors/co-photographers Greg Huszar and Derek Frankowski lining up a shot.
Derek (left) and gaffer Peter LaRocque set up a camera rig for a car shot.
At dusk, the Java Post Aerial Photography flight crew (camera operator and flight technician Trevor Bennett, far left, and certified UAV pilot Jack Tunnicliffe, far right) launch one of our drones. A cowboy-hatted Dustin Panko from Phoenix Group watches the shot over Jack's shoulder.
As night falls and the stars appear, the crew preps for a night shot.
