When asked what we do for a living, we reply, ‘We make companies and their business look awesome!’. We hope you’ll enjoy watching how luxury buses are made in our corporate film for TruckQuip.

In this corporate video production, we combined 5 different cameras to shoot this film; Sony A99, Sony NX5, Sony CX700, Sony NEX6 and GoPro Hero 3 Black. This was done for creative expression as well as practicality. The GoPro Hero 3 was purely a practical one. It has fantastic resolution (2.7K).
The Sony NX5 was used for on-the-road filming of the hero bus. We wanted a wide enough composition and a lots of depth of field. The NX5 also had lens-based stabilization. These features made it our first choice for the bus travel shots.
We’ve always held accessories maker Edelkrone in high regard. The day we purchased the Edelkrone FocusOne Pro, we never looked back. Right away we swapped out our RedRock Micro follow focus in favor of the FocusOne Pro.
We were able to pull focus accurately each time. The forward facing marker disc makes it even more convenient for the camera operator to set his focus points.
We have a few scenes that were shot with a jib. Using the jib in these scenes and then booming up, gave the composition a grand feel. It made a big difference compared to simply using a tripod or even a dolly.
Mounting the A99 on our jib required more counterweights to keep it balanced compared to the NEX-6. Less weights meant we could pack and move to the next scene faster. The NEX-6 was also an interchangeable lens camera. For the rest of the shoot we would always use the NEX-6 for booming shots with the jib.
All of the shots were brought into Edius 6 for color grading and editing. Adobe After Effects was used for motion design and visual effects.
