A Mark of Appreciation: Client Feedback

At Capital Films, we care not only about the task at hand, but together with the gathered family and friends we ensure that its a night to be remembered.  Thank you, Kirat & Kiran for allowing Randy and myself the opportunity to capture your engagement, we now look forward to the big day!

Details Matter!

At Capital Films we pride ourselves in our work and our attention for detail.  Here is an example of a recently finished engagement video ready for pick up.

Data Protection: We’re obsessed with keeping your data safe!

All of our editing suites have now been fitted with Data Robotics “Drobo” *BeyondRAID storage array systems.

Hard disks like most technological things have a life expectancy, at Capital Films were obsessed with ensuring your data stays safe and secure.  Drobo works by ensuring your data is protected against single and even dual hard disk failures by constantly monitoring hard disk life, self-management and automatic self-healing.

What we also like about Drobo is you can add more hard disks to it instantly without worrying about downtime, its automation and simplicity make it very easy to use and operate and a must for any editing suite.

 

Gearing up for Summer 2014!

Balance, Stability & Innovation

Capital Films has gone through a complete equipment overhaul in preparation for the Summer of 2014.  We’ve geared up with some of the latest and most innovative products such as this Manfrotto 504HD Video Fluid Head.

The 504 HD features Manfrotto’s ‘Bridging Technology’, which allows for a wider top plate and also longer sliding plate for stability and balance.

What we like most about the new video heads are the range of functionality we can get out of them to suit almost any filming requirements, temperatures and conditions.

They also offer a newly designed counter balance alongside full pan and tilt controls.

2014 Spots Still Available – Hurry to Book a Consultation!

One of our Editing Suites!

So what do staff at Capital Films do when they aren’t shooting either photography or film?  They are hard at work editing!  We definitely can’t stress the importance of editing.  It may seem like a boring subject to many but its an important subject to us!  Editing is usually what gets other photo or film studios in trouble – simply because its the part of the process that takes the most time to complete!

At Capital Films, all of our editors are dedicated editors – and typically, editing photography can take up to one complete day of work, while editing film can take up to 3 full-time weeks of editing – well over 100 hours!!!

At the end of the day, we want to bring you a quality product.  And while having creative and talented shooters definitely helps – the work really comes alive through the editing process :)

Overhauling the Office!

That’s us at Ikea today!  We’re working hard at overhauling the office – transforming our space to be the most insanely cool editing lab!  I have a feeling its going to be a long day of assembling and setting things up.  We’re drowning with a million boxes!!!  Look for a post regarding the final outcome – we’re totally excited to share this with you!
