“Making a program like The Travel Bug requires
specialist equipment that is very reliable and backed up by great service.
Video Australasia were incredibly supportive and helpful in supplying the
gear for our shoot and gave us the confidence to go into the field for an
extended period knowing that we could rely on our kit and the backup of the
VA team. Warren recognised our unique set of needs, where we had to be able
to shoot in countless scenarios from snowstorms and volcano rims to beneath
the ocean, and set us up with all the necessary equipment to get the job
David Byrne, Producer, The Travel Bug.
We had the opportunity to work with the F23 camera and
let our DOP Peter Falk go to town on a complicated and time precious shoot.
As a producer / Director I was a little nervous about the time I thought it
would take to rig / de-rig this camera set up. All I can say is WOW. The
unit was incredible, smooth transitions between shot set ups and an
absolutely stunning result. It was like working with film, only easier and
to be honest, more thrilling! The F23 provided us with results I have never
been able to achieve. Fantastic arrangements with lenses, enabled us to
cheat a lot of shots, ultimately saving us time and money. It’s got the
versatility of a small camera and of course the 4:4:4 element which is
wonderfully rich in depth of colour options when grading. Video Australasia
made this process possible by their absolute and complete knowledge of the
gear and my seemingly relentless and unreasonable requirements!! They
operate like a full international production hire outfit, yet still give you
the one on one attention to detail that you’d get if you were borrowing a
mate’s camera. So all in all a fantastic package, affordably priced,
achieving fantastic results. I can’t say anymore than that!
Walt Collins, CEO, Collins Media Advertising
On behalf of IMG Media, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you
and your team at Video Australasia for your professionalism and reliability
over the past year, the last in our contract with the ASP. As a production
manager, it was refreshing to work with a hire company that has such a high
level of service and care. Even though our contract with the ASP is
complete, we are looking forward to a continued and fruitful professional
relationship with Video Australasia in 2008 and beyond.
