Open water. Sunsets on the Gulf. Wind blowing in our hair….Our latest shoot might sound more like a vacation! But our team worked hard to get some amazing shots for boating company, Beavertail Skiffs! The Litewave Media production team spent two days filming on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico capturing cinematic footage of the boats as well as interviews that will be used for both a TV commercial and web video. Beavertail Skiffs are manufactured with advanced technology making their boats top notch in performance, quality and durability – and the video will show how they use this tech to make the best boats. Beavertail Skiffs was looking to film a TV commercial to promote their product and hired our Tampa video production company to take on the challenge.
Our Tampa video crew member, John Jones, was the cinematographer for the shoot. He filmed on the Sony FS100 video camera which enabled him to capture sweeping slow motion shots of the boats. The first day, our Tampa video production team started at the warehouse to film some interviews with Beavertail Skiffs’ owners William and Elizabeth Leslie. We brought our Litepanel LED lights and Kino Flo Divas from our Tampa grip truck to light up the interviews. “We love using the LEDs to film interviews,” says John. “They are easy to transport and quick to setup on smaller shoots. It makes us really efficient.”
The second day, Beavertail Skiffs brought 5 boats into the open water. John captured cinematic shots filming from a variety of angles. Some of the shots included filming the owners and employees using different fishing techniques, including flight fishing, and the boats traveling through the sea in slow-motion. At the end of the day, the team captured a perfect sunset with the boats riding off into the sunset.
Florida is a wonderful location for boating and outdoor filming, and we love getting out of the office to enjoy a little fresh air! Our Tampa production company had a great time filming with Beavertail Skiffs and looks forward to our next adventure!
