Following the positive industry feedback from our first production with Perth Home Care Services (watch here) we were lucky to be asked back in late 2014 for another corporate video / documentary. This time focussing on the stories of seven people and families whom are benefitting from individualised disability funding.
Our involvement in the project was pretty late in the game. Just before filming we found ourselves promptly booking flights and flying to Geraldton, then filming back in Perth in the ensuing days. We didn’t have time to put a storyboard or brief together, it was an exercise is making the most of short filming sessions with people whom we were for the most part meeting for the first time. Fortunately we’ve had a great deal of practice doing this throughout 2014 and the final result has worked out really well and we found ourselves personally touched by many of the stories people had to tell. It’s a great feeling getting to work for an organisation that is making such a positive difference in people’s lives.
We shot our first project with Perth Home Care on the Canon 5D Mark II, a DLSR with 1080p compressed video capability. This time around we chose to shoot on the Red Scarlet, a 4k raw shooting cinema camera. When watching in full HD on a projector or monitor the image quality difference is astounding. The flexibility shooting 4k raw gives us for cropping and colour grading in post is invaluable on a run-n-gun shoot like this where you don’t always have the time to perfectly frame up a shot.
We are incredibly grateful to the Perth Home Care team for having us back and allowing us to take part in this journey.
The first video below is all the mini-doc’s together as one, or you can watch them individually.
