Graham Nolte, a DP (and so much more), shares tips and advice he’s learned from freelancing:
If you’ve been working in production for one year or ten, you know how frustrating (and expensive!) it can be for a shoot to run over the production schedule. It can happen for a million reasons: wardrobe not fitting, makeup taking longer than people thought, batteries dying or gear getting lost. It’s easy to hope for a perfectly run set, but it’s harder to actually pull it off. In order to cultivate a positive environment where everyone is working efficiently and prevent production delays, here are five things we practice on Mighteor sets that we recommend to everyone:
Over the last decade, video content collaboration has undergone massive changes, thanks in large part to shifts in how, when, and where we work.

If it feels like everyone is jumping on the Virtual Reality / 360-video Hyperloop that’s because the consumer market has hurdled from zero to roughly six million units in just a few months. You can thank the casual and hard-core gamers who comprise a majority of the VR population but, while non-gaming adoption is light, platforms like Facebook and YouTube are taking it seriously.
What if you could produce more live videos without incurring the expense and hassle associated with sending entire production crews and trucks to every venue? And what if you could do that without sacrificing video quality or reliability? The wireless at-home production model allows you to do just that. At-home production is changing the way you can execute live events. Here’s how:
