5 Tips for Working with the MoVI
by Daniel Hurst It's been a few months since we first got our hands on the MoVI and it has been a great tool on many of our recent stock shoots (check out the Shutterstock behind the scenes video where we took it out for the first time).

While the MoVI is very easy to simply pick up and start shooting with, there is a learning curve with several aspects of the system. Here are a few tips for working with this great piece of equipment.

What COVID-19 Looks Like for Me
It’s been about 4 weeks since we’ve all been thrown into an unprecedented new way of life and for those of us in the production/entertainment industry, our re-entry back into a working world is still being debated and planned, and likely a few weeks, if not months away yet.
