Producing corporate videos is a means of driving revenue and telling stories that is still the backbone of many businesses worldwide. There is often the need to show new employees what they will be doing on the job, produce company profiles that have a mission statement and proposition or create a slick one-off video to highlight a new product or service.

Producer Singer-Songwriter Bruno Mars is on a massive “24K Magic World Tour“ cross-continent tour which started in the Europe and is now entering North America.

Bruno Mars new tour reflects the funk & soul of the ’70s, and the 24 Magic World Tour stage design is no different.

Reviewed by Chris SanchezAKG recently sent me a pair of their new 451 ‘65th anniversary edition’ models as well as a D12VR to evaluate in studio. While not strict re-issues per se, these beautifully made microphones combine vintage and modern features to continue the legacy of these two great product lines. AKG introduced the original D12 in the mid 1950s, and it has been a favorite for kick drum mic’ing for decades. The 451 has a similar lengthy history, with that series debuting in 1969. AKG 451s have for decades been staples in music recording studios as well as on film sets and foley stages.

They were having a tough time finding a licensed drone pilot in Florida who also could be the main camera on a DSLR shoot. Luckily they logged onto ProductionHUB and found my profile. Fortunately, I was able to move a day of editing on another project, because I ended up capturing the best footage I have ever shot with my DJI Mavic Pro.
For most people who hear the title "corporate video production", I would imagine that some of the first words that come to mind are boring, dull, stiff, or lame. You'd be surprised to find that some companies are producing corporate videos that are anything, but lame.
By Ray Roman I never really planned on leaving my fulltime job to become a wedding cinematographer. I was working at a police department on the SWAT team when I entered the business, and I thought it was just going to be a hobby. Over time, however, I started booking more clients than I could handle, and I had to make the leap. I was obsessed with video production.
