My Best Drone Gig of 2017

Miscellaneous Wednesday, February 7, 2018
I have to thank ProductionHUB for the best drone gig I had in 2017. I received a call from Jynx Productions from Yarmouth, Maine on a Tuesday, inquiring about a drone shoot to happen in 2 days. 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.

How Virtual Reality in Vectorworks Software Supports Live Event Production

Miscellaneous Monday, March 6, 2017
From concerts and plays to exhibits and conventions, live event production designers do it all. With the wide variety of venues and client demands, production designers operate in a high-pressure industry where they have to be flexible and able to adapt to given settings, which can be difficult when you’re hundreds of miles away from the site and your design associates are unable to travel to the venue and see what you’re working with. Traditional documentation can help designers gain an understanding of what they’re working with, but it’s not the same as experiencing a physical space for themselves. However, with the rise of virtual reality (VR) technology, there is an improvement to this problem.
