Sandisk 128GB Product Launch Video

SanDisk launched 128GB microSD card March of last year for any device that accepts cards of that size. Please watch the video to find out what it means to have a higher capacity of storage in your mobile devices. This video was distributed to other SanDisk branches around the world and to SanDisk customers.

The production set up involved an FS700 with an 18-300 lens and a boom pole shotgun mic. The subjects were lit with a large softbox as the main and an LED as the kicker. Audio backup is a wireless lav which is miked to an audio recorder. It turned out that the first two interviews needed that backup as the background noise of the environment is noisy. The lav was placed closer to the subjects voice than the boom mic.

We sent 2 videographers to a “Find Your Cofounder” Meetup ( in Milpitas, CA where he was the featured speaker to attend and tape his talk during lunchtime. There were over 50 people, mostly from the local tech industry. He brought two of his current clients and started interviewing them, with all the attendees looking on and taking notes. He asked them pertinent questions about their startups and who they were pitching to-2nd stage investors. By the end of the conversation with them, the general consensus from the room was that the two clients’ pitches were much more convincing and persuasive than they had been at the beginning of their session.

Promotional Video for Martial Arts Instructor Arthur Lam in San Jose

Promotional videos are a great way to promote services to new clients for small business owners.  It is a concise way to show and tell what you have to offer in your business.  Here is a recent promotional video about a new Martial Arts instructor in San Jose who explains his new style of Tai Chi.  This video was to promo his new school and launch his marketing campaign to grow his student base.  The video was distributed through mass email, social media private messages, and Facebook.

I have discussed with the client to shoot with more abstractly with close shots, utilize the slider with a more cinematic effect, and incorporate smooth transitions to match well with the content presented.  The scenes were shots at William Street Park in San Jose.  Production time was about an hour and a half with a brief interview and a demonstration.  It was filmed with one camera, audio, and a soft light angled at 45 degrees.  Turnaround time was about two days.

You may visit Mr. Lam’s blog to inquire about lessons in San Jose.
