Denver Drone Operator produced by VS Video Productions in Denver
Denver Drone Operators
Drones have become very popular the last couple of years.When drones first came out they were priced at $10,000 and up.Today you can buy a professional drone for $600 or so.That doesn’t mean you will be a pro at it.It takes allot of practice and if you are using it for video production,you do need a knowledge of video production techniques.Thats where we come in we are a highly experienced company,that constantly updates our equipment and our skills.
Drones provide a video production a real creative and majestic look that years ago cost tens of thousands per day as your only option was a real helicopter or airplane.I am so confident with using our drone I could even use it inside.
Denver Drone Pilot
Denver Drone Pilots and drone operators around the country got some bad press when drone operators didn’t follow some common sense rules like not flying it near airports,schools,large crowds etc.
Now there is a licensing requirement for all Drone owners .Basically they want people to be educated when operating a drone.Flying a drone in city parks or federal land might be illegal and allowed only in certain areas.Check their rules before going out there.

We are writing this because we obviously get so many questions about our pricing and why it is priced that way.
Video Production companies are first and foremost a business entity.If it is not run as a business you won’t be around for long.Yes there are bargain prices out there on Craigslist where someone would be willing to do your project for next to nothing.However if you are a business owner and your reputation is at stake you don’t want to take the chance on a hit or miss.
Denver is considered a major television market,number 17 in the country but it should be higher.The listings are based upon population,but Denver’s TV stations produces many national journalists from this market. There are also many talented video companies here.
So how is pricing equated for a video production company?
Just like any business you need to quantify your expenses,such as labor,rent,insurance for employees and business insurance,equipment costs etc.Once the expenses are figured out you have to figure what will it take to cover all these expenses and make a slight profit.This is what every business owner does. In the Denver market you can expect to pay between $75-$125 or more per hour. The highest price would be for a larger crew and using a 4K camera.
Each project we do involves different requirements from the client so it’s best to contact us directly.

If your company is coming to Denver,you can be assured on seeing some wonderful sites., such as Sports Authority Mile High Stadium where the Broncos play,The Pepsi center where the Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets play.Coors field where the Colorado Rockies play.The Denver Convention Center,the 16th street mall,the renovated union train station,and much more.
Filming a Law Enforcement-I always thought that if I’m on a shoot and something happens what I would do.My natural instinct would be to pan my camera over and shoot what’s going on. As U.S. citizens we have the right to video tape law enforcement actions as long as it’s in plain view.If you interfere in what’s going on with the cops,you no longer have the right to video tape. The cops also cannot confiscate your media without a search warrant.
I remember video taping the killer that shot all those people in the Aurora theatre.I was assigned to cover his apartment and shoot B-roll.Even though I was behind the yellow line I did feel eyes of law enforcement on me at all times,watching me as if I would not obey their rules and try to walk over and get a better view.But I am not an idiot it’s not worth it.I’d rather be on their side than against it.If they told me to move I would.What I am saying is know your rights but use logic when your’e in the public and shooting law enforcement.
These are important rights if you are in the video production business. I have listed a great resource for those of us that record videos or take photos for a living.
Video Taping in Colorado in Federal or state parks can earn you a fine.
We were filming a commercial spot on boating at Chatfield reservoir and It was just a one camera shoot.I never thought about getting a permit,not because I didn’t want to pay for it but never thought I would get stopped for filming in a state park.Well I was stopped and the officer educated me on shooting video for commercial use in state parks.
I found this great resource for all of us that do professional videography or photography in state parks.
The following is a list of some of the trends we can expect to see this year.
1.4k cameras.Four times the resolution of regular high definition.
Some of the pluses are:Immpecable resolution.Great for slow motion.
If you are using 4K for movies it’s a great substitute for regular film .
The cameras are coming way down in price.,like the Panasonic GH4.
2. Drones-Drones are becoming very popular with photographers and videographers,however the FAA has recently set up rules and regulations for commercial use of Drones.Make sure you comply before commencing your shoot,
3.Live Streaming has been growing steadily the last few years and with new technology and a host of companies offering live streaming,this
technology will continue to grow.A great tip is to do a rehearsal before your shoot to make sure your audience can view the stream without any technical issues.
4.Cost Effective Stabilization systems like the Movi and a host of other
5.Action cameras like the Go Pro,which now shoots in 4K.There are other brands to check out as well like Contour,Sony,SJcam and more.
A good resource to check out all these new cameras and other video technologies is:www.bhphotovideo.com.
Denver Video Production Companies: VS VIDEO PRODUCTIONS
A great way for a company to introduce a new product and service is to actually demonstrate what it is.As a company you want those customers to start calling. If you go on Youtube,you will see tons of product videos produced very badly. If your company has invested thousands or hundreds of thousands or even millions,wouldn’t it make sense to provide your customers with a well produced video for a couple of thousand dollars.
Recently our company produced professional demonstration videos for an international mexican food franchise,showcasing all their recipies and food safety guidelines.The franchises are all over the country,so this made sense for the company as employees all over the country could just log on to their website and view and learn the recipies and procedures of the franchise.
We also did a video on a company that invented a hand washing machine.They first produced the video,but decided if they wanted customers to buy this pricey machine,they needed something professional.The video they did was okay,however they used no professional lighting,a consumer camera,no voice over,no music.
For a small investment we can help your company devise a professionally produced product demonstration video,that will drive customers to buy your product or service.
VS Video Productions produces effective professional videos for Businesses
In the past couple of weeks you may have noticed Apple has come out with their new IPhone 6 and the wrist watch and Samsung has improved their video technology,by adding image stabilization. All these things are good for the consumer,but if you are a business you still want to hire a professional. You may ask why,I have the latest technology I can do it myself.Technology doesn’t make you a professional. There are techniques and skills in creating a professional video.The professional video company starts with a script that tells a compelling story about the company.We use professional lighting,that adds vitality to the scene.We know how to make the video look even better with camera cranes that add creativity to the video presentation. We also have the experience on directing the talent,knowing which camera angles work and how to create flow in the production.
We also add professional graphics,other video pieces that support what is being conveyed in the presentation.We know about how to achieve the best results from our cameras,by manually adjusting iris control and other controls on the camera,that will enhance the image.
Other items include using a green screen,so you can add video or pictures behind the talent We can also offer multiple cameras in a studio or with a mobile production truck.
So yes technology can help you create good personal videos,but if you are a business,hiring a professional company can add so much more and will make your videos professional,thus maintaining your companies good reputation.
Safety training to many companies is taken very seriously and it should,but are your workers getting the message correctly using your current methods. Safety training provides compliance with OSHA requirements and protects the company from possible legal actions.
Many companies usually have one of their managers or someone from human resources do a presentation and hand out a bunch of documents and hope that the employees will retain all the information. A visual presentation is a more effective way of presenting this information,which can be used in conjunction with written materials.
What if you had a compelling instructional video that explained all your companies safety requirements in a short video presentation.
The safety video can be inserted on your companies website,or can be put on a DVD or a flash drive.The safety video can be used in a variety of ways,for compliance,OSHA requirements,for legal liability,saving countless hours of classroom time and your managers time.
Safety training videos can also be used for new employees or contractors.There are many positive uses for your company to include a training video as part of your educational materials.
Our company has produced many of these videos for all types of companies, very large companies medium and small sized businesses throughout the United States.
We can help your company create an effective,polished,educational video presentation. Contact us today for more information.
