Friday night was a perfect time to host our holiday party at the Inn at Jim Thorpe. Food, friends and the obligatory outtake reel ! It was great to celebrate again with amazing food and spirits. Happy Holidays everyone !

It's a beautiful Friday and I wanted to take just a minute or two of your time to 'stand on my soapbox'. The new Iphone 13 commercial just started airing last week and it claims that you now have "Hollywood in your Pocket".

Well...not really. The spot is extremely well produced showing exciting visual scenes shot with the iPhone 13. Yes....actually with the phone. But what they don't explain is that there are dozens of highly skilled professional film makers helping to make those images look amazing.

Just like we do on our productions for Take One...we have gaffers, makeup stylists, grips, audio technicians, actors, editors, graphic artists, experienced dp's (cameraman) and directors working together to make amazing visuals and final projects.

If you look at the images I've posted here you can see those people and the large amount of equipment needed to make great looking images. They were only in the spot for 1 or 2 seconds....:)

You could have used an 8mm film camera with all that equipment and still come away with great looking images !!

Also, top-notch Hollywood directors and cinematographers were used to create the iPhone spot.

I believe in change. I believe in technological advances. I think this new advancement in technology will help bring more content to the internet and ways not yet imagined. I also believe this type of equipment will help budding film-makers and video-makers begin to learn about a craft they want to get involved with. Change is good.

But please.....don't believe because of one phone...you will instantly begin making movies like the commercial spot that Apple produced. That spot easily cost 500k - 1 million. Just for the production.

So when you are planning your next video project...remember that one new technological tool DOESN'T make the video look great. It's the experience and personnel BEHIND the technology that do the job.

OK...I'm off my soapbox and have a great weekend !!!

Although there is a long story behind this post (Tom Shustack, you know who you are), Take One was delighted to create over 15 videos and a photo montage for Brigadier General Chuck Yeager. His memorial service was today in West Virginia (his birthplace), and to have the honor to create all the a/v visuals for his 'send off' was just that....an honor !! Fly high General !

The Formula for a Perfect Vacation

Great news today ! Take One Productions was honored to receive a national Silver Telly Award. The Telly was for a spot we produced with the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau this past winter. It was designed to have a 1940's newsreel feel.

The Silver Telly is the top award you can win. (I know...why not gold ??) The scoring for a Silver Telly must be 9.0 or higher out of a 1-10 scale. 12,000 + entries were judged this year in various categories. Our spot won in the category of Tourism - Promotional Video

If you or a client of yours needs to get a message out to employees and the public, give us a call, we'll gladly 'dress up' that video for free !!

Stay safe out there !!

Today's location is downtown Philadelphia. Doing video for Rite Aid for an award that they are giving to an organization that helps children who have been abused or have seen emotionally disturbing things. What a great story and what a great organization.

Today's office for the Take One Productions crew, is a 56 million dollar mansion! This is the ASA Packer mansion in Jim Thorpe PA. What an amazing place and you should take a tour of it sometime.

Plus while we're there we got to interview John Thorpe the grandson of the famous Jim Thorpe who was an amazing athlete and Olympian and for whom the town is named after.

Well, things have changed a little bit since old Zane Grey was shooting his westerns at the turn of the 20th century. (His home is in the Poconos) We were truly in some interesting locations this past week including a massive Boulder Field from the last ice age and some beautiful lakes in the Pocono Mountains.

It's always fun and challenging to be out in the field shooting and overcoming obstacles to get the great shots.
