What if we treated great female scientists and engineers like they were stars? That’s exactly what happened at Grand Central Terminal.

IBM Data Bunker: A 360 Degree Video Experience

HELLO WORLD + IBM = VIRTUAL REALITY

A few weeks ago, IBM approached us for Virtual Reality production consultation.
They had heard of our VR rigs and our experience.
We gave them advice on camera placement and instructed them on the use of our 14 GoPro VR rig.
After they captured the footage, we stitched it together and the video below is the result.

If you need VR production services, please think of us.

Morgan’s visual storytelling passion was fueled at an early age assisting her dad, Neil Smith, a cinematographer. The ARRI AMIRA camera she chose was unimaginable twenty years ago. Morgan loves the Cooke Optics 75mm T/2.8 Cine Prime lens and the rugged Movcam handheld rig.

Hello World is blessed to have a very talented staff.

One of them, Viatcheslav Kopturevskiy (SLAVA) was invited to the Cannes Film Festival. His film, Coney Island Queen was screened this week and was an instant hit!

Synopsis:
Two lonely people meet each other online.
She, an aspiring singer from Coney Island who dreams of being on Broadway but works at a mortuary.
He, an African-American school bus driver.
Nothing will happen on a blind date - unless they follow their impulses.

That will give you an idea of what a wonderful person SLAVA is. SLAVA is an inspiration!

When he returns, we will post an interview!

Andrew Pulaski / Movi+Reel

Andrew Pulaski
Hello World - Customer of the Month for April

Andrew has worked closely with us to learn the nuances of the MoVI and to develop a package for this exciting handheld stabilizing tool. A multi-talented Director, DP and editor at MadHouse, Andrew recalls his reaction seeing the first MoVI test footage, “that’s genius, why hasn’t it been done before?”
When he got his hands on one of our MoVIs, Andrew was sold. “The freedom of the MoVI allows me to chase after those unexpected moments. Some of the best creative work I capture is improvisational. The MoVI allows me to react on my emotional instincts and execute unplanned camera movements without hesitation. That's what I love most about the MoVI.”
We invite you to view Andrew’s impressive MoVI reel.
