Gastonia Honey Hunters Baseball

When the Gastonia Honey Hunters came to us and said they were launching their Gastonia, NC, Atlantic Professional Baseball Team this year, we jumped at the chance to help them tell their story of fearlessness, tenaciousness, and resilience.

If they can launch a baseball team in the middle of the pandemic, of course we can concept and deliver a brand launch video worthy of the infamous Honey Badger. Even better, the team gets its name from Ransom Hunter, Gaston County's first African American landowner, and the team is owned by Brandon Bellamy, pro baseball's second Black owner ever.

Watch the video on their home page and follow the team this spring! https://gohoneyhunters.com/

Best wishes to you all and your families during these strange times.

Things are strange in the video world at the moment, with most production on pause. Bard Tales is taking steps to serve clients safely, while still helping to get their message heard. We’ve built a social distancing camera package that can be shipped directly to your Talent’s/Subject’s/Candidate’s/CEO’s home, is easy to set up, and includes a remote operator. That’s right, it’s a video shoot in a box!

Social Distancing Camera Package Features:

· Remote off-site camera operator (full control over focus, exposure, white balance, depth of field, audio monitoring)

· 4k UHD 4:2:2 footage

· C-log dynamic range available for color grading

· 2 discrete audio channels (lavalier and camera-mounted shotgun)

· Bi-color ring light

· Lens-mounted teleprompter (with kit stand to turn ring light into a key light)

· Remote live monitoring for you and your clients

· Easy set up and shipped in a single case

· Each rental comes with off-site tech support to help with set up

So if you are looking to do a single camera shoot that looks a lot better than a Zoom meeting, call us! And of course, animation and motion graphic videos are still very doable in the current climate—in fact, we have some cool new pieces on our website that you should check out (www.bardtales.com/portfolio). We also have a large roster of local crews who can socially distance when it is safe and legal to do so.

It is incredibly humbling to see our friends and colleagues succeed in this industry. David Van Tassell, freelance videographer and photoshop wiz we've hired over the years as well as fight coordinator of our fan film was part of the Avengers machine this past year. Amazing film, congrats David and the rest of the team.

Where does turmeric come from?

This spring, we had the privilege of traveling to Gundlupet, India for USA Today to capture the turmeric harvest on a rural family farm. Check out the article to see some of the beautiful content we captured for this fascinating project!

For the farmers of India, growing turmeric is much more than a way to earn a living. Story from Nature’s Way.

The Reality of Virtual Reality Growth

https://www.productionhub.com/blog/post/the-reality-of-virtual-reality-growth

While we've found that our clients are more and more getting into virtual reality (and choosing Bard Tales to help them create their videos), this is a great perspective for the skeptics. If VR adoption is truly moving faster than the smartphone, we're excited for the future!

Virtual Reality is dead. Dead, out, gone. That is what the skeptics love to say in the many articles pointing to the minimal adoption and fiscal progress the industry…

Restoring a dying river through innovation

Another of the great VR projects we were brought in on this year has been released. Our good friends at USA Today teamed up with Coca Cola to take you out west through VR and we were honored to be included in the post-production process.

Pro bono - Bard Tales

You know what keeps me up at night? The earth has lost half of its wildlife in my lifetime. It’s no secret that the need to protect the environment is at an all-time high. I support environmental causes with financial donations, but I want to do more. That’s why my company, Bard Tales Productions, is pledging its services to create free virtual reality videos that will raise awareness for environmental and animal conservation. We’re accepting ideas through January 15.

Why a VR video, you ask? As a leading creator of VR video, Bard Tales has seen firsthand how quickly these videos are shared. Food Network’s first VR piece (one that we were brought in for post-production) hit 3 million views its first day, and more than 10 million its first week without a penny of paid advertising behind it. The first professional VR video we ever worked on has more than 40 million views on YouTube. More headsets are getting sold this holiday season than ever before. We want to make sure that we get the most eyes on this pro bono video to raise as much awareness as possible—and we know VR is the tool for the job!

Interested? Have a friend, colleague, or client who might be? Visit www.bardtales.com/probono for more information and to learn how to submit an idea.

--Chad & the Bard Tales team

It’s no secret that the need to protect the environment is at an all-time high. We’ve seen that public opinion can change policy—just look how quickly policy changed after the public outcry over lifting the ivory trophy ban. We donate funds to environmental causes and will continue to do so, b...
