September 20, 2016 — It’s back to school time here in Pittsburgh, and this yearly rite of passage for the many kids in the Pittsburgh Public Schools has our team at Studio 11 Pittsburgh feeling nostalgic. Why’s that, you ask?
This September marks the one year anniversary of Studio 11 Pittsburgh’s partnership with the Pittsburgh Public Schools. Over the past year, Studio 11 Pittsburgh’s team has produced, shot, and edited a total of 11, 30-minute shows for Pittsburgh Public Schools’ #WeArePPS campaign. The goal of this campaign is to create videos that showcase the people, places, and things that make the Public Schools such a special place for our city’s youth.
#WeArePPS Video Content
From summer camps, to swimming lessons, to peace marches — Studio 11 Pittsburgh covered it all. With so many shoots in so many different locations, it really allowed us to use the complete arsenal of video production gear.
For instance, in one of the most memorable shoots, Studio 11 Pittsburgh covered a very special program offered in the district. … swimming lessons. Each day, groups of elementary school students from around the district come to Pittsburgh Arsenal to take swimming lessons. Studio 11 Pittsburgh utilized three cameras on this shoot to cover every angle. The Panasonic V3700 HD camera was set up on a tripod to get smooth, up close shots of the kids and teachers in the pool, in addition to interviews with the teachers and students. Studio 11 Pittsburgh also brought along our Canon 5D Mark iii as a more portable option to keep up with the energetic youngsters. The third (and favorite) camera option from that shoot, was the brand new GoPro Hero 4+ Black waterproof camera, which was used to capture some of the underwater action. The students really had a blast swimming under water and waving to the camera. This really added a nice touch to that particular episode.
From short form to long form video production, outside to in, under water to above, no job is too difficult for the innovative team at Studio 11 Pittsburgh. We love a challenge, and a chance to get creative. Contact us today to get started on your unique project.
