100% Remote Video Production

We FedEx a kit with the following:
  • 4K Canon Camera, Small Tripod, Media (2 Cards)
  • Ring Light
  • Skytronn Road Warrior
  • Microphone process
  • And, if requested, a teleprompter.
We give the subject access to a video on our site which shows exactly how to set everything up.  Our tech is available remotely at the time of the “unboxing”. to guide the subject through the setup process on FaceTime.
A link is sent to the client(s) who can join the shooting process via vMix.  This enables the clients to look directly through the taking lens  The prompter operator uses this link to watch and listen to the subject as he/she operates the prompter remotely.
The camera is set to record on both cards simultaneously so  at the end of the session, the camera cards can be FedExed to two different addresses for safety.

Single Operator Remote Video Production

One professional cinematographer visits the subject.
The cinematographer sets up a professional 4K camera such as a C300 or BMPC 6K, tripod, mic and 3 point lighting.
The Skytronn Unit gives remote viewers, as well as the prompter operator, direct view and control of the process.
If requested, our cinematographer shoots some ‘B Roll”
As there are many ways the various elements can be assembled as well as the total days rental we request you call for an estimate.

Post Production

The raw footage can be sent to the client for post or we can do it in our edit /EFX suite.

the Skytronn Setup

The Talent Unit of the Interrotron Mark III sits on the main tripod and on HDSDI or HDMI cable. The Cable goes into the Skytronn System which captures the video and makes it available to the built-in MAC Mini and Audio Device.  A touch screen on the device accesses the internal computer which is loaded with all needed Software including: OBS, Skype Pro, Zoom, Bluejeans, etc.

Audio goes in and out of the Skytronn with standard XLR ports.

Video and audio out from the Zoom session is accomplished with an HDMI cable from the laptop to the monitor on the Interrotron.

Audio in and out is the responsibility of the sound recordist A1. He/she will need to get the talent’s voice into the laptop and get the sound form the director’s Zoom session out of the laptop.  The A1 will also need to insure there is no feedback.
