New Video Completed For ‘Of Mist and Moorland’

Sue Aston | Of Mist and Moorland

Here is our latest video production for the new single by Cornish Composer and Violinist Sue Aston

Sue’s latest single features haunting and melodic music which evokes the misty moorland of Cornwall.

The dramatic piano sound is softened and supported by layers of atmospheric strings, from which a solo violin emerges. A fusion of Classical and Celtic styles which is inspired by the natural landscape of Cornwall, the drama of the sea, and the evocative weather conditions shrouding the moors.

This is the official video for this new single which was released on Friday, April 16th.

It is available on all streaming and digital platforms.

The video was filmed at Dozmary Pool on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall by Genius Loci Media

Zoom Weddings with HD Sound

Virtual Weddings

We are working with Classical Strings to help set up high-quality HD audio for Virtual Weddings using Zoom.
This is being achieved using Beyer Mics via a Focusrite audio interface. The sound is then channelled into Logic Pro X and out via Zoom.
Depending on the room the couple is getting married in we can add reverb and EQ to mimic a Church or Cathedral.
For the visual aspect, we will be using a green screen with a projected background to suit the occasion. A high-quality recording will also be made at the same time to be used as a wedding gift.

Video Editing for Travel & Tourism

Just finished a fast turnaround video editing project for a Travel agency promoting tours around the Mekong Delta.

The videos answered a series of FAQs with the client talking to camera.

The project featured creating five 60 second videos using client supplied footage in portrait mode and producing the finished video in 1080HD widescreen format with photos and captions.

The finished videos were encoded for Facebook 1080HD and YouTube 1080HD with captions and enhanced sound.

We also uploaded all the videos optimising them using the best SEO practices for the clients market.

Another video featuring all five videos edited together was also created for the website.
