CAMBODIA • AERIAL CINEMATOGRAPHY • ROBERTO SERRINI from Roberto Serrini on Vimeo.

CAMBODIA • On location in Phnom Pehn and the rural village of Anluk Leak, I was able to explore the cinematic beauty of this land from the sky.

Stills from the experience if you are interested:

A truly amazing experience, as many of these children have never seen a working television, let alone a flying drone; the mixture of excitement, trepidation, and awesome wonder was a treat to see on their faces.

Being extremely passionate about aerial cinematography, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to shoot in dozens of cities, countries, and in four continents around the world. No matter where I am, the beauty of the world never ceases to fill me with excitement.

SHAKE from Variable on Vimeo.

Shake off all the worries on your mind and smile! The dogs featured in SHAKE are simply here to offer you a couple minutes of wonder and laughter. :)

SHAKE is based on a photography series of the same name by co-director Carli Davidson. The work was inspired by her own dog Norbert, whose drool she regularly cleans off walls due to his own frequent shaking.

In 2012 the Variable team stumbled upon Carli Davidson’s photo-series-gone-viral, “SHAKE”, and immediately fell in love with the images of dogs that she was able to capture. The combination of innocence and ridiculousness had us all hysterically laughing, and of course thinking; “We NEED to meet this Carli and bring her images to life!” Fortunately for us, Carli responded to our enthusiastic e-mail with an even more enthusiastic e-mail stating that she was totally down to collaborate and had a very similar vision! After months and many meetings of trying to figure out how we could even afford to make this film, we all just decided to empty our pockets, pull some serious strings, and make the video purely for the fun of it.

If you are fans of the video, there is a very good chance you will enjoy the book as well. Check it out on the link below and please consider supporting our awesome friend Carli. This is her first book, and we are certain it won’t be her last!

*No dogs were harmed during the making of this film. We love animals. Please reach out to carlidavidson@gmail.com directly if you have any questions or concerns about the animal’s rolls and we will get back to you asap. Thanks in advance!

- First footage from the new Phantom Flex4K - “Let me know when you see Fire” from Gregory Wilson on Vimeo.

Director Brendan Bellomo and cinematographer Greg Wilson were asked by Vision Research and Abel CineTech to shoot the first test footage with the yet to be announced Phantom Flex4K Digital Cinema Camera. The camera was a little more than a week old and still in its Alpha Proto-type stage when we got our hands on it.

All the live action footage was shot on March 24th, 2013 with some additional fire elements shot on the 23rd and 25th of March with the Hebron Fire Dept. and the Glastonbury Fire Dept. in Connecticut. We were thrilled with the camera’s performance at this early stage of its development and are very much looking forward to this camera as it matures prior to it’s release this fall. This is a true 4K RAW camera capable of at 1000fps at 4K resolution. Thanks to our great crew, including lead Phantom camera technician Edward Richardson, VRI and Abel CineTech for giving us the opportunity to shoot with this amazing new camera system.

Boulder Panstarrs from Patrick Cullis on Vimeo.

Comet Panstarrs setting behind the iconic Flatirons of Boulder, Colorado on March 19, 2013. I thought the clouds were going to be a problem but they cleared out just in time to capture an amazing scene unfold. Note the climbers on the 1st Flatiron.
