Ohh the 4k Video Goodness! Yes, we added the camera a few months back (and yes, they announced the mark II version 60 days later). Yes, we have used the Sony FS7 on a handful of projects between then and now.
BUT, I’ve kept my foot off the throttle of the 4k Video Goodness until feeling very comfortable with the new camera. **Not about to bring the camera to a client’s shoot without being ready.
One of the advantageous of running your own business is you get to decide which 20 hours a day you get to work! It probably would have been a great idea to schedule a couple days to do nothing but test and practice this camera on projects for fun. Instead we took the slow and steady pace.
Recently we produced a few videos for the fantastically awesome C.W. Parker Carousel Museum! TripAdvisor has 4.5 stars with 78 Reviews! W00t!
The final videos are in the final stages NOW! But we wanted to share a preview of the 4K Video Goodness!
We are bringing cinema to a run and gun style of filming. For the interview parts, we of course used lights to get the scene perfect but capturing action while it unfolded in front of us, that’s what this short video demonstrates!
We plan on sharing the final videos in a later post. 29 Pixel Studios delivered a 10-minute short documentary. We then rendered out a 60-second and 30-second commercial to be used on Leavenworth’s Channel 2. Finally, there was such an amazing volunteer effort to maintain this historic museum, we created a 30-second piece highlighting the community effort.
For our video production services, 29 Pixel Studios is extremely competitively priced! We added the FS7 (along with other heavy hitting inventory) late last year and committed to keeping our prices locked for 2017!

We are always thrilled to receive a client review at 29 Pixel Studios!
This client review from an advertising agency that regularly uses 29 Pixel Studios as a freelance option to succeed in their video production needs!
From Mrs F. – “We have used Nick Schale of 29 Pixel Studios numerous times over the last three years and have been pleased with each video produced. Nick can be counted on to offer creative ideas, to work efficiently and to provide my company with solid video content at a reasonable price. He has produced videos with both on camera and off camera audio. Videos with humorous and serious content. Videos incorporating graphics, and he has provide video footage from both land and air (drone footage). I anticipate our relationship with Nick will continue well into the future.”
This is such a great thing to hear. Especially given the… personality that Nick has. One-part fun-loving, two-parts creative and four-parts professional!
We truly value all input from our customers! The good and the opportunity to improve.
This morning we received a possible video gig. We attempt to make it a habit of asking, “How did you hear about us?” In this case, the potential client answered, “Google and you had great reviews!”
Big thank you to the five people/companies leaving reviews on Google. We think that search engine company might just have the legs stand the test of time!
From Nick – “If you aim at two targets, you probably will hit neither. While I love that advise, it is difficult to narrow my business’ focus (no pun intended). The appeal of a B2B (business to business) structure is very strong and enticing, but the passion and love that I have for my B2C (business to client) is too much to ignore. For now, 29 Pixel Studios will continue to be a business that ‘creates’ for all!
At the end of 2016, 29 Pixel Studios upgraded capability and bandwidth. New gear same prices!
Paige the Pixel Punisher is in full swing and doubling the sets of hands at the company is really opening our availability to get our client’s vision produced!
Who knows, maybe we will double our personnel again in 2017!
In addition to increasing bandwidth we added serious horsepower to the gear bag! The newest member to our camera family is the beefy Sony FS7!
What does this mean for our capabilities. We finally have a camera in house that can do ultra high definition at slow motion. And in regular old Blu-Ray resolution 29 Pixel Studios can now do SUPER slow motion. Like 180 frames per second slow motion. (*we always had the abilitiy to do slow motion, but would have to ask specifically if the gig ‘required’ it. Now, we just bring it!)
The added color depth of the FS7 is going to take us up a notch, probably only video geeks like Nick will notice, but hey, that extra 1% is now OURS!
More people on payroll, more capabilities with top notch gear and 29 Pixel studios has decided to keep prices level for 2017!
We love our work, we know you will too! Contact us to find out how we can add value to your mission! New gear same prices!

*During some down time, I asked Randy if I could interview him to share some business tips for creatives that might be in game development. He graciously shared some time (check out episode 10 here). Then we interviewed Kevin J. Anderson for Business Tips for Creatives! (Check out episode #3 Here)
