4k Video Goodness!

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.4k Video Goodness at Kansas City Professional Video Production

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!

Client review

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!Client review of video production services in Kansas City

Client review video production kansas cityWe 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!

Go Google!


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!

*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)

29 Pixel Studios launched a business podcast for creative professionals! For the photographers, videographers, cinematographers, painters, models, comedians, or any field where you are considered a ‘right-brained’ professional, you should check out Business Tips for Creatives!

business podcast for creative professionals

Business Tips for Creatives is a project two years in the making. Two years is probably 22 months too long, but alas, it is live! Episode 7 is going live tomorrow and we are excited for the future of this podcast.

From Nick- “Fall of 2013 I started full-time self-employed with my company 29 Pixel Studios. Before that, starting 2003, I’ve been doing creative services as a side hustle. Starting with nothing, growing to out earning my ‘job-job,’ making through the great recession in stride and now hiring staff, I’ve seen a lot! Staying in the black all this time, I’ve never shied away from teaching how I’ve done it. Let’s face it, artist would rather create than plan a budget.”

The #1 goal behind Business Tips for Creatives is offer short, easy to understand business tips for (artist) entrepreneurs looking to earn $25,000 – $250,000.

To accomplish this we will interview creative professionals, picking their brain for great advice. Nick will give you a behind the scenes look at how he has run his business and insight to those decisions. Rounding out the arsenal of information will be accountants and lawyers giving the ‘official legal advice.’

If you are a creative professional and would like to be on the podcast please email suggestions@businesstipsforcreatives.com. Or if there is a creative professional that you think is just crushing it in life and want Nick to interview, shoot us an email!

  • If you prefer creating vs researching which business structure to use.

  • Taxes and insurance? “Um, we will think about that later.”
