Another Family Circle Cup has come and gone, and PDA was there in full force again this year!
We provided stages, truss structures, lighting as well as production support for all of the off-site VIP parties. The PDA video team was also there to capture all the action, creating vignettes for the jumbotron and filming the tennis and fans for next year’s commercial.
Check out a few photos we snapped along the way, as well as some of the videos produced!
We were onsite at dozens of events throughout the weekend capturing footage and producing interviews for our editorial team to craft into Daily Recaps. We are also thankful for the opportunity to create a tribute video for Southern Culinary legend Frank Stitt who was honored at this year’s festival.
This was also PDA’s 8th year as the main production vendor for the festival and we provided all of the sound, lighting, video and staging for the Piggly Wiggly and Jet Blue Grand Tasting tents, SCE&G Celebrity Kitchen and the Southern Foodways Alliance Culinary Hub. Our big hit was the silverware projected on the walkway to the SC Aquarium for the opening night event and the 40′ tall poster we projected on the front of the building.
And for energy and the love of food – over 40 boxes of Girl Scout cookies were eaten by the PDA crew throughout the week.
In calendar year 2013, we will be covering each event in the Half-Moon Outfittersrace series, taking us outdoors and into the beautiful landscapes of Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and Athens.
When not on the trail, our cameras will be recording intimate live, acoustic performances produced in Half-Moon’s flagship store. After filming the likes of Warren Haynes, the Infamous Stringdusters, Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Matisyahu, among others, just last year, we can’t wait to see who performs next.
Stay tuned for a sit down with rock climbing legends Alex Honnold and Chris Sharma. New in 2013 will be our product reviews filmed on location at Half-Moon’s LEED certified headquarters/warehouse in North Charleston…it’s going to be fun to get recommendations on the latest in outdoor adventure gear directly from expert Half-Moon staff members.
Finally, we will continue our “Beat The Drum” customer service web series featuring Half-Moon Outfitters’ owner Beezer Molten and the biggest names in the outdoor industry.
Meet PDA’s newest team member, Keith Bradshaw. Keith joins PDA as its director of photography.
Keith is a truly a jack of all trades….well a Keith of all trades. Before starting at PDA Keith operated a recording studio, worked as a fine art photographer and played guitar in a reputed band (he also shot video for us as a freelancer). When asked why he wanted to leave the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle and work for us full time, he explained that combining photography and music with video has given him a new life of creative output. This move was a natural progression in his career. Keith brings an extensive inventory of incredible gear and an amazing eye; this combination insures that we produce artfully crafted videos for our customers.
PDA Video was born in 2007 and has experienced significant growth over the past five years. We are very proud of the media we are producing for our national, regional and local clients…and want to offer even more.
Enter PDA :60. An affordable way to create a 60 second video to tell a compelling story.
It became evident that any company, large or small, can benefit from the production of a company video.
YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Vimeo, blogs and websites – all places where video can find a home. So why doesn’t every business have one? Many companies still find the production of high quality video to be cost prohibitive.
Our seasoned crew (with over 500 video projects under our belt) has the experience to tell your story in a unique way. Even better, we have developed efficiencies that now allow us to capture these stories without maxing out a marketing budget.
So what does this new service include you ask?
- Four hours of in-field production shot at your place of business
- Four hours of post production
- Interviews, music and stunning HD footage
- Edited to highlight the company’s mission
