We, like everyone in our business, were curious what remote shooting actually means for those of us who love to shoot, remote…..
As a US based photographer with my production company, Anasara Productions Inc, and rep, The Gren Group, based in the US but me, living in Vancouver, Canada. I was particularly interested how this could work with my US clients being, well in the US.
Shooting from a studio, with highspeed internet access and unlimited wifi, was a bit of a no-brainer but what if we like to shoot outside, those hard to get to locations, where cell service is available but not always perfect?
So we decided to pull a crew together, find a location with limited cell service, come up with a simple scenario that involved all the typical ins and outs of a shoot, and see if we could make it happen.
The end result, it works and quite well actually.
Of course there is nothing like on-set collaboration, but with zoom and the Teradek system, we are pretty close.

Not that I want to make it about the $$, but have you seen the exachange rate? $1 USD = $1.34 CAD
Logistics, everything goes through Anasara Productions, Inc and The Gren Group, both based in the US. Have more questions about remote shooting, covid, or the Teradek system?
I could elaborate but really I would just be copy and pasting from Kindred and Scout Productions, so here is the link!
