Power & Light Video Production -- Idaho & Pac NW
Power & Light specializes in professional high-definition digital video production, including 30-second television commercial design. At Power & Light, we believe in the power of Alchemy - the melding of magic and science. To us, professional video work is more than just shooting and editing; it's imagination, creativity, experience and instinct. We utilize top-of-the-line equipment and software, (plus Steadicam Pilot). Whether it's a TV spot, corporate training, documentary or more, we bring over 20-years experience, passion, energy and dedication to our work - every project, every time.
Power & Light has been in the industry since 1988.
Power & Light currently shoots video using a pair of Canon XH-A1 3CCD HDV 1080i high-definition professional video camcorders with 20x zoom lens and wide-angle adapters. Video and audio data is then transferred to over 10 terabytes of hard drives and high-speed RAID arrays and edited on a pair of high-speed Windows PCs utilizing 12 Xeon processors and 12 gigabytes of fast RAM between them.
Production software is anchored by Adobe's Creative Suite 4 Production Premium, which includes Premiere Pro for video editing, After Effect for compositing and animation, Photoshop and Illustrator for graphic design, Adobe Audition for audio editing and sweetening, and Adobe Flash for converting video for use on websites and Internet streaming. Power & Light's arsenal of video and audio tools also includes plug-ins and software from Cineform, Filter Forge, Particle Illusion, Red Giant, Sorenson Media, Trapcode, Video Copilot, Zaxwerks and more. We also own a large in-house selection of stock footage, animation and royalty-free music. Custom graphics, animation and music can also be created as needed for your project.
Other production hardware includes: Manfrotto and Libec tripods, CobraCrane, camera dolly with solid and flexible tracks, Manfrotto monopod and Tiffan SteadiStick. Power & Light also utilizes the Tiffan Steadicam Pilot, a state of the art, lightweight video camera stabilizing harness which mechanically isolates the operator's movement from the camera, allowing a very smooth shot even when the operator is moving quickly over uneven surfaces such as hills or stairs.
