Reporting from Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean

DW Reporters “Vanuatu after the Cyclone” 12’07”

Author: Dieter Herrmann
Camera/Edit: Thorsten Joses

The main challenges:

  • A need to travel light with TV broadcast quality camera equipment
  • Intermittent power outages on Vanuatu

The Panasonic P2 broadcast camera was chosen for this production because it works reliably under the most demanding conditions and runs on very low power (19W).

Editing: In-house or on location

We provide professional editing services that make your videos shine. Some of our packages include editing on location for fast delivery, for example for short social media highlight videos or news broadcast events.

Longer edits will be completed in our in-house studio. We will edit your footage to script and deliver the final video in a format that suits your purposes. We can finalise TVCs, media releases and b-roll to broadcast quality or provide you with a HD video that’s suitable for social media uploads.

We can add video footage from any compatible digital source to your current project. Existing material can be colour corrected and/or combined with still images, stock footage, animations, music, graphics and voiceovers.

“Great Results, Good Value, Creative.

I have employed Thorsten many times to shoot TVCs. Thorsten provides excellent service especially when the client is budget conscious. Because Thorsten has a great understanding of our needs he can shoot and light a scene without us going to the expense of hiring a large crew. On occasions Thorsten has also put together a rough edit overnight on location which allows us to have a clear direction of where we are heading. It is his knowledge of shooting and editing which makes him so valuable. You can always be sure when Thorsten is shooting that you will not go into the edit suite missing a shot. I would recommend Thorsten to anyone seeking a highly competent and creative lighting cameraman.”

“My head of post production said the footage was “Great.”

And Thorsten, he NEVER says that. The best I’ve ever heard him describe footage is “acceptable” or “good.”

Thank you for the good work!”
