Country superstar Garth Brooks took a break from his chaotic touring schedule for a two-camera San Diego music video production with Solana Productions that took place backstage at one of his recent sold-out concerts.

san diego music video production garth brooksGarth graciously welcomed our San Diego video production crew of five into his tiny Green Room several minutes early, allowing us to set up and mark all camera and lighting positions. Our video team then removed the gear from the room so that Brooks could spend time with contest winners, and quickly moved everything back into the room after the meet-and-greet. During our video shoot, Brooks talked about his latest tour innovation, “Backstage With Garth,” in which he webcasts live from his dressing room so that fans worldwide can catch impromptu moments like Garth brushing his teeth and prepping for his show. After the shoot, our crew transmitted the interview to Los Angeles using a Live U backpack wireless unit, which sends live video feeds from just about any location around the world. The interview was conducted by “Entertainment Tonight” host Nancy O’Dell and appeared on ET on Nov. 6. In a second story on Nov. 20, O’Dell presented Brooks with an Icon Award from “Entertainment Tonight.” #garthbrooks #backstagewithgarth #sandiegovideoproduction #sandiegocameracrews

San Diego Video Production Group – Women’s Health Campaign

Solana Productions’ San Diego video production group recently shot an important new video for WomanCare Global, a high-profile, non-profit women’s reproductive health organization receiving support from actress Jessica Biel and and other celebrities.

The new video campaign is called, “No Topic is Off-Limits. If You Won’t Tell Them, Who Will?” and features WomanCare Global founder and CEO Saundra Pelletier encouraging women to educate themselves about their bodies. The campaign is aimed at dispelling myths, correcting assumptions and sparking honest discussions about women’s reproductive topics, such as contraception and puberty.

Featured on the WomanCare Global website and YouTube channel, the San Diego video production shot by Solana Productions received nearly 40,000 views in its first two weeks of being posted. As part of the campaign, Pelletier and Biel have also launched a humorous new online series on the comedic website Funny or Die in which Biel and actresses Whitney Cummings and Joy Bryant discuss discuss condom disasters, birth control pills and female anatomy.

Biel and Pelletier appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to promote the women’s reproductive health campaign, which launched Sept. 28. Biel, who is married to Justin Timberlake, gave birth to their first child, son Silas, in April of 2015. The 33-year-old actress has been quoted as saying she lacked knowledge about her own reproductive health while growing up and later raised those concerns to her friend Pelletier.

When Caitlyn Jenner made a surprise appearance at the Del Mar Racetrack one day after delivering her powerful  speech at the ESPY Awards, our San Diego TV camera crew jumped into action to get the story.

San Diego TV Camera Crew Our San Diego producer interviewed Del Mar Racetrack President and CEO Joe Harper, who had escorted Jenner around the iconic horse-racing track on opening day. Our video crew also shot footage retracing their steps. It was Jenner’s second major public appearance since announcing her much-publicized gender transition from male to female. Harper said in the interview that Caitlyn’s representatives reached out to him personally because Jenner was interested in attending her first opening day at Del Mar. The racetrack president admitted he wasn’t sure how attendees would react to Caitlyn, but said the crowd was warm, supportive and enthusiastic. Harper also revealed that Jenner bet on several horse races, even picking a winner in the 7th race. During Caitlyn’s visit, she was followed by a camera crew from her new E! reality series, “I Am Cait.” Opening day at Del Mar is also a major Southern California fashion event, with women decked out in designer dresses, accessories and ornate hats. The fashion world took note of Caitlyn’s choice of a red-and-white print wrap-style dress by Diane von Furstenberg, paired with a matching sun hat. Our San Diego TV camera crew’s video appeared in a story about Jenner on “Entertainment Tonight” on Friday, July 17.  #caitlynjenner #iamcait #sandiegovideoproduction #sandiegocameracrew #sandiegoproducer

Corporate Video Camera Crew Tackles Taxing Job

It’s tax time right now, and while that may bring visions of dread for many, it’s cause for celebration for our corporate video camera crew.

corporate video camera crew

That’s because we just wrapped a successful and important San Diego corporate video for a client that provides key technical support for Intuit’s TurboTax software package. TurboTax, developed in the 80s by Chipsoft of San Diego and acquired by Intuit Corporation in 1993, is one of the most popular income tax preparation software packages in the country. The Intuit Consumer Tax Group is still based in San Diego, and our shoot took place at their beautiful campus in the Carmel Valley area. Our San Diego video crew skillfully lit and shot a testimonial interview with one of Intuit’s top engineers, then scoured the campus to record scenic establishing shots. A “taxing” day for sure, but that’s just the way we like it!

San Diego Convention Video Production – Cloud Conference

Our recent San Diego convention video production at the 2014 NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo  is a prime example of how we’re helping clients effectively communicate their messages.

Our mission was to document the 2014 conference in order to help our client promote attendance at their 2015 event, which will also be held at the convention center. First, our San Diego video production producer worked closely with the client to create a clear and effective storyline for the video. Then, over two days, our producer and San Diego camera crews shot with the client’s on-camera spokesperson and captured footage and interviews at various sessions, meetings, educational events and informal gatherings. Once the two-minute story was assembled, our client prominently posted it on their website to give potential attendees a preview of the conference experience. #sandiegovideoproduction #sandiegocorporatevideo #sandiegoproducer
