Bonati Institute mini-site created by CMR Studios

The Bonati Institute found that potential patients wanted information about the advanced spinal treatments they offer, but there were not enough opportunities for the live seminars they conduct around the country. Plus it demanded a lot of the doctor’s time. Online seminars offered them time and cost savings. In addition they could reach more people.

We shot the HD video on our green screen stage and edited the project to insert graphic and video elements. The final production contains the same information that is presented in live seminars. We then created a mini-site that is contained within the Bonati site. It provides playback of this video with advanced chapter capability so the viewer can advance to specific points of interest. The rest of the mini-site contains text information and other patient videos.

The end result is more potential patients are reached, while the doctors spend more time in the operating room and less time in a hotel room.

The Woodbridge II
We took the usual home virtual tour video to the next level using camera cranes, dolly shots and dramatic lighting to enhance the high-end look of these homes. This is one of a series of videos shot in several Tampa Bay communities for this corporate website and MLS listings.

Wild Wings
Mike Weber is both voices on this “Wild Thing” parody for an Arizona wing house. We customized one of our library music tracks to match the “lyrics” performed by Mike, then we digitally processed his voice to get the “Barry White” resonance needed.

The highest state-of-the-art in video production has arrived in Tampa. CMR Studios is the first facility in Tampa Bay with the new RED ONE Digital Cinema Camera and to offer the complete RED workflow for production and post. The new camera shoots Ultra High Definition 4k images that are five times higher resolution than all previous HD cameras. The complete CMR RED camera package includes 35mm cine prime and zoom lenses by Zeiss and Cooke that provide the depth of field and selective focus usually associated with film cameras.

Among the first in the world, studio owner Mike Weber ordered the new RED ONE camera over a year and a half ago while it was still in development by the Red Digital Cinema Camera Company. The camera is unique because of the ultra high definition quality, dynamic range and file output in RAW format that is essentially digital film. Shooting on RED at 4K allows for delivery in several format resolutions from the same footage. Output can be 4K, 2K, HD 1080, HD 720, SD and even vertical HD for digital signage. Because the creative freedom in post-production is limitless, it is ideal for both cinematic images and special effects. The film “Wanted,” in theaters now, was shot using the RED ONE. In addition to feature film work CMR clients who will use the advanced camera include: indie films, broadcast, corporate marketing and advertising agencies who want to shoot national quality commercials.

CMR Studios can be booked to do all aspects of production and post using the RED ONE. The camera is also available for rental to qualified professionals anywhere in Florida. For more information visit http://www.RedOneFlorida.com.

NHRA
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! This is one of those traditional sound effects laden raceway spots in all it’s loud glory. Part of an ongoing radio spot campaign we produce for this Tuscon, Arizona speedway. The copy is read with real attitude then some digital magic including pitch shifting, compression, EQ and a tight reverb add the final touches.

Eleven model homes are going to star in their own online videos. Builder and developer Rottlund Homes has contracted with Tampa Bay production company CMR Studios to visually feature the amenities that will be shown on the Rottlund Homes corporate website. Unlike the virtual tours that are more common on real estate websites, these productions will lead viewers though the properties and showcase the high-end finishes, layout and design, using production techniques usually reserved for television commercials. The project will be shot in High Definition and the footage can be re-purposed later for TV commercials and promotional DVDs. Here is another way to help you build your business check out web application development.

ron_paulIt’s no debate that technology is taking front stage in the Presidential race. While in town for the CNN/YouTube Republican debate, Congressman Ron Paul recorded radio commercials in Iowa from the CMR Studios in St. Petersburg. For studio owner Mike Weber the event was mildly ironic. He used to work in Iowa in 1976 when such a technological feat would have been far more uncommon. “We would spend a lot of money shipping tapes overnight between studios to do this.” Weber went on to say, “If you would have mentioned YouTube back then, people would have thought you were talking about real tubes in their TV sets!”
