Video: Haute Couture Fashion Show L.A.


We recently headed to downtown Los Angeles to capture a runway fashion show featuring collections from experienced designers from all over Asia, and we produced a quick highlight video showcasing Kimi Verma's latest collection for her Shail K. brand. 

The event, produced by Virgelia Productions, took place in one of the ballrooms at the historic Biltmore Millennium Hotel and was hosted by Prince Mario-Max Schaumburg Lippe and Ashley Park. Take a look at our quick video recap above. 


Video: Take me Back to Brazil Product Launch


Social media is all the rage these days, obviously, and business big and small are using these online tools as part of their marketing strategy. In fact, ignoring social media would be a big mistake when it comes to reaching out to new or existing customers.

BH Cosmetics is just one of many large companies with tons of activity and a solid following on social media, so it only makes sense for them to showcase and even announce new products on platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. 

Recently, we produced this quick product launch video for one of their new palettes, Take me Back to Brazil. Since this palette is all about bright colors, we chose a fun yet neutral color for our product backdrop, decorating it with some accessories to spice up some of the shots. 

This video was shot in 4K using a Canon 1Dx Mark II with a 24-70mm lens on the Cinevate DUZI slider. Edited in Premiere Pro with licensed music from AudioJungle. 



Just recently we came across a video on CNN that showed a drone delivering a college acceptance letter to a kid, prompting us to go back into our archives and pull out a blast from the past to share on the blog. 

In other words, CNN, we did this several years ago, and the proof lies in the video at the top. Back in 2015, we headed to Malibu, CA and fired up our DJI Inspire 1 to help out with a pretty creative marriage proposal on the beach.

The plan was pretty simple: Hirmand invited his girlfriend Negin to the beach for a relaxed couple photo shoot. One of our shooters posed as the photog, using a Canon 5D Mark III with a 70-200mm lens to capture all the action from the ground. 

I myself kept a safe distance. After attaching the small box with the engagement ring inside to the bottom of the Inspire 1, I took off and proceeded to fly the drone to the couple's spot. Check out the video above to find out what happened next. 


VIDEO: Rialto Marketplace Grand Opening


The OVS team recently headed out to the city of Rialto to cover the grand opening of the Rialto Marketplace. Over a year ago, we were on location to film the groundbreaking event, and seeing it all come full circle was quite compelling, especially from the sky.

The Rialto Marketplace Grand Opening consisted of a ceremony hosted by the developers of the the marketplace, followed by a community event featuring merchant booths and family activities. Developers, the mayor and tenants opened the event with remarks.

We were on location to capture video of the event from the ground with our DSLRs, specifically the Canon 1DX Mark II and the Canon 5D Mark IV. For aerial coverage, we used the DJI Mavic Pro to record gorgeous 4K video coverage from close to 400 feet in the air. 

We put together a quick social media video recap of the event, which you can check out at the top of the post. We will be heading back to Rialto to grab some more aerial footage as soon as the remaining constructions will be completed.
