Production

ARL West

Creative Liquid and our teaming partner Virtuo Group Corporation, provide video production services to the public affairs office of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. These videos often focus on science and technology and careers in STEM fields. ARL West was produced in fall 2018 in coordination with the client. Production took place in Southern California at various industry and academic partners that work with the Army. Editing took place at our facility in Virginia.

Citizen Honors Profile

Creative Liquid has provided video production services to the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation for several years. Each spring the Foundation honors citizen heroes. Our team produces a profile video of each honoree. This video was produced in early 2019. Our crew recorded the content on location in Bakersfield, California and then edited the story at our headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. This video tells the story of Blaine Hodge and was shown at a dinner in Washington, D.C.

Practicals - Compression and Data Rates

Camera Compression

Often, I’ll hear newer shooters or filmmakers complain about having trouble manipulating and refining their footage in post, especially DSLR footage or more affordable cinema cameras. This is mainly due to compression. Think of it like a funnel. In order for a useful amount of video footage to fit onto small memory cards like SD cards, a digital cameras computer has to constrict the amount of information that’s saved.
