Behind the Scenes with Overdun Productions

Disclaimer: geeky production stuff ahead.

Catching up from a busy October, a few weekends back was packed full of all kinds of production work, new to the mix of production I enjoy: professional video production. I’ve always liked video production, but a setup of this caliber is above the old camcorder and VCR work I did back in the 90s. One Christmas break back in elementary school I may have set up a news desk set and even a little home made lighting gear, and turned an extending painting pole into a mic boom… no tech like low tech. Later in high school put together a promotional piece with *actual* television editing staff and equipment, and was definitely hooked on tinkering with video gear. About the same time I picked up my first 35mm SLR camera and got into live audio, a bit of my own personal geeky production Renaissance.

On to the high tech big boys’ toys with Overdun Productions. Grip trucks, dollies, Steadicam, and a slick camera to drool over, the RED HD camera. Here’s some behind the scenes photos to check out.
