Tampa Video Production Company Films Senate Hopeful Carlos Beruff

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Just a few weeks ago our Tampa Video Production Company, Litewave Media, filmed Carlos Beruff as he announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. Litewave Media director of photography Christian Cashmir and our Florida video production crew drove down to Sarasota, Florida to film the senate hopeful announce his candidacy. The beautiful lake backdrop behind Beruff’s business was the perfect place to film his announcement ceremony. With the large crowd of Beruff’s friends, family, and business associates eagerly anticipating his arrival, our video team was ready to capture this historic moment as he vowed to “Put America First”.

Litewave Media Takes To The Sky With Tampa Video Drone

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Over the past few months, Litewave Media has had the opportunity to experience the wonderful fall weather in Florida, filming several projects outdoors with our new jib and Tampa video drone. Our Tampa Video Production Company was excited to film with the DJI Phantom 2 Drone on some of our most recent projects.

The Phantom 2 video drone has changed the aerial video industry enabling production companies to get amazing aerial video footage and photography at a fraction of the cost of years passed. Litewave Media founder Christian Schwier says, “We love the Phantom 2 Quadcopter. It’s easy to use, affordable, and accessible for filmmakers including us. Our clients love the unique shots we are able to achieve too. We’re really excited about where aerial video is heading.”

Korean News Station MCB recently contacted our Tampa Production Company to film an upcoming special about sinkholes and how they are affecting more and more cities. We filmed around Bayshore Blvd. in Tampa, Clearwater Beach and Winter Park. With the Phantom 2 video drone armed with a GoPro HERO4, we captured majestic aerial footage to support MBC’s news story.

On another recent drone project, Litewave Media had the opportunity to work with our long-time client Health-e-Systems. Jill, their marketing director hired our Tampa Production Crew to film aerial video for a corporate brand identity project. The Litewave Media drone team captured stunning aerial footage of a stately oak tree and pond at sunrise in Walsingham Park in St. Petersburg, FL.

We’ve enjoyed filming with the video drone, and we’ve also been able to play with one of our other new toys this fall, the 10 foot EZ FX Jib. We captured a variety of angles for the Health-e-Systems corporate video with the jib as well as the drone, to give the editors lots of footage and angles to cut the video together with.
