Tampa Production Company Wins 48 Hour Film Project

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Over the course of the last few years our Tampa production company has enjoyed participating in the 48 Hour Film Project, a world-wide competition that challenges filmmakers to write, shoot, and edit their own short films in only 48 hours. It’s become a bit of a tradition for the Litewave Media crew and we’ve met some amazing people along the way. This year, our team once again dove head first into the challenge and produced a short film called “Magazine Issues.”

The 48 Hour competition supplies only minimal guidelines for filmmakers, providing a genre, character, prop, and a line of dialogue that must be used in every film. Each team receives their guidelines on Friday night and must turn in their fully finished film Sunday night, only 48 hours later. Our team pulled the genre of “romance,” and writers Jason Henne and Michael Garland went to work forming a cinematic story that also captured the essence of romance. With our writers working through the night on the the script, our Florida video production crew began preparing to film at dawn’s first light.

Next, we loaded up our Tampa grip truck and drove to our first location in Clearwater, Florida to begin filming. Using gear from our St Petersburg video equipment rental package like our Canon C300 MkII and Canon cinema lenses, we hit the ground running (literally) and began production! Filming took place at various locations all over Tampa Bay, including our very own Tampa green screen studio for multiple special effects-driven scenes and a wrestling ring almost an hour from the studio.

Award-winning actress Alissa Schneider plays the melodious sounds of the key-tar in our Tampa green screen studio.

With the clock ticking down, we rushed all of our footage back to our Florida post-production suite for editing. Once our special effects team hustled to compose the visuals needed for the green screen portion of the film, director and editor Christian Cashmir brought the film together with his skill and expertise, cuttin’ up footage and taking names! With the editing finished on literally zero sleep (not even a wink!), finally it was time for submitting the finished film.

After waiting for what seemed like the longest 2 weeks ever, it was time for the 48 Hour Film Project ‘Best Of’ screening! With so many great films to compete against, the awards ceremony was a nail biter, but all of our hard work paid off! Our team was nominated in 9 categories and were honored to win the following awards:

Production Company Films Game of Thrones Inspired TV Commercials

Saturday, September 17th, 2016

Have you heard of the most prestigious dentists in the 7 kingdoms!? Litewave Media, one of Tampa’s leading video production companies, had the absolute pleasure to film a series of commercials inspired by the hit HBO TV Series, Game of Thrones (with a little bit of King Arthur sprinkled in). A group of dentists, 3 brothers from Spring Hill, known as Shuayb Dental partnered with Litewave Media to write and produce the spots titled, Game of Dentists. The TV ads began airing last week all throughout Hillsborough and Pasco counties. Check them out below!

Our crew filmed the TV ads right here in St. Petersburg, FL at the Sunken Gardens. It may not be Westeros, but with some custom set design and intricate costumes, our crew worked to bring the medieval commercials to life. Our production company brought out our Tampa grip truck to the location where filming took place for the day. Our valiant cast and crew endured heat and a tropical storm, but we powered through it all with umbrellas and tents to ensure the whole production was completed on time!

Litewave Media Films TV Commercial For Sarasota Boating Company

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Open water. Sunsets on the Gulf. Wind blowing in our hair….Our latest shoot might sound more like a vacation! But our team worked hard to get some amazing shots for boating company, Beavertail Skiffs! The Litewave Media production team spent two days filming on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico capturing cinematic footage of the boats as well as interviews that will be used for both a TV commercial and web video. Beavertail Skiffs are manufactured with advanced technology making their boats top notch in performance, quality and durability – and the video will show how they use this tech to make the best boats. Beavertail Skiffs was looking to film a TV commercial to promote their product and hired our Tampa video production company to take on the challenge.

Our Tampa camera operator, John Jones, films onboard a Beavertail Skiff boat

Our Tampa video crew member, John Jones, was the cinematographer for the shoot. He filmed on the Sony FS100 video camera which enabled him to capture sweeping slow motion shots of the boats. The first day, our Tampa video production team started at the warehouse to film some interviews with Beavertail Skiffs’ owners William and Elizabeth Leslie. We brought our Litepanel LED lights and Kino Flo Divas from our Tampa grip truck to light up the interviews. “We love using the LEDs to film interviews,” says John. “They are easy to transport and quick to setup on smaller shoots. It makes us really efficient.”

The second day, Beavertail Skiffs brought 5 boats into the open water. John captured cinematic shots filming from a variety of angles. Some of the shots included filming the owners and employees using different fishing techniques, including flight fishing, and the boats traveling through the sea in slow-motion. At the end of the day, the team captured a perfect sunset with the boats riding off into the sunset.

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.

Our Tampa video company has the drone in stock

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.

Music Video World Premier of Come Back Alice’s “Coraline”

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Our Tampa video production company had the pleasure of working with one of the most exciting live bands in the Southeast, Come Back Alice. The self-proclaimed Southern Gypsy Funk rockers had a distinct vision for their song Coraline: a Tim Burton-inspired dark mystical journey set in the late 1800′s. Our creative team was excited to write the script and turn the project into a reality with the band.

After completing the script, Litewave Media’s Tampa music video production crew scouted locations in the area. The historic Don Vicente Hotel in Ybor and Edward Medard Park in Plant City were selected as the shooting locations. These unique locales would bring the 19th century theme to life.

Our Tampa Video Production Company Premiers Film At The Gasparilla Film Festival

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Our Tampa Video Production Company, a veteran of the Gasparilla International Film Festival (Litewave Media screened 2 films last year in the festival: Jules Dongu Saves the World and ), was proud to be a part of a very exciting film premier this year. Litewave Media’s Christian Cashmir was the director of photography on the film Sisters, directed by Sabyn Mayfield and produced by Vivian Alvarez and Grant Johnson.

Sisters was among another round of amazing talent and creative independent films this year at the festival. Sisters is a suspenseful drama about a mother who becomes blindsided by a soul-scorching event and finds a way to get through it, while also exacting a bit of revenge on the way. ABC came out to do a news story on the film at our Tampa video studio. (See the link below)

Litewave Media began work on the short movie last September after getting a call from Sabyn who had worked with our gaffer Andrew on his last film. The entire short was filmed within three days in locations all around Tampa Bay. One of the locations we used was the Bank of America building in downtown Tampa. The room was luxurious and the epic view was perfect for the ending sequence of the film.

Mike Barnitt served as audio tech with Rachel, his boom operator. Anya Yuschenko also assisted with makeup. Josh Long, Pinky, Lyssia Roussel and Sasha Sebesta were all grips on the film. The remaining production crew were brought on by Vivian and her producers, who all worked so hard to bring her project to life.

After the screening, there was a quick Q&A session with Director Sabyn Mayfield, Actress/Producer Vivian Alvarez, and Director of Photography Christian Cashmir. The responses were positive and we received a lot of compliments on our hard work. Following the session, the Litewave Media crew attended the Gasparilla Film Festival’s after party and met up with actor R.J. Mitte from TV’s Breaking Bad, who also happens to be a huge steampunk fan (like us!). We got to talk about future plans for our next film The Skyship Chronicles with him. Blake Berris, known for Days of Our Lives, also joined in to talk about upcoming projects.

Litewave Media Films Gospel Music Concert in Tampa

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012
On Saturday, May 5th, Litewave Media’s Tampa film crew recorded a live three-hour concert performed by local gospel group Cepeda McKay and No Limits. The band has been uplifting audiences in Tampa and across the country with their original compositions and signature sound since 2002.

Cepeda McKay and No Limits rocks the house.

A packed house enjoyed the concert at the beautiful new First Baptist Church of Progress Village near Tampa, Florida.  Five cameras—two Panasonic HVX-200s, two Canon 7Ds and a Canon 5D— filmed the concert simultaneously, capturing the members of Cepeda McKay and No Limits, along with the live band and dancers performing with them.  

Our Tampa video production company arrived early to plan the camera angles and set up film equipment, which included a 20-foot CamMate jib system. The jib allowed the video team to capture sweeping overhead shots of the concert as well as the audience that was grooving in the aisles to the catchy songs. 

Litewave Media’s Tampa film crew included: CamMate Crane operator, Andrew Ortoski; camera operators Jamie Parslow, Ryan Zarra, Evan Zissimopulos; and Director of Photography, Christian Schwier.

Andrew and Jamie, members of Litewave Media’s Tampa video production crew, set up the CamMate jib to film the Cepeda McKay and No Limits concert.

Preliminary editing is scheduled to begin next week at Litewave Media’s post production studio in Tampa, Florida. Using Final Cut Pro and Adobe After Effects, our Tampa post production team will craft a professional concert DVD that the band will then use to promote their music and ministry.

Cepeda McKay and No Limits shares their uplifting music all over the world.
