'Marvel' at the Ending Credits

Category: video production



I just finished watching Avengers Infinity War and have to say, wow what a movie. I mean what a great way to kick off summer, right?! The movie brought together tons of Marvel characters, it meticulously twisted multiple plot lines, had a super-believable, well-acted villian, jokes for days, character development, love story and still managed to give us the amazing special effects filled action sequences we've come to expect from these movies. My god what a great movie. How did they do it? 


This isn't a review b... Continue reading

The Need to be Liked


How important is it for your brand to be liked? 


Recently I have been reading Rohit Bhargava's book "Likeonomics" about the importance of likability in business. I know it sounds very hipsteresque, but the book quickly dissolves those notions by showing you how in our modern world, earning trust may be the hardest burden a business has to bear.


What is it we all want from our business? We want them to be successful, we want them to be profitable and we want them to serve their purpo... Continue reading

"We goin' on vacation y'all!"


My absolutely favorite part of this job is travel. Why? You get to see the different places and things while also working for the monies! Well that, and I have a weird affinity for hotel rooms - I don't know what it is but something about relaxing in a small room that gets magically cleaned everyday does it for me. Travel can be one of the best parts of working in video production but it can also be one of the most expensive parts. Not every job has the budget to fly a 5 person... Continue reading

What is a video editor?

Or is it someone who knows how to create amazing animated explainer videos with moving graphics and eye catching visuals... Is an editor someone who knows where to make a cut, time a musical score, build tension and create action?  Are they someone who can take a finished piece and manipulate an invisible color palette to create mood for an audience? Or... Continue reading

First Pillar Studios in the Jungles of South America? 


Amazing, exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time! Having feet on the ground in South America, although exciting, it’s incredibly dangerous in regards to the safety of our equipment and crew. Last year we had invested in Pelican waterproof cases. The cases are strong and sealed with a waterproof "O" ring . We have field tested them in five states across North America and find them to be incredible. 


Rain, dust and general dropping are no... Continue reading

MESSAGE US NOW

Musicians, creatives, writers, directors - we call ourselves all kinds of "interesting" names but we are really just great friends. Brendon Paredes, the owner of Brevard's own Studio 101, has been a staple in the Audio Engineering industry  for almost two decades. His passion for artists and every single person who walks through his doors transfers right into First Pillar. In 2015 Brendon went to the Grammys for his work with the last recordings of Bob Marley.  Brendon's drive and willingness to go above and beyond is met by Mike Ramsdell's own belief that video has real power to affect people. Mike has made a career out of being creative. He's worked with some of the biggest names and companies internationally and now has set his eye back on his home town of Melbourne, FL. In 2012 and 2014 Mike was part of an Emmy Award Winning team out of Tampa Florida and looks forward to bringing that success to First Pillar Studios.

 

First Pillar Studios stands for quality. This mantra extends outward into our team and our family. We work with a close knit group of people who care not only about each other but about the projects they work on. Though we keep our production team small, our core team can extend out to sub-contractors if a project calls for it. In the past we have scaled up anywhere from 5 - 20 people to compensate for larger video production projects. We can handle any creative production, any size, from beginning to end - and we can do it better than most. We extend a helping hand to anyone starting a new project - if you have questions about where to begin, just give us a call.
