as well as high end digital cinema projection systems in real movie theaters - or transfers to actual 35mm film for national releases.
We're experts also in YOUTUBE videos in 1080p that look like MAJOR NETWORK / cable television. NO blocks.. NO low res mush.
NO ten minute limit! Have your project done and edited for ALL distribution formats and on youtube for public or private viewing in crystal clear HD quality.
AMAZING AWARD WINNING QUALITY in BOTH VISUALS & AUDIO!
We exclusively use CUSTOMIZED ULTRA HIGH BITRATE HD PANASONIC LUMIX GH13 & AF-100 HD cameras, the ONLY cameras that have
nearly the exact same image size of true 35mm academy movie film with our own proprietary modified high bitrate patch:
Our hacked / custom modified cameras bring digital cinema to a new level at an amazing cost ratio. We can shoot TRUE 24p that looks like film, and it
has twice the resolution of the Canon 5D, 5D mark II, 7D, or t2i, that other DPs and studios are shooting on
without ANY of the bad aliasing and moire artifacts that plague those cameras.
It's not just our special high bit rate high end hack though - but years of shooting and encoding experience. NO ONE gets the level of quality we do, even some Hollywood channels online don't look this good. Go to Google or youtube and do a search for "clearest encode EVER" and you'll see "SATURDAY WITH THE DOGS" as the #1 listing on all searches - shot by us - Blackout's Box Studios & Hathouse Films. We simply CAN'T be beat, on price OR quality! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO_h_Irqn_4&&fmt=37
(Saturday with the Dog's - clearest youtube HD encode)
To view full quality make sure you have a modern machine, fast broadband internet and a FULL HD 1080p monitor and select the 1080p HD playback on the right then click FULLSCREEN
We produce quality images & sound that are the closet thing to shooting actual film besides the RED ONE or RED EPIC, at a much better budget and flexibility, and we have a full kit of high end film lenses. Our cameras are adapted to shoot on almost ANY lens - true 35mm film lenses, even those of real panavision 35mm cameras! Our footage can also be easily inter cut with RED footage, yet unlike the RED, which REQUIRES very extensive and expensive color timing work before being viewed, which most small indie film budgets can not afford, our modified cameras provide an OUTSTANDING high bitrate high resolution FULL HD 1080p 24pimage right off the sensor which requires far less color correction.
WE GIVE YOU THE QUALITY BUT SAVE YOU CASH! AND WE ARE NOW STARTING TO ACCEPT BITCOINS AS PAYMENT FOR PROJECTS!
Take a look for yourself at our image quality, and remember these are highly compressed web versions, the masters look far better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO_h_Irqn_4&&fmt=37

Were you WOWed with those images? Well, to give you an example of just HOW good and how far digital film making technology has come,
take a look at THIS video - shot with the Sony CineAlta F900 which is the same camera George Lucas used to film the Star Wars prequels on:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oyi1n22QLjQ&fmt=37
While directed well, it is nowhere NEAR the quality level we can achieve with new technology and a far lower budget. That camera and lens costs over a quarter million dollars, and as you can clearly see, our customized GH13 & AF-100 & lenses CLEARLY beat it.
Our images & work speak for themselves, never before has image quality this high been available
to independent film makers and artists looking to produce major network / hollywood quality but at indie rates.
You also need the talent and experience behind the new technology and that's also where I come in. You can have the best equipment in the world, but without the talent to use it it's useless. I and my team have combined decades of experience in various film making and sound design disciplines and simply are the best
in the indie film world in both quality and cost. I was the first person ever to stream audio on the internet and I haven't looked back since.
Here's some more eye candy to wow you:http://vimeo.com/17487494
