Successful video campaign for Stamp-n-Storage.com!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmjtSqKEBc8&feature=player_embedded
When we first learned of Stamp-n-Storage we had a lot of questions about his products. Stamp-n-Storage manufactures a wide assortment of organizational products for paper crafters and is currently selling them exclusively online. After working with Brett and his team and releasing the first round of promotional few videos it was clear that he had an incredible product and knew exactly how to target his market and get our videos in front of his customers. The videos have allowed his online customers to have a more hands on feel for what his products can do in their own homes and what they look like. Brett gave us a great testimonial;

Early in my efforts as an online retailer, I recognized the value that professionally produced videos would have to my customers.  It would allow them to connect with the product in ways that couldn’t be achieved with still photography.  A friend recommended FRF Productions, and I gave Tony a call.  Throughout the entire process he was excellent to work with, listening to and taking my suggestions when appropriate and diplomatically offering better alternatives when needed.  The results have been fantastic.  Tony has a knack for keeping the video tight, concise and visually appealing.  I regularly hear from my customers that they appreciate the quality of videos available on my e-commerce website.  I’ve gone back to FRF productions for updates as my product line has evolved and new products are released, and Tony ensures that all the videos maintain a consistent look.  I’ll keep going back to Tony as my business grows!

Up Up & Away! Aerial Video Platform


frf productions car yellow mazda protege 5 gopro hobbistar hobbicoWell we’ve been working for a couple months on developing an aerial video/photography platform and we are in the final stages of testing. It’s been a long road with many late nights tinkering inside the tiny fuselage of an R/C Airplane. This is a short update on our progress.

We started off trying to fix up an older gas powered R/C airplane that’s been sitting in the attic for a few years. We dusted the cob webs off and got to work installing a new more powerful engine and mounted a small HD GoPro camera underneath the belly of the plane.

The plane suprisingly functioned really well with the added weight and drag from the camera. The only problem we noticed was when the plane’s engine is at low idle it vibrates and shakes the camera, but anything over 1/4 throttle and everything was crisp and clear.


With the success on the old plane we decided to buy a new plane. A few reasons went into that decision. First the old plane had seen it’s fair share of trees and hard crashes over the years, we wanted a clean new looking aviation machine to show up on shoots with.hutchinson mn sunset from rc airplane with gopro by frf productions
Second the plane we purchased has a larger wing span which means it can take off faster and it’s flight is much more stable in turbulant air giving us the best chance of getting high quality footage. Lastly we wanted retractable landing gear, the front wheel was in the picture every time and was a bit distracting to say the least.

We took a lot of time retro fitting the new plane into a tail dragger versus the original 3 wheels on the nose style. We added larger diameter wheels to help take off and land on rough ground. Installed 2 new servo’s, One will allow us to remotely tilt the camera while in flight. The second servo will actuate the retractable landing gear we installed. Again, The reason we went with retractable landing gear is to eliminate any parts of the aircraft being in the picture.

Lets be honest, this wasn’t our first attempt…

The R/C Airplane and It’s camera set up is capable of taking HD Video and High Res Photography. Possible uses are in a sense endless with this set up. We have been contracted to do fly overs of a Farm house for an aerial photo, Lake house photos, and Video of tractors planting in the fields.

With the addition to stabilized flight from Quad copters over the past few years we are able to capture some amazing footage.

Growing Season Video Project

Is it done yet?!

Canon 60D on Field Post while Farming

Started a year long project today. Using a stationary fence post as a stand for a Camera. We will be stopping back out every couple weeks during the growing season to video the plants growing. When finished I’ll blend all the video layers together and you’ll get to watch planting to harvest in 20 seconds!
