Filming the Future of Solar Energy

Renewable energy is no longer some crazy, hippie-concocted, science fiction, nonsense. No, no, it's real; and here in the desert southwest, we're all about it. From the mighty Hoover Dam, to the sprawling wind-farms in Southern California, and the hi-tech solar plants scattered throughout the Mojave, Great Basin, and Sonoran deserts- it's all the rage. Don't get me wrong, there's something special about looming Nuclear-cooling towers, and those gorgeous, billowing black clouds from "clean" coal, but all natural is just a bit more comfortable. We had the great privilege of working with the brainiacs over at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and their solar department; those smarties are hard at work making solar more productive financially, less destructive environmentally, and totally, totally popular amongst the "in crowd". Despite scorching summer heat coupled with the lovely Monsoon-season humidity, our Las Vegas video production team got the shots we needed to make a really terrific piece of cinematic magic.

FiveSix Productions Gets Smart

FiveSix Productions dusted off our books and protractors and hit the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas! Along with our beloved Cineo HS2 remote phosphor lights, we set up a beautiful scene near the student union, overlooking the quad. We always love shooting in 4K, and we were able to do just that! The President of the school looked great, sounded great, and we were out of there in no time at all. A big thanks to our crew, who did a stellar job. We can't wait for our next Las Vegas video production gig.

The NFL in Las Vegas

FiveSix Productions loves Las Vegas, it's our home, and so, we have a lot invested into this city. We certainly have been excited to see the growth in the time since we've been in existence, and also, in the past two or three decades. Las Vegas has been, and most likely will continue to be one of the quickest growing cities and metro areas in the country for years to come. So, with all this said, we are anxiously watching all the events unfold regarding the proposed 65,000 seat stadium that will potentially host the Oakland Raiders franchise. Beyond the NFL, sources continue to state that professional soccer, rugby, specialty sports, and large music events will also be held here. That all equates to more job opportunities for the film and video worlds- which is great for us, and of course you, our Las Vegas video production friends here in town. We would love to hear from our friends and counterparts here in Vegas, and beyond, what do you think about the stadium, the Raiders moving here? Would you rather have the tax money go to the see the convention center expanded? Some food for thought going into the holiday weekend.
