Welcome to the beginning of an adventure.
We’re about to embark on a journey flying Alaska, sailing Alaska and beyond with drones and underwater equipment.
We’re working on getting this site officially launched on 1/1/2018. However we’ll be pushing out newer versions as we move along towards that date.
The Sno Bird Team consists of a well balanced and devoted crew. We operate boats, drones, 4×4 land transport and submersibles (ROV’s) documenting what we see. We’re pretty sure you’ll like what ‘you’ see also.
To the VERY select few who have access to this while under construction, Keep Watching. This is a work in progress, stay tuned
You may think that producing a video documentary does not require a script. Sure, you can go out and shoot lots of footage and come back to the editing room and piece video clips together and create a coherent story. It’s a lot easier if you at least put together an outline of your film in advance. That outline is your script.
What Is Video Production
The process of pre-production and writing a script often begins with asking questions such as, “Who should I interview?” “Where and when am I going to film?” “What style of shooting will I use?” “What do I want the viewer to feel/do when the video is over?”
All of these elements play a role in the pre-production and writing process.
Part of what is intriguing about documentary film production is that so much of it is not scripted. You can’t force someone to say exactly what you want. If you do, you are now making commercials or movies.
Your research should lead you to understand that a particular interviewee may have suffered a great loss and you want to have them explain to you, in their own words, how that loss affected them and their family. You can get the essence of what you are looking for by asking the right questions during the interview. You can lead your subject in this way, but in the end, they will describe their situation in their own words. Having a “pre-shoot” script will allow you to get at the most relevant facts and stories that you need to present the bigger picture you are trying to convey.
CANON IVIS HF M32 is offering. First up is the dual flash memory that the camera is named for. The HF M32 features a 64GB internal flash memory and the option to use SDHC or SDXC memory cards for up to 48 hours of recording time (64GB card in LP mode). The camera also features something called, “Relay Recording” which automatically switches from the internal memory to the SD memory card when the built-in memory becomes full.
Aside from good-sized memory capacity, the HF M32 touts another much sought after feature: 1920 x 1080 high def recording. The M32 gives you the option to record in 24p or 30p (at 60i) for a film-look or for video that’s well suited to viewing on the ‘net. Assisting in capturing all that HD video would be the camera’s 3.89MP CMOS sensor, Canon’s DIGIC DV III Image Processor, and 24Mbps recording for AVCHD. And, let’s not forget the Genuine Canon 15x HD video Lens.

Our Camcorder Video Camera’s
is an interchangeable lens camcorder featuring a Super 35mm sensor equivalent in size to Super35mm film cameras ( same as PMW-F3), and a Sony E-Mount 18 to 200mm zoom lens. Developed specifically as a digital motion camcorder, it captures fine detail and image texture with image fidelity, low noise and wide exposure latitude.
It includes a Sony 18 ~200mm E-Mount lens. Sony’s E-mount interchangeable lenses feature precision-crafted optics with aspherical glass elements for compact high performance, and circular iris mechanisms for smooth background defocusing.
Equipped with a large CMOS sensor equivalent in size to Super35mm film like that used in the PMW-F3, it is able to create a rich bokeh effect (beautifully defocused image) to produce the much-desired shallow-focus look associated with top-shelf commercials and feature films. The sensor also features the optimum number of effective pixels for shooting HD moving images. This new sensor is designed with outstanding exposure latitude and sensitivity to deliver extraordinary HD images subtle in detail and color gradation while avoiding image artifacts typical of HDSLRs
Our DSLR Camera’s
Is proud to present Our highly anticipated EOS 5D Mark III. With supercharged EOS performance and stunning full frame, high-resolution image capture, the EOS 5D Mark III is designed to perform. Special optical technologies like the 61-Point High Density Reticular AF and an extended ISO range of 100–25600 expandable to 50 (L), 51200 (H1) and 102400 (H2) make the EOS 5D Mark III ideal for shooting weddings in the studio or out in the field, and great for still photography. Advanced professional-level high definition video capabilities (that includes a host of industry-standard recording protocols and enhanced performance) make it possible to capture beautiful cinematic movies in EOS HD quality. A newly designed 22.3 Megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, Canon DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, and shooting performance up to 6.0 fps provide exceptional clarity and sharpness, even when capturing rapidly-unfolding scenes.
Our Land and Mountain Vehicle Service Transport
Takes the Heavy Duty Ram truck’s strengths, like its solid axles front and rear and coil-link suspension, and builds upon them for the Power Wagon. To increase articulation in the three-link front suspension, engineers developed a new high movement joint. This joint allows more flex in the suspension to keep the tires on the ground in rough terrain.
In particularly tricky or muddy spots, the Power Wagon’s locking front and rear differentials can pull the truck through. In fact, with all these systems engaged, it’s pretty tough to get this Ram stuck. But if you manage to do it, there’s a Warn electric winch hidden behind the front bumper.It can tow more than 10,000 pounds.

“Back then this was SNOBIRD PRODUCTION big desire. As Movie Production we shot, arranged and cut more minutes of film than many directors get to do over their entire career. While this doesn’ t count as filmography, we did learn a lot doing it. And my work stood out because we always tried to tell a story, even if just reporting on a car crash, Documentary film or even sailing the sea worldwide. Which is what all movie makers should be doing. Otherwise you can use a smartphone too, simply holding it and shooting.”
Our team takes great care in approaching every production with passion, vision and a focus on emotional storytelling. We have the tools and artistic vision needed to transform each story into a true cinematic experience. We step into the world of creativity to provide each couple with something unique and memorable.
