Camera 2020 TASKS

Truck smalll

Camera Study

AE: 408.914.5273

Our goal is to capture normal activities while engaged in a web call.  
Emphasize moving around during these activities.  Think of it as less of a Zoom call and more of the future where you may be on a call, cooking dinner or cleaning the house and its the camera's job to find you rather than it being your job to stay in focus.

 

Plan ahead...do you have an extra tripod for the 360 videos?
