Crew

Hiring qualified HD or 3D crew members is one the most important challenges a producer faces.

Regardless of whether you're shooting in Los Angeles or abroad, Saturnalia Productions can provide the crew that is right for your job. Our credits include over 170 hours of broadcast television for HBO, Discovery Networks, CBS, Fox, HBO, A&E, ESPN, MTV, Channel 4 (England), the BBC, DirecTV, 3Net and NHK. Other clients include Lucasfilm, Disney, Warner Brothers, Subway, Scion, concert producers, live-event / sports producers, and over forty feature production companies.

 

Production
If you have specific crew members you enjoy working with, we can simply plug into your existing 3D crew / high definition crew at extremely competitive rates.

If we have "specialties" it's our producers (dozens of projects for CBS, Bravo, HGTV, Discovery, DirecTV, ESPN) writers (Simpsons, According to Jim, Saturday Night Live, Farrelly Brothers), and Directors of Photography (CBS, Discovery, Bravo, MTV, HGTV). We have vast amounts of experience shooting behind the scenes (Star Wars: Episode III, CSI, Spiderman II, Sex and the City 2), documentaries (Discovery, ESPN, BBC, Channel 4, NHK, HBO) and reality series (Bravo, HGTV, Esquire, MTV, Fox Sports).

For multi-cam 3D or HD production, we use fiber back cameras - Panasonic HDX900s, Sony F900s or Panasonic AG-3DP1s (Guns N' Roses, Beach Boys, Maroon 5, Jason Mraz, Muay Thai Kickboxing Championship, various HBO Boxing events).

Crew we can provide, in Los Angeles or abroad, include:

  • Supervising Producer / Show Runner
  • Producer
  • Associate Producer
  • Technical Producer
  • Line Producer
  • Field Producer
  • Product Placement Producer
  • Production Coordinator
  • Director
  • 1st AD

  • Assistant Cameraman
  • DIT / Video Engineer
  • Grip

We've sourced thousands of hours of broadcast footage since 1999, so we know the best crew in Los Angeles and abroad. Of course, you may choose to simply use us for one of our services, like HDX-900 camera rental or a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ pilot. However, the advantage of hiring Saturnalia Productions for start-to-finish production is that you will not have issues in production and post.

 

Post Production
As one of the earliest adopters of high-definition in the United States, we've shepherded hundreds of productions through post.  Our 3D and HD post services include:

  • Offline editing
  • Online editing (if neccessary)
  • Audio mix and sweetening
  • Graphics
  • Motion graphics
  • Color-correction
