NSW Environment Minister Matt Keen zooms in to a socially-distanced conference, livestreamed to participants elsewhere.


There's no doubt that there's a buzz about livestreaming in the air.


COVID-19 has led to businesses, charities, schools and everyone else in between looking for ways to keep their events happening while keeping crowd sizes to a minimum. 2020 has seen the sector grow, with organisations experiencing the benefits of a quality live stream for themselves.


One of our favourite Sydney livestreams this past month was helping out the Blueprint Institute, a recently-created think tank, with the launch of its energy paper. The paper calls for net-zero carbon emissions in Australia and the launch featured NSW environment minister Matt Kean. We needed to livestream the conference via Zoom and implement some last minute changes - including projecting incoming calls and livestreaming them back to viewers at home. And the feedback from CEO Harry Guinness? "A godsend...I couldn't speak more highly of Wedge-Tail."


One, two or multiple camera shoots, Zoom, YouTube, Facebook or Dacast private livestreams, we can wow your participants at home with professional quality vision and sound, while keeping your event on track. Drop us a line for an affordable and efficient way of keeping in touch with your people!

We’ve certainly felt a post-lockdown video production bounce with Wedge-Tail Pictures in Sydney. It was a busy September for us as drone operators and live-streamers in particular.

Aerial photography requests have ranged from work for logistics experts XL Express to real estate drone work, documentary feature drone filming, and even church groups wanting a new angle on their properties.

INDOOR DRONE FILMING


Filming for XL Express tested our professional drone video skills with the limited space for manoeuvre that indoor drone filming requires.


A drone and video shoot for the National Portrait Gallery in the Snowy Mountains was a highlight as we documented a high-profile portrait in the making - the sub-zero temperatures, 3:30 call time and overnight snow dump making drone operation a fun challenge. Can’t wait to post that in the documentary section in the next month or two.


TVCs AND SYDNEY LIVE-STREAMING


After that, it was off to the bushfire hit South Coast of NSW to work with an NGO on a mission to tell the stories of bushfire survivors - 4k video production and drone operation were in full swing as we worked on a TV commercial for the group.


US TV network CNN hired Wedge-Tail to produce video for their documentary short into the Qanon movement here in Sydney, while we helped a Sydney high school reach hundreds of parents and family members via a graduation live-stream; unable to host a large gathering due to Covid 19 measures, we used the latest Blackmagic technology and a simple YouTube stream to take the special moment into people’s homes (photo below). The feedback was pretty good too: ‘The finished product was outstanding!’ Thanks to Kingsgrove High for having us. 2020 has certainly been a year where live-streams have grown in prominence and Wedge-Tail is ready to help out for the live-streaming needs of organisations big and small – drop us a line.


October saw more of the same with plenty of legal, licensed drone work for clients big and small, video production across the board and more professional live-streaming - so there's plenty to update you on when there's a chance to catch the breath. Stay tuned to this new blog section.
