The Ukiah Symphony focuses primarily on classical music but occasionally performs more modern pieces. Check out “Kick Off Your Shoes” in our portfolio section for a trip back to the big band era.
The Tubbs fire threatened our office but it thankfully was spared. Check out the “Stonefield Lane” video in the portfolio section of this site to see some of the fire devastation near the Wine Country Films office.
This year continues to be a busy one for us as we focus primarily on live events. The Ukiah Symphony, Healdsburg Ballet and the Professional Pianists concerts are a few of our main clients.
New this year is the addition of 4K AERIAL VIDEOGRAPHY to the long list of services that we provide to the Northern California video market. Whether you need a demo film for your winery, want to showcase real estate for sale or just want to add that extra impact to any video project, high definition aerial video can add a whole new dimension for your viewers.
Wine Country Films continues to be very busy this year primarily with live performance videos.
We most recently filmed Healdsburg Ballet’s “Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland” at the Raven Theater in Healdsburg, The Santa Rosa Youth Symphony at the Green Center at Sonoma State University, The Lakeport Symphony in Lakeport and numerous Elena Casanova performances in Ukiah.
We reedited Antonio Iturrioz’s documentary “The Buddha of the Piano”, changing the voice over from English to Italian for his forthcoming tour of Italy. Another live performance video still in the editing stage is a 90 minute harpsichord performance by renowned musician Alexander Sung which we filmed at the Skywalker Ranch facility in Marin. Coming up, we will film the Healdsburg Symphony at the Raven Theater in Healdsburg and a wedding in Sebastopol.
Wine Country Films has been busy of late with a great deal of live performance video. We recently filmed a couple of shows at Parducci Winery in Ukiah and the Lakeport Symphony in concert featuring Elena Casanova. In December we will film Healdsburg Ballet’s “The Night Before Christmas” at the Raven Theater in Healdsburg.
The Wine Country Crew was in Sunnyvale, CA on Thursday Oct. 20th shooting an interview with Bill Fernandez, long time friend of Steve Jobs and Apple employee # 1, for a BBC Channel 4 documentary entitled “Steve Jobs, One Last Thing”. It is scheduled to be shown in the United States on November 2nd. on PBS stations at 10 PM west coast time.
Wine Country Films provided production services for a series of short web videos promoting radio station KALW San Francisco. ‘Creatives on KALW’ profile Bay Area artists who talk about how thy rely on the diverse programming KALW offers.
‘Creatives on KALW’ were directed by our colleague Jon Felix. They can be seen in our Portfolio / Promotional section or at http://www.kalw.org/creatives2.html
A major part of Wine Country Films’ business is live performance and in that tradition we will be filming two venues in May, 2011. The first being the Ukiah Symphony’s “Dances of Fire” featuring pianist Elena Casanova (http://www.elenacasanova.com/)playing the music of composer Aram Khachaturian. The concert will take place at the Mendocino College Center Theater May 14th and 15th at 8PM and 3PM respectively.
The second live performance filming will be of the Healdsburg Ballet’s (http://www.healdsburgballet.com/) “Dorothy in the Land of OZ” at the Raven Theater in Healdsburg on May 21st and 22nd at 7PM and 2PM respectively. We have filmed both Ms. Casanova and the Healdsburg Ballet many times and look forward to both their upcoming shows. DVD copies of both performances will be available through Wine Country Films or the respective performers.
Wine Country Films will be filming concert pianist Antonio Iturrioz performing live at The Sebastopol Center for the Arts this Saturday February 19th at 7:30 Pm. We have filmed Antonio live many times and have made two documentaries for him, “The Art of the Left Hand” and “The Buddha of the Piano”, both of which have been shown on the local PBS station KRCB. DVDs of both films may be obtained through the following link: http://www.theartofthelefthand.com/index2.html.
We have just completed filming, editing and burning the DVDs for Healdsburg Ballet’s live performance at the Raven Theater of “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. We film two live performances every year for this excellent dance studio headed by Teresa Lubarsky. We were able to hurry production in order to provide friends and parents of the dancers copies to give as presents over the holiday.
Wine Country Films is occasionally hired by other production houses to help in the filming of various entities and such was the case recently when Ascension Studios of Dublin asked us to provide a high definition camera and cameraman to shoot a bank commercial. We filmed against an all white background and the result was stunning.
Spanish producer, director and actor Love Jordina contracted with us to finish editing, fine tune, and film additional scenes for her edgy independent film “Waves”. She was working against a deadline for submitting her film to various film festivals and we worked several twelve hour days to complete the project. It’s a must see first effort for this up and coming director, producer and actor.
