Q&A with Crosscut Media

How many people are in the team ? 

There are 5 of us  –
Duncan (Director), Dan (Director), Fran (Video Producer), Sam (Animator) and Georgina (Digital Content Creator).

What is your favourite equipment ?

The Aperture Light Storm C300 II is fun to work with, as we love the great effects it can create – such as lightning and fireworks. We also enjoy using the steadicam (Digitalfoto Thanos Pro II) and often use this on a lot of our projects, giving us a lot of flexibility with dynamic shots. 

One of our favourite camera bodies to use is the Canon C200, enabling us t0 record internally to a Cfast card in RAW.

Do you work with freelancers?

Yes! We love our amazing freelance family, and work with a mix of directors, drone operators, sound operators and camera operators. Working with freelancers give us an opportunity to work with other great creatives.

How do you get into a career in theatre video production?

Similarly to creating other corporate videos, you need to build up a show reel. Working for free with local theatre groups creating content for them could be a good start – to then showcase this further to potential future clients.
