CORPORATE VIDEOS

     We bring cameras used for Hollywood blockbusters to your corporate videos. We offer unrivaled quality in high fidelity and high resolution video and audio. We create videos for both broadcast and web. We often film training videos, events, and monthly video newsletters. What separates us from other companies, besides quality, is that we provide online hosting for your video and often develop search engine optimization and adwords campaigns so your video is not only made, but seen.

DESIGN

     Logosbusiness cards, flyerssigns, movie postersbranding... We've done it all. In the digital age design can entail a broad range of categories offering endless and innovative ways to market, create, and make an impact with your customer. We deliver 2d designs, as well as designs made in 3d space. This means endless possibilities for usage in print, video, and digital products. 

DIGITAL IMAGING TECHNICIAN 

     We shoot raw and log to give complete freedom and power to our colorists. We run Davinci Resolve 12, the professional standard for coloring and D.I.T. services. We run resolve through our Ultrastudio monitor displaying full dynamic range of the video. It's the colorists job to deliver broadcast safe video and view parade scopes for technically correct RGB levels, but we value the art as much as the science. Color and tone can be used to expand and alter emotional impact. We take note of the charts, but we remember this new field created from the advent of the digital age is an art. 

WEB/ 3D INTERACTIVE

     We develop websites often to host the content of a particular ad campaign or project. From the actual structuring and coding of the site, to the design and aesthetics, we've got you covered. What's new and innovative about our sites is we are implementing a new type of code enabling 3D content for the web. This adds a new dimension to what was in the past a flat 2d dimensional world on the web. The possibilities are endless and we are excited to be at the forefront of this new field.

    While we offer interactive 3D content currently, we don't display it due to browsers being slow to implement the code, mainly Safari. If you want to learn more about the future of the internet, and wish to develop 3d interactive content, feel free to contact us for examples, but for now we recommend waiting for all browsers to catch up with the times.

AERIAL VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY

     Take to the skies with our DJI PHANTOM 3. Inspiring and captivating shots will let your audience see from a higher perspective. Now available in ULTRA HD.                                                                                                                                                  

     


DIGITAL FILM PRODUCTION

     We use only the finest equipment to deliver video content. Shades is at the forefront of Ultra HD Video, we have been shooting 4k Raw since it's inception in 2007. What this means for you is the best looking video available in the world. We often shoot with Red Dragons, Arri Alexas, and we are proud to say that we will be the first owners in New Jersey of the Blackmagic Ursa 4.6k upon it's January 2016 release.                                                                       

RONIN OPERATORS

     That's right, we own a DJI RONIN. The most innovative stabilizer and the industry standard for delivering smooth and professionally crafted video. We bring our Ronin to every shoot and offer individual services for our fellow content creators.    

                             ENCODING AND DELIVERY

     We use Sorenson Squeeze for our encodes. This allows us to deliver Main Concept H.264 encodes, the industry standard for delivering final products. We promise higher quality at lower file sizes so your streaming video loads fast, and your broadcast video looks beautiful.                                              

                                              EDITING

     The bulk of our projects are edited on Avid Media Composer though we also support Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro X. Due to our powerhouse of an editing bay, transcodes while using R3D, DNG, and Raw video are unnecessary, this can shave days off the post-production schedule saving us time and you money, This extra time also allows us to focus on performances and the message of your content. 

SPECIAL EFFECTS

     Want to fly like Superman, fight off an alien attack squadron, or have a giant robot sitting in your office? Who doesn't? We make magic happen using the industry standards for 3d composting and special effects. programs such as Houdini.                                                                                                                      

   SOUND MIXING AND MASTERING

     We edit and mix your sound in Pro Tools, we master it in Izotope RX and Ozone. Our mastering programs allow for new and innovative practices such as noise removal and the finest compression. These programs allow delivery of beautiful sound without the "hiss" present even in Hollywood films. You read that correctly, we believe our sound output and techniques are at a higher fidelity than current industry practices and we'd love to show you the power of these programs. Well Hollywood is slow to implement new techniques, we are ahead of the curve.

ABOUT


Headquartered in New Jersey, founded in Hollywood. Shades was started by David Fraunberger in 2009. After graduating Columbia he learned the art of cinematography under Vince Toto, DP and 3D stereographer on hundreds of Studio productions including Dredd 3D. David's first film under Shades Studios was Bilbo. The film featured celebrated actor John Farley who has appeared alongside Adam SandlerSteve Carrel, and Chris Farley in such films as The Waterboy, Get Smart, and Tommy Boy. Farley will also appear in Netflix's first produced film Ridiculous 6 alongside Sandler. Like most of our projects all elements of production and post-production were handled in-house. In fact the only time production elements occur out of house is when we collaborate with other production companies at the request of clients. Keeping production in-house let's us retain complete control of quality and keep costs staggeringly low. Upon completion of Bilbo, Shades Studios was relocated to New Jersey, a place where high quality production companies using professional equipment was nonexistent. Shades Studios decided to fill that gap.
