I am based in Boston and allow gear to be used within New England. I produce or help clients produce audition tapes, monologue videos, pitch videos, and other content made for online access and distribution. My studio is equipped with a green-screen and neutral grey backdrop. Once you arrive, we'll look over your script, make any revisions if necessary, and then review the footage. After shooting, I sit down with clients to edit on the final product on Adobe Premiere. ( I am an Adobe Certified Associate in Video Communication using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015). The client walks away with his/her or their footage on DVD, thumb drive or uploaded online to a secure website. I look forward to hearing more about your project soon, Adam

Canon 7D

Canon helped usher in the DSLR revolution with this 18-megapixel APS-C format CMOS sensor. It may not be full frame, but it still makes for compelling images. And it's true that video recording is capped at 12 minutes per clip, but for the price point, you won't find this quality of 1080p camera any cheaper. Plus you can do 60 frames at full 1080p! Owner Notes: In addition to still images, the EOS can capture true HD 1080p video at 30fps. Video clips can be up to 12 min in length or 4gb in size. You can use all of Canon EF and EFs mount lenses which enables an exceptional range of creative visual possibilities. What's in the package: Canon EOS 7D Body 18-135mm lens Carrying Bag • 1 LP-E6 Batteries • 1 Battery Charger • 3', 2" Mini HDMI to HDMI cable • 3', 8.75" USB Cable • Compact Flash Card Drive • Compact Flash Card • Solutions Disk and Software Instruction Manual • For the best quality sound capture, it is recommended you use the ME66 Shotgun Mic, Sennheiser EW-100 Wireless Mics or ZoomH4N Sound Recorder as microphones when using camera. AdamCamera can provide a XLR to dual XLR splitter cable and an XLR to mini adapter cable if needed. Features Autofocus All focus points can be selected automatically or manually and programmed for priority based on the portrait or landscape orientation of the camera. 18.0 Megapixel CMOS Sensor An 18.0 Megapixel CMOS sensor allows for a high level of resolution and it's easy to crop images for enlargement without concern of losing detail. ISO 100-6400 (Expandable to 12800) You now have an entire range of ISO's to choose from simply by rolling of a dial on the back of the camera. Intelligent Viewfinder Whereas with other cameras the representation of Autofocus Points and metering areas are static, with the Canon EOS 7D, they can be displayed, adjusted and hidden, in camera, with ease. This means less distraction and more clarity to view the image in its entirety. Rugged, Durable, Dust and Weather Resistant Construction. The chassis is built of lightweight and rigid magnesium, and the camera's seals are built to resist water and dust. All of these features combine to make a rugged camera that gives you the freedom to adapt easily to changing light-levels while shooting video and images

Dana Dolly Portable Dolly System

The Dana Dolly is a straight-track camera dolly. The dolly consists of a 13" by 17" aluminum camera platform with 4 wheels at each corner that roll along track made of pipe. Track ends are designed to go into any standard 1 1/8" Junior receiver. AdamCamera can provide two of these types of stands. The entire package comes in a rolling case and a shoulder bag for the pipes. What’s in the package: • 13"x17" 13lb Camera Platform • 2 pieces of 6' or 4' PVC or Aluminum Pipe Track • 2 Dolly Track End Brackets • 2 Tripod Head Adapters (75mm and 100mm) w/ a 3" Washer (outside diameter). • 2 Matthews DV Stands with 1 1/8" Junior Receiver or Carpenters Horses to Elevate Track • T-Wrench • Center Track Support • 100mm BallSH Adapter Features Dolly Track End Kit The dolly system is comprised of two track end brackets that ensure the pipe stays the proper distance apart. Track ends are designed to go into any standard 1 1/8" Junior receiver. Flip the track and bracket assembly over and support it with carpenter's horses or similar items of matching height or place it on the ground for low mode. Tripod Head Adapters We have specially made 75mm and 100mm adapters that fit most standard leveling heads with a Mitchell mount. The dolly comes machined with a standard Mitchell mount. What to Use as Track We supply 6' and 4' length pipe for use as track. However, you can use any pipe or round rigid structure with an outside diameter of 1.66" (42.2mm). This is the common size for 1 1/4" pipe or conduit. We highly recommend using Schedule 80 aluminum pipe. One supplier is ONLINEMETALS.COM. They have 6' and 8' lengths of Schedule 80 aluminum pipe in stock, no minimum order, and they ship all over the U.S. You can also use PVC pipe so long as it is supported mid-span to avoid sag. The Dana Dolly can take everything from DSLR's to full 35mm cameras and will help you get that smooth tracking shot for your next project.
