Producing Training Videos with SOLO Labs
Between March and April of 2019, our Media Production students were invited to Solo Labs in Kutztown, a manufacturer of a orthotic insoles, in order to document one of the first steps in the production line. Originally we tested the ideas of filming the thermoforming process in 360 in order to provide an immersive experience, but after location scouting and discussing what would work best for Solo, we used a more traditional documentary style approach to the project. Additionally, due to the tight confines of the workstation, we opted to shoot the entire project on smartphones, using image stabilizers and tripods to achieve a few key shots. No onset production audio was required, therefore negating the need for any microphones.
