Documentary, educational, and corporate video production and crew services in Charlottesville, Richmond, Virginia, DC, and beyond. It’s what we do. We help people make truly informational media, because your intelligence is worth sharing.
We’ve interviewed national leaders, Nobel prize winners, Hall of Famers, and every day people. Our work lives on numerous broadcast and streaming channels. We’re the local crew that out of town production houses call.
We can craft video production packages to suit your needs in any location, with pro crew and contacts throughout the nation. With over a decade of experience in remote interview setups, we can be your feet on the ground.
Flexible Service Packages
Our drive is “informational video production,” whatever the capacity. Maybe you need script to screen, concept to incept, or day work. Maybe you need local crews. We can staff solo operators, 2-camera-and-audio livestream packages, editing services, voiceover, and more.
We’ll work with you to find the right solution for:
- Documentary camera
- Interview and B-roll packages
- Training and Educational videos
- Medical and pharmaceutical video
- Broadcast commercials
- Corporate communications
Intelligence works best when shared.
A White House Interview for Daily Wire
In late March, I served as Director of Photography with Daily Wire and Abbson to light and shoot an interview with Vice President Mike Pence and Dr. Deborah Birx for Ben Shapiro’s Sunday Special. Ultra-high-profile, rapid-setup, can’t-fail stakes, all with a heavy mixture of carefully almost-aseptic gear handling and social distancing. Hopefully years of experience […]
Foundation Medicine and AstraZeneca: Production for VisMedia UK
Honestly, not a month goes by when I’m not shooting something related to healthcare… and I love it. I worked four years in cancer research. While I was a horrible, horrible scientist, my appreciation for advancements in the field far exceeds my appreciation for, say, zombies or music videos. As part of our ongoing work […]
AARP In Your Community: Sourcing Teamwork in the Mid-Atlantic
In the summer of 2017, McBob Productions worked with AARP to source a two-man crew (video and audio) for three separate shoots on AARP Community events in Virginia, DC, and North Carolina. Working as camera and field producer for all three events, I dug into my bag of professional connections to quickly source three expert […]
21CSK: Lives cut short
FirstLook TV out of the United Kingdom contacted us in early 2018. As part of their upcoming series, we assisted them in producing the Virginia portion of their episode on “Back to School Killer” Jesse Matthews. Thankfully, I didn’t have to spend any personal time ruminating on Jesse Matthews. Instead, FirstLook’s treatment relied heavily upon […]
SmallRigging the FS5: The Balance of Size and Utility
NOTE: I’ve updated this post to reflect developments which preclude me from recommending SmallRig parts to anyone. Several of the elements have failed prematurely with no satisfaction from the company, leading me to revise this post and remove any links to their products. With any Chinese company, quality and customer service is an afterthought. Buy […]
KDIGO: Mobile multicam studio production on a budget
In early July 2017, we worked with repeat client eFly Productions on another medically-themed, conference-associated production. Our task: to stage and produce a talk-show style discussion of a new guideline published by KDIGO, a global kidney disease nonprofit organization. The limitations: the production was in Denver vs. McBob’s usual Mid-Atlantic market, so production gear would […]
