FilmTeam – WHAT WE CAN DO

We are capable of producing promotional videos, advertisements and commercials, music videos, documentaries, and even radio spots. We will put together a product that is ready to be aired on any TV station or posted on the internet – or wherever else you require. We will help you with the entire creative process: from the initial idea and script to storyboarding, principal photography, post-production, and the final product.

We can organize events both big and small (e.g. conferences, product presentations, trainings, etc.) and we can also provide complete audiovisual support (tech, equipment, etc.).

For particularly large events, we can also provide a production truck (OB van), as many cameras as you need, and anything else you might have in mind.

Our subsidiary FilmPixel also specializes in computer graphics and computer-generated imagery (CGI).

We are proud holders of important international certifications in information security management systems (ISMS):

Josefína Havelková

Veronika Smolíková

Josefína serves as program manager for FilmTeam. She studied mathematics, but as a child coming from a family of filmmakers, she couldn’t resist fate. She can manage to organize anything and she also has a wonderful singing voice to boot!

As an experienced professional with nearly twenty years in the industry under her belt, Veronika can handle anything that’s thrown at her and nothing can take her by surprise. She has produced motor sports and athletics shows and social programs and has also helped coordinate film productions, among other things.

HOW MUCH IS THIS GOING TO COST?

There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It always depends on the specific project, the tech and equipment used, the number of shooting days for the project, etc. However, we can guarantee that you won’t be paying for any unnecessary costs.

OUR EQUIPMENT

Long story short, our equipment is the best. During the principal photography and post-production phases, we work only with equipment that guarantees a top professional quality all across the board. Among our state-of-the-art equipment is the Sony FX9 6K full-frame camera.

PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY (FILMING)

POST-PRODUCTION

PRODUCTION TRUCK (OB VAN)

FilmPixel

The vast majority of our equipment is ours. We own a Sony FX9 camera with an FF 6K chip. And in addition to that, we have the complete set of high-end Zeiss lenses, zoom lenses, and solid glass to go along with it.

Our inventory also includes another 4K camera, photographic cameras, many lenses and all the accessories, GoPro cameras, an Insta360 camera, slider, camera crane, walkie-talkies, three spacious cars (2x Ford Tourneo Customs, 1x Ford Mondeo), reading devices, etc.

We also have a high-quality drone with interchangeable lenses available and a 4K stabilized recording system for car-to-car filming.

Long story short, we have excellent equipment for every situation imaginable.

  • 3x Avid Media Composer editing rooms, NEXIS shared storage
  • Support for all professional video formats (DNxHR, Apple ProRes) up to 16K resolution
  • Grading using the highest level of DaVinci Resolve (post-production software)
  • Dolby Digital 5.0 or 5.1 surround sound
  • Image retouching for defects, including: changing texts/lettering, changing colors, etc. We use Adobe After Effects and Fusion.
  • Advanced work with CGI data.

Production Truck (OB Van)

Our 4k/HDR production truck is a modern piece of equipment that can handle up to 12 cameras at a time. It’s unique in that it can be easily disassembled and used as a “portable production truck.” We are the only ones that can build a full-fledged transmitter in a room (transportable building, etc.). This is a huge advantage wherever there are problems with parking and space.

We can, of course, also work in a standard production truck format, which includes voice communications and everything else you need.

  • The car is equipped with 4K Panasonic AK-UC3300 UHD studio cameras
  • Broadcast-quality lenses, including stabilized Fujinon SuperZoom lenses (HA42x9.7BERD-U48 W. TRUNK CL501A-2) with a 42x zoom
  • Fujinon standard zoom lenses (ZA22x7.6BERD-S6) with a 22x zoom
  • Fujinon wide-angle zoom lenses (ZA12x4.5BERD-S6) with a 12x zoom
  • Panasonic AK-UCU600ESJ Camera Control Units
  • AK-HRP1000GJ Remote Operation Panel

 

Sound Truck

We can also record sound in superior quality.

The system is equipped with a digital 48-input Allen Heath SQ6 mixing console with a sampling frequency of 96kHz. The output is protected by a TC Electronic transmission processor, enabling us to comply with the R128 EBU transmission standard.

The set contains 8 microport channels from the Sennheiser broadcast series, 2 handhelds from the Sennheiser broadcast series, a wireless command for the moderator, and 2 noise microphones.

We can produce both 2D and 3D animation graphics. We do post-production special effects (e.g. CGI) and other graphic elements for videos, plus 3D modelling and rendering.

We can do all the graphic design and effects for events, concerts, conferences, shows, broadcasts, and online streams. We will then process this graphic content into the image, onto LED walls, or through projections, etc.

We can also process our graphics to be interactive, responding to changes and stimuli in real time, or they can be synced with lighting effects and sound.

We can offer a 3D virtual studio with green screens, chroma key backgrounds, composite digital backdrops, virtual backgrounds, and virtual camera angles.

We work with the following software:

3D:
Blender, Cinema 4D

Video:
Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere

Realtime 3D, graphics processing:
Ventuz, Vmix, Resolume Arena

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

We often witness in our work how things can get unnecessarily complicated, especially at large institutions (agencies, television stations, etc.). It doesn’t have to be this way, of course, but oftentimes it is. Lots of people will try to interfere with lots of different things, and sadly this will usually result in a negative impact on the final outcome. But we can help you avoid all that. It’s always much easier (and cheaper) for the client and the creator to agree on things together directly, without the need for a middleman. Our aim is to do away with all those pointless intermediate steps that involve various programmers and accounts… and in turn, this will eliminate costs for assistants, receptionists, security guards, and company cars.

We want to work directly with the client and hear his/her wishes, ideas, and opinions. And we want to answer directly to the client as well.

FilmTeam is not a big corporate office. But of course, if the nature of a particular contract calls for it, we do cooperate with high-quality professionals in all the necessary areas: lighting, drones, and camera cranes, as well as make-up artists, costume designers, actors, and musicians, etc.

We’re very good at what we do and we’re committed to making things work for you. Give us a try.
