5 Things We've Been Watching : August 2022
We love video here at PEG (obviously) and talk about it pretty much non-stop. So, we wanted to share with you five things that caught our eye, started a conversation or gave us a little inspiration over the last month.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return | Official Trailer | Disney+
Why it’s a thing: We have seen this style of large LED screen video used many times in sports, but its rare to see it in a documentary like this one. But it works SO well. here. Seeing these actors watching iconic Star Wars scenes as the are so small in front of it, the light reflecting off their faces, is extremely impactful and it really captures the grandeur of the franchise.
DJI Mavic 3 - Flying Over Mount Everest
Why it’s a thing: Stunning views aside (because this video is FULL of them), there are other things to love about this video. Even without words, it told a complete story and took us on a full journey. Our main question though - as drone pilots ourselves - is how many drones did they lose during this epic adventure?
Netflix - History 101
Why it’s a thing: This show packs a lot of information into short 20-minute episodes. They expertly blend video, animation and narration to explain complicated subjects with fun infographics and examples. It feels modern, yet timeless with a wide variety of clips, and keeps us wanting to learn more and more with each episode.
"Winning Time" Cam Op BTS
Why it’s a thing: We always appreciate a camera op that is willing to do the most to get the shot. And this one is pretty impressive. We can't roller blade at all - let alone do it in a perfectly choreographed scene with camera gear strapped our backs. Kudos to this guy.
‘I couldn’t quite believe it’: QR codes improve TV ad response rate...
Why it’s a thing: We agree with this headline. We couldn't quite believe it, but QR codes have been the comeback kid of the last few years. TV ad response rates are pretty low, but, according to this study, ads with QR codes have a response rate that is almost doubled! What?! Now, mind you that is a rise from about .3 to a range of .3 - .8. But it is still a pretty substantial increase when you compare. We are curious to see how this plays out.
