Recently AVL Films was asked to team up with Framework Studio in Los Angeles to explore Africa with the Panasonic Lumix GH2. The project was a huge success and managing partner of AVL Films, Rajan Patel, went along to film some amazing scenes in Africa. Panasonic released this project at CES in Las Vegas during the week of January 3, 2011. Part of being in production is to constantly push the limits and try out new techniques and equipment. On this trip we also had the ability to get familiar with Imagewest, based out of Las Vegas, who provided steadi-cam rigs, sliders and shoulder rigs for the Panasonic and have options to take any production to the next level. Thank you Framework for this amazing experience and thank you Panasonic for giving us the creative freedom.
