Well, you are not alone. HD is an exciting technology that brings with it many benefits and some mysteries. Like, why do HD cameras get damaged when transported at high altitudes? Or, what about the unexplainable lens flares, strange artifacts, bad pixels, or pervasive frequency damage from electrical interference? All the answers may not be available yet, but there are things you can do to make sure you get the best HD footage for your project:

Get your HD camera gear from a good camera house and make sure your budget includes adequate prep days for your crew.
Make sure you have good on-set data management and workflow set-up with you post team.
Be vigilant if you see something wrong on your monitor on set.
Check your insurance policy to see if you are covered for reshoots just in case.

But if it's too late for all that, and you are stuck with the unexplainable lens flares, strange artifacts, bad pixels, or pervasive frequency damage from electrical interference, call us! We might be able to patch up your images so that you feel good about using your footage in your cut. And, because we think outside the box, we will bring both the technical and the creative solutions to the table.

I still think the benefits of HD outweigh the problems, and I know I'm not alone.

Here's what Clients are saying about VISTA POINT PICTURES:
I want to take a minute to recommend the work of Arlene Bogna and Vista Point Pictures. She came to my rescue when I had to fix helicopter shots with visual interference from a recent music video I directed. Her solutions were smart, prompt and effective.
