The Basement consists of a group of passionate film, photographic and graphic professionals who strive to create stunning imagery.
We provide full broadcast Production services from script to video.
We are fully licenced to shoot, capture and process still and motion aerial imagery.
Our 3D and 2D graphic animators are passionate about the animation of ideas and stories.
We can create, shoot, film, animate, edit and interact in virtually any media to create dramatic audio-visual presentations.
Sight, Sound, Motion & Emotion. These four words probably best encapsulate what we do. We are totally focused on the business of visual imagery – static or moving, live or aerial, graphic or animated – we don’t mind once we are able to capture the key visual moments and charge it with emotion.
Probably working late and working hard, checking out just one more angle, another shot, different lighting, a new effect ….. Anyone who works in this industry knows that it’s rarely a 9-5 thing and when you are striving to deliver the perfect job you do just that.
Sight, Sound, Motion & Emotion. We have our own facilities and equipment on-site to handle our video production needs. Some of the equipment : Sony F5 Camera, Blackmagic Cinema Camera 4k, Soundevices ProRes 4444 field recorder, Libec Tracks, Libec Dolly, Libec MinJib 50, Wireless Mics, Green Screen Studio, 4K Editing and Sound mixing facilities. We also have a Digi-Beta deck and a Teranex broadcast standards converter.
We have built and operate our custom SkyJib Heavy Lift Aerial platform. This UAV is the Hollywood industry standard. This setup can carry our SONY F5 or our 4K Blackmagic Cinema Camera and allows us to capture stunning shots in 4k Raw and at high frame rates. For stills we use the Nikon D3x or D700. We provide both the Pilot and Camera Operator but the camera can be controlled by a DOP if required. We are IAA approved with full Liability Insurance of €7m. Custom camera options like RED and Canon can be accommodated under request.
We programme BLU-RAY, DVD, Web based media and touchscreen content. We have won numerous international awards and hold Technology Patents. We are constantly researching new technologies and media delivery platforms. Some prestigious projects we have worked on would be U2 Live In Boston DVD, Rolling Stones Four Flicks Boxset DVD, Foo-Fighters Everywhere But Home DVD, Deal or No Deal Interactive Gaming DVD's.....and the list goes on.
Our 3D and 2D graphic animators have over 20 years experience in the Broadcast Industry. We produce anything from small web animations up to massive multi screen presentations.
Neil Macdougald our photographer, has won awards for Advertising, food and corporate clients over the last 40 years. He uses hi end digital for his imagery shooting on both Hasselblad and Nikon cameras.
We offer full design facilities for all visual communications. From Film, TV, Print, Touchscreen devices.....the list goes on. Our designers have had over 20 years experience and this wealth of design knowledge is priceless.
Some Moments need time to reveal their story. We use our Motion control time-lapse slider rig with our Nikon D3x or D700 cameras to capture the moments. We have invested in specialist software and skills to process these images into captivating moments.
We Design and Produce custom presentations for our clients. We find Applications like Powerpoint™ and Keynote™ limiting so we made our own solution to engage our clients customers.
We can remove or replace those unwanted gremlins in the picture if required. We find it very useful for removing dirt or objects captured during our 4K Aerial sorties.
