Limelight Films headed back to west Texas this month to work with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center again.  This time, producing a film that will be featured during National Philanthropy Week in November.  The 6-day production schedule took place in Amarillo and Lubbock capturing numerous motion control shots and we got out the drone to capture aerial footage of their campuses in Abilene and Amarillo.

David Robinson Museum

Steve Harding Design, Inc. called on Limelight Films to produce numerous multimedia presentations that will be displayed in the new David Robinson Museum in San Antonio, Texas.  During the last 10 months we've been editing three videos and 31 audio presentations in English and Spanish.  The project showcases the life and career of San Antonio Spurs Center, David Robinson and his commitment to children's education.  The new museum will open in October 2017.

Full Life Counseling Web Videos

The week of July 4th, we found ourselves partnering with David Dotson at Full Life Counseling.  He's is a Aggie (don't hold that against him) who has a passion for working with couples to transform their relationship into something that is a blessing to both individuals.  Limelight Films created 4 short web videos to give the viewer a better sense of who David is and what he has to offer his clients.  David is a great guy who I am proud to call my friend. You can learn more about him at Full Life Counseling.

Still Photography at Houston Methodist

Although filming cinematic video is our usual fare, the Limelight crew was at Houston Methodist in the Texas Medical Center shooting still photography of some of their physicians.  The portraits will be featured in an upcoming issue of Pulse Magazine, published by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

Rice University Social Sciences Film

Rice University called on Limelight Films again this month to produce a film for the School of Social Sciences.  Production took place on campus over 2-days and featured faculty and students.  The School of Social Sciences at Rice focuses on how people think and act as individuals and in society and seek to uncover facts about the social world.  The project is currently in post-production and should be launched this summer.

Visiting My Alma Mater

This week I had the pleasure to travel back to my alma mater, Sam Houston State University to talk to the students in the film school there.  Nearly 60 Bearkats gathered in the Dan Rather Mass Communications building and they asked a lot of great questions about pre-production planning and how to increase your production value using sliders, gimbals and drones.  It was great meeting everyone and I always enjoy my trips to Huntsville when I visit SHSU.

Aerials for Noble Drilling

Noble Drilling Services called on Limelight Films to capture aerials of their rigs that are preparing to head out to the Gulf of Mexico.  The 4K footage was shot with our DJI Mavic Pro drone and production took place both in Port Aransas and Port Isabel, Texas.  You can check out some of the footage HERE on our Aerial Demo.
This month, Limelight Films was featured in Houston Remodeling magazine for a photoshoot we did for Devine Renovations.  The full-page spread showcased two homes in the Pearland, Tx area that Devine Renovations had completely remodeled the kitchen, living room and master bathroom.  Check out all the magazine photos here.

Limelight Films Takes Flight

Beginning this year, Limelight Films is excited to announce the addition of aerial drone cinematography to our service line.  As part of our objective to be able to "move" the camera more for our clients using motion control sliders and 3-axis gimbals, our new DJI Mavic Pro 4K drone is the perfect complimentary tool.  Limelight Films is a fully insured UAS operator and is in the process now of obtaining our FAA Pilots Certification.  Check out our new Aerial Demo to see what we can do for you.

NCAA Football TV Commercial

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Campaign

During most of August and September, the Limelight Films team traveled across west Texas to Lubbock, Amarillo, Abilene and Odessa.  These were our production locations on the campuses for
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.  We are producing four films that will be used to kick-off their $150M capital campaign "Your Life • Our Purpose" in November.

Voices For Children

Child Advocates of Fort Bend County called on the Limelight crew  to partner on a new fundraising film for their "Voices for Children" campaign.  The film tells the story of a 15 year old boy who, with the help of CAFB will enable him to be adopted by Christmas.  We shot numerous interviews with the CPS case workers, CASA volunteer and the boy's new adoptive parents.  Our goal is to bring an awareness of all the good CAFB is doing for children by providing a voice, healing their hurt and breaking the cycle of abuse.  The film will debut at an upcoming fundraising breakfast in September.
