Following The Ninth: In The Footsteps of Beethoven’s Final Symphony has been a dream of SAF friend and client, Kerry Candaele, for a very long time. After many years of production and over a year of post-production and finishing, that dream had now come true.
One of the best things about being a younger rental house is that we’ve been able to grow with a lot of our clients. Director Josh Greenbaum was one of Stray Angel’s very fist clients back when the business was still being run out of our CEO’s Hollywood apartment. This week, Josh’s SXSW Award Winning documentary, ‘The Short Game’, gets its initial select city theatrical release.
Redrock Micro debuted it’s One Man Crew at NAB this year and it looks Kessler has been working on something similar, the Parallax.
Both the One Man Crew and the Kessler Parallax are designed to automate slider moves. This is great for documentaries and interviews where crew is limited and every bit of production value counts.
Stray Angel Films is well known for our rentals, but we are also a growing production company. Recently we were the production company on a documentary about the Korean War, Fading Away.
Fading Away is a feature length documentary that focuses on the untold stories of war veterans, refugees, and others who were impacted by the Korean War. The film is divided in to seven parts, strung together and led by the powerful recollection of the journey of a 13 year-old Korean War orphan who fled the North to the South as he recalls his memories and emotions of the war.
Last week, we were hired to produce a video for The Los Angeles Fund for Public Education. There is a real problem in the Los Angeles Unified School District with about half of the students being overweight. Obesity is considered to be the most important indicator of increased future health risks, so they have decided this problem is something that should be tackled immediately.
Their solution to the obesity epidemic in our schools is a program called “School Fuel”. The School Fuel program will take breakfast in to the classroom rather than just in the cafeteria. This is really important because it helps not only to combat obesity, but also boosts academic performance.
We were happy to lend a hand with this project. They are up for a $100k grant, and it would really mean a lot if you could take a moment to vote for them. You can read more and vote for here.
