Vortex InterActive to Produce Video Showcase

"Classic JAG" - The Jaguar XK140 makes an exquisite backdrop.

Throughout its 16 years of business, Vortex InterActive has had a variety of outstanding multi-media projects. Though photography and image effects (graphic design, touchup, and enhancement) are the company’s mainstay, we offer much more. This is one of the main reasons for our name rather than “_____name Studio” Vortex InterActive is where various imaging services come together in “Helping People Visually Communicate Incredible Ideas”. Over these years we have shot and produced dozens of videos, and for the first time we are making a Vortex InterActive exclusive so our customers can gain an accelerated understanding of the services we offer.

We enjoy what we do and we enjoy the people we work for: stay tuned to see some highlights of what we’ve done and what we can do for you!

Global Water Dances Cincinnati

It was a real hot day down on the Ohio River early on, but enjoyable with the Global Water Dances Cincinnati. The music was awe inspiring with the words “Let’s Clean It Up” reverbrating in everyone’s ears. My sensor, however was saying “Let’s Heat It Up” and the camera had to be shut down periodically in order to continue video work. I found very little difference between the Canon 7D and the Nikon D3100 in that respect. The Canon did last longer I believe.

There were some good shots taken, and I hope things work out for Mark Stucker who is the real genius behind the footage. I can’t wait to see what he’s put together. He is a really good man to work with laying out his vision of the work beforehand. A lot of people can’t convey those types of thoughts so well. Mark was right on. I only hope the focus didn’t throw some material out due the lens being non-responsive, and it was HOT (in case someone missed this point) so holding a tighter shot steady with a stronger heartbeat was a challenge. This is where experience should prevail, but we shall see; there was a lot in the mix including me on the ground arching my back around equipment with beads of sweat soaking in my shirt, hmmm.

When the video gets posted, we’ll place a link to the outstanding performances given by talented dancers, singers, musicians, and artists. Special thanks to Shari Lauter, Music Composer/Director and Fanchon Shur, Artistic Director and Lead Choreographer for the last minute inclusion to something I was greatly looking forward to doing!
