Outdoor/Action Videography and Color Grading
Quality Videography and Post-Production without the Hollywood budget
Few things are more frustating than to wrap what seems to be a good shoot only to discover that the actual footage either does not match what was viewed on the monitor or corrections are required in post.
It's even more frustrating to try and locate a colorist who does more than 'toss a LUT at the job' and actually has the gear and experience to achieve a desired look. If your colorist has the video output of their computer direct-connected to a (non-grading) monitor, then your project has probably failed before it even got started.
Of course, just when you find the right person or company, color totally blows your production budget!
And then, there is always the classic - 'I wish we had someone to go out and shoot that B-roll we talked about in pre-production.' L-5 Imaging might just be your new best friend :)
L-5's particular specialty is outdoor/action videography, custom B-Roll and BTS. L-5's founder, Jim Armstrong, engages in night (wilderness) Search and Rescue as a private contractor. He also does detail product reviews in a wilderness setting. It's likely that Mr. Armstrong could film almost any B-Roll you can imagine or even be a videographer for your next outdoor production - think 'Expedition Big Foot' or 'Expedition Unknown'.
L-5's primary services are outdoor and action videography, HDR photography, and color grading. We also do editing and FX, but all in Davinci Resolve Studio.
Most people viewing this page are individuals and small production shops. L-5 Imaging is largely a solo operation. We know what it's like to work in an environment just like yours. We've also make the serious investments in gear (paticularly in the color grading studio) that are outside the capabilities of most small shops. We're your partner, not your competitor.
Our primary offerings include
Outdoors. Action. Run and gun. B-Roll and BTS.
Professional color correction and grading with Resolve Studio.
The next best thing to actually being there.
