A few weeks ago our Director of Photography, Kevin Almodovar shot a commercial for the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Currently being aired on TV, the shot was completed in just 2 days. Using the latest technology and lighting techniques, we were able to replicate the message our clients at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center wanted to send to new patients. Take a look in the video below.

What does a Director of Photography do?

The director of photography or also referred to as the cinematographer plays a vital role in video production. The DP (Director of Photography) must have a very vast knowledge and understanding of cameras, composition, lighting, and film. A DP’s duties and responsibilities include the work he does before, during and after film production. Learn just some of the steps a cinematographer takes in making a video.

The DP is needed in the early stages of video production since they decide instrumental decisions such as how to interpret the script in line with the director’s vision and they also set the cinematic style and tone.

While the DP may not always physically draw the storyboards, the cinematographer must still go through the script and create a visual representation of every shot. The storyboard will lay out the film in its entirety so that the director and producer can schedule and plan production.


A large part of time is spent selecting cameras and lenses to create a uniform style for the film. Along with camera selection, comes the specific lens kit and lenses to best capture each shot.

The DP gets to dictate how he or she wants every scene lit. In some cases, a DP is in charge of a single gaffer or an entire lighting department depending on the type of project.

Framing each shot requires great attention to detail from the DP. Working alongside the cameraman, the DP properly frames each shot. This process can take hours depending on the film.

Once all of the production is done, the DP can get into the post-production process. This includes the digital grading and film development process.

Why Corporate Video?

In contemporary society, most businesses are applying the corporate look to their companies. Some of this is apparently visually, from logos to signs to even business cards. Other methods are less direct but increasingly popular, such as video production for marketing and advertising; more media-based-training in order to maintain that professional appearance. Corporate video is a primary source of success for growing businesses While some companies have a whole division dedicated to corporate video work, others rely on hiring professional production agencies to get the job done. Our company specializes in all types of video production, corporate included, and we have the right tools to give your company a fresh, digital makeover.

Revive Media involved in “Uncle Bobs Leg” movie shot recently in Fort Walton Beach


Revive Media Services’ Kevin Almodovar recently wrapped a shoot for a scene in the new Black Comedy Film, “Uncle Bobs Leg”.

As Director of Photography he worked with Writer & Director Stephen Baker of Navarre and Screenwriter Don Goodrum. The film was 20 years in the making and will finally come to fruition early next year.

This particular scene was filmed locally in Fort Walton Beach at Beal Street Bottle Club with local talent from Fort Walton Beach and Destin. The movie will make its debut in April, 2012 and will be featured on film festival circuits throughout the southeast in hopes of achieving wider release, nationwide.

“Uncle Bob’s Leg” is a black comedy about a man who loses a leg in a hunting accident and what his favorite niece and nephew do to help him deal with his loss. You won’t want to miss it!

Uncle Bob is portrayed by Fort Walton Beach resident, Bradford Jordan. Mr. Jordan lost a leg to gangrene after Hurricane Katrina. He was sought out by Stephen Baker to read the script for any tips and for political correctness, then immediately asked to play the part.

Here’s a little preview of Bradford in action with Brenda and the Go Cats singing “One Legged Man” for the movie “Uncle Bob’s Leg”

If you’re looking for professional video production in Fort Walton Beach, Destin, Navarre or Pensacola and beyond, Revive Media Services has the talent and equipment to deliver top quality video for your website, promo or tv commercial.

Many thanks to Melissa J. Thurber for taking these on-set stills of everyone in action.

Earlier this month Lynn Dominique, Revive Media Services and Shelley Normand, Superior Residences had the honor of attending the International Conference on WWII “From Pearl Harbor to Guadalcanal” in New Orleans, LA. They went in support of 4 of the 5 remaining USAF “Doolittle Raiders” who attended and spoke about their harrowing raid on Tokyo following the attack on Pearl Harbor in December, 1941.

Lynn and Shelley became close friends of Lt. Col. Cole, USAF, during a 2008 reunion event held at Eglin, AFB in Fort Walton Beach and have remained in close contact with the “Raiders” ever since, participating in events and book signings in the southeast whenever possible.

Revive Media Services’ web design team and video production group salute and support our local military personnel, past and present.
