Gear

Cereal TV employs a totally digital workflow from beginning to end. We use Full HD cameras that produce broadcast quality pictures suitable for mainstream television. Our Mac editing suites are loaded with the latest editing software to bring your movies to life once the filming has wrapped.

We are geared to make the video shoot efficient and unintimidating as possible. This is very important when working with regular people, who aren’t used to “Lights, Camera, Action!”

That’s why we have an autocue for when dialogue needs to be word-for-word; discreet LED lighting kits that do not heat up the room, and provide monitoring for the client to make sure THEIR vision is being realised.

In case you love video production equipment as much as we do, here’s the CTV inventory:
