What is Studio O’Riley’s response to the Coronavirus Pandemic?

The safety of my clients and myself is my foremost concern. Luckily, Studio O’Riley provides digital services, so most business is conducted remotely.

What services does Studio O’Riley offer?

See our Services page.

Do you provide artwork?

Yes! I’m building Studio O’Riley to be a creation station of the first degree. If you like the style of my products, then you’ll like my custom artwork, tailored to your whims or your brand, as you like it.

Can you convert my video to another format?

Possibly. I am limited by the provided file-type and available technology. The age of the file and any corruption may affect my ability as well. However, at the very least, I can re-export your project in any format accepted by Adobe, DaVinci Resolve, or Final Cut Pro.

What film equipment does Studio O’Riley recommend for a budding filmmaker?

Camera

I love the Panasonic-Lumix GH5. While not as polished as the later models, this camera delivers beautiful photos and videos at a reasonable price. It also records in 4K and sports a number of modern features like wifi, focus peaking, and multiple zebra settings. It’s only true handicap is its lack of an onboard image stabilizer.

Microphone

For Desks: The Blue Yeti Nano is my personal favorite microphone. It delivers crisp sound, both uni-directional and omni-directional recording, and can be bought for a little over $100.

For Sets: The Rode boom mic is a reliable, high-quality mic, used by many filmmakers in a wide variety of filming conditions. 

Lights

Get yourself a color-adjustable light wand. These allow for the most flexibility for your money and a huge gamut of mood possibilities for your projects.

Is Studio O’Riley available for long-term projects?

Yes! I am, because I offer project subscriptions. Each subscription is unique to your project’s needs. How does this work?

  • You and I agree on a price.
  • We meet about your project and develop a weekly or monthly workload and methodology.
  • Each period, I’ll do the work as agreed-upon and you’ll pay your subscription.
  • The wheel turns on and on until the end of your project! (You can cancel any time, though any payments made up to that point are non-refundable.)
Can you help me with my brand?

Absolutely! Developing your brand is one of the best things you can do for your business or project. As a trained graphic designer, I will help you mould your public image into the one that will serve you best. What does this include?

  1. Logo Design
  2. Color Scheme
  3. Slogan

Why should I get help with social media?

Reputation is everything in the modern marketplace, and social media allow people and businesses to tailor their reputations directly when it comes to the public sphere.
