2018 Palau Show Reel released

Film Palau

The Republic of Palau continues to provide great opportunities for Media Production. As we start 2018, I would like to share with you some of the highlights from the past year and our hopes for the future.

New media techniques and projects in Palau

Over the last 12 months we have continued to diversify our filming techniques. Aerial filming with Drones and Aircraft mounted action cams have provided great footage for our clients.

Exciting 6K B-roll from Time-lapse techniques has also added to production value.

We have embraced 360 VR media and continue to develop this new and exciting form of media. Mosaic panoramas provide a new and artistic form for social media in addition to producing very high resolution images for printing.

Underwater filming in Palau is still incredible. New behaviors and environments were documented in greater detail this past year. Our cameras can output 4K Raw footage, meaning the very best colors are available.

Wildlife and conservation topics are still very close to our hearts. A large project on migratory shorebirds was completed in the Autumn. This milestone project raised local awareness for the need to protect certain coastal environments in Palau.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued support into 2018.

Together we can make Lightning Strike Productions grow further and provide more innovative and educational media for Palau and Micronesia.

Here’s to a productive and imaginative 2018!

Thank you and Enjoy!

Are you thinking of filming on location in Palau? In this World of increasing airfares, and increased demand for on location media for environmental subjects, having a reliable and professional camera operator somewhere like Palau certainly makes sense.
