Lovingly crafting videos in Southeast Portland

... a Portland videographer exploring new and noteworthy ideas in the world of video production in the Pacific Northwest and around the world.

My name is Abigail Spyker and I have worked with video for ten years, producing a variety of videos ranging from lifestyle documentaries to corporate promotional videos. I love working as a Portland videographer and photographer.

Topics include: filming techniques, video and motion graphics examples, design inspiration, opportunities for videographers, broadcast journalism, visual storytelling, data visualization, education, emerging technologies, and other compelling stories

 

Produced this video for an indiegogo campaign, NoAppFee - Re-inventing Renting to Help House Homeless Families.

This compelling campaign was featured in the Huffington Post: Finally, a Market-Driven Solution to Housing Homeless Families.

Help spread the word about this innovative idea!

I filmed this video with my iphone + DSLR, and and edited it with FCPX. This is the first time my business partner and I have met another Google Glass Explorer… what a blast!

Check out our latest TV commercial for broadcast. We used DSLR cameras, a zoom recorder, LED lights and edited in Adobe After Effects.  This television commercial was filmed and edited by our team at Northwest Media Collective and produced by our friends at College Performance Partners and Pioneer Pacific College. Thanks to Joe Micheals for some great voiceover; we’ve worked together for going on ten years.

Out of the 19 google glass videos I’ve edited and posted to youtube, this one is my favorite.

We’re back from google.  It feels almost like a dream, except we have some cyborg-like technology to show for it! 

New Idea: Small business POV videos - where the artist or craftsperson wears glass and demonstrates their unique talent. 

The last pic is one we took to submit to IT Crowd’s call for photos.

Stay tuned for more updates and videos from sunmaistudios and Abigail Spyker.

As the lead videographer and documentarian on the Sylvan EcoHouse project, my role is anything but static. The architect, Robert Mechielsen of Studio RMA, specializes in Carbon-Neutral Design & Construction Technology.  In this video he takes us through one of the early renderings of the house (built in Google Sketchup). When we didn’t see an clear way to export videos from SketchUp, I used Screenflow to capture my screen and record the Architect taking us on this little tour.
