Sonic Runway

Last year we were involved with one incredible art installation project for Burning Man, the Sonic Runway.

Recently, its official website was just launched and the Sonic Runway traveled to China where it will be on display as a three-month public installation. We edited this video from footage taken by Burning Man participants, for the official website of Sonic Runway!

Check it out! We couldn't be more excited about seeing the Sonic Runway grow so much.

So proud to share with you all this micro-documentary we edited and color graded for our friends at Mr. Smith production company, and JFK University.

It was a tremendous amount of work, but we couldn't be more excited for another touching and successful creative collaboration with these guys. Thank you to David Valentin and Daniel Corona for always believing in Sutro.

JAM

We recently started helping JAM (http://jam.com) create amazing video content for their inspiring community of curious kids, learning creativity through hands-on projects. It's been an incredible month already working with these guys, and we couldn't be more excited to share this trailer we edited for them.

It was simply scavenging their previously shot footage, a mix of mentor/class shots with children's uploaded photos, to create something that really showcases how excited kids are to be learning through practice.

Our new reel is up and we couldn't be more excited. Check out our latest showcase of some of our favorite work over the past four years!

We're about to wrap up this week a new story vignette with Mr. Smith. The amazing team of David Valentin and Daniel Corona did all the shoots, but we finished the editing and color grading for the whole piece at Sutro.

Love working with those guys, and coming from Mr. Smith we always know we're getting cinematic looking shots to play with, which is incredibly satisfying in post-production.

The original scoring for the video has been approved, and we'll be wrapping up the whole project this week, and we can't wait to share some more with you.

Until then, hope you enjoy these frame grabs from the video for a sneak peek...

Winning Photo

As we mentioned before, one of our recent photographs won a prize by BorrowLenses, and was put on display in their HQ here in the Bay Area, alongside a few other carefully chosen photographs from all over the US.

Take a look at the setup below. We couldn't be prouder of this, or more excited about this opportunity.

Thank you Borrowlenses.com!

Commercials

We partner a lot with the talented team at Mr. Smith, a production agency next door to us and we collaborate on a lot of creative projects.

Recently, we had the chance to edit and color grade two short commercials for them, and their client JFK University.

We're very proud of the work, and it stands as a testament of what we are able to do here at Sutro Studios – sometimes full production projects from beginning to end, or sometimes just post-production helping other companies and creatives out.

One our favorite things to have our office as part of a co-working community of artists and doers in Oakland, CA, is the incredible opportunities for collaboration outside of our own bubble.

Recently, we were lucky to partner with the talented team of Mr. Smith, to work together on creating a small fundraiser video for a non-profit started by a very inspiring young woman, who is doing a toy drive to help other children this holiday season.

We Are The Sun

We started filming and documenting big art efforts last year at Burning Man, and this year we had the pleasure of being part of the incredible build crew for Catacomb of Veils, one of the largest art structures ever built on the Playa.

It was a tremendous experience, that will stay with us forever, and created a new family network of insanely talented artists and friends. We are now happy to share this video we recently completed that shows the crazy amount of effort it takes to bring a project like this to reality.

Hope you enjoy! We are always looking for other amazing projects to help out with at Burning Man, so feel free to reach out to us at any point if you have something brewing in the pipeline.
