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.

Sutro @ Art Basel

We are very happy and proud to announce we will have a video piece on display at Art Basel (Miami) later this year, the largest art show in the world, as part of an installation piece by Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti.

Our video will be showcasing an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at the surrealist photographic world of Michael Garlington during a recent photoshoot with Susan Sarandon.

To saw we are excited about these news, would be a huge understatement.

Check out the video piece below, and let us know what you think!

Sarandon

Nothing inspires us more than surrounding ourselves with extremely smart creative people - people who have a zest for life, for fairness and kindness, that it makes all your daily struggles as an artist become all that much worth it. Yesterday, was one of those magical days. To the endless inspiration, we are thankful. More on this shoot later in the year...

A very special thank you to Michael Garlington, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Raiser, David Reposar, and Lonnie Rivers. And everyone who made yesterday possible.

Sony Alpha

Some of our photography and video work was just featured on the front page of the official Sony Alpha website, the official Sony destination for everything related to their whole digital camera line.

Since we mostly shoot with Sony gear these days, the article focuses on how it was to use the FS7 and the A7Rii during the intense desert conditions of Black Rock City, the creative mecca also known as Burning Man.

Rent our Gear

What better way to start a New Year than organizing our side of things to be able to share the love? So here we are, and we're happy to announce that we are now putting (a lot) of our gear available for rent.

We promise to give you great prices, but since we're just another small business in the Bay Area, we also require you to have proof of insurance to make sure any damage to our gear will be covered by you.

We don't ship our products. Our main office is located in Oakland, CA, and you can pick it up and deliver it here. But. We're awesome. We're hard creative workers like yourself, and we promise you'll love all our items as much as we do.

And what better way to help you get creative in 2016?

So go ahead. Check out what we currently have (new items added often), fill out the form with more details about your needs, and we'll live happily ever after!

We just completed a two day intensive video shoot at the St. Regis in San Francisco, for House of Borel. With an amazing creative team to complete the look needed for these shots, and three amazing women who are superstars in their respective fields, these two past days have been some of the most inspiring hours we have spent on set.

We have tons of post-production ahead of us in the next couple of weeks, and we couldn't be more excited to dive head first into this project.

Science. And Tech.

One of the many reasons we love what we do here at Sutro is the variety of projects, challenges, and ideas we creatively immerse ourselves in as we work with different clients around the world. This time around, we teamed up with MW Tech, a high-tech company in Porto, Portugal, who is quickly growing to becoming one of the most respected optic sources technology providers in the world.

With a current re-branding effort for the company, an upcoming website and multiple conference exhibits and talks, it was time to invest in a small video to introduce the products and services the company offers worldwide.

This last September we were in Portugal, and spent a whole day filming their high-tech labs and offices at Tecmaia, a pretty great and exciting tech campus venture in Portugal.

Our challenge this time was filming stages of product design and evolution of a very high-tech nature. Small details, tight spaces, machinery, and much more. We even had to use IR goggles for one of the shots, so you can see what is actually happening in front of you.

It was an amazing learning experience, and an incredible creative challenge, but thanks to the patience of our clients, and of course the tools we used to keep the workflow as effortless and productive as possible, we are now happy to share the final result with you all. Two videos were produced, one with simple animated text slides, and another one without.

Below, you can watch one of the versions. Everything was filmed mainly on the FS7, with cine gamma modes, and an amazing lens collection. ARRI LED lights were used to make sure we set up the shots properly, and of course, everything was edited in our Final Cut suite in Oakland. Final grading through DaVinci Resolve made sure we kept our cinematic quality we are known for already.

Thanks for the great adventure, and wishing MW Tech the best of success in the tech industry worldwide.
