Video Production - Directing, Filming & Editing
Copper Town is 20yrs experienced in shooting and editing commercials, promos, TV shows, weddings, sports, events, live performances, interviews, and music videos. The head of our video production dept, Rachael McLennan (Smith), has worked with some pretty big names including Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Dreyfuss, Carrie Fisher, Samuel L. Jackson, LeVar Burton, John McCain, Darius Rucker, Paul Shortino, Carmine Appice, Ralph Rieckermann, Danny Koker, Vinnie Paul Abbott, Carrot Top, Murray Sawchuck - Just to name a few!
Unfortunately not all videos and work experience can be displayed due to confidentiality agreements.
We do have a few examples to show. Please contact us for custom quote packages. Every video production is different therefore we do not have set prices. A rough quote for a 30sec commercial will cost you $300 and up.
You need to ask yourself the following questions: How many locations will there be for filming? Do I need any special effects done with editing? How many products do I want to show? Will the filming be in a lighted studio setting or outdoors?
All of these will affect your pricing.
Massive Waves at Mavericks - 40ft high Surfing December 8th, 2020
I drove over to Half Moon Bay from Campbell, California. Just a 45min drive away. What a magnificent sight Mavericks was! A truly epic day at Pillar Point, watching the best big wave surfers from around the world ride these waves. Unfortunately, I only have a lightweight camera. It has a superb zoom, but I needed a lens to reach the moon lol. We started on the beach, and I really couldn't see anything from there. We then went around the corner and had the best angle, but I was so far away. I didn't get the best footage the way the sun was shining, but I did get an artistic flare. Add a bit of music - Inspiration by David Fesliyan at Fesliyan Studios - - and I think I put together something special enough to share. The sheer force and power of these waves were fantastic to watch for hours on end. I feel so lucky to have been able to be part of such a special day! Hopefully, I can get on a boat at some point and get some incredible shots and footage - Rachael McLennan (Ravenskyes)

Rachael was asked to produce a music video for the band Spelled Moon. Rachael directed, filmed, and edited the video for their song "A War of Shadows". Most of the footage was shot in LA and Las Vegas. Rachael staged her living room with two female friends in one scene and she was so dedicated to the success of the video that she put herself in it when they didn't have anyone to play the violin. She admits her violin skills could probably wake the dead! The scenes were shot in a total of 22 different locations. Rachael recruited help in Florida to shoot the drummer and gave direction on exactly what shots were needed. It was a lot of hard work but a fantastic experience.

Gray Activa - Seashell Wetsuits promo
In April 2020 Gray Activa wanted to launch a campaign for a new product, seashell wetsuits. They had a designer working for them in India but the designer dropped out without completing the promo video or website. The video was created with an online video editor so it wasn't high quality. Gray Activa wanted to keep most of the 30-second promo but needed some changes and additions. They wanted to extend the length of the video. What made this project particularly difficult was they had no material to provide. Rachael was very creative in telling a story and filling in gaps.
Filmed in Las Vegas at Chef Steven Brucker's Residence. Grilling and Chillin was a cooking demonstration where Chef Steven shows musicians how to cook and entertain in their own homes.
Commerical for the Reefs Hotel and Spa with Rachel Sawden.

Tinnitus at Vampd
Jeff Tortora is the lead vocalist for Tinnitus. Jeff asked Rachael to film a live event. She filmed with one camera from the sound booth as that was where she was allowed to film from. Rachael edited the footage and added additional clips to make this teaser promo using a few songs.
Jeff is a very talented drummer and has been playing with Blue Man Group in Vegas for years. Tinnitus is a way for him to create and express himself on stage. The guitarist in this clip is the very talented Christian Brady of Hellyeah!
BeachFest 2009 - Horseshoe Bay Beach Bermuda - Joy Barnum performing Halo. There was a power outage so they could only have one light on with a blue gel and the sound feed wasn't perfect. The show must go on!
Rachael found the band Enova through The Amazing Race. She was running out the door when she saw Elliot Weber and his twin brother Andrew's contestant intro. They showed Elliot's band Enova. Rachael looked up the band and wrote to them.
Rachael got Enova a gig in Las Vegas at Vamp'd. She even opened up her living room for a band slumber party! When she went to visit a few friends in Arizona, she stayed at the band's house for a couple of days. She recorded them interview style in the backyard. True story!
