And the Oscar goes to…

Video thoughts

Who hasn’t practiced their Oscar acceptance speech? We would certainly like to thank all of our clients and crew members for our success over the years.

At Independent Media Productions, the consensus among the crew for our two favorite films are “Philomena” and “Her.”

Each film combined flashback images and sounds to propel the story forward. Like in effective corporate video production, good fundamentals still work.

The most sure-fire bet to win an Oscar in any category is “Gravity” for special effects.The talking, flying dragon in “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug” is impressive. But the experience of space walking sets a new standard for special effects realism.

Our favorite scene of the entire year is Leo DiCaprio’s “Quaalude adventure in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” If you’ve seen it, you know what we mean. He had to visit a chiropractor after shooting that one- that’s commitment.
