Bilingual Videographer Services in Osaka, Japan

DFS's bilingual videographer service is for productions which seek to hire a camera crew who can do the job mainly as a one-man band (or a few assistants if necessary) with high quality camera, lighting, and audio.  A videographer has been Hotaka Matsumura since its establishment in 2012.

This service swims the current of the times and is for productions that consider to coordinate its productions with the minimum number of crew. DFS also offers a remote monitoring system with wireless transmitter/receiver during shoot for clients who choose coming to Japan anyway.   

DFS's main camera is C300 Mark II, and the second is Sony a7S Mark II. You can see our equipment list here

We simply set our rates according to the following aspects:

  1. The number of crew (a videographer and assistants)
  2. Working time 
  3. Equipment

We do not consider the selections of equipment from our arsenal dramatically affect the rates. The amount of equipment we can bring to shoot largely depends on the number of crew and shooting situation for each project. For example, it is hardly possible to manipulate three point lighting, multiple cameras, and multiple audio sources with just one crew in a busy circumstances. Such overload will decrease crew's productivity, and result in customer's dissatisfaction. Our multiple crew rates newly updated are reasonable and versatile as follows.
