iAproductions is fully equipped to provide a DJI Ronin 3-axis gimbal, the Axis 1 follow focus from Hocus Products,  the Tilta Armor Man 2 gimbal support vest, a SmallHD 702 Bright monitor and a DJI Lightbridge wireless video transmitter.

Our DJI Ronin 3-axis brushless gimbal has been enhanced with extension arms to allow for greater flexibility in camera mounting.  We can outfit the Ronin gimbal with one of our three cameras, the Sony FS-7, the Sony EXR1 or the Canon 5D, or we can rent the camera of your choice or you can bring your own.  Some physical restrictions apply to the use of long lenses or heavy bodies cameras.  Please contact us for a consultation.

The DJI Ronin 3-axis brushless gimbal provides a flexible platform that can serve a variety of shooting needs.  It provides image stabilization and smooth movement with a single operator, effectively replacing the need for a complicated dolly or slider set up.  Focus can be controlled by that operator as he monitors his shot on the SmallHD 702 Bright video monitor by way of the Hocus Products Axis 1 Thumb Roller.  The Tilta Armor Man 2 keeps the operator from tiring an keeps the camera and the rig safe from accidental drops. An operator secured to the bed of a truck, UTV or other moving vehicle can serve as a replacement for a car mount.  The unit can also be independently suspended from a crane, pole or tree and operated remotely from the ground.

For better control in complex shots, a second team member can pull focus using the Hocus Products Axis 1 remote control while watching a remote monitor via DJI Lightbridge or other wireless transmitter. A third operator can also be added for complete independent control of the camera's pan, tilt and zoom. 

The DJI Ronin offers a more flexible and cost effective solution versus traditional Steadicam rigs and operators.

Cash Back

Get Up to 20% Cash Back on Your Next Production

Put Money in Your Pocket and Bring Value to Your Clients with iAproductions

The West Virginia Film Investment Act provides a substantial tax credit for productions meeting certain criteria that are shot on WV soil. To obtain the tax credit applicants must make a minimum “qualified expenditure” of $25,000 in the state for a single production. This is a great way to get cash back on your next production, but the process leading to the credit and the final goal of monetizing the credit can be daunting and expensive, even for experienced applicants.

iAproductions Can Help

Yes, tax credits are a great way to add value to your production or get cash back, but the process is complicated and mis-steps can cost you credits and cash.

First there’s the initial application and application-approval process. Miss something here and it may come back to bite you somewhere down the road. Next comes pre-production expense planning to ensure that production expenditures will indeed be “qualified.” Then comes the production itself in which every expense must be accounted for, classified, qualified and payment rendered according to statute. Cross a state line to fuel a van and you just lost a credit. Employ above-the-line personnel without explicit contract language and you won’t get tax credit for their salary. Hire a crew person or rent equipment from out-of-state without using an in-state production services company and you just lost tax credits.

Then there’s the payroll, post-production, and the dreaded audit process. Unless you’ve prepared for the audit and have a in-state CPA intimately familiar with the tax credit legislation you could again lose credits or be asked to revisit the audit process again. Finally, you have to turn the credit into cash, if there’s any left after the process.

No wonder few productions other than major feature films choose to run this gauntlet.

Now you don’t need to be a major studio to benefit from this terrific tax credit program. iAProductions is West Virginia’s most experienced production and production services company. We’ve worked with advertising agencies large and small, network clients, and major Hollywood studios.

We’ve worked out all the kinks and found that after accounting, audit and sale costs we can help you can recoup 20% of your production budget in cash.

We can help you get cash back under two scenarios:

  1. Work with us as you would any other production company. Bring us your vision and our producer and director will plan and produce your shoot while we handle the tax credit application process and ensure that every possible expense incurred during production and post is tax-credit eligible and accounted for. We have veteran DP’s, gaffers, sound recordists and all the professional crafts people and equipment you need to create a great show. Then stay awhile and edit with us in our very cool HD suite or go home and view your edit progress from our FTP site. And we can distribute your spot via DGS when its finished. In just a few months we’ll complete the tax credit process and assist you with the sale of your credit. We have a perfect track record in selling every credit we’ve been awarded. When its all over you’ll have up to 20% of your production budget in cash.
  2. Work with us as you would any other production company and choose your own director, DP, art director or other personnel. Then sit back and let our producers plan and produce your shoot while we handle the tax credit process for you. We’ll fill the remaining craft positions with West Virginia residents and procure all production equipment and services to maximize your tax credit. Edit with us and keep more of your credit or take your footage home with you. We’ll complete the accounting and audit steps for you and assist with the sale of your credit and you’ll receive up to 20% cash back.

Contact Us to get started.

Whether you are planning a production and want to take advantage of West Virginia tax credits, or you are a business owner interested in purchasing tax credits, please fill out the form and someone will contact you.

Grip Truck

As of Oct 11, 2016 @ 3:30 pm

The iA Productions 18 foot, 3 ton Grip Truck with power lift gate is unique to the region. We’ve designed this truck from the ground up for small to mid-sized productions. The truck is small enough to navigate our steep grades and country roads, but carries a remarkable arsenal of grip, tungsten lighting and HMI lighting equipment — including our Arri M18, the most powerful light you can plug into a standard outlet. Our latest addition is the ARRI M8 with equivalent output to a 1.2K Fresnel.  Other goodies include a doorway dolly and car rig. You can rent the truck with all instruments aboard for about what you’d pay for a comparable truck with grip package only.  See pictures of our truck and a list of equipment aboard below.
