"Actionmovie" is tv production company in Italy quite famous for photo and video services devoted mainly to sports. They are also the producer and partner of a television program directed by Valeria Mondello and called "Adrenalinik", broadcast on satellite and on hot bird Sky Sports channels, that is having a good success.

20 August 2013
Marco Orbassano co-owner of Actionmovie intervenes: "We have been producing an episode that airs every month several times. For the first time it is broadcast in the prime time and then it is repeated again some 15/20 times each month at different times, so it gives a huge boost to many audiences."
Margaret Grueninger, the other partner of Actionmovie says: "There are other projects in the pipeline, for example Sky Sports asked us to produce for them some video materials useful for signature tunes and stings and indents for some important sports-based engines broadcasts ...."
Adrenalinik on the other hand is the typical sport program format with young people target: the formula is simple: no presenter connecting sports reports and the interviewee has the microphone directly in his hand.
A voiceover comments on the various disciplines and the program tries to report all sports that are not normally very followed on television. Adrenalinik also deals with "a bit of everything", but always with a different perspective from the TV channel that deals with the major sports.
Marco points out: "Sometimes in Adrenalinik we can add video content derived from large video productions like "Redbull's" but for the most part all videos are our production. All shots are taken mainly using digital SLR Canon 1D and 5D Mark II cameras. We work at 25 P and then we also use a Sony Nex capable of shooting images in HD at 50p. "

The production
To achieve the 26-minute program, several electronic shooting systems are used on different locations.
Marco agrees: "We widely use also some Contour and GoPro 3 Black Edition cameras with their 120 fps in slow motion which are critical for us.
The Contour is very practical for us from the point of view of the controls and functionality, since even with heavy gloves, skiing or motocross gloves, with a single slider we can start recording on the go."
Images are so beautiful and a spectacular post-production adds a lot to the finished product and all the editing is done on a Mac with Final Cut X plus integration with other softwares such as Color and Motion. Typically, with workstations based on four screens.
Each episode over the time slot mentioned of 26 minutes without presenter comprises four stories and graphics cuts which connect everything, created with Motion and Final Cut.
To create the various video services in addition to SLR cameras and to the larger cameras such as the X1 from Sony or the Sony F3, Actionmovie always uses different grip equipments to support all shooting -like motorized carts which carry out the time lapse in motion- and also on a mix of products as the Polish SlideKamera, portable shooting system with small rails.
Marco tells us about the production: "We have built directly ourselves some other equipments in wood and we also built a sort of little funicular that allows you to mount a small Gopro camera and shoot up to 120 m slide pan pulling two ropes among the trees, it is very useful especially in the woods with mountain biking. It takes 20 minutes to install and we tend wires along the chosen route and then the camera slides down while shooting. We have also built another small Crane, a special arm that shots from an unnatural viewpoint but with good fluidity of the movement. And then we use a great deal of steadicam, like the Glidecam, like the steady artisan model named Sanda produced by workshops in Moncalieri, Torino. It is a petite steadicam for use on minimum weights cameras such as a reflex, which is very functional and has allowed us to chase athletes up to 126 km/h on skis and with spectacular images. "
