that railfan videos suffer from the Lake Wobegon effect:
everyone's product is "The Highest Quality," "The Finest," or "The
Best"? If other producers have passion for their product, then by
comparison that must mean we are "Beyond Passion." You will see it in
every step of the production; from how, when, and where we shoot; how
we edit; and how we deliver. From looking for the perfect angle under
perfect light, to taking the time in the edit room to get the video and
audio polished, to being the first to deliver on Blu-Ray BD-R High
Definition Disk, Marcam Productions is the one to watch. Consider the bell curve shifted.
History '96 to Present from Hi-8 to UltraHD:
: It all started back in college, a couple of guys chasing the last
runs of Amtrak's Pioneer across Oregon and videotaping on Hi8.
: The Hi-8 cameras gave way to Sony VX1000 3CCD prosumer
video-cameras and a dream was born to creatively capture the most
scenic and interesting rail operations on digital video.
1998 to 2004
: Marcam Productions works with Goodheart Productions on
such titles as 4449 Return to Freedom
and SP&S 700 Homecoming Excursion
work continued on productions across the Pacific Northwest and Western
Marcam Productions ditches DVCAM and switches to High
Definition cameras. Field work expands to locations like China.
: Marcam Productions Premieres its first independent release
