Pleasant Valley Productions is a wholly owned division of the Back 40 Group, Incorporated. While we produce and market videos for our parent company Back 40 Group, Incorporated we also invite work from others requiring a fully equipped production house. We currently produce highly detailed "how-to" DVD's tailored to serve the needs of our target audience: New Ruralites, Homesteaders, Naturalists, and sustainable farmers. Our division is fully vertically integrated. From developing concepts and scripts, shooting the video, editing, and final production of the actual DVD's, all operations are performed in-house.
We operate a state-of-the-art video and audio production facility and the Division is presently editing several projects. Our equipment includes a Sony HVR-Z1U high-definition video camera, a Phillips video camera with an internal stabilization system, booms & jibs, Lowell location lighting equipment, camera mounted teleprompter, remote camera control system, Behringer audio mixing console, Sennheisser broadcast microphones, plus location video and audio recording equipment. Editing is performed using a custom built Pro-Max computer system running dual 3.4 ghz Xeon processors, 1,160 gigabytes of memory, triple monitors and Sony Vegas and Adobe Premier editing software.
All video projects are “filmed” in high-definition format and our projects and will be available in HDTV or standard NTSC broadcast editions. As consumer acceptance of high-definition grows virtually all of our videos will be state-of-the-art. Our equipment is primarily manufactured by Sony, the major force in the development of High Definition Video.
Pleasant Valley’s production and editing equipment is among the best in Missouri. The production crew and editing staff is also available for assignment work.
