Well, it has only been a week since we last spoke about, “Everybody Pees,” here on the Studio B blog. Already the video has climbed to 381,000 views and still going strong!

Today, the Supreme Court ruled that the constitution guarantees the right to same-sex marriage.

Cliff and the Drones — sounds like a killer rock band. Well, we think Cliff is a rocker. Studio B Films recently had the pleasure of working with cinematographer, Cliff Traiman, who knows a little something about flying cameras. With the current drone craze, we thought we’d ask Cliff about the allure of working with copter cameras. How did you get into drone camera work? I was frustrated by having to work with other operators. I really wanted to be able to put the lens where I wanted to and control the timing of the shot. Working beside the guy flying…READ MORE
