“29 Glen Ave, Arcadia Vale”, Property Video for Keys Real Estate

Real Estate Video of an Unbeatable Water Panorama

29 Glen Avenue is the first property video for Key Real Estate that Entendre productions has produced.

It was a majestic location that captured a great aspect of Lake Macquarie and its incredible surrounds. The open plan living areas on the upper level capture the expanse of the position, with gun barrel water views to Belmont, whilst closer to home is an effortless 270 degree panorama stretching from Fishing Point right around to Wangi Bay.

However, despite this fantastic location, it was an overcast day with a week or more of rain predicted ahead. So… the show must go on. I used a soft-edge blue ND filter to help with the grey skies, but it would have been nice to get the water shots with that nice deep blue that one only get’s when the sun is high and the skies are clear.

Personally, unlike real estate photographers, when doing property video, I don’t want a clear sky but a nice mix of blue sky & white, fluffy clouds. This way an exterior time-lapse can really look great without clouds or a dusk shoot, time-lapse can look a little lame in property video. Feel free to disagree in the comments section below.

The kitchen has Caesar stone bench tops, 5 burner gas cook-top, twin single drawer dishwasher, and a serving window to the outdoor under cover entertaining area that could easily accommodate 20 guests. The kitchen was great fun to film, but the ignition wasn’t working on the stove so I tried using a lighter… and lost all the hair on my hand. I think I will pack matches as a part of my camera kit for next time.

The master bedroom suite would be fit for royalty, with its own balcony and south-facing water views to Wangi, as well as an enormous walk in robe and en-suite with spa bath and skylight overhead.

Perfect for a large family, the 3 bedrooms & family room on the lower level provide a 2nd separate living area including wet bar and a dedicated cinema room with built-in projector and 2.2m screen. Because I am a cinephile, the cinema room is my favorite room in my house but, by contrast, when filming a property video, cinema rooms are the bane of my existence. Little or no light. Furniture packed up against the walls. Often cables running everywhere. *sigh* I shot the cinema room on this property at an ISO of 3200, which is significantly higher than my personal cap of 1250, but I don’t think it turned out too badly.

The house also had a level kid friendly backyard, new 10.5m in-ground pool and ducted air conditioning throughout.

Working with Brad Thornton was great. He is a really nice guy which came though in his confidence on camera. I look forward to working with him again soon.
