Our Workflow

All the segments with Bret talking are shot in 4K 4:2:2 at 24p in VLOG. A lot of the action shots that are not super-slow-motion are shot at 4k 60p 4:2:0 since we still can use the audio but have the flexibility to playback smoothly in slow motion if necessary. The super-slow-motion shots are 1080p somewhere between 120 – 180fps. All editing, grading and audio mixing is done using Premiere Pro.

Most episodes take a few hours to shoot and one or two days for post production. We upload 1080p 24P 30mbps MP4’s to YouTube.
