I’m not kidding when I tell you we have some of the best talent in the industry on our staff team.

Ronnie Bingaman, our resident videographer and motion graphic designer, recently wrote, filmed, and directed a short film for an international contest that will blow your mind.

Ronnie had the concept for this film in his head for about two years. When he learned about RODE Microphones’ short film competition, he decided it was the perfect opportunity to bring his dream to life! Along with the story, Ronnie also had a distinct soundtrack melody in mind. Developing the score was just as important as the video itself. He worked hard to get the flow and tones just right so the music would help carry the story. 

Ronnie’s audio engineer brother, Ridge Bingaman, recorded all the sound effects and dialogue, and the main actors are his little cousin Brycen and his grandfather, Roland Decker. Lake Bender also filmed and edited a Behind the Scenes video to document the entire process from start to finish.  

“It was incredibly special for me to be able to work with my talented family in this way. We shot 99% of this in one day, so it was lots of work and everyone did a great job. Whether or not we win, I’m proud of my friends and family for working so hard and I am proud of the final product we made together. It was an incredible experience and I’m thankful it came together the way it did!”   -Ronnie Bingaman

Take 5 minutes to watch this. It’s powerful and poignant…
