about the birdhouse

THE BIRDHOUSE was created by Brian Tweedt, SOC, to provide simple and affordable solutions for television and media production.  We provide the latest in HD cameras, monitors, audio, jibs, teleprompters, quadcopters, dollies, and the crew to operate it all!

 

Incorporated in 2009, THE BIRDHOUSE has grown rapidly with rental clients ranging from HGTV, TLC, TruTV, Current TV, Fox Sports 1, Fox, Lifetime, AOL, OWN, to Warner Bros. Television.

 

But THE BIRDHOUSE is more than just rentals.  We also can help clients achieve their media production goals, from concept to completion.  In fact, the Birdhouse was awarded a Telly Award in 2015 for it's original production, "Building History" in the History/Biography category.

 

We are based in north Orange County, California, serving all of Southern California and beyond.  Although the majority of our clients are located in the greater Los Angeles area, we also have a small office in northern Virginia serving New York and the metro D.C. area.

 

Brian Tweedt is a member of the prestigious Society of Camera Operators (SOC), a multiple Telly Award winner, and has over 17 years of experience in the motion picture industry.

He is well known as a top single and multi-camera reality / documentary television director of photography, camera, MoVI, aerial, and jib operator.
