Welcome to Opaliris Studios at Yanasa Ama Ranch, a full service Videography and Social Media Producer in North Carolina.
Opaliris Studios is a media company created by Charlie and Shauna Rankin of Yanasa Ama Ranch. After a combined 32 years of Corporate Marketing Experience, Charlie and Shauna began their professional videography experience filming real estate videos for agricultural properties that required more advanced visual content to share with potential buyers and filming adventure videos of extreme sports like windsurfing, kayaking, and 4 wheeling.
In 2015 the couple began a YouTube channel following their journey building a family ranch in Goldston, North Carolina. The channel continues to grow with over 8,000 subscribers and 150,000 monthly views.
Following Hurricane Florence the couple filmed and created content to help raise money for flood victims in their county. Their outreach proved to be a huge success raising over $18,000.00.
Charlie and Shauna decided to use their growth in social media to promote small businesses via their channel Yanasa Ama Ranch on a playlist series called “Meet My Neighbor.” The filming of the new series inadvertently has lead the couple to creating marketing videos by request for larger businesses.
Opaliris Studios offers an array of Videography and Social Media services. When it comes to videography there’s very little we haven’t done.

Specialty Video Capture Capabilities
Some videos require special equipment, here’s some insight to our current capabilities.
Low Light Shooting:
In low light action conditions we use between 120 to 240 frames per second at 1080P HD. For less active low light conditions we shoot in 4K at 30 frames per second (fps) with a 1” sensor to capture as much light and detail as possible.
For action shots, we can shoot anywhere from 120 to 1000 fps. 240 fps and up are considered “burst shots,” a four second capture played back in ultra slow motion. 120 fps at 1080P HD can be filmed continuously and is suitable for most action films.
We also have action cams which can film anywhere from 30 Frames Per Second HD to 60 Frames per second 1080P. These cams can be mounted on a person or object.
We use a DJI Phantom 3 Professional camera which can travel up to two miles from it’s controller if unobstructed. The camera shoots in 4K at 30 frames per second which is necessary for high altitude landscape shots, but is also capable of shooting at 60 frames per second in 1080P for fly by action shots.
Our control station able of following a target and flying pre programmed flight paths for smoother action.
Aerial Videography requires a pilot and a visual spotter. Aerial Videography is not allowed above sporting events.
Our standard cameras have zooming capabilities up to 20X to catch animals at a distance. For more challenging animals we also utilize a 1080P HD TrailCam with Night Vision.
Social Media & Marketing
With over 32 years of combined corporate marketing experience, Charlie and Shauna Rankin have become immersed in the knowledge and understanding of social media algorithms. Opaliris is primarily a videography service, however we acknowledge the need for proper marketing platforms to create a viral reach for produced videos. As a separate service, we offer Social Media and Marketing Consulting Services to help our clients reach their greatest potential.
We have a lot of fun making videos and have decided to share some behind the scenes footage. These videos air on the Yanasa Ama Ranch YouTube Channel as Vlog Posts.
Filming Equestrian Sports is one of our favorite things to do. Between dim lighting in arenas and the magnificent action of these animals these videos aren’t easy to produce but are worth the effort.

Documentaries are a great way to create an emotional following or to tell a longer story.

Short Films are less expensive to produce but can be equally as powerful as a longer video. These shorter video lengths are ideal for advertising.
