About Opaliris Studios

Charlie and Shauna Rankin Yanasa Ama Ranch

Opaliris Studios, a Yanasa Ama Ventures company, is a video and photography company created by Charlie and Shauna Rankin.  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, Yanasa TV, following their journey building a family ranch in Goldston, North Carolina.  The channel continues to grow with over 63,700 subscribers.

Specialty Video Capture Capabilities
Some videos require special equipment, here’s some insight to our current capabilities.

Video Screen Shot showing low light shooting at 240 frames per second.

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. 

Action Shots:

Action Shot Captured at 60 FPS 1080P HD

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.

Video Screen Shot 4K 30 FPS Early Morning Light.

Aerial Videography:

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.

Video Screen Shot 20X Zoom 30FPS 4K

Aerial Videography requires a pilot and a visual spotter.  Aerial Videography is not allowed above sporting events.

Wildlife Videography:

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
Consulting Services

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 offers primarily videography and photography services, however, we acknowledge the need for proper marketing platforms to create a viral reach for certain produced videos.  As a separate service, we offer Social Media and Marketing Consulting Services to help our clients reach their greatest potential.

Our Work

Behind the Scenes With Opaliris

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 Ventures YouTube Channel, branded Yanasa TV, as Vlog Posts. 

Equestrian Sport Videos

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. 

Real Estate Marketing Videos

Real Estate is a competitive market.  Creating a marketing package that stands out is essential to attract worthy buyers to your home.  Our Real Estate Marketing Videos tell the story of what makes your home unique to buyers. 


Raising money can be a difficult challenge.  Using Video can help you appeal to your audience in a clear and concise manner that will increase your fundraising potential. 

Business Marketing Videos

We live in a visually connected society.  For that reason business video marketing has become an essential tool for every business owner.  Our marketing videos tell your story of success. 


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

Meet My Neighbor YouTube Series

Opaliris and Yanasa Ama Ventures have come together to create this unique series to help promote small rural businesses and organizations.  

Short Films and Trailers

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. 

Creative Film

Just for fun, some of our favorite short videos made simply for fun.

Product Reviews and Sponsorship Videos

We’ll be honest, not every product is worth reviewing.  But if we find something we like, we’ll definitely give it some consideration.  Product Reviews are generally performed in a Vlog style format.  



Event photography services as well as portraits.
