Cheese and motion control rigs, our 2 favourite things!
We were approached by Director / Photographer Gary Salter to support him on set for all things VFX and too then post produce his latest TVC and stills campaign. We’ve had a good working relationship with Gary over the years and that benefits the trust and collaboration of our skills sets.
He requested “I’d like the hero narrator to move in real time whilst the other talent is 100% static as if frozen in time”. Easy peasy we said. “Oh and I want the camera to do a 90 degree move” Ahhh… no worries Gary, we love a challenge.
The shoot was no easy feat as we suggested shooting multi passes with actors filmed at different frame rates. The best way to achieve this was with our new favourite toy, the Milo motion control rig. And boy, it’s noisy beast!
It was an extensive post-production exercise for us as it maximised all our skill sets in, VFX supervision, Editing, Motion Design, Colour Grading, Retouching and Sound Design/Mixing. All of which were finished and delivered for broadcast, OOH and all digital platforms.
