I have gotten some requests for more and more behind the scenes clips. Silicon Imaging have posted some of the greenscreen shots we've done on their site, so check it out. For today I have a selection of awesome clips...
Grant with Glyde Cam
Our Director of Photography using a glyde cam. The camera being just the head and the LCD and the monitor actually was so light we had to add a little weight to the arm. We have used this for quite a few shots and I'm sure you can see why. The system is perfect, his got great movement and the head is small and versatile.
Allright here we have some FX. Start off with one of our bad guys breaking a car window, it looks super. The art department had to actually then make a hole in the middle of that already broken window which was fragile and could actually fall out any second. Buit they did it so well done. After that he have Jason Cope firing off an AK-47, looks pretty real.
Sunel on trolley
You've seen photo's of this but now take a look at it in action.
Here the latest starts. We wanted to do an underwater shot and we got it in the end. The biggest problem was that we we working with non-standard camera's and wires. Having worked with them before we approached One8Six, suppliers of camera, grip and video equipment. These guys are amazing. They modified a Hydroflex for us so we could get the cables in to the heads without obviously letting the water in. The make was perfect first time round. We tested it right after they finished making the modifications and not a single drop was let in. Also the shoot at the pool was great and the footage we got was awesome. We shot some in 30p just to get that little slo-motion feeling together with the strange ambiance of being under water and it worked great. Hope you enjoy the clips...
