VS - Spec Commercial
Client: Hangman Studios/F-Stop Academy Shoot Duration: 1 Days Post production: 2 days Format: Sony NEX FS700 project Summary:
Once again (2 years running now but who's counting - see FS100 worldwide exclusive for last years coup) Sony asked for our input in developing the FS700. We got bold and asked for a 4K camcorder with HD-SDI, ND Filters and 120fps.... They overdelivered with 240fps at 1080P.
This film was an idea on the Friday before we filmed on the Saturday with a simple theme "The forces of rock vs the forces of Brazil" We wanted to test the 240 fps although we actually shot at 200 fps to avoid the flicker from the lighting. This effect is caused because the 24o fps is derived fron the 60Hz setting and when shooting in a 50hz environment the lights flicker.
So we had an opportunity to shoot with a pre production model and we created VS
here's a film we made showing you a bit of behind the scenes
And the official launch film which we produced and also rather gratuitously appeared in.
Unfortunately the budget was limited and so we could not fly out and shoot the interviews with Frank and Peter, which sadly meant that they had to self shoot their interviews. If you are thinking about having a corporate film or a launch film for a new product I'd try to avoid this because you simply cannot guarantee a consistent look throughout the film unless you are at every interview.
