28.10 Crowdfunding promo video
Once again, I did not know where I was going to. Finally I found myself in a big chroma studio in eastern Helsinki. The story of this time was to shoot one promo video for upcoming crowdfunding campaign. When I arrived to studio staff was building up the props and lightning for this scene. I specially admired the people who build up the light setup for this scene but of course the props where specially made and hand crafted. But yes I’m photographer and I like different variations of light.
This time I was surprised how long it takes to shoot one scene for short promo video, all the preparations, practices, makeup… So what it would be when the real shootings starts in next spring? I guess long days and A lot of coffee The best thing when you are documenting this movie is to learn new things about making of movie documentary. Now we where in big chroma studio, but places and angles for good pic where limited. For example when you think that you have found A good place to take pic, then you found that there is sound boom above you. No pics from that place, because your shutter noise may interrupt the scene, yep avoid mics. Second thing is the direction of studio lightning. When building lightning setup for the scene, it is of course builded up correctly to movie camera direction. The best camera angle is the same place than movie camera, but 90% chance there is no room for you. So you must constantly fight against light, common light to you is the backlight.
I cannot tell nothing about the promo video content, until it has released. I will put new images after it has published, there where a LOT of good pics about making of this video
So here you are enjoy and wait until you see this video and new images with revealing pics of actor…
