Not Directed anything for literally years and so enjoyed this shoot. I’m Producer/Director on this so thinking about budget and logistics as much as tone and feel.
Doing a spoof xmas ad for BBC Radio Nottingham. The Red seems so versatile. Tom Pierrepont shot it for me.
Been getting into post as we used a 3D printed model to augment some shots. Bought. some fake snow. The 3D model greenscreen shoot was to potentially replace some shots with the snow. We had to dress a couple of sets and so the 3D was a back up if it didn’t look so good but it does.
The snow comes from Snow Business based out of Stroud, Gloucestershire. They did first Narnia film.
It gives a really good immediate visual. We were shooting out in public places and it went down well with kids.
Produced a quick BTS edit last night and that was good fun.
Red allows a 4K version so that is what we are aiming for.
