I was the DP for this commercial for Famous Footwear alongside director Loni Peristere and the incredible folks at Zoic Studios in LA. This is the 60 second cut. The spot was shot over two nights in Vancouver, Canada with a Phantom HD Gold, at 600 frames per second, with Cooke S4 primes at f 2.0 with 250,000 Watts of light. Motion control was used to do multiple shots with different focus points. The shutter angle was 360º (359º to be exact) at 2048X1080 and the iso was set to 640 if I remember correctly. This shoot was a blast and I owe the camera team and G&E a tremendous thanks - especially to the incredible focus puller Cam Hayduk and my buddy and gaffer Mark Lindsay. Check out my blog for behind the scenes footage of this project.
This is a shot of the The "MōVI" - a digital 3-axis gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal. The completely silent device weighs under 3.5 pounds bare and can be operated solo, or with the help of a second "gimbal" operator with a joystick to pull off some incredible moves.
