This video was shot entirely on the Sony EX1 at 720p, 30/45/60 fps. We also used our tracking system, steady tracker, and crane. The best part of this production is that we filmed it in about two hours. Our actress and extras were fantastic and I think we made a great video to help the actress gain much needed votes for the office for which she was running.
I was hoping to use the EX1's over-cranking ability to its max, however the song was too fast at 200% speed. We ended up putting the song at 150%, which still allowed us to film at 45 fps, get the smooth, slow-motions effect, and have it look like the main actress was singing to the beat.
The key to the success of this video was, again, in the planning stages. We had most of the shots laid out in advance. However, one can only plan so much and one ultimately needs to go with the flow while on location. The plan just helps this process not be so stressful!
