In July 2015, Vincent Laforet held his Directing Motion workshop in Sydney.
Day two of the workshop was a practical demonstration on shooting an artist, conducting an interview, how to approach B roll shots and a general overview of Vincent shooting process. The piece was roughly cut on site on the day to show students how one might piece together the final product. After much delay due to busy work schedules, we finally had an opportunity to finish the piece, grade and sound mix it and here is the result.
A huge thanks goes to Robert Wynne (and family) from Denizen Glass Studio who opened up their space to us and were fantastic, patient and willing participants in the workshop. Big thanks also goes to Rode and Atomos who were our key sponsors for the event (special mention for Scott Emerton who is a total boss and Tony Trent from Atomos, you guys rule!).
Thanks to Digital Logic, John Barry and Freely for providing gear and support. David Geffin for producing, Mike Isler, Marcel and Ian from Digital Logic for hands on support on the day, The EAR for our live switching equipment so everyone could watch while the shoot was happening (because we couldn't fit everyone in the hot and at time dangerous workshop at once), Jack Crombie for operating, set-up, pack down, tent negotiations, wrangling, colour grade and just about everything else. Sarah Estela for on and offsite editing and of course to all of the students without whom, this day would not have been possible.
This was shot using the Arri Amira and Red Epic with Canon Cine Primes. Lighting was supplied by Digital Logic. Audio recorded by the Rode team. Edited with Adobe Premiere Pro. Graded in Blackmagic Design Davinci Resolve 12.
