Biblical amounts of rain in Hong Kong these last few weeks caused the original (scripted) MV concept to be scrapped. With literally two afternoons of semi-good weather a few days before the delivery deadline we reluctantly diverted to Plan B, a much simpler idea which we could shoot on the roofs of ours & surrounding warehouse buildings.
Shot in the industrial / art district of Chai Wan first using our trusty Canon 5D mk2 and then luckily our pre-ordered Sony NEX-FS700 arrived earlier than expected so we quickly drafted that in for the second afternoon. Zeiss ZE/ZF prime lenses throughout. The 5D footage is the weakest link in the video and had we time I would have re-shot everything with the FS700.
