A commercial short for the Zooppa Crackpot Cube contest. Shot over the course of a day in the Uptown Chicago area during the “refreshing” season of single digit weather. This was my second narrative shoot with the RED and I’m still trying to figure out the best post method to produce the best quality. Due to the mini crew I used alot of natural light and bounce reflectors to light the scenes in addition to a few FnV 1×1 light panels.
In post we had many ideas for the final video but since the program is still in its beginning stages alot of what we wanted to show with graphics and interactions had to be changed due to not being working or available at the moment. Instead I used screen captures of similar ideas to convey the end result.
