Yesterday, I was lucky to be able to sit in on a professional shoot for a major market leader. So this is how the pros do it!
This is my take of the day. Lighting, green screens, amazing models. My intention was to shoot the models and set with a slight blur (using the Lensbaby Composer). No editing of photographs, just popped the images into a film template that I found on the internet.
Thanks to the guys at Montage Productions I had such a great day. You all made me feel so welcome and it was such an insightful day.
Amazing that 4 hours of preparation plus 5 hours of shooting results in 1 hour of video capture which in turn ends in 9 seconds of commercial. Wow…makes me look at commercials in a different light now.
Equipment: Canon 40D
Photoshop CS3 used to put images together.
