I shot C cam and stills for my buddies from TVNZ the other day on ‘The Mix’. It’s basically a how to video series, of mixing cocktails. High gloss TVC drives viewers to extended content online. You know the story! ha ha! Anyways, the shoot was at a lovely mansion in Piha, which was great! See a couple of pics below! A very long day, but great catering and a crew cracking jokes all day made it well worth it! A & B Cams were Sony F3′s with a lovely set or ARRI SUPER PRIMES attached to each. Amazing build quality, as you would expect from a lens set that costs the same as a deposit on a house!!!! I began shooting 5D, shooting stills on the 7D, but ended up shooting video on the HPX250, because of the SDI out for monitoring. It was weird, the SDI out from my 5D monitor wouldn’t work to the TVNZ monitors, then some of the field monitors went down, then an SDI to analog converter went down, not a good day to be a techie! Luckily had a 5D scene setting on the HPX, so we were set! Kiaora ND filters! Hard to tell the difference between the HPX and F3′s when the light is set even!
Just wrapping up a couple of loose ends on some creatives for the crew over at Red Bull NZ, then onto some post production on a couple of vids for Yagermeister and Jack Daniels!
