AAA "HOUSE MANAGER" (2018)
Shoot a one-shot spot for a :15 using practical effects and camera perspective. We had to create a before and after look to show the impact the product service could offer to its customers. We also had to shoot two separate concepts for print only, casting additional talent and working with a dedicated stills photography crew.
We utilized motion control for the camera and the main rooftop rig. This allowed us to program the motion ahead of time and we could repeat the same camera move over many takes. Art department constructed the rooftop and transported it to set. Half the day was just build and program, and we had to work around a stills shoot happening simultaneously. Joe had created an animatic timed to storyboard, so we had the cues for the ladder and grill down. On the day we played back a blip track so our crew could hit the right timing every take. For one shot most of the crew was out in 10 hours.
