Prosaro "Legend of a king" (2017)
The agency asked us to combine a number of elements in one fluid approach. The hardest part was to combine different geographical locations and blend it to make it seamless as one, while keeping the costs manageable.
The agency worked with two units for two different locations. The interior scenes were shot in Los Angeles where we had access to numerous production resources and control. This was essential to execute the dynamic transition shot that transports the characters to a magnificent wheat field. There are no magnificent wheat fields in Southern California, so these shots were all captured with a small crew out in North Dakota, where acres of harvest-ready wheat was available for us to film in. We had to hand craft the “hero crown” for the agency based off a digital mockup. The greatest challenge for this was to create a physical prop that was similar in visual to their original design. Some things in the physical world don’t always translate to the digital, so we spent a lot of time putting this essential brand element together.
