Creating Product Cinematography
Media Grabbers was tasked with creating high end product cinematography for our dear friend Derek Smith who was producing this shoot for his client Sich Caskets. And I have to say, we made this product look dead sexy! Not funny? Maybe, but when I pass, if I am laid to rest in one of these magnificent caskets, I will have gone out in style.
It’s All About The Details
The reality is a shoot like this means fretting over the details, caring about every spec of dust, smudge and finger print. It means spending hours getting the lighting…just right. In this case it also meant trouble shooting our precision turn table & it’s ancient operating system. But what kind of tech people would we be if we can trouble shoot some older but still relevant gear. Even us Mac people can still wrestle with an old PC.
Once all the elements were in place it came down to practicing the jib & with the casket on the turn table. Getting the same rack focus 16 times till the rotation & the rack match up just…perfect, it’s what we do. The devil is in the details and we are proud to have conquered.
