Frame Discreet- On Location "Latch- MTV"

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

Frame Discreet team, Justin Lovell and Guy Godfree Co-DP’d a commercial spot for MTV and Panic and the Disco. Fun shoot, had a Reindeer, Emu, Peacock and over 40 screaming teenagers. Put to use our newly acquired EZFX JIB ARM. Used the extra undersling attachment and 6 foot extension. Shot at 720p on the HVX200 allowing us to do some 48fps shooting.
Shot most of it with longer lenses to compress the background and help hide that we didn’t have a full crowd. More importantly, we made use of shutter speeds between 1/500 and 1/1000 to give a more frenetic and energetic feel. Had ordered 2 1200W HMI lights, but somehow the order was messed up and ended up with 2 575W HMIs. Guy took care of most of the lighting organizing the day to always have the sun backlighting our subjects. He also doubled as a great AD 🙂 Justin dealt with camera operating and movements, utilizing a modified Arri shoulder bracket and a magic arm clamped to a T-Bar for low angle tracking shots. Working as a co-DP team really provided us with the freedom and time to focus on getting some rockin’ images.
