Here is a link to a short commerical I made for a firm called Jungle Sports. And for once it’s actually a “serious” video.
About the video:
The people in it are all young, talented, Norwegian athletes. They were all really motivated and quite fun to work with.
The video was filmed on a Nikon D90. It’s an okay camera, but not really good enough for commercial projects. It seems to have problems with the European 50hz electrical system, causing light waves on the screen. Also you cannot choose your own exposure. (You can cheat by locking it and then zooming in/out, but this is not ideal to work with) In addition it compresses the video too hard, creating a lot of noise in the image.
But since I wanted a kind of dirty, spotlight look on the video, the compression quality was not really an issue this time.
I only had two construction lamps to work with, I decided to turn them towards the camera and turn off all other light sources whenever I had the chance. I also added a bit more lens flare in post using the plug-in from videocopilot.net
