TOYOTA Alphard 2024 ‘Quiet Luxury’
One of my proudest works… mainly attributed to its execution. Through thick & thin, Shootworksasia, Dentsu LHS & the Clients made this a reality. From the get-go, I wanted to have the Robotic Arm to execute the dynamic shots that only a robotic arm can do. Differentiating us from the competition. Working with DP Nicholas Chin & his Colossus, nicknamed ‘The Arc’, we tested 3 shots as proof of concept & presented that to the Clients & they were sold. Needing an additional pre-light & pre-viz day, as those who have worked w Robots would know, it can be EXTREMELY time consuming to map out its extremely precise movements, especially if we have the camera on the Probe lenses move about 1 inch from the pilot seat’s arm rest…And going through the steering wheel (using the Peri Probe lens)! But this enabled us to create such beautiful motions, in & out of the car with swooping shots. All in, about 8 Arc shots, & the rest achieved via the GFM Cranes on a Ronin Gimbal & for the end driving shot – with Nic with his Ronin on the Segway. Shot with the Red V Raptor and Red Komodo at 8k resolution. Edited by Ng, & graded by Nash, with GFX & full Online by Lance, Post Fellas.
