Director of Photography (Magic Hour/Long Take/Movi Pro/RED Dragon 6K) – Joriki

Commercial/Ad Details
2/17 – 2/17

Planning a 4 minute long take shot for a commercial. I had to design the lighting, and prepare camera movement. I scouted location with my Gaffer and gave him the lighting plan/vision ahead of time. We had a 20 minute window in magic hour to land this 4 minute choreographed long shot that involved the actors doing dance and singing. This was a marketing piece for a yoga clothing / fashion company that believes in giving back.
