Are any of the early shots in this video keyed do you think?

I'm assuming not and it's just the way they are lit but theres at least one shot that looks like it could be keyed and I'm wondering what makes it look that way exactly.

Hi Freya I think It's real at least for the most part, It does look a bit off place but I think it's the keylight(helicopter) that make's it look fake, If you look at the last scene a camera projection like that would of been out of there budget (IMHO) as usually it would of cut just before the camera comes up past the roof, but cause it keeps going that would require Allot more work or to be real, Don't know if that helps

It's definitely at least partly real, but I wondered if one of the shots was green screened. It would be easy to sell as the other shots are real. Don't think budget was a problem too much. I think the last scene in daylight might have been a small technocrane. The earlier shots were mostly steadicam with a big light on a huge yellow cherry picker crane type thing that twowered into the sky. There are a few shots with the camera on the cherry picker too at the start.

I think at about 12 seconds in it looks kinda keyed but I'm guessing it's just the lighting.
I think the idea of lighting that makes things look keyed and unreal is an interesting one tho.

The thing I really like in this ad is the last scene with the daylight coming and the bird sounds. I know there was some worry they were going to end up losing the dark but I think the arrival of daylight really adds to it and I'm very keen on that kind of embracing the situation kind of creativeness.
