Hi Everybody,
I am shooting a commercial for a company that produces kitchen gadgets and vacuum cleaners. (Intended for the web) I'll be shooting with canon mark III, i have access to pretty much everything that i need for lighting and grip. The studio floor is black, shiny, and very reflective. Back drop is very dark gray (almost like black) and non reflective. It'll start with a top shot of a woman, who struggles with a different brand vacuum and so on... I'll also have some close-up product shots(obviously) and etc. This is the first time I am working with this agency and I want to give them something different, of course, I don't want to re-invent the wheel but I sure can use some creative advice from whomever is available to spare me some of their time.
Thank you,

A vacuum cleaner?

 

Why not try to show what happens to a carpet under this one?

With toothpaste you often see clean teeth, so it might be worth a thought on a dust-free nap, how it breathes back. Just an idea

Use a piece of plexi and shoot from "under the floor" up to see the vacum in action?

 

I've done a few infomercials - always trying to come up with new ways to spin the old.
